Google Nexus One T-Mobile 3G confirmed; EDGE only on AT&T

Google Nexus One T-Mobile 3G confirmed; EDGE only on AT&T

The Google Nexus One hands-on reports continue to trickle in, and after Peek CEO Amol Sarva's reasonably glowing feedback earlier in the week, now it's tnkgrl who has spent some time playing with the Android 2.1 smartphone.  No photos - they weren't allowed - but plenty of interesting news, including confirmation that the Nexus One only supports T-Mobile USA 3G; you'll be limited to EDGE on AT&T.  Contrasting with earlier speculation that Google might be looking to bypass carrier-voice altogether and instead use VoIP over data, tnkgrl found that voice calls are routed in the regular way.

Elsewhere there's both a microUSB port and a number of gold connections on the bottom of the handset, which are presumably for docking with Google Nexus One accessories like a car kit.

Bored of the Google Nexus One yet?  Details - and hands-on reports - keep filtering through, and while much of it is still speculation we're gradually building up a picture of what Google may have in mind.  Peek's Amol Sarva is the latest to play with the Android 2.1 smartphone, and while he's reasonably impressed with the hardware - he describes the Nexus One as "definitely nice" - he still reckons it's a pretty mainstream iPhone clone.

Google Nexus One has T-Mobile 3G says FCC [Updated]

Google Nexus One has T-Mobile 3G says FCC [Updated]

The Google Nexus One spills keep on coming, and hot on the heels of leaked shots of the Android 2.1 smartphone in action comes an FCC filing with some juicy UMTS/HSDPA details.  According to the filing, as well as quadband GSM/EDGE the Nexus One has support for both AT&T and T-Mobile 3G in the US, thanks to a triband 850/1700/1900 radio.

Update: Looks like things may not be so clean-cut as first believed.  While the triband radio is listed, it apparently has support for the I, IV, and VIII bands but incorrectly includes AT&T 3G support in the VIII band.  That means T-Mobile users in the US will be fine - together with European users - but AT&T support isn't yet confirmed.

Google Nexus One phone

Google Nexus One phone

It’s fascinating how news can spread so quickly even on a late Saturday afternoon. Earlier today, Google publicly confirmed on their blog that they’ve handed out a new Android 2.1 powered device to employees worldwide. These very phones now have a name – Google Nexus One phone.

Update: Another new in-the-wild photo, courtesy of Twitter user Cory O'Brien. He says "Google Phone = iPhone + a little extra screen and a scroll wheel. Great touch screen, and Android."

Update 2: More intrigue, as industry insider Eldar Murtazin - who we last heard predicting Foxconn as the supplier for the 4th-gen Apple iPhone - claims the Google Nexus One speculation is off the mark and that the incorrect rumors may initially have been driven by Apple.  Full details after the cut.

Google is making it really hard to get a Nexus phone this year

Google is making it really hard to get a Nexus phone this year

Google’s Nexus might set the bar for Android, but it probably won’t be a gift you give or receive this holiday season. After a report Google was discontinuing their Nexus 5, Google confirmed it was still around — just on a sabbatical. Google says the Nexus 5 will be back next year, likely in January. With that, we’ve got little recourse for actually snapping up a Nexus smartphone right now, since both are out of stock via Google Play. If you were hoping to see a Nexus in someone’s hands this year, you might be out of luck.
