Overview of Google Nexus S
This product is no longer available. As an alternative please see the Samsung Galaxy Nexus.
The Google Nexus S from Samsung is an official Google handset which benefits from a vanilla version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) being supplied. This means that you can experience the Android operating system without additional manufacturer software. How Google imagined the operating system would look and feel.
The Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) operating system builds on some of the most popular features including multi-tasking and Wi-Fi hotspot and adds a refreshed user interface, improved on-screen keyboard, near field communication (NFC) support and more.
A brilliant 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED Contour display is a feature of the Google Nexus S. Its curved glass screen fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face, while making calls. The display is also brighter with higher contrast resulting in colours which are incredibly vibrant, with text being crisp at any size.
The luminance of the display is up to 1.5 times higher than conventional LCD displays. This ensures that there is 75% less glare than other smartphone displays. While contour display uses a thin-profile glass panel, making Nexus S uniquely slim and trim.
