Google Announces New Nexus One, Compatible With AT&T and Rogers 3G Bands
Google might have found out about the poor sales performance of the Nexus One, so they want to expand, thus launching a new version of the Nexus One, compatible with more bands. This GSM unit comes with support for AT&T and Rogers Wireless 3G/UMTS connectivity. It supports 850/1900/2100 MHz bands and it goes for the same price of $529.
We remind you that the original model supported the T-Mobile-friendly 900/AWS/2100 MHz bands, so this is a welcome addition. This decision opens the market to more types of users, although we haven’t heard of any subsidy option.
T-Mobile is still offering the device, with rumours that HTC is shipping CDMA versions of the Nexus One, getting ready to sell them on Verizon.
