AT&T soon to gets its own Nexus One?

AT&T soon to gets its own Nexus One?
If you remember, the idea behind the Nexus One was to change the way phones are distributed in the U.S. with the retailers and the carriers bypassed. Unfortunately, thus far the N-One hasn't been able to totally accomplish this change because of the current radio set-up in the device, which limits 3G coverage to T-Mobile's frequencies. Today, an FCC label was discovered on a new FCC filing for a phone with  FCC ID NM899110 while the N-One has an FCC ID of NM899100. That is only one digit off of the phone in the new filing which could lead a suspicious mind to think that the new filing is a variant of the Nexus One. And the suspicions could be fed by noting that the new filing covers a device that includes 3G coverage on WCDMA bands I, II and V. Those bands cover AT&T in the U.S. and Bell, Rogers and Telus in Canada. Now what would a suspicious mind think?

Who cares if we dont get the N-1.... We still are getting some android based phones and we still have the best smartphone on the globe. Here's a hint, it's made by Apple:)

Ok another Iphone fanboy, no just cause Apple shot a phone out of their asses doesn't mean it the best phone in the world. Actually there are many phones that beat the iphone in comparison to performance, ability, and specs. So thats go ahead I'm not even going to continue to argue about it. Also I don't even want to get into the fact AT&T is actually the worst network in the county despite what AT&T and iphone fanboys say about it.

To its credit the iPhone is the best Smartphone for dumb people. Don't think that I'm saying that everyone that owns an iPhone is dumb, because that's not the case (although it would be a funny claim to make and watch the anger boil over). I say this because the iPhone is a very easy-to-learn and intuitive Smarphone. Its awesome for people that don't know about or have experience with other Smartphones. It appeals to the average consumer, rather than to a heavy business user or techie. As aracanelli513 said, it doesn't have the best specs compared to other phones out there. It doesn't have the ability to do tasks that are considered standard on other Smartphones (multitasking and tethering to name a few). The only factual claims that you could make about it would be #1 selling and biggest app store. Other than that, the iPhone is not #1 on any lists.

Hater. There are many imitation products of many products, but none get it right or better because they are biters and not innovators. Android is on most carriers so it is not VZW exclusive.

So defensive, I'm sorry did I hurt another vzw roid owner's feelings who thought that apple and vzw partnered an alliance on wednesday? NOT!!!!! Read the articles, websites, newspapers, magazines, etc,etc. Call it what you want when you want too but facts are facts and that is even as a third generation product, there isn't a "smartphone" out there that is more global or better yet stateside evolved than the Iphone. Case closed. Go chew on that for a bit and stop the Apple/Iphone HATING:). Food for thought. If apple came out with a cdma version of the iphone for vzw, not only would it outsell what the roid did since it came out but honestly 25-30% of current vzw customers would find a way to get rid of whatever phone they had and get the cdma version of the Iphone. We all know it, so just face facts. The truth hurts, I know but it is the truth!!

I'm on CDMA, and I want no part of the iPhone, thank you. So add me to that "25-30%". FTR, I don't own a smart phone, but have demoed both the iPhone and multiple Android phones. Google kills it, no offence. Apple will do it's normal hibernation here in the next few years, the iWhatever will die from neglect. Bigger/better/more compatible/more user friendly are terms that Apple fears and runs from. Hence the AppleII, the OG Mac, and countless other "hypebeast" devices. Peace.

I don't want the iphone on Verizon's network. I don't want the ipad. I really don't want the network killer coming to Verizon so that masses of disgruntled AT&T customers migrate over and bog down the network. Things are fine, and when my Nexus One or Incredible or whatever high end Android phone shows up from Fed Ex, I want to rest assured that my power user smartphone experience is untainted by the Cupertino cult. This is a free country and if you want to overpay for underspec'ed hardware and feature limited software, by all means, have at it.

LOL really corporate? Apple's item will die from neglect? Are you really that ignorant? If anything, Apple is gonna take over the world and start a communist war and thats how we will die :] But honestly, Apple is doing so well right now. We have the fanboys of the Droid software. There's always gonna be fanboys of any good software. The Droid has its perks and I will say Droid is in the lead right now for software and features. BUT, it took them about 3 years to get here. You really think Apple is going to just watch and fail? I don't think so. I'm sure the next iPhone is gonna have something amazing again. Yea, I will say the iPad isn't the everything everyone was expecting. It was sooooo overhyped and it almost seemed kinda like they didn't really put effort into it. But, I think Apple will throw something for everyone to chew on for a while in June.

The iphone customer base is comprised mostly of crybaby ass complainers, mostly because of how pathetic your network is. I also estimate that in about 5 months, they'll be crying and complaining about getting a subsidized next-gen iphone early upgrade from their 10 month old 3gs just like last time around.

How do you figure? The majority of At&t customers have no problem with their service including myself(Greater DC area)Actually the service is superb. Fast internet with 3G and rarely dropped calls with 3G, and ur right since this is a FREE country and i can afford it, If I chose I will buy my 4th generation prize straight with no early upgrade penalty. It will be just an improvement to "The best smartphone on the planet". IPhone F.E.E. And i mean everything.
