Samsung Galaxy Nexus for AT&T passes through the FCC

While we would love to say that we know AT&T is getting ready to launch the Galaxy Nexus from Samsung, we really can’t. Sure, it’s great news that the FCC has allowed the device to pass through its gauntlet, it doesn’t necessarily mean that AT&T is getting ready to launch it. In fact, we know that Verizon has an exclusive on the Galaxy Nexus here in the States, but we don’t know how long it lasts.

But, here we are. We’re looking at the image that came along with the Samsung Galaxy Nexus featuring AT&T bands. The device is featuring AT&T’s HSPA+ wireless band, for those of you that are interested. It could very well mean that AT&T does indeed have plans to launch the Galaxy Nexus with a contract sometime in the near future, and for those of you who don’t want to join Verizon’s ranks to get their hands on one, we imagine you must have your fingers crossed pretty hard right now, hoping and praying.

The big question: why wouldn’t AT&T aim for their own 4G LTE version? That’s an easy one, if this version of the device isn’t actually meant for AT&T, but will be heading to Canada instead. We already know the device is heading up there soon, so that’s probably the point of this FCC filing — at least for right now.
