As expected the Google Gingerbread announcement was garnished with a new Google handset, dubbed Nexus S. The Samsung-made smartphone features the latest Android version and an unusual curved display that should be more comfortable to handle and hold next to the face.

Quite expectedly the Google Nexus S features almost the same specs as the Samsung's best-selling Galaxy S. The 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED screen returns, embedded within a curved glass and protected with anti-fingerprint coating.

Nexus S is powered by the 1GHz Hummingbird processor, packs 512MB RAM and 16GB internal memory, but there is no word about microSD slot. There camera department stays the same as on the Galaxy S - a 5 megapixel snapper with HD camcorder - but this time it comes with a LED flash. There is a secondary video-call camera too, but no FM radio.

Finally the connectivity is top-notch as usual - Wi-Fi b/g/n with DLNA support, GPS, quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G with HSPA, Bluetooth and even Near Field Communications capabilities.

Google Nexus S runs on the latest Android v2.3 Gingerbread and offers all Google goodies. If you want to know more about the new version of the Google OS, you may want to check this article.

The Nexus S will hit the US via T-Mobile and Best Buy on 16 December, while the European premiere will be on 20 December in UK at Carphone Warehouse. The unlocked price is 650, ouch!

Probably the game you mention is called "Brain Buddies". It plays pretty well on my SGS, but I have to say is a bit slow and sometimes two consecutive touches are interpreted as "zoom". The game is clearly made for mouse. Try play...
