Will the Google Nexus S have a curved display? - read the full textFollowing yesterday's appearance of the Nexus S comes a bit of odd gossip - its display is curved.

Apparently, Samsung did some research and concluded that concave displays have...

So to reiterate, even my little sister's prepaid E71 has better video calling capability than your 'state of the art', 'innovative' POS.

my Desire HD is also a unibody aluminium design and it has a replaceable battery, the N8 is unibody aluminum and it has a replaceable battery. The Desire Z is also aluminum unibody and it has a replaceable battery...

No No, no excuse whatso ever for the Galaxy S feeling like a salt cracker

Everyone knows that a phone battery will not last forever and with UK networks pushing for 24 month or even 36 month contracts phones like the Nokia N8 or the Sony Ericsson Xperia X10 mini do not have removable batterys! So i agree although the Galaxy S does have a tacky plastic back cover it does allow the user to remove the battery.

Watch 'Web 2.0 Summit 2010: Eric Schmidt, "A Conversation with Eric Schmidt' on Youtube. Eric (Google's CEO) mentioned this in the video: "I said there wouldn't be a Nexus Two... I never said there wouldn't be a Nexus S."

I think it's pretty obvious to anyone who's familiar with phone design that the handset in question is a Samsung. I also think that anyone who calls GSMarena 'biased' toward Samsung simply because they're of the same belief is an idiot. The shiny plastic backing and super amoled speak for themselves. Get your head checked please.

With that said, this phone is still unannounced as the next in the Nexus series. The last time a gingerbread phone was heralded as the new Nexus, it turned out to be the Continuum or whatever. So I would hold off on posting new articles every day on a phone that is as of yet utterly unconfirmed, GSMarena.
