Google and Samsung introduces the Gingerbread powered Nexus S

Google has unveiled the Samsung Nexus S, the successor the the HTC Nexus one and the newest and best phone in the wide variety of android phones available today. The Nexus is also the first device that will ship with the latest version of the Android operating system which will move up to version 2.3 and is code named “gingerbread”.

Google is expanding the Nexus brand and I am hoping this trend of refreshing the Android OS with a new phone and update yearly will continue.  Google is also touted the Nexus S saying it delivers what they call a “pure Google” experience: unlocked, unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates. More images, some specs and a video after the jump.

Impressive specs:

  • 4.0″ WVGA (480×800) contour display
  • 1GHz Hummingbird processor
  • Front and rear facing cameras
  • 16GB of internal memory
  • NFC hardware support
