AT&T and Sprint may support 3G Nexus One soon

Slightly stale news, but news none-the-less… Word has it that there could be a Nexus One in the works for both AT&T and Sprint with their supported 3G bands.

Different sources with different tidbits of crumbs, our geeky friends at Gizmodo was kind enough to pull them together.

Short story: There is an FCC filing for a Nexus One that works over WCDMA bands I, II, and V. These are the 3G bands the not only AT&T use, but also many Canadian carriers. Also, a recent inquiry to Sprint Customer Solutions has surfaced. Notice the bold items.

Thank you for contacting Sprint regarding the nexus one.

Unfortunately, this handset model is not on offer as of now.

Once it is launched, you will see promotional campaigns related to the
launch date, cost and the features of the handset on our Web site and
other promotional media.

Thank you for showing interest in our products & services. Please let us
know if you would like us to assist you with anything else.

We all know by now that you can purchase an unlocked Nexus One from Google that works on T-Mobile’s networks, as well as AT&T (sans 3G). This is good news for those users dying to get a N1 but requires 3G (who doesn’t require 3G?).
