Video: Introducing Nexus S

Nexus S. Gingerbread. Those are the words of the day today, as Google unleashes a host of major announcements in a coordinated holiday attack.

The Nexus S was developed in cooperation by Google and Samsung to deliver the best Android experience out there, and includes trendsetting features such as near field communications and curved glass. Other specs, like the 1GHz Hummingbird processor are not so forward-thinking, but that Cortex A8 will get the job done for some time. See a full list of specs below the video, both of which come from Google’s Nexus S product page.

What say you, DroidDog reader? Are you happy with the bullet points? Will you be rushing over to T-Mobile to grab one of these puppies as soon as they’re available, or are you waiting for a dual-core monster?
