Out is the Google Nexus One from HTC and the Nexus line of the Google Android phones. This time as we had earlier reported, it is coming from Samsung and is called the Nexus S, not quite surprised with the Samsung’s S hooked to it. The release of the device had been shoddy specially associated to be coming with Gingerbread, but as reported a couple of days back, it has finally come out on December 6.

The markets will have the Google Nexus S available on December 16, a good 9 days before Christmas to give you the right amount of time to buy it as a gift. For yourself first and then for those you care for or vice versa. The Google Nexus S will be available unlocked on T-Mobile online plan from Best Buy and its Mobile Stores in the US and will shortly make it to the Best Buy and Carphone warehouse in the UK, December 20 onwards. The Google Nexus S will be priced at $529 in the US and £549 in the UK [this is the unlocked price].

Google has released the official specs for the Nexus S and they look to be, by far the best for any Android phone so far:
