Are you going to buy the Google Nexus S?
December 16, 2010 is quite a big day for all Android lovers in the US, because this is the launch date of the long-awaited Google Nexus S. You are, of course, very informed about this handset thanks to our Nexus S round-up, our coverage on its introduction and all the rumours we reported to you before it was officially unveiled. According to some of our readers, however, the handset didn't live up to their expectations and that's why comments of disappointment were expressed, since the Nexus S doesn't offer something yet unseen (for example, a dual-core processor), but rather it packs all the goodies that we know and love with the Samsung Galaxy S along with some new perks like the Contour Display and an NFC chip. Nevertheless, since one of the most anticipated phones of the year is now here, we feel the time is right to ask you...

I might wait and see another phone with 2.3 since Droid's will probably get updated and there are some promises with other phones I might hold my wallet for a bit, even if its pure android... i just hope companies realize adding custom UI's only causes delays in updates (most rumored models I've seen with 2.3 seem to be running a stock 2.3 UI) so i hope ill be seeing some stock experience on other devices

oh yeah, it's right next to the, “No, because I spend $30 per month flushing my shit down the toilet, I’m not gonna spend $199-529 on another turd.” button. thanks for pointing that out tool.

IMO this just doesn't stand out enough. LG just launched a new phone with a dual core processer, motorola is set to launch the olympus in the next month or two, why spend the money on something that's just a little better than a galaxy S?

In fact, the specs are pretty much the same if not some worse than the galaxy S (except the NFC hardware)!!

Nope. The plastic materials make it look cheap, although I'm sure its screen is beautiful.

Clearly the only reason to buy the Nexus S is to be the first with Android updates...

Its definitely not because it has the latest and greatest HW....

Don't waste your $$

how about, it has less capability than other phones?? It may be attractive to a new user or upgrading from a very basic phone, but if you have a SD card with 16Gb of media and pics already, this phone does NOT have a card slot!!!

...how about, got it, and this is the slickest, smoothest, absolute best Android phone I've ever owned! IMO, I thought the same way as everyone else before taking a chance with this device. I like it!
