Google Nexus S Uncovered

Right after Android 2.3 Gingerbread has announced, Goole revealed their new flagship Android device: the Samsung manufactured Google Nexus S.

Surprisingle, besides the slightly curved Super AMOLED display, and the new NFC communication system, this Nexus S is quite... modest. A 5MP rear camera which can't even record HD 720p video (besides a VGA front-facing camera), the 4" Super AMOLED with "just" 800x480 resolution, a Cortex A8 CPU at 1Ghz, and no mention of RAM... which leads me to believe it will be 512MB.

Nexus S will go on sale on Dec 16th in the USA, and on the 20th in the UK.

The only reasons I can think of for such a modest hardware device, is either Google wants to launch this device at a very competitive price; or it wants for developers to optimize their Apps in order to run in this soon to be "overtaken" hardware (dual-core CPUs are just around the corner, with 1GB Ram, etc.)
