Android Version 2.3
Get the ultimate Google experience at 3G speeds which pairs Android 2.3 Gingerbread with a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor and integrated Google Voice capabilities. A thin-profile contour display gives the Nexus S a unique slim and trim size that fits easily in the palm of your hand, and its brighter, high-contrast screen means colors are incredibly vibrant and text is crisp at any size--even when viewed in bright sunlight.
The Nexus S 3G is packed with the latest technologies (view larger).
The 4-inch Super AMOLED screen with Curved Display (view larger).
The Nexus S is packed with the latest mobile technologies, including a Super AMOLED Contour Display with curved glass screen, 1 GHz Hummingbird processor, and Wireless-N Wi-Fi networking plus 3G Mobile Hotspot capability for sharing your 3G connection with up to six Wi-Fi enabled devices simultaneously. And with support for Near Field Communications (NFC), the Nexus S can read information from "smart" tags, or everyday objects that have NFC chips in them--from stickers and movie posters to t-shirts.
The phone is outfitted with a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera plus a front-facing camera for easy video chats on the go. Other features include assisted GPS (A-GPS) for navigation and location-based services, Bluetooth for hands-free devices and stereo music streaming, haptic feedback vibration, access to both personal and corporate e-mail, and up to 6 hours of talk time. And with the Nexus S, you'll always be the first to receive software upgrades and new Google mobile apps as soon as they become available.
Google Voice Integration
With Google Voice, your phone number is more than just 10 digits--it's the main hub of your voice communications. You get one number that rings all your phones--up to six different phones--with intelligent call routing and advanced features like call screening, blocking, and recording. You also get transcribed voicemail that's sent to you via email and/or text message, low-priced international calling, custom voicemail greeting capabilities, and more.
Android, 2.3 (Gingerbread) Platform
The Nexus S 3G runs the Android 2.3 platform (dubbed "Gingerbread")--the fastest version of Android available for smartphones yet. It features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation. Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming email and then switch back to the game without losing your place.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
With Voice Actions for Android, you can press and hold the Search button from anywhere and speak almost anything--text messages and emails, navigation direction queries, opening web pages, and more. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
The Nexus S 3G also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day, including Google Search, Gmail, Google Maps with Navigation, Google Calendar, Picasa, and YouTube. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.
An NFC Reader application lets your read and interact with near-field communication (NFC) tags. For example, you can "touch" or "swipe" an NFC tag that might be embedded in a poster, sticker, or advertisement, then act on the data read from the tag. A typical use would be to read a tag at a restaurant, store, or event and then rate or register by jumping to a web site whose URL is included in the tag data.
The Nexus S weighs 4.6 ounces and measures 4.87 x 2.48 x 0.44 inches. Its 1500 mAh lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 6 hours of talk time.

PLEASE NOTE: unlocked phones still have different models
I9020T - T-mobile, any GSM network, 3G might not work (AT&T customers will have "edge" only data connection)
I9020A - AT&T, any GSM network, 3G might not work (T-mobile customers buy I9020T, otherwise "edge" only for data)
people on Verizon, Sprint etc. - you have your own models, please check with your carrier before buying any unlocked devices.
ATTENTION: Amazon sells I9020T (08/08/2011), and as AT&T customer, I have to return it, because no 3G. some reviewers mentioned that Amazon sells right model for AT&T - so, you know now, it's not the case (at least it wasn't for me).
There were times I wanted to punch this chap (maybe I did more than couple of times), but he still endured with me while I was enduring medical school. And he did his duty just like any other honorable service men. We had good memories, bad memories and although this guy can't remember many of them because of his small and demented brain (can't take anymore), I will never forget them. Now after all those years, I want to say many thanks to "Samsung Google Nexus S Smartphone with US 3G, 5MP Camera, Android OS, Touch Screen - No Warranty - Black" and that he will be remembered as my "first ever smartphone". Goodbye old friend, you will be missed and you will be in a better place, the good hands of my mom.
But some comments on the phone: it's got a great hi-definition screen, a 5 MP camera, a 1 GHz processor, and the latest 2.x version of Android for smartphones. Samsung does a great job of putting a number of nice touches together, and the integrated product is well refined. A pleasure to use, actually.
My complaint about the phone is the price: it's over $300, but it's only 3G. Since a seven to eight inch tablet with WiFi and Skype can be used to make phone calls, perhaps consider buying a tablet for the computer functions and a cheap phone for cell talking.
Three stars because even though this is a great phone with a lot of features, it is on the expensive side IMHO.
My service is Corr Wireless and this phone allows me to send and receive pictures straight from/to the phone without going to the Corr Wireless website. It's the first phone out of 6 I've owned that does that. Mind = Blown.
The packaging was great. The actual box for the phone, with a picture of it and logos, etc. was in mint condition.
Been a little behind in phones due to using them to strictly texting. But finally wanted something that made texting epic win from my RAZR, a full keyboard, etc. I loved the idea of Google sending the updates straight to the device rather than going through the carrier. ^5
First Android device I've used. I've setup and worked with iPod Touches before, but I caught on fast. Very easy to use, I instinctively zoomed in on a web page then wondered how I knew that.
Another thing that caught me by surprise was how it recognized my lesser known carrier so fast and was working with it from the start. I didn't initially realize that and after exporting my contacts from my SIM fumbled around trying to call my voice mail (I'm deaf) when a friend told me he received a text 30 minutes ago from me. He was busy and so his reply came late. It dawned on me then that it already detected and was working with my carrier from the very beginning.
I sent the message right after I exported my contacts. Before I spent 20 minutes trying to guess what button did which for voice mail. I then called his phone and boom. Yep. I was a little embarrassed it was working perfectly and I expected some hiccups.
Now it's hard to imagine my life without a smartphone, especially this one. GPS <3 makes life a lot easier because it connects to a GPS satellite rather than through your carrier to the web. And displays a icon that moves with you as you drive along on streets, etc. I love it. I'm still discovering more and more about the phone as I go along, tweaking it more and more specifically for me.
The AMOLED screen is beautiful. And the flash on the back of the camera is wow. Bright. In a good way because it really makes the picture your taking seem clearer and less darker when taking something in a low lit area. In a way it reminds me of the flash in a professional photo studio.
The Android 2.3 OS seem pretty fast, sleak, and nice. It's my first smart phone though, but one reason I delayed getting one was because I knew they were not as powerful as say a netbook. I'm a electronics tech, so I'd rather do things quicker on a laptop/netbook than I could on a phone. But this phone actually surprised me in terms of speed and functionality.
Only Con so far has been... the amount of memory made available for Apps. You get roughly 16gb as general storage (like a internal SD card) for music, photos, etc. But Apps get about 1GB. Not counting the content you get (say Kindle Books) in the App (I believe that's stored in the 16gb area). You might be able to add some of this storage GB to the App 1GB storage, I haven't looked into it. I haven't used up either memory yet either in any case.
tl;dr version. GPS = win and oh, yeah. I love it. I'm pretty thrilled with it.
