Google announced the Nexus S with Gingerbread officially. Nexus S is the lead device for the Gingerbread/Android 2.3 release and it’s the first Android device to ship with the new version of the Android platform. Google co-developed the Nexus S with Samsung. Rumors about the Nexus S have been flying around since quite a while.

The Nexus S is the first smartphone to feature a 4-inch Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. It also features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read information from NFC tags.

NFC is a fast, versatile short-range wireless technology that can be embedded in all kinds of everyday objects like movie posters, stickers and t-shirts.

Gingerbread is the fastest version of Android yet, and it delivers a number of improvements, such as user interface refinements, NFC support, a new keyboard and text selection tool, Internet (VoIP/SIP) calling, improved copy/paste functionality and gyroscope sensor support.

After Dec. 16, Nexus S can be purchased (unlocked or with a T-Mobile service plan) online and in-store from all Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores in the U.S. and after Dec. 20 at Carphone Warehouse and Best Buy retailers in the U.K.

Below you can watch a preview of the Nexus S Android 2.3 phone.
