The New Google Nexus S

The Nexus S is Google's latest mobile. It is the first to run Google's new OS, Android 2.3 Gingerbread. Featuring the gorgeous Contour display with curved glass screen, this phone has a 4.0" WVGA (480x800), Super AMOLED touch screen with anti-fingerprint coating.


The Nexus S is powered by a 1GHz Cortex A8 (Hummingbird) processor with 16GB iNAND flash memory to take all your pictures and videos taken via the 5 megapixels (2560x1920) camera or the front facing one VGA (640x480). The back facing takes videos with 720 x 480 video resolution and
H.264, H.263 MPEG4 video recording.

They have packed in loads of stuff in the phone including a Three-axis gyroscope, Accelerometer, Digital compass, Proximity sensor and Light sensor.

However, what I was really concerned about was the battery life. Well, according to Google, the phone has a Talk time up to 6.7 hours on 3G (14 hours on 2G) and a Standby time up to 17.8 days on 3G (29.7 days on 2G). That's quite amazing if it's true.

Check out the full specs here.

No such luck. I would love to get my hands on it but I am still on a contract and a sim free one is out of my budget. I noticed that it is £549.95 (pre-order) at the Carphone warehouse.

I've heard that there are great things afoot for the Nexus S and its successors - namely the scan feature which could extend to scanning in for flights, in the supermarket etc. Apparently there's a lot of room for development to take it in this direction so it'll be VERY interesting to see how it develops within the next few years.
