No day without new Nexus One news and today it's the Global Certification Forum which followed the FCC by certifying the Nexus One Android smartphone which is indeed manufactured by HTC. The Nexus One (or HTC Bravo/HTC Passion) is confirmed to feature quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA/HSUPA at 900/1700/2100 MHz (UTRA FDDVIII/FDDIV/FDDI). And it's indeed quite interesting that the so called Gphone, which is said to be directly distributed by Google - without any carrier relations, is only supporting T-Mobile US' UMTS band while AT&T's UMTS bands aren't supported at all but instead Europe's and Asia's UMTS bands are supported:

At the moment, a Nexus One launch by Google is rumored for early 2010 while a European HTC Bravo launch is expected for April 2010.
