The Google Nexus S Phone is now officially on its way to the consumers and there’s plenty of features to like in this Phone. Google has added their own bells and whistles to the phone, and this is the first Android Phone to come with the new Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS.
The rumors on the launch of Android 2.3 Gingerbread — claimed as one of the fastest version of Android thus far — are true. Check out the video on Youtube of this elusive Smart Phone from Google.
Features of Nexus S Phone
The curved shape, bright 4-inch contour display screen is the first thing you’ll notice in the Nexus S phone. The device is sure to fit in users’ hand more comfortably and with 1GHz Samsung Hummingbird processor – Nexus S performance is sure to fly high.
The device has 16GB of storage space, front-facing camera and rear-facing 5MP camera with flash capabilities. To make calls, you can use the voice feature that uses the VoIP technology. Although this feature is only for the US customers, but it should be reaching the customers’ worldwide pretty soon.
To make payments from your Phone, Google Nexus S has Near-field communications support as well. It appears that Google has done quite a lot — and learned a few lessons from the Nexus one — on the Nexus S phone.
Price of Nexus S Phone
With the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread OS installed, Nexus S costs $199 — with a two-year T-Mobile agreement. Otherwise, the unlocked Nexus S phone (with no contract) is priced at $529. For now, buying the Google Nexus S is possible via Best Buy in the US. The UK users can also pre-order via Carphone Warehouse.
Whether the new Google Samsung Nexus S can catch up with the rest of the Android phones and Apple iPhone (of course), remains to be seen. And with the Nexus online store discontinued, it’ll be interesting to see how Google will join hands with the retail partners for the launch.
