Google Nexus S Officially Unveiled, Runs Gingerbread

First rumored as Nexus Two almost two months ago, Google officially unveiled its next model on the Nexus line of mobile phones – the Nexus S.
Powered by Android 2.3 or Gingerbread, the Nexus S is the first device to bring the Gingerbread experience to the Android community.

The Nexus S

Nexus S is the lead device for the Gingerbread/Android 2.3 release; it’s the first Android device to ship with the new version of the Android platform. We co-developed this product with Samsung—ensuring tight integration of hardware and software to highlight the latest advancements of the Android platform. As part of the Nexus brand, Nexus S delivers what we call a “pure Google” experience: unlocked, unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates.
