Google Presents the Nexus S Handset Built by Samsung


This week the number one search engine Google has presented its new smartphone called the Nexus S, which was developed by Samsung.

It is worth mentioning that Nexus S comes about a year after Google launched its very popular model Nexus One manufactured by Taiwan's HTC.

The latest handset runs Google's new version of Android operating system called "Gingerbread." The smartphone will be available for US users starting this December.

"Nexus S delivers what we call a 'pure Google' experience: unlocked, unfiltered access to the best Google mobile services and the latest and greatest Android releases and updates," said the company's vice president of engineering Andy Rubin.

The Nexus S boasts a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, two cameras and 16GB of internal memory, reports Physorg. In addition, the device features near field communication (NFC) hardware, which transforms the handset into a virtual wallet, making it possible for users to "tap and pay" for financial transactions.

Last month, the company's chief executive Eric Schmidt mentioned that the tap-and-pay mobile technology could serve as an alternative for credit cards.
