Google Nexus S with Gingerbread Announced

The Fastest Android Phone Yet?

Or so they say, it seems Google has placed a lot focus on speed, gaming development, multimedia and communication enhancements on the newly announced Google Nexus S.

The new Android 2.3 Gingerbread phone, a collaboration with Samsung, has a pretty sleek and glossy overall look to it and we spotted an anti-fingerprint display coating spec on the super AMOLED screen(we all hate that oil and smudge, don’t you?). Looking from the side, the Nexus S is slightly curved even on its screen which makes us wonder if its purely for ergonomics or perhaps better display as claimed but it’s definitely quite a feat to pull off.

Android OS fans and game developers will be happy to know there are some interesting new features and refinements, the most important perhaps the speed. The Google Nexus S video looks ridiculously fast when browsing through and opening applications, definitely a deciding factor when choosing phones. We haven’t got our hands on one yet so we can’t tell for sure but the specs of the Samsung 1GHz Hummingbird processor on the Nexus S crunches more graphics than any other phones out there while maintaining low power consumption.

For those interested in the Android Gingerbread OS details, do check out their official features highlights page.

The first Google Nexus was quite a flop, and the Google Nexus S is looking pretty interesting in our opinion. What do you think, has Google turned the tables and created a winner this time round?
