Can we assume that no major carrier has an exclusive on this new Nexus One since Google can sell it unlocked?

If no exclusive, why not launch the device for all 4 major carriers? I know they all want to test the phone first, however it's ready to go for T-Mobile of all carriers and Verizon very soon,
so what about ATT and Sprint?

ATT loses their exclusive on the iPhone early this year so you'd think they'd be looking for alternatives anyway. Not that I care, I just left ATT and took my family with me as we were so tired of network problems and expensive bills.

I wouldn't be suprised if sprint got the nexus one.. all they would need to do is let the ESN work on their network and Google could sell an "unlocked" cdma/global? version
