Nexus One AT&T and Rogers Wireless Support

This does not mean that the Nexus One will be officially sold through AT&T or Rogers, instead it means that the unlocked version of Nexus One now supports the 3G network for both these providers. This means that the Nexus One now supports Supports three 3G/UMTS bands (850/1900/2100 MHz) and four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900 MHz) in addition to the 3G/UMTS bands (900/AWS/2100 MHz) and four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900 MHz).

Users will not be able to buy the phone in retail stores yet and will have to visit, google.com/phone to make a purchase. Nexus One has had really bad sales figures and unless Google starts selling the phone in retail stores, it will continue to lag behind other devices.
