More pictures and latest update on the HTC Nexus One
According to Engadget, the HTC Nexus One, aka the Google Phone, has been visiting the FCC. And while the visit did reveal some expected features like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 2.1 and memory expansion via a microSD slot, more importantly, the visit revealed the bands that the device will operate on. The frequencies suggest that in the U.S., while the idea is to sell the phone unlocked, 3G capabilities would be available on T-Mobile. The Engadget story notes that bands I, IV and VIII reveal the T-Mobile connection and that an incorrect placement of the 815-880 MHz frequencies in VIII by the test lab puts AT&T compatibility in doubt. Hopefully, this will get cleared up soon. In the meantime though, besides T-Mobile in the U.S., there is also a host of European bands covered and as one would expect, upload speed should hit 2Mbps and download speed should reach 7.2Mbps. As for the pictures, note that they show the handset running on Android 2.1 and that the lock screen and the car navigation screen both are the same as seen on the Motorola DROID.
