Nexus S Makes Another Appearance In The Wild

We last saw a glimpse of the Android-powered Nexus S at the Web 2.0 Summit in the hands of the one and only, Google CEO Eric Schmidt.  The latest images come from EXIF data from a Google employee’s Picasa photostream tagged as the GT-i9020 (aka Nexus S).  The images reveal the Nexus S screen to be curved in an unusual way. This thing is out in the wild so it would be safe to say that we can expect a bunch of leaks in the coming days.  Hit the jump for another image of the handset alongside a MacBook Pro. Leave your thoughts in the comments!

          People are effing stupid thats why. They just try to find a way to b*tch at Samsung for anything especially ever since the Behold 2. Oh.. where’s my updates oh no update? samsung sucksssss and then they start to make up loads of excuses. Aside from 2.1 android what isn’t great about the vibrant? Its definitely one of the lightest devices I have ever held and a huge powerhouse device.

          I tried the Vibrant for 5 days. I loved its size and the screen. But that baby was overheating. I could feel the heat through the gel cover! and the battery didn’t last. For those who complain about the Vibrant’s weight, you could buy a bigger battery. I also discovered that I need either a trackball or an optic pad. So, I returned the Vibrant and still have my G1 running Android 2.1 with an extended life battery. I’m waiting to see if this Nexus S will be worth buying. It had better have a longer-life battery than the Vibrant!

          They keep making more powerful phones and the batteries they ship them with don’t last but 5 to 6 hours, maybe less! I refuse to carry around my neck a battery charger everywhere I go! this is ridiculous!

    My thought is the GPS better work, and they need a metal body for it.

    Need to see more!!! Enough with these blurry glimpses from afar at different angles. I hope your right about more leaks in the foreseeable future.

  • Jimmcparty

    Looks like an old-school MyTouch3G. Samsung TV screens, YAY. Samsung phones, BOOOO. And yes, I owned a Vibrant. It was dookie except for the screen.

    I’m wondering if I should ditch my MyTouch 4G for this??? I don’t really use the video chat, but I love the feel of the the MyTouch 4G. The Vibrant though, that was my favorite phone of them all..just didn’t have a solid feel. I’m hoping this phone has some weight to it…I really like the screens from Samsung lately…we shall see.

      Definitely trade it in for the Nexus S, it will be a much better phone with super fast updates!

    bring it on

  • Matlock

    I would definitely ditch my G2 for this thing. I’m a former Nexus One owner, who sadly had to sell it in order to get two G2s, one for me and one for the GF! I will definitely be picking this phone up once it launches! Cant wait, EEEEkK!!!

    • Joshua

      You wouldn’t be “sad” if you had gone with the MyTouch 4g. I will always remember my Nexus One but I did replace it with a phone that blows it out of the water.

  • 4G OR NOT TO 4G

    Attention…Attention…AT&T and Blackberry has teamed up to evolve the smartphone…HAHAHA…I kill me:)

    I’m going to be coming to Tmobile. I’m wondering whether to get the G2 or wait and see what this “Nexus S” is all about. I am an HTC find and love the look/feel of the nexus one but the G2 seems similiar. I dont like the look of the mytouch 4g in certain ways..(2 branded for tmobile)..any suggestions??

    • Pwnmenship

      If you like HTC I think you’ll love the G2. The G2 feels like a closer successor than this Nexus S. The S looks like it’ll have that Samsung cheap plastic feel too it like the Epic, if you can get over it that’s cool I suppose but the G2 is just all around sexy. Its got a metal trim which adds some really nice weight to it ( leave it sitting out and it’ll be cool to the touch). Its recently been rooted so you can even overclock it’s cpu upwards of 1.8ghz (though I stay at 1.47ghz myself) and the keyboard feels great.

        Thanks!

      Remember, the G2 has no front facing camera, and has that waste of space and weight with the QWERTY keyboard (YUCK)! I am intrigued by the Nexus S, but absolutely loving the Mytouch 4G right now, I love my N1 and none of the phones I have played with so far have convinced me to jump ship quite yet!

      I’d go with the Nexus. It’s hardware kills the G2 and if it’s really the Nexus with stock android, you’ll get the OS updates first. It may not seem like a big deal until you get a phone (say the Samsung Vibrant I got in July) that comes out after the latest version of Android and it’s the last of November and there’s still no official word on when you’ll get the latest version while a newer version is on the way. Also, there are some serious advantages to the hardware and Froyo. I know a lot of people complain about the plastic and say that Froyo has nothing that Eclair doesn’t and Gingerbread won’t be that big a deal but that’s just rationalization to make their minds think they have the latest and greatest.

      The Vibrant was my 5th Android phone and the biggest improvement was the fact that it has 16GB of internal memory. This may seem insignificant, but when I’m around my friends who have droids, Evos, Heros, or other Android phones they see how many apps I have installed and tell me I should remove some and I say why? I have 2GB of space just for apps, when the average android phone has about 512MB total. Once you fill that up your phone gets really really slow and unresponsive.

      Once you have that memory, you’ll want Froyo’s “automatic updates” feature so you don’t have 50-60 updates available like I do at times. Then it makes a phone more responsive and adds flash along with other improvements.
