Google's Nexus S marks 'Gingerbread' debut

Reviews: Smart phone lacks high-quality photos, video

Despite the discontinuation of its first smart phone, search giant Google announced the release of a second new smart phone last week, the Nexus S.

The Nexus S is a follow-up to the Nexus One, which Google began selling in January but discontinued in July after lackluster sales. The company collaborated with phone manufacturer Samsung to create the Nexus S. It is the first phone to run Gingerbread, the latest version of the Android operating system.
