samsung-galaxys2-02

In the case of the Galaxy S II, the specs have pretty much been bumped up across the board. This starts with the positively gorgeous 4.3-inch Super AMOLED Plus display. All of the original Galaxy S phones had the standard 4.0-inch screen. I don't need to tell you that this screen is easily the most amazing one you've ever seen on a smartphone.

All it takes is a tipping point. The iPhone represented a tipping point for touchscreen smartphones for regular consumers. The iPad represented a tipping point for the popularity of tablets. And perhaps the Nintendo 3DS (despite being bad for kids) represents the tipping point for glasses-free stereoscopic 3D.

No carrier branding, no custom skins. The Nexus S is the second generation of that idea and now it's available for a few more people. That's because they've got the tri-band HSPA (850/1900/2100) version in the wild.

Samsung Nexus S 4G Offers Pure Google Experience to Sprint

sprint-nexus-s-4g

The official Google phone is now rocking some 4G connectivity... depending on your exact definition of what it means to have 4G. The Google Nexus S has been available since December of last year, but the American version only played friendly with T-Mobile's bands. That's changed, since Sprint has picked up its own version in the form of the Samsung Nexus S 4G.

Just about every manufacturer came out with an Android device at CES, they would quickly point out that their product offering could support Flash 10.1. Naturally, this is a direct pot shot at Apple and it seems that Google is stepping up its flashiness once more with support for Flash 10.2.
