Samsung Nexus S with Android 2.3 Gingerbread officially announced

Google has introduced the latest version of the Android platform, Gingerbread, and unveil the next Android phone from the Nexus line of mobile products—Nexus S. And for developers, the Gingerbread SDK/NDK is now available as well. Samsung Nexus S is the lead device for the Gingerbread/Android 2.3 release; it’s the first Android device to ship with the Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) OS.

Samsung Nexus S specifications include a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read information from NFC tags. The mobile phone is the first smartphone to feature a 4-inch Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face.

Android 2.3 Gingerbread is the fastest version of Android yet, and it delivers a number of improvements, such as user interface refinements, NFC support, a new keyboard and text selection tool, Internet (VoIP/SIP) calling, improved copy/paste functionality and gyroscope sensor support. Google will be open-sourcing Gingerbread in the coming weeks.

You can find more Nexus S videos and information at or follow @GoogleNexus on Twitter for the latest updates. After December 16, Nexus S can be purchased (unlocked or with a T-Mobile service plan) online and in-store from all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores in the U.S. and after December 20 at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy retailers in the U.K.
