Google Launches the Nexus S Phone – But is it Wise or Necessary?

Tuesday, December 7th, 2010

Just what the world needs … yet another smart phone.

Google has launched their new own-branded Smartphone, the Samsung-made Nexus S, to lots, some, a bit of fanfare around the world.  The handset runs the latest version of their Android operating system and includes some interesting new features including Near Field Communications (NFC) that can allow people to make electronic payments by swiping their phone near a reader.  This is a technology that’s already being used in places such as Japan for travel tickets and small purchases.
