    I'm not sure what 3G bands AT&T uses so if someone could help me out here it would be greatly appreciated.

    Sorry, but that's wrong. It's missing the 850MHz frequency. No AT&T 3G in the U.S. You'll be able to get 3G outside of the US, though. It's just like the T-Mobile version of the Nexus One (or any other TMo phone, for that matter).

    That sucks. So ATT still has crap android phones. Phil do you think they will make a ATT capable version of the nexus s?

    Wait, on http://www.google.com/nexus/#!/tech-specs this page it mentions the 850 band under quad band gsm.

    Yes the phone is quad band so you will be able to use it on AT&t for phone calls but no 3G speed for data

    actually there was a AT&T version of the Nexus One. So I guess what you're saying is true. AT&T will never get a good android phone, they got a GREAT android phone.

    The question is, though, will the Nexus S ever make it over to AT&T for their 3G network? That's what I'm wondering.

    I think the problem is that this would be a direct competitor with the LG Quantum, and since AT&T just rolled out that phone, it'll be a minute before they get it.

    I'd personally like to give this phone a go, but until it gets HSDPA on AT&T, I'm not especially interested.

    The Nexus S is not any better than the Captivate. So I would say the Captivate is a pretty damn good ATT Android phone.

    The nexus one came out with an ATT 3g version 3 months after initial release. So perhaps the same will happen with the nexus s.

    No front facing camera. And it has touchwiz. So the Captivate is not even close to the Nexus S.

    Yeah same hardware, but that's it.

    I am dying for a AT&T version so I can use it in Canada on Telus. At least the current model would get 2G/EDGE on Rogers. Unfortunately Telus has no 2G. I just Google wouldn;t go around posting tweets that the Nexus S will work on any GSM network, since that is untrue.

    A best buy rep told a friend of mine it will work on attnt 3g bands. I know better and I told him it wouldn't. My guess is the rep lied to get the sell.

    I have a day one EVO and after their first software update, my battery lasts just as long as my Pre's battery did. Not sure what you're running, but you may want to see what apps you have running behind the scenes. Things like Yahoo messenger suck the battery dry with however they're doing polling.

    I like the Nexus S form factor, but not enough "next gen" for me to move off my EVO. Not to mention no T-Mobile service where I am. If it did work on AT&T full speed, I might consider it.

    Posted this in another forum, but after owning two iPhones (3G and 4), I'm used to crappy battery life. I think it shouldn't come as a surprise honestly, these phones do way more then our old nokia's. I'm usually close to some form of power, so it really won't be a issue for me. I appreciate the heads up though.
