We reported late last month that the Nexus S 4G smartphone would be landing on May 8, which was yesterday. The smartphone is cool and supports speedy 4G connectivity with the WiMax Sprint network. The phone is nice looking too with smooth, rounded edges and a glossy black sheen to it. For me the most notable design feature of the smartphone is the slight curve to the device and the contour display follows that curve.
The screen is a 4-inch Super AMOLED and the phone packs in all the latest technology. It has NFC technology inside so it will be ready for the future mobile payments and other cool NFC uses. The phone supports 802.11 b/g/n, Bluetooth, A-GPS and has a USB 2.0 port. The smartphone runs Android 2.3.3 Gingerbread and the OS has no custom tweaks so updates to Android will be easy to apply with no wait, as some smartphones have to endure when they are heavily customized.
The Nexus S 4G is on the Sprint network for $200. If you want to save yourself some green though you can hop over to Best Buy and pick it up with a $50 discount. Either way you will need to sign a new 2-year contract with Sprint to get the phone. Rounding out the features after a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front VGA resolution camera, 5MP rear camera, and 16GB of internal memory.
