The Samsung Nexus S, running on the latest version of the Google operating system, Android 2.3, has just been released in the US.Google has delayed the public release of the open source software for Android 2.3, or ‘Gingerbread’, until sometime after the Nexus S release.
The Google partnered mobile could see a release in Australia in early 2011.
“Samsung Electronics Australia is excited at the prospect of bringing the Nexus S to Australia. We are currently reviewing our options on how to bring this to market locally and look forward to sharing more details at a later stage,” said a spokesperson for Samsung’s Australian division.
Vodafone carried the Google Nexus One in Australia which suffered diminutive sales both locally and abroad, but the telecom is yet to confirm their partnership for the Nexus S.
Best Buy in the US currently retails the phone at around US$200 on a T-Mobile contract while Google has reported that the mobile will go for US$530 outright.
