Rich -

Since the Nexus S, is similar to the T-Mobile Vibrant, would there be a chance that the Nexus S has Quad-band 3G support, like the T-Mobile Vibrant has via a software unlock?

The T-Mobile vibrant is a Quad-band 3G device, but the 850/1900 3G bands are software locked.

Also, is what you mentioned about phones not allowing their full 3G speeds related to the G2? Many places T-Mobile has claimed to have super fast HSPA+ speeds, but when we do speed tests with the Nexus One, G2, Vibrant, etc. I am not seeing speeds near 7.2 for the HSPA devices. I even did a speed test in NYC on the G2, and it would not go past 2Mbps. It's rare that I find a tower that gives me past 2Mbps on my Nexus One.
