Google introduced the latest version of the Android platform, Gingerbread, and unveil the next Android device from the Nexus line of mobile products — Nexus S.
And for developers, the Gingerbread SDK/NDK is now available as well.
“Nexus S is the lead device for the Gingerbread/Android 2.3 release, co-developed with Samsung. Nexus S feature a 4” Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. It also features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read info from NFC tags. NFC is a fast, versatile short-range wireless technology that can be embedded in all kinds of everyday objects like movie posters, stickers and t-shirts. Nexus S delivers what we call a “pure Google” experience: unlocked, unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and update,” stated Google.
Gingerbread is the fastest version of Android yet, and it delivers a number of improvements, such as user interface refinements, NFC support, a new keyboard and text selection tool, Internet (VoIP/SIP) calling, improved copy/paste functionality and gyroscope sensor support.
After Dec’ 16, Nexus S can be purchased (unlocked or with a T-Mobile service plan) online and in-store from all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores in the U.S. and after Dec’20 at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy retailers in the U.K.
