Google Phone On AT&T: Nexus One Hits A New Network

05/16/2010 05:12 am ET | Updated May 25, 2011

The Nexus One, aka the 'Google Phone,' is coming to two new networks: AT&T and Rogers Wireless (in Canada).

Google explained in a press release:

In early January, we announced the Nexus One, the first device sold through Google's web store. The Nexus One is unlocked, which means you can use it with a SIM card from most GSM operators worldwide. Currently the device is compatible with most 3G networks, including T-Mobile in the US. However, there are some carriers that have different 3G frequencies, such as AT&T in the US and Rogers Wireless in Canada, so users with these SIM cards can only access 2G or EDGE networks on their Nexus One.

Starting today, an additional version of the Nexus One is available from the Google web store that is compatible with AT&T's 3G network. This new model can be purchased as an unlocked device without a service plan. In addition to AT&T's 3G network, this device will also run on Rogers Wireless in Canada. And like the first version of the Nexus One, it can be used with most GSM operators globally.

The phone, which is available online, will cost $529, according to Google.
