    AT&T 3G supports 850MHz right?

    ..
    Because I desperately want a Nexus One but the best network for me here in New Zealand is Telecom XT (850MHz) and I don't want to go on Vodafone (2100MHz) just so I can use this phone

    Would be nice, but I don't see Apple letting this happen too quickly.

    Why would Apple have a say in what frequency someone elses phone can receive.....?

    Apple shouldn't be worried. I'm sure the Nexus-one on the AT&T network will drop calls just as much as the Iphone.... ;)

    I highly doubt we'll see a ATT version.

    I use AT&T. I hope that the unlocked version is less than $530.

    I hope the rumors are true and a AT&T version is also released, however I don't think it will happen. We would have seen something on the FCC website by now if it was coming this week.

    I really really hope this will happen. If not I'll just have to deal with EDGE.

    although i hope she has the same or better sources than BGR, its probably repeated rumor versus true sources. However, I like BGR's track record for rumors and personally will slap down the $530 for the phone the moment they are available for AT&T.

    I think its funny we haven't seen a AT&T version out in the wild nor something from the FCC to which my basis for doubt comes from :) but we can always hope :D

    Again, the N1 will almost certainly be "available" for ATT, but not with the 3G frequencies, or with ATT offering a subsidized price and "enhanced" rate plan.

    But my question is for the engineers in the room. Exactly what would need to be done to the phone to equip it for ATT's 3G services? I assume it involves adding or replacing the radio to get a different set of frequencies, but is there much more to it than that?

    Obviously there are business issues galore, but I'm really just asking about the technical difficulty of coming out with a phone that will support 3G on both TMO and ATT.
