Focus between the latest two Android-specific announcements from Google, and Samsung, has been torn between the hardware side of things, and the software. While Google announced that the Android 2.3 SDK was available now for developers to download, they also announced in tandem with Samsung that the first Android 2.3-based device would be launching on December 16th, called the Nexus S. It's a smartphone that, unlike the Nexus One before it, wasn't necessarily built from the ground-up for this unveiling, but that's not a bad thing, as the Galaxy S lineage of devices is a great base to improve off.

The Daily Slash: November 16 2010

Today we reconfirm the idea that Google Voice for iPhone is a big deal - then argue about it! Apple told the world they'd be changed forever after today, then the Beatles are released on iTunes! We review and/or unbox the following items: SoundFreaq SFQ-01A, Google Voice for iPhone, Samsung Continuum, and Evan's epic week with the HTC HD7 continues with "Software!" Barnes and Noble's Nook Color officially goes on sale, and Google CEO Eric Schmidt's Web 2.0 2010 appearance video is up for multiple views - the Nexus S! Gingerbread! Sweetness! On the business end of things, Samsung Galaxy Tab's production may very well be cut in half due to poor demand, Panasonic is entering the Japanese Smartphone market in 2011, and 1 MILLION Optimus One smartphones have been sold in one month!

The phone he displayed was none other than the mystical Nexus S, the same one we've been all a jibbles about since last week. Gingerbread held some sensual code-reading paying-for-donuts secrets of its own as well...

The Daily Slash: November 11 2010

Double Slash! Today is the first day we've ever run a post by the name of "SlashGear Morning Wrap-Up" for those of you who just can't wait until nighttime to get your daily dosage of technological gear news in list form. Then, it was a day just bursting at the seams with information about one phone: Nexus S. This Nexus S, also known by its codename Samsung GT-i9020, was today first accidentally(?) outed by Best Buy in a momentary broken online ad, then there were photo leaks and secret updates leading to a possible name confirmation, then another Best Buy leak leading to the date November 14 for store displays! Coincidence? Just about as much coincidence as a My Little Pony turned soldering iron.

Nexus S: What’s Google got to gain?

So spoke Google CEO Eric Schmidt back in July 2010, confirming the search giant's hardware motivations with the HTC-made smartphone and downplaying any intention of a second-generation phone. Now, with the Samsung-made Google Nexus S (aka the Nexus Two or Samsung GT-i9020) confirmed as imminent in all but press release, the question is what Google hopes to achieve with their next self-branded device.
