The Google Nexus S, like the
original Nexus One, isn't intended to awe the tech community with late-breaking
technology and huge leaps in, well, anything. Instead, it's intended to
represent the best possible experience for the Android at this given
moment in time. It's not weighed down by the often heavy interfaces that HTC,
Motorola, and Samsung like to use on their Android devices, and so what you're
left with is a light of Android backed by some pretty compelling hardware.
If the Nexus S is anything like the Nexus One, we have a winner on our hands. Not only was the Nexus One a fast device with terrific battery life and a crisp
screen, but it won the support of the development community, paving the way for
a plethora of custom ROMs and tweaks available for the device, even one year
after its release. And, with promised updates by Google on a regular basis, the
Nexus series of devices won't become obsolete, even when successive devices are
released. Read on for our full review of the Nexus S!
