NFC-Laden Nexus S 4G to Get Some Action

Did you know that the Nexus S (both in its original form and its newer 4G state on Sprint) is fully ready to work with NFC mobile payments? Google knows, they built it. Sprint knows, they're apparently working on a deal with Google right this second to release a mobile payments service on the 26th of May, 2011. This service will, if it's real, be available for US customers of Sprint Nextel, so says "three people familiar with the matter" to Bloomberg. Three's better than one, right?

Nexus S 4G Review

Well what do you know? It's a Sprint Nexus S for your vanilla enjoyment. We got a brief, very brief, and I mean BRIEF look at this device back at CTIA 2011 down in Orlando and found that the only big difference between it and the original to be the weight and the look under the battery cover. Remember the Spy Shot Epic? There's also no slot for a SIM card - no need now that it's not on T-Mobile, right? Right? Right. Sprint's showing off what it says are 4G speeds here, will it stand up to the test? And what other secrets does this newest iteration of Google's Gingerbread flagship hold?

Samsung Nexus S 4G clears FCC

Spring has sprung and a ton of smartphones have made their way through FCC testing, including the Samsung Nexus S 4G. Listed as model SPH-D720, the Nexus S 4G has been cleared for WiMax channels, pointing towards a Sprint release. Sprint has already hinted of a Spring release, but other that that, mums the word. Originally, we reported that Best Buy was going to launch it April 6th. But as of this writing, that hadn't happened, probably waiting to clear the FCC before launching a full court press. There's plenty of time left in Spring, however, so no need to panic yet.

Nexus S Smartphone aims at AT&T?

HTC Thunderbolt display comparison: looks are deceiving

Users of the new HTC Thunderbolt may be quite happy with the phone's touchscreen display ... so long as they don't show it next to the Google Nexus S or the Atrix 4G. Comparing the Thunderbolt's TFT display with the Google Nexus S Super AMOLED display or even the Atrix 4g qHD display, it really shows just how muted and washed out the images from the TBolt really look. But according to the review by Vince over at SlashGear, it's still a pretty impressive display. Users just shouldn't succumb to display envy.

Sprint EVO View, Nexus, and EVO 3D [CLUES]

We're sitting here with our notepads out, our magnets and our divining rods, OUIJA boards and dirt-mall-psychics, all of it together to put together the pieces on what Sprint might be bringing us during the utterly gigantic 2 and a half hour time slot they've got us slated for at CTIA in a couple weeks. Incase you do not know, 2.5hours for an event such as this is a long time, long enough to announce several new products - new Android products. We had our eyelids open this afternoon when Engadget was tipped anonymously on several new phones including an EVO View, Nexus S 4G, and EVO 3D - now we've got some extra clues that might just thread the needle.

Generosity Doth Not Go Unappreciated

You may have noticed that over the past few days, we've been sort of XOOM happy here on Android Community. We've posted everything from a [brand new unboxing and hands-on post] to a [smooth guide] on some of the new amazing games you'll be able to run with your super powerful Tegra 2 processor (inside the tablet, of course.) This is because we've got a Motorola XOOM Android 3.0 Honeycomb tablet sitting here right in front of us. The flood will continue here, but you'll soon be seeing the same thing happening around the web. Why? Because this year's Game Developers Conference has been gifted with not only Nexus S phones, not only Google Chrome OS-powered CR-48 laptops, but brand new XOOM tablets as well!
