Google Nexus S debuts at web expo, Android 3.0 landing in weeks

Google Chief Executive Officer Eric Schmidt had Android fanboys salivating last yesterday, after showcasing a mystery smartphone thought to be the Nexus S at a web expo.

In his keynote address at Web 2.0, Schmidt was tight-lipped about the handset, thought to be the second-ever Google branded smartphone, revealing only that it was “unannounced phone” from an “announced manufacturer.

However, the good folk at Endgadget sweet-talked him into giving them a little peep and among other things noted that it sported a Super AMOLED display – a hallmark of the Galaxy S from Samsung, whom it has previously been rumoured is manufacturing the phone on Google’s behalf.

They also noted that the phone was “exceptionally thin” with dimensions comparable to the iPhone and featured a black plastic back section not a million miles away from the BlackBerry Bold.

The Google main mover was more notably forthcoming in his revelations about the next major Android operating system update. Apparently, it’s due to land in the “coming weeks”. But rather frustratingly for the Fandroids, he didn’t disclose whether it will debut on the Nexus S.
