After months of rumors, dismissals, leaks and even a brief public appearance, Google and Samsung have finally confirmed the Nexus S, the first smartphone to run Google's new Android 2.3 Gingerbread platform. The Samsung-built smartphone comes less than 12 months after Google's Nexus One failed to win over consumers.


In addition to running Android 2.3, the Nexus S is equipped with Near Field Communications, which will allow the device to read smart objects. The GSM Nexus S also boasts a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen, front- and rear-facing cameras, packs a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, 16 GB of internal storage, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, 802.11n and A-GPS, DailyTech reports.


The Nexus S will be available for purchase Thursday, Dec. 16 in the U.S. The handset will be available online and in Best Buy stores. It will cost customers $529 to buy the Nexus S unlocked or $199 with a two-year contract from T-Mobile, according to VentureBeat. The phone will be available in the UK beginning Dec. 20.
