The Nexus S Reviewed, Found to be a Significant Improvement

Are you keen to show you're "serious about having a presence in the mobile phone market?" If so, then according to, the new Nexus S, the smartphone offering from Google, is for you. The device which is also being referred to as Nexus 2, is "fast, fluid and sporting the latest technology from the new Android (News - Alert) 2.3 gingerbread operating system," the company says, adding that "the screen is a bright, crisp and clear 4" amoled screen which ensures up to one and a half times more luminance than LCD displays traditionally found on many smartphones."

The device also has new touchscreen sensors, making the multitouch keyboard experience much better than its predecessor, according to officials of, as well as anti-fingerprint display coating, a 1GHz Hummingbird processor for multitasking, web browsing and gaming experience via a dedicated graphics processor.

The dedicated Graphics Processing Unit (GPU) makes playing video games, viewing images and watching videos a "much better flow and richer experience," company officials say, adding that the internal 16GB memory has enough capacity to store "all but the most demanding uses for music, photos, videos and games. There is no expansion card slot for a memory card."

The Nexus S also comes with future technology advances including the latest NFC wireless payment technology, and the site's review notes: "The technology allows you to read information from smart tags or objects that have NFC chips."

About a month ago TMC's (News - Alert) Anuradha Shukla wrote that CompanionLink Software, a provider of mobile sync for Google (News - Alert) Android devices, announced two-way sync with Nexus S. CompanionLink now synchronizes contacts, calendar, tasks and notes between the Nexus S and PC software such as Microsoft Outlook, Outlook Business Contact Manager, Sage ACT!, IBM (News - Alert) Lotus Notes, Novell GroupWise, and Palm Desktop.
