When we think of the Google Nexus S, we think of similar features shared by the HTC Desire HD, the Samsung Galaxy X, and the LG Optimus. The things that these phones have in common are their touch screen features, hardware, software, and their Android operating systems. However, the Nexus takes Android to a whole new level.

The nexus runs on another version of Android, Gingerbread. This is the fastest version of an Android mobile platform to hit the mobile arena. It focuses on Android's key features such as Wi-Fi, multitasking, an improved keyboard, NFC support, and so much more. In addition, it brings to the picture a refreshed user interface.

With the phone, you will enjoy a refined look and feel. One of these enhancements is a black notification bar. This will make it easier to read notifications. Another improvement is a virtual keyboard with multi-touch support. This will make typing faster and more accurate.

The operating system also allows improved copy paste options and one touch word selection. This will make it easier for you to copy and paste for web page browsing and text entering purposes. This simply means that phone makes it easier to browse and select text.

Voice over internet protocol or simply VOIP offered people the ability to converse with anyone in any part of the globe at much lower costs. However, this was only enjoyed through computers and internet access. With the Google Nexus S, you get full internet calling support. This simply means that you get to call loved ones, friends, and colleagues at much affordable rates.

Did you know that you can use the phone as a portable Wi-Fi hotspot? As much as 6 devices can connect to the internet through the Google Nexus S. From laptops to tablet PCs, the phone will allow these devices to access the World Wide Web.

No matter how cutting edge the operating system of the Google Nexus S may be, all of this will mean nothing if the phone does not come with a powerful processor. This is exactly what the phone comes with. It comes with a 1 GHz Hummingbird processor. This means that it is well capable of running apps with the most demanding system requirements. The phone will never leave you hanging.

When it comes to hardware, the phone is up to par with the processors all the top of the line phones come with. When it comes to its mobile platform, there is no other phone that runs on Gingerbread. With Gingerbread, the Google Nexus S offers the best Android has to offer.
