Nexus S Makes Its Debut

The second generation of the Google Phone, better known as the Nexus S, officially went on sale Thursday in Best Buy stores across the United States. Last week, Google officially announced the Nexus S, a “pure” Google phone running Android 2.3, a.k.a. Gingerbread.

In addition to a 1 GHz Cortex A8 processor, 16GB of flash memory and front- and rear-facing cameras, it also boasts a 4-inch Super AMOLED screen and design based on the Samsung Galaxy S. Starting now, the Android phone will be sold in Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile stores online and in physical, U.S.-based stores. You can acquire one with a two-year T-Mobile service plan for $199 or buy one without contract for $529.99.

Is its presence in a major retail chain enough to avoid the sad fate of its predecessor, the Nexus One? Even though the Nexus S looks better than the Nexus One in terms of looks and technical specifications, from my point of view I am not that confident that they will have a huge impact with their sales. It remains to be seen …
