Do you think if I buy it from ebay it would still work? Will I be missing any kind of special stuff that works only on US but not here?

I was thinking of getting X10, has almost the same features. And I am using Xperia (which is an awesome phone), so I thought I will just move to X10 if I can't get Nexus. Roger is going to get X10 somewhere in july.

So is it worth trying to get Nexus or X10 is enough?
Getting the nexus means you will have no 3g support on rogers. Its up to you if you want to get the x10. You could also get the Milestone when it comes out for telus and use that. There are plenty of choices just chose one with the features you need or want

Well with rogers I am getting the HSDPA ( the H icon in the phone) connection. ANd about milestone I am not sure, it has only 568Mhz processor. Whereas Nexus and X10 has 1GHz!!!!

I actually didn't know that telus is getting Milestone. If their plans are great then I would definitely switch over.

The milestone's processor is not that much slower then the Nexus one. In some categories the Milestone beat the Nexus One. Ala Graphics performance. Speed isn't everything the architecture comes first. You will not receive HSDPA on the nexus one it is impossible as rogers does not support 900/1700 bands that is AWS and only WIND in canada has any towers that support it.

But right now I have Xperia and I am getting HSPA connection every time I am trying to access the internet, I don't remember where but I heard roger supports all the frequencies now.

But as you are saying Milestone is as good as Nexus I guess I will get a milestone then (the phone looks awesome, and I am into keyboards too.). Thanks

Hey, i'm from canada and just got nexus one a few days ago. As soon as I got it, I charged the battery and went over to my local Wind Dealer... It was pretty pathetic what they had set up, a little movable cart with phones on display and a laptop to set up new clients but within minutes I was set up on wind and made a call :P The price is right($25 a month for 100 provincial minutes, which saves me on long distance, unlimited text, call display, call transfer, voice mail well all the extras in that category)

I'm loving the phone, didn't bother with a data plan since im ussually just on campus that has fast wireless and theres free wifi almost everywhere now a days :P

Anyways, I got mine off ebay for $600, took about 3 days to arrive and didn't even have to pay taxes! Definently a good investment and I love the fact I didn't have to give a penny to those greedy bastards at apple...

Looks like there is a new version of the N1 that will run on the AT&T network so it should run on Rogers.

What's more is that it sports the 3G bands used by AT&T in the United States (and Telus, Rogers and Bell in Canada). As for whether it's coming to any of those carriers or will even be available unlocked remains to be seen. But we've got our fingers crossed.

The Nexus One is so far one of the most powerful phones ever (next to Nokia N900 and X10). Wind doesn't subsidize its phones, so a Nexus One from Wind should be unlocked, but you'll have to pay A LOT for the phone. Wind plans are so good though. $35 unlimited talk with free caller id, 50 texts, and some extra features. $45 unlimited talk, unlimited text, voicemail and some features too. I know I sound like an advertiser, but these plans are so good. :'((( Still have 2.5 years with Rogers gonna become 3 if I choose to get a free Magic, so I'll be stuck with paying 60 a month before access fees. oh and Wind has no access fees unlimited internet add-on 35/month Already decided

xperia looks like a great phone but your would think they would release it with 2.0 .... not sure i would want to buy a outdated locked to rogers rom phone again after my dream/magic experience.....xperia has their custom apps on their and just wonder how long they will make customers wait for 2.0-.2.1

with the nexus one and Motorola working on a Google phone,maby their will be a trend of carriers staying out of customizing these roms and instead having apps placed on these phones so the manufactures can update these phones to the latest software and not have to create custom roms to their specific needs.

anyhow i will be happy to buy a nexus one as long as it is not loaded up with any carrier based software.

once those AT&T phones hit the market i will be getting one....

Hi There. FYI. The UX platform used for the XPERIA X10 will evolve to Android 2.x over time.

Hope that helps,

Thanks for that tidbit mary,u would think for a phone thats not even out yet they would come with 2.0 and not be outdated before they are even released.I understand to certain degree with the Dream and the Magic but not a new phone just coming onto the market.I would hope all phones would evolve to 2.0 and past that but they really should be released with the latest software.These are just my personal feelings but never the less it looks like a great phone and sure it will be popular and look forward to covering it's release and reviews in my blog/site.

@RogersMary
You can read my exchange with LG here Sony X10 a Canadian Exclusive

While they say the X10 is capable of "evolving" to 2.x, they don't specify if it will happen for these phones on _Rogers_. It would be nice to have confirmation that it will happen for _Rogers_ X10s.

Also, you will notice they say “Android 2.1 and beyond is a little beyond our scope at this point but stay tuned.”

If Walmart in the states does end up selling the N1, you can place an order for it online, have one shipped to the nearest Walmart in the states and pick it up in person. I'm only about a 30min drive from a Walmart in the states myself.

According to this article "Google and hardware manufacturer HTC are preparing a version [of the Nexus One] that supports the WCDMA bands I, II, and V, the 3G frequencies used not only by AT&T but also Canadian wireless providers Rogers, Bell Canada, and Telus Mobility.":

According to an article I read on the net (which must be true, because it's on the internet ) Nexus One will ONLY get 3G on the Wind network. On the Rogers network, it'll fall back to 2G, but with Telus and Bell it has no fallback as their 2G is CDMA based (or something to that effect).
Someone had posted a comment confirming no internet on Telus.

Did that article mention that one of the next dozen Nexus phones will work on our network and another one will work on the others? That's why it has the moniker "One". There will be a Two, Three, ....

Thumbs up It's finally here - Nexus One - for Rogers!

You can now order online from Google a Nexus One with Rogers 3G Bands.
It will cost $529 (US) + pst, shipping, customs, (etc.)

If anyone does order one, can you please let us know how much those additional charges are?

Why? If you don't want to read it, you don't have to. ;-)

Technically it's still a valid topic anyway. The title is "Google Nexus One Android phone in Canada?" which is phrased such that it could refer to a question about any news about the N1 in Canada, not just whether or not it's coming to Canada.

So, can Canadians buy the Nexus One (AT&T, Roges) directly from Google's website? Just curious.

Inquiring minds want to know, that is if you are from Canada, what “other” fees did you pay besides the cost of the phone.

I was going to order the N1 the other day but i'm going to wait for the X10 to come out.. and watch some reviews... I know someone that works at one of the Rogers warehouses in Toronto. They had said they already have x10 units shipping in... so its only a few weeks could be as soon as the 28th of march or the 1st week of April.

I just want to compare them.. think i'm going to wait before I spend $630 for the Nexus1 or around $199 for the X10 on renew of my contract.

The Nexus One (codenamed HTC Passion) was Google's flagship smartphone manufactured by Taiwan's HTC Corporation. It became available on January 5, 2010 and uses the Android open source mobile operating system. Features of the phone include the ability to transcribe voice to text, an additional microphone for dynamic noise suppression,and voice guided turn-by-turn navigation to drivers.


The device is sold unlocked (not restricted to use on a single network provider). Google offered T-Mobile and AT&T versions of the phone online in the United States before closing the online store in July 2010. A version for use on Vodafone (European) networks was announced on 26 April 2010, available in the UK on 30 April 2010. On March 16, 2010, the Nexus One device became available on the Google web store for sale in Canada for use with most Canadian carriers. In May 2010 Google announced the closing of the web store, with the intention to distribute the phone through partners around the world.
