Google Nexus S gets unboxed at Android Community

Google's Nexus S has landed over at Android Community, and Ewdi has wasted no time in getting the Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone opened up in a video unboxing. First impressions are good, too, with the handset being sturdy - if plasticky - in its construction, and Gingerbread proving slick on the 1GHz Hummingbird processor.

Ewdi, being the geek he is, marks Samsung down for omitting a microSD card slot and for not taking the opportunity to bump the processor above what's by now the baseline for high-end Android devices. Where the Nexus One pushed the envelope in terms of smartphone CPUs, the Nexus S doesn't even get a 1.2GHz chip like the DROID 2 Global.
