For better of worse, plenty of people are hoping to see a version of the Nexus One that has support for AT&T’s 3G bands. I say for better or worse because I am not really sure anyone wants to see AT&T grab another powerful Internet capable smartphone, but that said the AT&T coverage (at least in my area) is rock solid. Much better than T-Mobile.
Anyway, it looks like those hoping may get their wish for the AT&T capable Nexus One may be happy. A new FCC filing was recently dug up and it shows that a possible new version has support for “3G on WCDMA Bands I, II, and V.”
Basically that means that this possible new version of the Nexus One would work on AT&T, along with Rogers, Bell and Telus. Good news for those in the US and Canada. And as a little icing on the cake, most of Europe also.
So lets see it Google. You want to see the Nexus One succeed. Well offering a version that has 3G support for most of the major carriers around the world sounds like a good start.
