Hell yeah!!!! What kind of stupid question is that?
Prolly when it support other network (AT&T, etc)
Eh, wake me up in Q1 2011 when the dual-cores phones come.
I can't care less for this. Just give me Gingerbread already.
Who is getting the Nexus S [Poll]
So now we know what the Nexus S is pretty much all about? After reading many of the posts and comments, there are alot of mixed feelings toward this device. So i figured to just run a poll to see which one of you guys planning to get this when it launch?

Let me ask Phil... but as of now I really like this device. Just that 2.3 and the design and the best specs on the market... Just like the Nexus One, the Nexus S will be around for another good year or maybe even 2. As of now though, I am definitely leaning on purchasing one, considering I don't have THAT much music.Devices: Samsung Nexus S 4.0.1(alpha, of course), Samsung Vibrant 2.3.5 CM7 w/ Glitch Kernel v13, broken HTC Dream, and a Google Cr-48 with Ubuntu 11.10

I currently have a vibrant and this phone has everything I want on my phone. It has flash for the rear camera and it has a front facing camera. Plus it comes with 2.3 and added technology. The fact that its a google phone makes it even better. I like the touchwiz ui but I like the fact of not having to wait so long for updates or added bloatware. I think I will strongly consider this phone. So what if it doesnt have a dual core processor, the lack of sd slot is a bit odd though, i think it might be there just not come with a micro sd preinstalled. Either way, I think it seems like a great phone. I think the vibrant is fast enough. Wouldve liked hspa+ but oh well. ill wait a bit though. If the galaxy s 2 comes out with all the rumored specs it has, which I highly doubt considering each carrier got a different version of the current galaxy s, I might look into that. But for now, the nexus s is just right.

If I Could Take The Epic Keybord, And The Beautiful SAMOLED(Yes Its Does Have One) Screen on The Nexus S(Also The Perk Of Being The First With Every New Android Opperating System) And Merge Them Together, I Would. Then I'd Have The perfect phone Until The End Of Next Year.

I know the Ns is missing some features that would make it by far the best out there but I am still impressed. Guess we are just taking baby steps...I think I am more happy about buying it so I dont have to worry too much about updates. Weak reason but what can you do?

It's the command to fully unlock the bootloader on the Nexus One, so you can edit the OS any way you like.
The command may be different on the Nexus S, but you won't have to hack your way into it because the manufacturer has the hardware locked, like almost every other phone.ಠ_ಠ

Wouldnt it be cool if we can buy phones like computer where there is a basic spec and just pay more to upgrade the spec u desire. Sound sort of dumb, but just throwing some thought out there.

I think the real disappointment is not in the lack of dual-core vs. single-core, but the baffling (not so baffling, really, considering I feel the Google/Sammy partnership came mid-year during or after the Galaxy S success, and they both rushed to get the next Nexus with Gingerbread out before Xmas) decision to not support HSPA+. Considering all carriers are pushing and moving toward "4G" for the year 2011 (which is coming in 3 weeks), and that some handsets out currently feature it already, makes it difficult to drop $529 dollars on a phone that isn't future-proof into the year 2011, at least. Along with the other minor detractors (eg. lack of SD slot, 480p HD, NFC seemingly only a glorified bar code scanner, dropping the LED) it just seems like a step back, and doesn't live up to the Nexus branding.

I really want the Nexus S, I've been with blackberry forever. I went with a G1 when it came out and I hated it due to it's lack of features and just buggy Android....
Coming from blackberry, the biggest deal breaker is the LED.. I've learned to rely on it a lot and I do think i would miss it... Going to such a high end phone I want to make sure I make the right choice.
My contract will be available to full upgrade in March so I think I will wait it out and see what is out by then.. I've made it this long on my now obsolete 8900 hardware I can stick it out a couple of months...
I also would add one of the biggest selling points on this for me is the "Pure Google" experience and getting updates first... But from what I have read that can be gained by rooting and using other roms.
