Nexus S Showcased at Web 2.0 Summit

While at the Web 2.0 summit, Eric Schmidt, Google’s CEO apparently gave a live demonstration of a device he called an “unannounced phone” from an “unannounced manufacturer,” however even though the handset logo was taped over it was obvious the device was the Nexus S smartphone.

According to an article over on the Boy Genius Report by Zach Epstein and by way of Engadget, the successor to the Google Nexus One superphone was showcased by Schmidt although he didn’t reveal any new details other than making mention that the device will include NFC capability.

Apparently Schmidt also joked that although he admits he said Google would not release a “Nexus Two” device he didn’t say anything about the letter “S”.

According to the updated Engadget article the Nexus S handset sports the T-Mobile logo and that Schmidt has confirmed that Android 2.3 Gingerbread will be out in “the next few weeks.”

Any of our readers have a hankering to maybe pick up the Google Nexus S once it gets released?
