Google unveils the Samsung Nexus S running Android 2.3

Mon, Dec 6, 2010


Google today unveiled the Samsung Nexus S, the first Android device running Android 2.3 a.k.a Gingerbread.

Spec wise, the device comes with a 4″ WVGA screen, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, NFC support, 16GB of internal storage, 512MB of RAM, a gyroscope and VoIP support. Camera wise, it comes with a 5MP camera on the back and a VGA camera mounted on the front.

The Nexus S will hit stores on December 16th, and TechCrunch already has a hands-on with the device.

The bottom line is this. If you are an iPhone user this isn’t going to make you switch. If you’re an Android user you will want this phone more than any other. If you’re currently neither, we recommend that you go with the Nexus S. It is better than the iPhone in most ways. What you lose with the slightly less impressive screen and iOS’s slightly slicker user experience you will more than make up for with the Nexus S’s ability to actually make phone calls that don’t drop and Google’s exceptional Navigation and voice input applications.
