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.

Love Samsung, for their LCD panels, but not for the phones. Google should have stayed with HTC instead imo.

I think the idea is to have a different OEM for each release. I think LG or Motorola will be next.

What's more likely is the engineers at Google are just chatting about their current favourite Android devices, and what they want to base their next Nexus on. The device they feel best captures Android currently. It could also be that Google want to keep an image separate from HTC, so it doesn't look like some unholy alliance where HTC get all the cool new toys (access to latest Android code) and an unfair leg up on the competition.
