Description

Google Nexus S is the follow-up of the Google Nexus One. It is not a great leap forward in the same way that the original Nexus was but rather is more like a refreshed version of the Samsung Galaxy S. It runs Google's new version of Android OS which is called Gingerbread and it is powered by 1GHz processor. Other features include a 4-inch Super AMOLED unique Contour Display, which is slightly curved, 5MP camera, Near Field Communication (NFC), Wi-Fi and more.


The phone is offered unlocked or with T-Mobile USA and AT&T service plans through Best Buy only, and not directly by T-Mobile or AT&T.
