All Android fanboys may want for Christmas is a Google Nexus S. I was initially devastated when I heard some talks about Google not making anymore new phones but when I saw the announcements and “leaks” about this phone from Samsung I was hopeful that I might be able to buy a super phone from Google just yet.
I wonder if it also comes with free engraving on the back.
So what is this phone all about? Apart from this cool new sleek design from Samsung (which I might even say is better than the Galaxy S’ somewhat rigid design, aside from the curves on the corners) what does this baby hold in it?
Here are just a couple of highlights of the specs you might wanna know about the Google Nexus S:
- Processor- Hummingbird, 1Ghz Cortex A8
- 16GB iNAND Flash Memory
- Quad Band GSM
- HSDPA (7.2Mbps) HSUPA (5.76Mbps)
- Wi-Fi 802.11 n/b/g
- Assisted GPS (A-GPS)
- 4.0″ WVGA (480×800)
- Contour Display with curved glass screen
- Super AMOLED
- Capacitive touch sensor
- Anti-fingerprint display coating (I’ll need this one)
- Light sensor
- camera Back-facing: 5 megapixels (2560×1920)
- 720 x 480 video resolution
- H.264, H.263 MPEG4 video recording
- Auto focus
- Front-facing: VGA (640×480)
- IT RUNS ON GOOGLE ANDROID 2.3 A.K.A GINGERBREAD
Being on Gingerbread is probably one of the features that I like about this phone. (I know I know, you can also have Gingerbread on other phones.)
But knowing Google will not settle for anything less this phone can surely pack up a good range of specs.
Now how long can you use this phone? This is the proposed battery life:
- Talk time up to 6.7 hours on 3G
(14 hours on 2G)
- Standby time up to 17.8 days on 3G
(29.7 days on 2G)
- 1500 mAH Lithum Ion
Google seems to have made the right choice with having Samsung create their second Google phone. Samsung back then made the most powerful android phone in the market. I wonder if this phone can even match the previous power phone from Samsung.
Recently this phone is now priced at: £429.99 from £429.99 from £549.95. This is about 667$ so try to check it out in Best Buy.
For those who are new to android, don’t worry, if Google will release a Google Android OS higher than the current one, let’s say Honeycomb OS then you can most likely update the OS of this phone.
