Nexus S Now Available In White, With AT&T-Compatible 3G Bands

When we heard that Google was planning to release a Nexus S for the Canadian market, we took note that the hardware would allow you to use it on AT&T’s 3G network in the States. In addition to the original’s T-Mobile support, and the upcoming 4G version on Sprint, the flagship Gingerbread phone would soon have even more choices for wireless service. Rumor is, that Nexus S should be coming to Canada on April 14, but you may be able to get your hands on one early, as e-tailer Negri Electronics has started sales on the Nexus S i9020T, sporting both the new 3G bands as well as a white color option.

With its quad-band GSM and support for 3G on 850/1900/2100MHz, it’s likely this model is indeed of the same type headed for Canada, but this is the first time we’ve seen it with this white backing. We heard about the possibilities for a white Nexus S back in January, but the design was slightly different, with the white not reaching all the way around the phone’s sides. If white’s not your thing, the phone is also available with these frequencies in standard black. The unlocked handset is being sold for around $600, so you’ll pay a premium over an unlocked Nexus S with the 1700MHz band.

Other than the color and the radio, this Nexus S looks unchanged from the existing hardware. Do you think the white works for this phone, or did it look more elegant in the original black?
