    The Nexus S gets a glowing review from the guys over at TechCrunch, who claim to have had and been using the device for the past few days. Here's the link:

    What do you guys think?

    First review I've ever seen that doesn't have pictures of the device that was "reviewed." Or much information that you couldn't get from the official releases.

    I have my doubts as well, but I thought I'd share it anyway.

    That's exactly what I thought when first looking at it.

    Anyway I am waiting to see how it rates in other reviews.

    From official Nexus S site:

    Connectivity

    Quad-band GSM: 850, 900, 1800, 1900
    Tri-band HSPA: 900, 2100, 1700
    HSPA type: HSDPA (7.2Mbps) HSUPA (5.76Mbps)

    AT&T uses 850 & 1900 3G bands, so no AT&T love on the Nexus S (yet).

    It pretty much is a Galaxy S phone. which makes it that much worse that most of the other Galaxy S phones don't even have (official) froyo yet.

    Outside the US they do, officially. Or like here in Japan, launched WITH 2.2 out of the box.

    The Engadget review this morning was somewhat better though still preview. But many photos and a short video. I'm sure the reviews will all trickle in eventually even on here at Android Central.

    I think when we all get 2.3 on our Nexus One models, we'll feel better. But if it's slow as molasses we'll be crying here in the forums.
