For Canadians, two versions of the unlocked device are currently being offered. Both versions support four GSM radio frequencies (850/900/1800/1900), but the supported 3G/UMTS bands will differ depending on the version selected.

Both versions support the respective 3G networks, and WiFi. The Rogers compatible version will also deliver 2G/EDGE speeds on the Rogers networks.

For $529 U.S., Canadians will receive the Nexus One phone of their choice, a phone case, wall charger and USB Cable. Rogers and Wind Mobile customers will supply the SIM card.

When ordering, Rogers customers will need to select the Nexus One device which supports 3G coverage on networks that use the 850 MHz, 1900 MHz, and 2100 MHz frequency bands while Wind Mobile will select the device which supports 3G coverage on networks that use the 900 MHz, AWS, and 2100 MHz frequency bands.

Digital Home recommends that Canadians interested in ordering a Nexus One should visit the Google Nexus One Help Center prior to purchasing in order to fully understand which Nexus One device is right for them and its limitations in this country.
