Google's new Smartphone Nexus S launched with Gingerbread


Google has launched its new flagship Android phone the "Nexus S" made by South Korea's Samsung. The new phone is the first device to run Android 2.3, codenamed "Gingerbread".

The Nexus S will be made available in the U.S. from December 16 from Best Buy stores and from December 20 at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy retailers in Britain, said Google Vice President of Engineering Andy Rubin. He further added that Nexus S delivers unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates.

The new phone is a slab-style, 1-GHz smartphone like Samsung's popular Galaxy S line. It has 5-megapixel rear-facing and VGA front-facing cameras, 16 gigabytes of internal memory and HD video playback and 720-by-480 video capture. It works on both T-Mobile's 3G network and AT&T's 2G EDGE network.

The Nexus S spotlights key features in Google's Gingerbread OS, including support for near-field communications (NFC), built-in voice-over-IP calling, faster speed, better power management, more sensors and front-facing cameras. NFC chips store personal data that can be transmitted to readers.

Nexus S will cost $529 unlocked, or $199 with a two-year T-Mobile contract.
