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.

  • Redesigned keyboard with multi-touch support

who cares AT&T band? AT&T is completely useless anyway.

Unlike AT&T that gets drop calls every 5-10 minutes. T-mobile and its 3G has been working for me since day one. This is from NYC.

I just got a Nokia N8 (switching from Nexus One - Xperia X10 - N8), N8 has an excellent camera thats why I made the switch. Biggest reason I drop Nexus One was because of HTC's garbage support. This one is made by Samsung, so I might switch back.

Unfortunately T-Mobile doesn't have any significant presence within almost a 50 mile radius around the city where I live. I can't even make an account with my home address, only service they have here is with their extended roaming partners. So currently for unlocked GSM phones AT&T is my only option.

I will be sticking with my, AT&T frequency, Nexus One, giving them the middle finger all the while using my free Wi-Fi tethering. Thank you Google.
