New photos of Google's Nexus S and Android 2.3 Gingerbread have leaked, this time over at xda-developers. The shots are pretty blurry and heavily cropped, but there's also a list of tentative specifications including 720p HD video capture and a 4-inch screen that they suggest might be Super AMOLED 2.

Samsung Nexus S Poses for Photo Again, Shows Off Curves

By now, the Nexus S is a device that plenty of people out there are eagerly anticipating getting their hands on. So how about another leaked image to stare at for awhile? This one, which was picked up in the same public photo sharing service that the Nexus S originally leaked from, is a three-quarter view, and it does a good job of showing us the gentle, and obvious, curves of the device.

Nexus S concave touchscreen originally intended for Sprint?

The Samsung-made Google Nexus S will feature a new, curved touchscreen the technology behind which the company has been apparently shopping around for twelve months, according to a trusted Engadget tipster. The source claims that the laterally concave display is a result of Samsung's research tipping that such a shape improves "perceived usability over a perfectly flat display." Apparently, Samsung has been showing the technology since around CES 2010 in January this year, but while Sprint was keen to bring the displays to market in time for the holidays, the manufacturer wasn't able to produce sufficient product volume in time.

Eric Schmidt Nexus S video now online

Eric Schmidt bringing along the Samsung Nexus S to Web 2.0 was only a semi-surprise, but it's still the first official outing for the Android handset. If you want to relive the moment, O'Reilly Media has thrown the footage up on their YouTube event page. It's actually the full 45 minute sit-down with Schmidt, and is worth a watch if you're curious about the Google CEO's attitudes to mobile and open-source. Alternatively, the Nexus S shows up in the first few minutes of the clip. [youtube AKOWK2dR4Dg] [Thanks Paul!]

Gingerbread Confirmed Today, working on Nexus S, as Presented by Google CEO Eric Schmidt at Web 2.0

So if you were watching a live stream of (or were AT) the Web 2.0 Conference 2010 listening to Google CEO Eric Schmidt, you saw him whip out not only the new legendary super secret phone, but Android 2.3 Gingerbread as well. Amongst the new features included in the Gingerbread update are support for NFC enhanced device interaction and RFID tags. Buying things with your phone, attempting (without saying it,) to get to that point before Apple fully arrives. Schmidt noted that this technology (using NFC and RFID to pay for everything) will eventually replace the credit card. Gingerbread, Schmidt says, will be rolling out in the next few weeks.

Eric Schmidt Demos Nexus S Running Gingerbread

Google CEO Eric Schmidt was on stage at the Web 2.0 Summit and then all of the sudden he pulled out one of the most talked about phones of the last few weeks: The Nexus S. He didn't go into much detail, he even left out which manufacturer is making the Nexus S, even though it's very obvious.

Gingerbread Laden Phone with Huge Display to be Samsung “Flagship” for Early 2011 [UPDATES: Pic 2, Name?]

So our pals over at Engadget have been given a "1st Half Flagship" deck image here with some rather interesting news on it. It appears to be a giant phone with "ultra sleek design", running Android (2.3) Gingerbread, and toting either a 4.3" or 4.5" WVGA sAMOLED2 screen. The guesses appear to be that the little s before AMOLED2 might mean SUPER, and it's unclear as to why two different screen sizes are listed on the same page. The phone boasts 1080p playback and recording, it's a "Universal e-book Reader," and it's got a massively awesome 8 Megapixel photo camera with LED flash.
