Well, surely a bad piece of news, but Google has promised to fix up this Android operating system bug.

Found now, but the bug has originated in 2010 and is still around. It is usual practice that with every Android update Google fix up major bugs, but this somehow remained.

According to tech website Android Police, the search web giant has acknowledged the bug and has also said to be fixing it up with the Android 4.2 update.

Google has acknowledged the bug is in the Wi-Fi Networking module of its mobile operating system. It says if advanced user connects to Wi-Fi Network specifying Domain name, the operating system will not be resolving the host name if the domain name is not changed to host name.

As Android is an open platform, developers can test all the new versions and report issues, if any, to Google. After the reports Google Android team can work on the issues and come out with fixes in the next or upcoming Android update.

Well, Google will take some time to come up with the next Android update. Please wait and don't workaround with "rooting" your Android device. It will void the warranty.
