The CES 2011 and the CES 2010 saw the launch of many products. One of the major players and smartphone debutants was definitely the Android-based Google Nexus One. Google and their Android open source project teams have definitely done wonders. After the Google Nexus One, Google introduced the Nexus S. The Nexus series of phones are now heading towards the Honeycomb OS. As we all know, Android open source project was launched by the collaboration of various industry leaders, technology leaders, product manufacturers and service providers. The Android OS and its applications are now available for many smart phones, tablets, gaming devices, TVs and other products.
Samsung of South Korea, one of the players taking the lead in Android-based smartphones and tablets, has definitely made a mark for themselves in this technology scenario. Google launched the Nexus One, which was manufactured by HTC. The Nexus One chapter was closed with Google introducing the Nexus S on the Gingerbread OS – Android 2.3. While Google introduced the Gingerbread OS on the Nexus S with a wide range of features added over the Froyo OS, Google is yet to release updates to the Nexus One users worldwide. Samsung Galaxy S did wonders, capturing a large part of the market of Android-based smartphones.
While Google has been slowly upgrading the Nexus One with the Gingerbread OS, Google is taking Samsung head-on by introducing the Nexus S in South Korea. One would have expected Google after their success in the US markets, to move to Canada, Europe and other developed areas, but Google is introducing the Nexus S in Italy and South Korea. Google will be launching the Nexus S through SK Telecom who, by the way are already the carriers for Samsung Galaxy S. It is heard that SKT is in the final stages of testing the Google Nexus S on their network.
The Nexus S sports a 4-inch super AMOLED capacitive touch screen, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16 GB on board memory, Wi-Fi connectivity, HSPA, 5 mega-pixel camera, a micro SB memory card slot as also a wide range of Android sensors. The Nexus S also comes with a front facing VGA camera for video chat, Bluetooth 2.1 plus EDR and A-GPS. The 1500 mAh lithium Ion battery and 3G are features to look out. The curved super AMOLED display is again one of the firsts worldwide, besides the graphics co-processor.
