New Android Flagship Nexus S Comes Out Of Hiding

The Google Nexus S is out today. It was previewed incognito by Google CEO Eric Schmidt at Web 2.0 a few weeks ago. A Samsung Galaxy S-based handset running Android 2.3, it’s the new Android Flagship phone and reputedly best Android device out there — according to early reviews.

We’ll get our proverbial mitts on one tomorrow at the Chrome event. I’m excited to see how it compares to my Android EVO, a veritable tank of a phone.

The specs are very solid from what I can tell and, as mentioned, it’s the first phone to offer the new version of Android. But the noteworthy thing is probably the inclusion of near-field communications technology, which would enable mobile payments with a tap or a bump. All Android phones updating to version 2.3 should get the same capabilities.

We’ll provide our thoughts and impressions once we can test the phone. For now you can read  much more on Techmeme.

And now the missing theme music for the launch of this new Android flagship device:
