Samsung Nexus Two Release Date

Looks like Google is switching up is standard handset builder and moving from HTC to Samsung for its Nexus Two.

We’re now pretty confident this will turn out to just be the nexus S.. no big deal

We have no details other than it won’t be running the usual Samsung UI (which is a huge plus in our books) and that it will be the first device to be released with Android 2.3 Gingerbread (looks like they’re not going with 3.0 after all..)

We think its reasonable to expect the official release of Gingerbread to be the same week if not the same day.

The generalĀ consensusĀ is that Samsung is nowhere near the hardware manufacturer that HTC is – we all sincerely hope they surprise us with this one.
