Now that we have all come back to reality and accepted that Monday’s Samsung event won’t be the launch of the next Nexus device, focus has shifted to figuring out exactly when it will be dropping. The phone was supposed to be ready to launch concurrently with Android 2.3, but newly discovered hardware issues may make this an impossibility, especially if the rumored November 11th debut of Gingerbread pans out.
But rest assured, the phone is real, and will feature a stock install of the latest version of Android. What it will offer beyond the Galaxy S is unknown, but we suspect some overall hardware improvements. When will we see it? Who knows, but hopefully sooner rather than later.
