I would go for Nexus S because I will be updated with the latest versions of android, as for radio and tv output, I dont use those features much cos i carry all my music with me and having a 4 inch screen to watch videos n pics is more than enough for me.

On the back cover of the Galaxy S, Anybody knows the difference between the version with the Android logo and the one with the Google word as a text (with Google)???
P.S: I live in Egypt (Middle East & Africa)
Im in UK currently, I tot I will buy one when I get back to India in Jan end! Thats coz, UK has 8gb model unlike 16gb which is available in India. Unfortunately they have already stopped it! Even in UK, they are on clearance sale list! so im planning to get an unlocked phone in UK itself. Im not buying Nexus S!
They are stopping it coz, they are planning to get nexus S in! Because it wud be hard time for them to sell nexus S when galaxy S is still on. So I think they have decided to turn off Galaxy S and get Nexus S in. So if you are a SGS fan and you still havnt got one, jus go hunt for the remaining and grab one soon!
These are the things Nexus S lacks compared to SGS:
No Expandable memory (16GB might be sufficient for most, not me!)
No TV output! (One of the reasons I luv SGS for)
Older Version of Bluetooth! v2.1
and hell! thers no radio in it!
So all it has got is:
NFC(Which is not of much use in India yet)

There is no Samsung Galaxy S (I9000)available in India. Not even in Samsung stores of Delhi, Mumbai, Chennai or Kolkata and very much confirmed. Fone arena and GSM arena are still giving false statements. All fake. huh..
Viraf, 02 Jan 2011guys i m from India and i have heard galaxy s has been discontinued here. Why they r discontin... moreNothing to worry abt guys, the Galaxy S has been stopped to make way for Nexus S, the Nexus S should be availible by mid-february for Rs.24000, that's cheaper than Galaxy S, the only thing is it doesnt have expandable memory, it has 16gb internal memory
guys i m from India and i have heard galaxy s has been discontinued here. Why they r discontinuing such an awesome phone? It just launched 6 months back. Whats the main reason behind it? By no means its a faulty phone guys. Its been a big hit. Then why r they discontinuing it in India?
