Earlier today, the new Google phone, the Nexus S, was launched. It seems as though many people were surprised that it was announced in only a simple blog post. Many, including me, thought the phone would be announced on December 7th when Google releases its first operating system, ChromeOS. Never the less, the phone is here and will be available for purchase at your local BestBuy store for $529 or $199 with a new T-Mobile two-year contract.
The phone itself will have a 4 inch Super AMOLED touch screen. With a 800×400 screen resolution. This itself is a difference as that many of today’s smartphones have only a 3.5 inch screen. But anyways, the phone will also include a 5 megapixel camera with an LED flash. There will also be a 3.5mm headphone jack for all of your music listening needs.
As for inside the phone, the Nexus S will run on Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) on a 1GHz processor making this the first phone to have/run on Android 2.3. Besides this, the Nexus S will come with 16GB of flash memory and will come installed with Adobe Flash. The phone, like other smartphones, will have Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS on it as well as all of the apps your heart could possibly desire.
Overall the Nexus S looks to be a good phone. I think that people were expecting a lot more but none the less, it looks pretty good.

Rumor has it that there will only be about 65,000 units with ChromsOS installed on them as it is only in beta stage. This meaning that there unfortunatly will not be any devices ready for holiday shopping. It seems as though this will be a great operating system. One spokesperson said that ChromeOS could potentially replace 60% of Windows PCs in the workplace.
But anyways, besides ChromeOS, Google is also coming out with their newest version of Android. It is likely that Gingerbread will be included in this Android update and this will mean that there will most likely be a launch of the Samsung Nexus S.
And finally, Google will also be launching their first social network. No one is too sure on what it will be called although some rumors are that it will be either GoogeME, or Google+1. Will this be a successful social network? Who knows, but I can’t wait to find out!
