There have been lot of talks and leaks about the Google new Android venture both the Android 2.3 Gingerbread and the Nesus S. After the success of the Galaxy S or maybe the awesome hardware Samsung put up in their phones like the Super Amoled Display that takes the Apple’s Retina Display Head on or the highly Capable 1GHz humming bird Processor and the icing on the cake (in this case Gingerbread), but whatever they saw they were really impressed with the South Korean Manufacturer and decided to go with Samsung as the Mother of their new and advanced Baby they Call the ‘Nexus S’.
Here’s the rundown: 4-inch WVGA display, triband HSPA with AWS support (no HSPA+, seemingly), 5 megapixel camera, NFC, 16GB of onboard storage, 512MB of RAM, available on T-Mobile. It’s also got a gyroscope — as do the existing Galaxy S phones — along with something being called the “contour display” (covered Display) .
According to the Official Google Blog, the Nexus S will be available for purchase after December 16th “online and in-store from all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores,” either unlocked or with a T-Mobile plan. Across the pond, look for the Nexus S to hit December 20th at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy UK.
Google has learned from their mistakes, though HTC makes great phones and one the best UIs but they were not able to handle the Nexus One sales and the after sales services also Samsung is the second largest Cell phone Manufacturer in the World, so what does that mean? Samsung has the experience of handling large scale releases, they can manage world wide releases for e.g. the Galaxy S phone and the Galaxy Tab all managed the to reach India within a month it’s first official release in the US.
The very first Android phone hit the market in November 2008. Just over two years later, Android’s vision of openness has spurred the development of more than 100 different Android devices. Today, more than 200,000 Android devices are activated daily worldwide. The volume and variety of Android devices continues to surpass our wildest expectations—but we’re not slowing down.
Today, we’re pleased to introduce the latest version of the Android platform, Gingerbread, and unveil the next Android device from the Nexus line of mobile products—Nexus S. And for developers, the Gingerbread SDK/NDK is now available as well.
Nexus S is the lead device for the Gingerbread/Android 2.3 release; it’s the first Android device to ship with the new version of the Android platform. We co-developed this product with Samsung—ensuring tight integration of hardware and software to highlight the latest advancements of the Android platform. As part of the Nexus brand, Nexus S delivers what we call a “pure Google” experience: unlocked, unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates.
Take a look at our backstory video for more on the vision behind this product and to understand why we think “a thousand heads are better than one”:
Nexus S is the first smartphone to feature a 4” Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. It also features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read information from NFC tags. NFC is a fast, versatile short-range wireless technology that can be embedded in all kinds of everyday objects like movie posters, stickers and t-shirts.
Gingerbread is the fastest version of Android yet, and it delivers a number of improvements, such as user interface refinements, NFC support, a new keyboard and text selection tool, Internet (VoIP/SIP) calling, improved copy/paste functionality and gyroscope sensor support.
