Some specs of the Samsung Nexus S are confirmed, no HSPA+?
Credible rumours about the Samsung Nexus S are flooding the net at alarming rates. We don't know about you, but the more we read about this beauty, the more desperate we become to hold it in our palms. Just to remind you how the whole picture shaped in the last few days – first, the Nexus S was sighted on Best Buy and a few moments after that, alleged pictures of the device were shown for the very first time. Then, only a few hours ago, we told you that a tweet from Eldar Murtazin – a source of always unconfirmed, but very often reliable information – said that he has been playing with the handset and it has a dual-core processor. And now an internal Best Buy document shows some of the specs of the Samsung Nexus S.

This internal document confirms that the Nexus S will be heading to T-Mobile and its radio bands are EDGE/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 and UMTS 900/1700/2100. Interesting enough, HSPA+ is lacking, but it's confirmed that the device will have 1500 mAh battery and a 5MP camera. Sadly, some fundamental specifications – like processor speed, internal storage and what version of Android it will run – are not mentioned, but we hope this is going to happen sooner rather than later.

T-Mobile subscribers (and virtually everyone else) surely have high hopes for the Samsung Nexus S, so that it's slightly disappointing that HSPA+ is missing. Still, all these leaks hint that it won't take too long to know more about this much-anticipated handset. But until then, tell us how big of a blow it's for T-Mobile that the Samsung Nexus S doesn't support HSPA+?

thats not the nexusS, thats placeholder crap from the galaxy S. The nexus S has been pushed back to add a dual core hummingbird chipset as well as its got an 8mpx camera on there. It will be HSPA+ as well. you cant scream "2011 flagship" before 2011 is even here with out being on top of your game

@Tycoon Androidpolice fail. Eric Schmidt showed off an unannounced device that does appear to be the Nexus S. If you look at the engadget article, they do acknowledge that the render probably isn't real.
