Today, Google has announced via its blog that its six-months old flagship handset, the Nexus S, is heading to AT&T.
The AT&T version of Nexus S will ship with the exact same specs as its T-Mobile or Sprint version, which includes a 1GHz Hummingbird, 512MB of RAM, 16GB on-board storage, NFC and a 4-inch Super-AMOLED screen with WVGA (800×480) resolution.
Up until now, the Nexus S was available only under T-Mobile and Sprint network. Even though the addition of AT&T will help the Nexus S to gain market share, it does not downplay the fact that the handset is more than 6 months old. The only advantage the Nexus S holds over its hardware-wise superior competitors, is that being a Nexus branded phone, the handset will get Android updates
Interested users, can already pre-order the Nexus S at Best Buy. The handset will hit the Best Buy store shelves on July 24.
Hopefully, if Google ever intends to launch the Nexus S under Verizon’s network, they will do so before they announce the next Nexus handset.
