UPDATE: Best Buy has confirmed the Nexus S will sell for $529 at full retail price or $199 with 2-year contract on T-Mobile.
PREVIOUS: Samsung just announced the Nexus S and Google’s official site is now live. No price point has been revealed, but the Nexus S will on sale in the U.S. on December 16th at Best Buy and December 20 at Carphone Warehouse stores in the UK.
The Nexus S will be sold unlocked and should work on any GSM carrier. However, it appears that the U.S. model only supports the 3G bands for T-Mobile (Tri-band HSPA: 900, 2100, 1700).
Unfortunately, the Nexus S that got announced is the single-core version and not the rumored dual-core model that was in testing. Essentially, the Nexus S is quite similar to the Galaxy S with the addition of Android 2.3, near-field communications (NFC) support, and a front-facing camera.
Is this the superphone you have been waiting for? Or does a dual-core handset next month sound a little more tempting?
