According to official spec on www.google.com/nexus it hasn't 720p (1024x720) video recording. It is only 720x480 with unspecified frame rate.

I would save my money for Samsung Orion (Google it up if not found here).

Not an Android Developer - but 16GB and no microSD card slot clearly depicts Gingerbread is designed to use the 16GB of memory for Application storage - quite similar to that of iOS.

Current device have 8 and 16GB of sdcard space but the apps do not get directly installed there - at most you can move them to the sdcard which eventually slows down 3D game performances.

This is a innovative move considering the new Gaming API introduced with Gingerbread.

720p@30fps is absolutely possible. I have used the phone already and I set the HD Camcorder to 1280X720 myself. The reviewer on that site was WRONG. End of story.

With standards jumping up to full hd these days, i can see memory capabilities lagging behind actualy. I want to have a collection of hd movies and games in my phone one day- 160 gig would barely suffice for that, not 16 :P

Do you know how many phones out there (aside SGS) has BT 3.0 so you can send your file on a higher rate? Almost None! at least you can use gyro in gaming and applications.
and why google didn't make a clear-cut tech geeky phone like nexus? Because the technology is not here at the moment. for the display, even samsung is stock at SAMOLED with this resolution. Dual-Core CPUs are not in the market and besides the CPU and GPU pack more punch than the requirement of every single application/game on the market.
But above all, NEXUS S is only a commnercial phone. It's the falgship of the Google VoIP and NFC technology and frankly, google doesn't care if it's not revolutionary. Because it's evolutionary!

It is almost galaxy S without some UNNECESSARY (:D) features ( I have to poke the google with this new phone ), IT has no BLUETOOTH 3 but it has gyro axis sensor...
Wht do you need more..?? bluetooth 3 or gyro sensor.???
Are we in 1980 decade ?? ( I think we are in 1980 because in those days we had some TV with curved screens.. :D:D:D )...
WOWWWWW, what a big difference between this new comer and NEXUS One, this new comer has 16GB internal memory with gyro sensor..
Do you really convinced to pay your money for this freak???
I am not.. I think my HTC Legend has at least a unibody aluminum if it does not have blutooth 3 or 1 GHz hummingbird processor.
I suggest you to buy Galaxy S or Droid 2 global if you want to have a full speed and full functioned cell phone..
Google, you make us ashamed about yourself...
you did not even make your screen resolution better than Galaxy S or your previous cellphone... Do you???
Why should I pay this money for this phone???
some one please tell why??!!!

Thats it? Why is there no support for t-mobile's advanced network? Why is it made out of plastic? Why are there no memory card slot? Why is bluetooth at 2.1 and not the more advance option that the galaxy s has to offer? This phones has great spec's but it is missing important upgrades. I really hoped for something more revolutionary. The Nexus One was a milestone upgrade to android devices and the Nexus S just doesn't push it to the next level. I can live with the current spec if only they would have include t-mobile's HSPA+ support. Samsung you have failed to catch my attention once again. HTC is the future of Android devices and it is HTC that should of been the manufacture of the latest Nexus device. Their Hardware is unbeatable and plastic does not define their design.
