An HTC handset with FCC ID NM8PB99100 and the model name “NEXUSONE” has made its way though the revealing process of FCC approval. The documents posted by the FCC divulge the presence of cellular radios supporting quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE and UMTS/HSUPA (2Mbps up and 7.2Mbps down) on 850/1700/1900 frequencies.

It will be available for free to users that sign up for a 40GBP Combi or Flext plan, both of which will offer unlimited browsing and some combination of minutes and text messages.
No word yet on whether the device will be offered in the same color schemes as the U.S. model or not.
Update: The press release, below, states that the G1 will be available in black and white only, [...]
