Nexus S is the first phone to run Gingerbread, the fastest version of Android yet.
Gingerbread builds on some of the most popular Android features like multi-tasking and Wi-Fi hotspot and adds a refreshed user interface, an improved keyboard, near field communication (NFC) support, and more.
Refined look and feel
There’s a slick black notification bar that’s easier to read and an improved on-screen keyboard with multi-touch support that makes typing faster and more accurate.
Internet calling (VoIP/ SIP support)
Gingerbread allows Nexus S to place Internet calls with a SIP account. This allows for enhanced VoIP dialing to other SIP accounts and even phone numbers.
One-touch word selection and improved copy-paste
With Gingerbread, copying and pasting text is easier than ever. Use the new text selection tool to copy and paste when entering text or viewing a webpage.
Portable Wi-Fi hotspot
Nexus S can function as a Wi-Fi hotspot for up to six portable devices such as laptops or tablets. Once connected, these devices will have access to the Internet.
Fast just got faster
Menus open faster, tabs are more responsive, and web pages load quicker with virtually no lag time. Switch between apps effortlessly with true multitasking on Android.
Nexus S has a dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU). Playing mobile games, browsing the web, and watching videos are fast, fluid, and smooth. It's like having a pocket-sized multimedia and game console.
Brilliant 4” Contour Display
Nexus S is manufactured by Samsung, and it is the first smartphone to launch with a Contour Super Amoled Display. The curved glass screen fits comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face.
A brighter screen with higher contrast means colors are incredibly vibrant, text is crisp at any size, and luminance is up to 1.5x higher than conventional LCD displays.
Take Nexus S outside, there's 75% less glare than on other smartphone displays. Your videos, pictures and games look their best and the sun won't wash them out.
Lighter and thinner profile
The Contour Display uses a thin-profile glass panel, making Nexus S uniquely slim and trim. It's subtle but you'll notice.
Near Field Communication (NFC)
Nexus S can read information from "smart" tags, or everyday objects that have NFC chips in them. These can be anything from stickers and movie posters to t-shirts.
Rear and front-facing cameras
The rear-facing 5 megapixel camera is capable of taking stunning pictures and videos that you can share with friends and family. The front-facing camera can take VGA quality images and video.
Latest Google Mobile apps
Nexus S comes pre-installed with the best of Google apps, including Google Search, Google Maps with Navigation (Beta), Mobile Instant, Voice Actions, Gmail, Google Earth and more. With Nexus S, be the first to receive upgrades, features and new apps as they become available.
Nexus S provides access to over 100,000 apps, games, and widgets on Android Market.
Never get lost again
Explore the world in 3D from the palm of your hand using Google Maps 5.0 with Navigation (Beta), Places, and Latitude.
Zoom, tilt, and rotate the map with two fingers to explore cities in 3D. Orient yourself with compass mode, which automatically rotates the map to the direction you’re facing. Keep viewing the maps you use the most, even if you lose your connection.
Find local spots like restaurants and ATMs using Places. Then, use Navigation for free turn-by-turn GPS voice guidance with offline rerouting.
Speak, don’t poke
Nexus S listens to you. With Voice Actions, press and hold the Search button from anywhere and speak almost anything.
Entertainment on the go
More people are watching videos on the go, and using the latest YouTube app for Android means having millions of videos right in your pocket.
YouTube for Android has been redesigned to include a personalized home screen feed, in-page playback, and a rotate-for-fullscreen gesture. Nexus S' blazing speed makes it easy to browse, play, and upload photos.
