A new version of the Google Nexus One phone will soon arrive for use on AT&T's 3G network, according to a CNET News report.

Currently, the phone only works on T-Mobile in the U.S. but customers can already buy an unlocked version of it for $529 to use it on AT&T's network - but only on AT&T's 2.5G  or EDGE networks.

The information doesn't come from AT&T but rather from documents filed with the Federal Communications Commission and posted by CNET. When Google launched the Nexus One last month, it said the device would be available for Verizon Wireless and Sprint this Spring.

The report notes that the new version will "operate in the 3G wireless bands for WCDMA Bands I, II and V, which are used by AT&T and Canadian wireless providers Rogers, Bell Canada and Telus Mobility."

The report said the device will likely work through most of Europe, too.
