Interesting facts about the Google Nexus S

After much persuasion I’ve finally got my very own .com Please do update your bookmarks to my new blog

The Google Nexus S was recently launched in Malaysia last weekend. I had a chance to play around with it and here’s some interesting observation on Google’s latest Nexus.

Countour Display

The “Countour display”, Google and Samsung claims that the Nexus S is the first device to offer such a display, looking at all the other flat touchscreen displays out there currently this really made the Nexus S special. Holding  against your cheeks feel really natural as the curvature of the glass hugs the curvature of the cheeks. With a contoured screen, coupled with a ridge on the back of the phone makes it easy and comfortable to type with. I was intrigued with this little technological marvel and decided to dig deeper.

The phone retails for RM 1999 at th end of april, a subsidy of RM 550 for a 1 year contract and RM 800 for 2 years, making the device priced at only RM 1449 and RM 1199.

Samsung Galaxy S II unveiled

Samsung Galaxy S II

Samsung Galaxy S II

Finally the successor to Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S has been announced, the Samsung Galaxy S II. It comes with a 4.27″ WVGA Super AMOLED Plus touchscreen and it comes with a Samsung dual-core processor in an extremely thin 8.49 mm body as compared to 9.9 mm on the Galaxy S and to my surprise it’s lighter as well.

It comes loaded with extras such as

  • Android 2.3 (Gingerbread)
  • TouchWiz UI v4.0
  • Gyroscope sensor
  • 16GB/32GB storage, 1 GB RAM
  • 8 MP (3264×2448 pixels) camera with autofocus and LED flash (finally !!)
  • Full HD video recording (1080p@30fps)
  • 2MP secondary camera for video calls
  • Connectivity includes HSPA+ together with WiFi a/b/g/n and Bluetooth 3.0+HS.
  • Li-Ion 1650 mAh

I have no idea how Samsung pulled it off and manage to pack so much feature and technology into the new Galaxy S II and still keep it light. They even increased the battery capacity and it now comes with a 1650 mAh, to power it all up. I can’t wait to see how it fares with the Google Nexus S and what Apple has up their sleeve this year with the iPhone.
