The cellphone industry is currently experiencing some serious competition. Manufacturers are all trying to provide the ultimate experience for users through applications and innovative power charging solutions. Google is currently in a very interesting position as it is not a cellphone handset manufacturer but rather looking to partner with a recognised manufacturer. Their first phone was in all honesty a decent product but ensured that Google will never do customer service again. Complaints about service delivery were seen all over technology blogs and in the press. The Google Nexus One had one major issue for me: It was not available in all regions thorough official channels.
The reason that Google is in the cellphone industry is simple: They want to speed up the adoption of their operating system, Android. It is no secret that Google is trying to diversify. The search engine juggernaut wants to be at the centre of the entire Internet experience.
The Google Nexus S is the new challenger to the iPhone. It features the latest version of the Android software, called Gingerbread. The Nexus S is the first smartphone to feature a 4” Contour Display designed to fit comfortably in the palm of your hand and along the side of your face. It also features a 1GHz Hummingbird processor, front and rear facing cameras, 16GB of internal memory, and NFC (near field communication) hardware that lets you read information from NFC tags. NFC is a fast, versatile short-range wireless technology that can be embedded in all kinds of everyday objects like movie posters, stickers and t-shirts.
Any ideas what the next Google Phone will be called? Hopefully not, Nexus Z (sounds like a secret agent, right?).
