Nexus S showed off by Google CEO. Android Gingerbread to arrive in the coming weeks

Although it’s still unannounced, the Google Nexus S is not only real, but it’s also really, really close to being launched. Just yesterday, Google’s CEO – Eric Schmidt – showed off the smartphone during the Web 2.0 summit in New York.

The Nexus S was running on T-Mobile (so T-Mo should be one of the carriers to launch it in the US). Schmidt said the handset is made by an “unannounced manufacturer” – but this is most likely Samsung.

Eric Schmidt also said Android Gingerbread 2.3 would be out “in the next few weeks”.

According to TNW, the new version of Android will come with support for NFC (just like Nokia’s new smartphones). The Nexus S already features NFC capabilities.

The Google Nexus S will probably be out at the same time with Gingerbread – so let’s sit back and wait for its official announcement.
