Google Nexus S and Android 2.3 "Gingerbread" Now Official, Hitting the US On the 16th

Labels: , , , , , , ,

As expected, Google has made Gingerbread along with the Nexus S official today. Everyone has been waiting a long time for this so this is definitely great news. Version 2.3 "Gingerbread" is official and brings a few new changes over the other versions of Android. If you want a list of new features then just check out Android Developer.

Anyways, let's move onto the Nexus S. It features a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED Contour display, 512MB of RAM, WiFi / Bluetooth support, aGPS, a 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 CPU, 16GB of internal storage, a 5MP AF camera with 720p HD video recording and a flash, a 3.5mm headphone jack, NFC, a front-facing VGA camera, and ships with Android 2.3 "Gingerbread". Clearly, it's missing two key points. It does not have a dual-core CPU and doesn't even sport a microSD card slot. If you're really into NFC right now then I guess it's worth it. I hope there's another Nexus device in early 2011 (unlikely though).

This smartphone will be available unlocked in the US starting on December 16th exclusively through Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile and in the UK exclusively through Carphone Warehouse starting on December 20th. It'll be available for $529 USD unlocked. Check it out on Google's own website here.

Update: You'll also be able to get it for $199.99 on a 2-year T-Mobile USA contract.
