It is a perfect, working version of the Nexus S, which Best Buy began selling earlier this month. It has 16 GB of storage, a functional gyroscope, and is the first phone to carry the newest Android operating system.
Unfortunately, if you want one, you'll have to settle for the normal sized version, for $200. The huge Nexus S is for display purposes only. But you're free to play around with it if you want.
It's about the same size as those huge iPhones you might have seen on display outside an Apple Store location, but those don't actually work.
It doesn't quite meet the world record for the world's largestcell phone. That one was a promotional project from Samsung for a device that was more than four and a half feet tall and was a scaled version of its SCH-r450 phone. But that's not a smartphone.
So, if you're in the San Carlos area, stop on by and see a piece of history.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
