New Nexus One will work on AT&T and Rogers

New Nexus One will work on AT&T and Rogers
When the Nexus One launched earlier this year, it was made avaliable for T-Mobile, though Google said that other versions would eventually be released. Even though it's still not out for Verizon and Vodafone customers, starting today you can pick-up a version that will work with AT&T in the US and Rogers in Canada. This new version is compatible with 3G/UMTS (850/900/2100 MHz) and GSM radio (850/900/1800/1900 MHz). This is different from the T-Mobile version, which uses 3G/UMTS (900/AWS/2100 MHz). Currently the new AT&T/Rogers version of the Nexus One is avaliable for purchase through the Google phone store as unlocked for $529, which is the same price as the unlocked version for T-Mobile, yet T-Mobile does offer it for $179 if you are signing a 2-year contract. There is no word yet if AT&T and Rogers will be offering the Nexus One at a discount price with contract extension.

Well some people didn't like your comment but I came here to say the same thing. I hope it's not true for those people that want the Nexus on AT&T but I fear the iPhone and the superior Nexus on the same crap nework won't fair well. Although I have a feeling thats why there's no discount pricing in an attempt to slow the sales down, or maybe Steve Jobs had something to do with that.

What are you guys talking about? AT&T's system may not have 3G everywhere, but it has great coverage in general and I never have problems with it.

Ya'll are funny..apparently you're not paying attention. AT&T is releasing a phone from HTC called the Desire. Which by the way is slightly better than the N1. Of course this is in anticipation of them losing the iphone exclusivity this spring. I have Verizon for my work cell and AT&T as my personal and I do alot of traveling throughout Northern CA. Lets just say that I have my work email pushed to my personal cell due to a lack of coverage.

Awsome, now everyone will have it except Sprint! aaahhhh! The freakin Supersonic better be around the corner cause it looks like we're getting that instead of the N1.

Phonearena seems to think Sprint's getting it.... and if I were a shareholder I'd hope that Google would open it to all the carriers to try to sell a few more. Of course they also list Sprint as getting the Touch Diamond 2.

Well, Sprint thinks they're getting it too: http://newsreleases.sprint.com/phoenix.zhtml?c=127149&p=irol-news_newsroom&nyo=0 OVERLAND PARK, Kan., Mar 17, 2010 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Nexus One, the first wireless phone sold through Google(TM)'s web store, is planned for Sprint's 3G Mobile Broadband Network. Sprint (NYSE:S) will announce pricing and an exact availability date soon. Nexus One will benefit from Sprint's 3G network with twice the coverage of AT&T and 10 times the coverage of T-Mobile, both based on square miles.

Finally, AT&T gets something better than the iPhone. I wonder how much turnover Apple will suffer from this...lol I guess that'll make it an "Apple turnover" :P

AT&T could have brought this along sooner. I travel the east coast and midwest fairly often. Though I find AT&T service can eventually be found, I'm frustrated that it's so spotty in NY/NY/PA. Too many unconnected/disconnected calls and 3G service really isn't as good as map says. I'm even less than a mile from a large AT&T office and tower complex. If I was going to get the N1, I'd probably tough it out on AT&T due to GSM. Still think Google needs to solve the app storage shortcoming so this phone could really stand out though. That said, I'm willing to skip this and take a flyer on Sprint if they get it right with the HTC Supersonic and release it soon. Have heard nothing but raves about Wimax in Philly so if NYC makes it, that's where I really could use the highest data speeds, especially if they keep the current 3g/Unlimited 4g price plans.

ok so apparently ATT has the worst coverage from some and i'm so sorry to hear that other providers are just the same. But i think until ATT gets better coverage i agree with previous bloggers if they had issue with iphone networking data nex one isn't going to help xperia x10 FOR PRESIDENT!!!!
