AT&T-Compatible Nexus One Now Available

According to MobileCrunch, the Nexus One, which may not have sold incredibly well, but is still regarded as a capable Android unit, is now compatible with AT&T’s 3G network. The T-Mobile version of the Nexus One, which worked with AT&T provided you didn’t hop on AT&T’s network, has gained additional functionality according to a post on Google’s Nexus One blog.

The announcement comes as a bit of a surprise given that the Nexus One has yet to clear the FCC and Google made no mention of it whilst heralding
that the Verizon Nexus One was “Coming Soon!”.

The Nexus One handset is only being sold unlocked and without a contract, meaning there’s no means of obtaining a subsidized AT&T discount, which would imply that AT&T wasn’t interested in officially offering the phone to customers, especially with the iPhone on the market.

Stay tuned for additional details as this story develops and if you’ve snagged a Nexus One, let us know what you make of it.
