Google After countless rumours, leaked screenshots, and what not, Google has officially unveiled Android 2.3, dubbed Gingerbread, today. Accompanying the release of this new Android version is the Nexus S, a Samsung-made successor to HTC's Nexus One, which delivers the pure Google experience - unlocked, without additional crap.

An unlocked phone with just vanilla android and no crapware. Shouldn't they all come this way.... or at least, shouldn't we have the option to buy them this way?

That's one of the things I find odd about the current smartphone landscape: despite being less "open" on a fundamental level, the Pre phones/WebOS still seem to be more open in practical terms (in the sense of imposing fewer restrictions on end-users) when compared with most Android phones.
