We've seen leaked information on Google's latest smartphone for the past month or so, but Google today made the Nexus S official. The Nexus S is made by Samsung and will be the flagship for Google's new Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" smartphone OS.

The Nexus S is a GSM phone that also comes packed with 802.11n, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, Near Field Communication (NFC) and A-GPS. The screen is a gorgeous 4.0" (480x800) Super AMOLED, and a front-facing VGA camera sits right above the screen. On the back, the Nexus S features a 5MP camera with auto focus and LED flash (it also support H.264 720p video).

The Nexus S packs a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and 16GB of internal storage. The phone measures 63mm x 123.9mm x 10.88mm and weighs 4.51 ounces.

The Nexus S will be available for purchase starting December 16 online or at Best Buy stores.

Integrated SIP stack

It'll be interesting to see how well the integrated SIP stack works. A free SIP account (freephoneline.ca) + Android 2.3 phone + $35, 5Gb data-only plan would be good way to get most of the smartphone experience for less money.

The carriers of course will put up roadblocks at every opportunity... at least in Canada anyway.
