Looks like Google's Nexus One will soon see support enabled for Wireless-N in the Broadcom chip in the phone. 

If you've already rooted your Nexus One, not to worry, Cyanogen (Steve Kondick) has already included the source in his next release....though today he said via Twitter there has been another firmware update since the last one a week ago.

The link includes a low-quality video of the update in action after it was compiled from source by one of Cyanogen's mates.

Whilst wireless n is something i'm looking forward to having enabled, i wonder about how much i will use it. 

If i could actually find a useful wireless sync program for the N1 that sync'd everything including a music folder then i'd be happy as larry to have n-spec, but otherwise i just flick in the USB cable and copy away.

Off topic, but on that note, has anyone reading this found a nice sync program?

I have it on my HTC HD2, enabled via registry hack, I presume all the Snapdragon powered HTC phones will be able to do this?

The main benefit of Wireless-N may be enhanced range.

For syncing music, I've played with "iSyncr" which works with iTunes. I have a few songs bought via Apple's iTunes and wanted to play them on my Android phone. iSyncr syncs them to the phone as *.mp4 files and they play quite happily. But it's Windows-based at the PC end and I don't buy much on iTunes anyway. Especially after iTunes wiped out $150 worth of music one day and forgot i had bought it. 

But most of my music is mp3 or ogg files ripped from my CDs. I don't bother syncing them as I never have more then 50 songs on the phone anyway. That's roughly 200 minutes of music without a repeat and I *never* get 3 solid hours to listen to tunes on my phone. I just put it on shuffle / repeat...and add / substract a handful of songs each week to "freshen" things up.

There are several android apps that do sync with the PC. DoubleTwist is supposed to be good. But they all assume you have a Windows or Mac PC...and all my music is on Linux...and I have no interest in using Windows for this purpose.
