The Google Nexus S is the first phone to sport the latest version of Google's Android mobile phone operating system. Codenamed Gingerbread and with the release number of 2.3, it packs in a whole host of little and large tweaks including an improved interface, support for Near Field Communication (NFC), better battery management, and improved text editing and typing. As for the phone, it's not a massive breakthrough in terms of hardware and is in many ways just a tweaked Samsung Galaxy S. However, it is very competent and combined with the software, it makes for one of the most desirable handsets currently available. You can pick one up for £429.95 SIM free from carphonewarehouse or it can be had for free on £35pm, 24 month contracts on a variety of networks.
