Cnet got their hands on the Android 2.3 Gingerbread device and gave it the once over going into detail, they say the good pints about the Nexus S is the latest Android 2.3 Gingerbread operating system, the screen is big and beautiful, the handset is very fast indeed, comes packed with many features and looks like it will get updated promptly. However, they did have a few bad pints that include the new user interface is almost identical and that the NFC isn’t useful yet. Please read the full Cnet Review.

Big Boy’s Engadget had a little play with this handset as well at the D: Dive Into Mobile conference in San Francisco, they give great detail about the phone and have an awesome photo gallery and video, please do click the links here as it is very informative indeed.
