Hungry for even more Nexus S goodness? Looks like you're in luck, for Engadget has just received an entire barrage of photos and other information about Google's next developer device.
Those pictures you're seeing may have been shot about a month ago, but Engadget just posted them now, and they're still perfectly relevant to the Gingerbread-running device.
Perhaps more interestingly, a little digging around on Flickr and Picasa also revealed that the Nexus S will pack a five-megapixel camera and will be known as the Samsung GT-i9020 in the model number world. What's more, the GT-i9020 was recently approved by the FCC as well as the WiFi Alliance, the latter of which confirmed that the device will ship with an 802.11 b/g/n single-band WiFi radio. Read More
What a barrage of Nexus S news today! First, a brief appearance at Best Buy, then an actual picture of the new Nexus on BestBuy.com, confirming it will run Gingerbread, and now we have a supposed snap of the Best Buy internal Live Mock memo, showing, among other things, the Nexus S getting a dedicated endcap on the November 14th planogram. It doesn't look like it is going to be a live mock just yet, which means it will either contain a dummy unit or various Nexus S promotional material and information.
Let me break this down a bit:
- an endcap is the area at the end of a store aisle dedicated to displaying highlighted and featured products
- a live mock, from what I understand, is a real demo version of the device, as opposed to a dummy unit
- a planogram is essentially a store product location diagram
The picture was taken by @anrblog, who claims he persuaded a Best Buy employee to allow him a quick glance at their system. Read More
The most widely rumored upcoming Android device without any physical evidence of its existence is, without a doubt, the Samsung Nexus 2 (which also goes by the name Nexus S) - even its picture presented above is fake.
Ever since the first time it was mentioned by Androidandme and shortly backed up by RadioAndroid, the whole Androidosphere has been abuzz with the next Google managed device for one simple reason: the Nexus One was and still remains the most open Android device on the market. Considering Google killed the crowd favorite earlier this year, any mention of a potential successor was capable of arousing geekdroids across the world even more than Gingerbread itself. Read More
