Google Nexus S or Samsung Nexus S will be in India very soon. The price of this phone is Rs. 24000 which looks a very competitive price and probably push quite a few phones out of the picture. Nexus S is launched in the US few weeks earlier. To get it so soon to India does say something about Indian market. And this time for a change, courtesy is not Flipkart but Infibeam. Two things I am happy about in this story. India is getting launches like never before and Infibeam has upped the ante with Flipkart. This is going to be fun.
As for the phone, it is a phone from Google which was jointly developed with Samsung. By far it is the best Android phone in the market. Google will send out the future updates immediately and a host other benefits.
Nexus S comes with a 4 inch WVGA capacitive Super AMOLED touch screen with 480×800 pixel screen resolution. 1GHz Cortex A8 (Hummingbird) processor, 512 MB RAM and 16 GB flash memory should satisfy any power user. Nexus S is loaded with a 5 megapixel camera and a front-facing VGA camera.
Gingerbread (Android 2.3) is on-board for Nexus S, which brings near field communications to facilitate cash less payments with vendors among other things. This could probably be the first Android 2.3 phone in India. Yes it is a 3G phone with Bluetooth, WiFi and USB connectivity.
I want to go on with the specs but Google does it best. There’s nothing here which isn’t already said elsewhere. Let me tell you that, if true, this phone is a steal for Rs. 24000. Downside of this is, you will repent your iPhone purchase even if it is two years ago. I promise.
