Google CEO Gives a Glimpse of ‘Nexus S’, Takes No Names, Mentions Gingerbread Too

Written By Sam on 17 November 2010

It seems like Google CEO, Eric Schmidt, might have annoyed Samsung a little by revealing the device at the Web 2.0 Summit. For, if rumors are to be believed, Samsung is busy fixing some manufacturing issues and is not prepared to unveil the device just yet. It was expected that the Android 2.3 Gingerbread would be center stage at the event; but Eric Schmidt did show off the phone as well, albeit with the logo carefully taped! And he also took care not to mention the name of the device he was showing though many present feel it was the Samsung (Google) Nexus S.

T-Mobile will again partner with Google in launching the device. But then again since no names were taken, there were no details divulged about the specification or features of the phone either.

Schmidt also mentioned that the Gingerbread would be released in the following few weeks and this pretty much means that the Nexus S will also be officially launched or revealed sometime soon too. No demos of the Gingerbread were given, but the CEO said that it would bring with it the NFC technology.

We may recall, there was a rumor a few days ago that the Nexus S was to be launched with Google’s Gingerbread on November 11, which eventually did not follow through. There were some leaks on the Best Buy website, which had been pulled down too. It is believed that Samsung decided to post pone the launch of the Nexus S due to some manufacturing issues in the phone and now the device will come with a dual core processor instead of the usual single core 1.2GHz Hummingbird processor. But again, the fact that Gingerbread will be coming soon also gives us hope that so will the Nexus S.
