Nexus Two To Be First Native Android 2.3 Device
 
 

Cupcake fans unite

The Nexus One was the very first phone to get the upgrade to Android 2.2, so it makes sense that the Nexus Two will also be a flagship phone for a new Android operating system. If new reports are to be believed, it'll be the first to have Android 2.3, AKA Gingerbread, pre-installed.

The device, which was designed and manufactured by Samsung instead of HTC in collaboration with Google (like the Nexus One), will be officially unveiled November 8 at a pumped-up media event in Times Square. I4U will be on hand at the event to provide all the full details once they become official.

But for now, we're getting word that Android fans should be happy to hear. By incorporating Android 2.3, that would mean the new OS is complete and ready for deployment. Updates to existing Android phones should hopefully not be too far behind, even though most of us have just recently gotten the update to 2.2.

Other early details about the Nexus Two suggest it will have a 4-inch AMOLED or Super AMOLED display, a 1.2 GHz processor, 5 MP external camera and 1.3 MP front-facing camera, as well as 16 GB of internal storage and 512 MB of RAM.

It'll pack a powerful punch to the Android market, as those specs are more powerful than we've seen on any existing Android phone to date.

The Nexus One was well received in reviews among mobile enthusiasts, but due its lack of brick-and-mortar retail availability, and a very underwhelming marketing campaign, sales were abysmal. By placing Samsung, one of the most prolific Android supporters, at the helm of the Nexus Two project, it stands a much better shot at success.


Carriers for the phone haven't been officially detailed yet, but it's likely it will have the same carrier partner as the Nexus One - T-Mobile. Rumors suggest it might also be made available for AT&T.

Again, the Nexus Two will be officially christened at an exclusive, balls-out New York City spectacle, and we'll be there to get all the juicy details. Stay tuned.
