Is AT&T Getting Ready For Google’s Nexus One?

nexus one att1The Nexus One was Google’s way of breaking free from the confines of mobile carriers that sold phones running on the Google Android OS.  Of course, just having a lot of different phones running your operating system seemed like a really great idea to me.  I thought of it as the “Windows operating system” but more mobile phone – and we know how successful that was for Bill Gates – it made him the wealthiest man in the world.

According to Engadget, there is new filing found in FCC’s database that possibly shows the Nexus One is getting ready for AT&T’s 3G network.

Here’s more from Engadget:

That brings us to an FCC finding today. Take a look at the two labels above; the one on the right comes from the current Nexus One. The label on the left, meanwhile, is physically identical and comes from a new filing for a device with FCC ID NM899110. The old Nexus One has ID NM899100, so this new device is just a single digit off — likely a variant of the existing model. If you look into the RF reports a bit, you’ll immediately notice that the new handset supports 3G on WCDMA Bands I, II, and V, meaning that it’ll work on AT&T (and Rogers, Bell, and Telus for the Canadians in the room) along with most of Europe. Same label style, nearly identical model ID, different bands — we think we know what’s going on here. Google, your move.
