The earliest reports on the Google Nexus One said that this model will offer support for both AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s 3G networks, but this apparently isn’t the case. Instead, anyone using this Android-powered smartphone will be limited to AT&T’s 2.5G network.
Loyalitics, who tracks mobile data usage for carriers and software developers, reports that those who are using Google’s smartphone on T-Mobile’s network are connecting at 3G speeds, while those who are on AT&T’s network are using EDGE.
This helps support the unconfirmed reports that those who buy the Nexus One will have the option to add T-Mobile service.
Loyalitics also reports that Google’s smartphone is being used outside of the U.S., and this must be a slightly different version, as it offers 3G in Australia, Germany and the Netherlands.
So far, this company hasn’t seen any signs of a CDMA version of the Nexus One, just GSM.
More about the Google Nexus One
Many Nexus One units were given to Google employees last week. According to this company, this smartphone is intended to allow its employees to try out Android software that hasn’t been released to the public.
However, quite a few unconfirmed reports say that Google plans to put this device on sale to those outside of the company.
The Nexus One is almost certainly a version of the HTC Bravo, a model that expected to hit the market next year. As such, it has a tablet shape with a 3.7-inch, WVGA, AM-OLED display and optical trackpad.
It runs Android OS 2.1 on a 1 GHz Snapdragon processor, and it has support for both AT&T’s and T-Mobile’s 3G networks.
In addition, this model has a 5 MPx camera, GPS receiver, and a microSD memory card slot.
