"Google continues to make strides with its Nexus One smartphone. After revealing details to have a Nexus One version for Verizon and Vodafone, documents on FCC’s site suggest Google could be working on an AT&T version with full voice and data support over the carrier’s network.

FCC has approved a device from HTC, maker of the original Nexus One, with a model number 99110. The original Nexus One had model number 99100.

Soon after the word leaked about the possible AT&T Nexus One, the FCC pulled documents from its site. Speculation suggests that because Google and HTC aren’t saying anything, they might be in negotiations with AT&T to offer the device on a subsidy. If AT&T declines, Google may go ahead and offer the device online at the Nexus One Store and leave getting data service up to users."

 

If this is true then here's hoping that we can get a "true" world fone that will work in 3G on all three NZ carriers..

If the frequencies match AT&T (UMTS 850, etc..) then it would be a match for Telecom XT.......much like the existing iPhone being sold here by Vodafone.....but better-suited (as far as 3G is concerned) for use on Telecom XT. 


If the new Nexus One did UMTS 850 *and* 900 (no such phone currently exists anywhere).....as well as the 2100 supported in most places......*THEN* we have a 'world phone'.

Very interesting indeed.

As noted, AT&T do run the same network type as Telecom XT.
This article explains why Nexus won't work on Telecom. - http://gigaom.com/2010/01/11/a.../

Been developing for Android recently and needed to buy test devices. My service plan is from Telecom. So it's been driving me crazy to have great phones just lying around useless. This will certainly cheer me up. Hope it's true.

& I'm all for them releasing a world phone - very disruptive.

swiftideas: A phone that can do UMTS 2100 will work on Telecom XT in most of the cities in NZ. My HTC Magic is a UMTS 900/2100 device (plus GSM, of course)....and can also very happily do Telecom XT at home and at work as Telecom XT have 2100 coverage in both locations (both on North Shore).

Linuxluver: Yeah I can make calls from the office (city) but get no service at home (west). So it's pointless really. I may as well keep my SIM in something that works. Also I'm no carrier guru but voice seems to work far better than data when I do get service. Do you know if the 2100 network prioritizes voice traffic?

Cheers
