Nexus S possibly headed to AT&T?

No official announcement has been made, but Google’s Nexus S might be headed to AT&T. A new Bluetooth SIG product listing detail reveals a Samsung phone with the model number GT-i9020A. This is significant because the T-Mobile version of the Nexus S had the model number GT-i9020T. If the letter T designated a T-Mobile version of the phone, then the letter A could stand for AT&T.

Canadian blog Mobile Syrup recently posted an interview with the Mobilicity CEO who said his company was getting the Nexus S along with Bell, Rogers, and Telus. All those carriers operate their 3G networks on the 850 / 1900MHz WCDMA bands, which happen to be the same as AT&T. It then makes sense that this new GT-i9020A might be the model number of the Nexus S headed to these carriers.

Evan Blass of PocketNow points out there was about a two month lag between the T-Mobile and AT&T versions of the Nexus One. AT&T did not officially support the Nexus One or offer any subsidy, but anything is possible now that AT&T seems to be focusing more on Android.

AT&T already has some more compelling handsets on the way, like the Atrix 4G, but if you are a fan of stock Android then you can’t go wrong with the Nexus S (that is after Google fixes the random reboot bug).
