Nexus One for AT&T may be in the works

FCC documents reveal a phone that could be Google's Nexus One designed for AT&T's network

Google may be gearing up to increase the availability of the Nexus One Android phone in the US.

New filings with the U.S. Federal Communications Commission indicate that a new version of the device that will run on AT&T’s network may be in the works. Currently, the Nexus One works on T-Mobile’s network. People who buy the unlocked version for US$530 can use the phone on AT&T’s network for voice calls and slower data connections, but they cannot use 3G.

The FCC filings show that HTC has built a phone that runs on AT&T’s network, meaning it would support 3G. The documents do not name the phone as the Nexus One, but the identification number is one digit off from the current version of the Nexus One.

An AT&T spokesman declined to confirm that the documents show the Nexus One will become available for AT&T.

Google did not reply to e-mailed questions.

Engadget first spotted the FCC documents.

Google may also be looking at other ways to increase distribution of the phones. Currently, Google exclusively sells the phone through its online store. However, last week a detailed page promoting the Nexus One appeared on Wal-Mart’s wireless sales Web site. Google said it had no plans to sell the phone anywhere but its own site, and Wal-Mart said the page had been posted in error. It has since been removed.

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
