Nexus- multiple versions?

I'm just re-entering the market to look at (modern) devices, and am interested in the S2 and the Nexus (I've read all the comparisons online, no need to start a debate in this thread).

I was thinking about buying the device outright, rather than as part of a 2-year contract. I'm stuck with AT&T due to coverage issues.

When I look on Newegg at the Nexus, they are all listed as 3G instead of 4G. I know that it depends on what your service provider has in the area, but since I don't track the smartphone market, I was worried about whether those were older versions or something, especially since the Nexus I'm looking at is cheaper than the S2, which seems odd since I think the Nexus is newer (?)

Thanks for any clarification

It's not just the provider, you need the 4G hardware to run at that speed. If the phone only works on 3G, you will not get 4G on it.
