Nexus One Bound for Sprint, AT&T in Addition to T-Mobile, Verizon?
It looks like the Google Nexus One may soon be one of those ubiquitous devices–like the Windows Mobile HTC Touch Pro2–with cross-carrier availability on all four of the nation’s largest wireless carriers. Google had announced that when the first iteration that launched on T-Mobile USA’s AWS 3G wireless network, that there would be a CDMA/EVDO version for Verizon Wireless shortly to come. It seems, that AT&T may want to join the party, as a Nexus One version that is compatible with Ma Bell’s 3G network has been spotted at the FCC. Finally, there’s Sprint, the nation’s third largest carrier, which operates on a similar CDMA/EVDO network like Verizon Wireless. A recent customer inquiry to Sprint about the Nexus One reveals the following:

Whatever Sprint means “as of now” is uncertain, but optimistic editors at Gizmodo seem to interpret that as there may be Android life from Google on Sprint’s network in the future.
