For a brief moment, Samsung’s web site had the two-toned “pearly white” Android smartphone up on the site showing that it’s an AT&T compatible device. As it stands right now, it’s hard to say if the handset will follow the same route with T-Mobile’s version, since it’s only sold through third party retailers, or rather, be sold directly by a carrier much like the Google Nexus S 4G with Sprint.
Interestingly enough though, this version of the Nexus S is going by the model number GT-I9020A, rather than SGH-Ixx7 that normally notates it as a Samsung smartphone sold through a carrier. If that’s the case, then we’ll probably see this version go through third party retail channels once again.
Lastly, it’ll be interesting to see whether or not the handset will flaunt HSPA+ speeds, especially when the website doesn’t confirm if it’s a 4G device. And when it comes to pricing, it could either sway to $99 on-contract, which is where Tmo’s version is selling for through Best Buy, or $200 for the 4G equipped Google Nexus S 4G with Sprint.
