The Google Nexus S, the first phone to run Gingerbread (Android 2.3), has been picked up by Vodafone.
The Samsung-made handset was announced at the tail end of last year, but is currently available exclusively from Carphone Warehouse. Oh, and various Amazon Marketplace sellers, but they’re mega expensive.
Until now, the device has kept a fairly low profile despite being the official Gingerbread standard bearer, but it’s sure to get a bit more exposure on Vodafone, one of the UK’s biggest networks.
The date and price have yet to be announced, though TechRadar had the news of its launch confirmed as definite by a Vodafone spokesperson.
The Google Nexus S is just over £30 per month on a 24-month contract from Carphone Warehouse (on O2). It’s also available for £430 on PAYG/SIM free. Presumably Vodafone’s pricing won't be hugely different.
The handset features a curved Super AMOLED 4in screen, and NFC support for contactless payments. Check out our specs page for more techy stuff.
