The funny thing about Android is that a new "best" phone comes out every few months. Fortunately, current Android owners don't have to be terribly envious of the Nexus S, even if it is, yes, the best Android phone now.
Android has never felt more alive than it does on the Nexus S. It's fast. It's cocksure. It's, well, really good.
The new Google Phone is coming December 16, and when it does it'll run you $529 unlocked or $199 with a new two year T-Mobile contract. Like its predecessor, you'll be able to get one online directly through Google, or (or!) at Best Buy locations, Best Buy Mobile stores, and on BestBuy.com. [Nexus S]
The new Google Phone is here: The Nexus S. Built by Samsung, it's got a 4-inch Super AMOLED "Contour Display," 1GHz Hummingbird processor, NFC support, and most importantly, it's running a completely clean version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread.
