Samsung Nexus S packing Android 2.3 set to satisfy your Gingerbread cravings
Eric Schmidt may have showed it off back in November at the Web 2.0 Summit, but the Google Nexus S is now official, along with Android 2.3. The Gingerbread-toting device has just been announced on the Google Blog, and will be available exclusively through Carphone Warehouse in time for Christmas.
It’s also the first with a curved screen, designed to fit your face better for clearer calls, and the 4-inch super AMOLED display is one and a half times brighter than traditional LCDs, reflecting four times less sunlight. It’s similar to the one found on Samsung’s Galaxy S.
Inside you get 16GB of memory, a 1GHz processor, HTML5 for seamless browsing, near field communications (NFC) for transmitting data by touching the phone on other enabled devices or objects like posters. It also has a 5-megpiaxel camera.
The Google Nexus S is available for pre-order now from www.carphonewarehouse.com . It’s free on a £35 a month contract, or £549.95 SIM-free.
