UPDATE: Nexus One Unlocked for AT&T

Earlier this year, we announced the Nexus One(Google Unveils the Nexus One, January6), the first device created by Google and sold through its web store. We told you that 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. but, there are some carriers that have different 3G frequencies, such as AT&T, so users with these SIM cards can only access 2G or EDGE networks on their Nexus One.

Starting today, another 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 one caveat is the cost, remember, we told you it is $529 for this unlocked version. For other issues we reported before you are off to the Google Store check out out Google Nexus Perlexes-Not Quite in the Game posted on January 26. Hopefully they are making strides to correct all of these things.
