Nexus S delayed because Android 2.3 not optimized for dual-core? AndroidandMe has put together a long article today, collecting all the info it could on the upcoming Nexus S "superphone," which will sell on T-Mobile, likely before the end of the year or in early January.
Apparently, the Nexus S might already in customer's hands had final prototypes not been scrapped at the last minute so Samsung could add a dual-core processor to the device.

Because the addition of a dual-core processor was last-minute, Google is still working on optimizing Android 2.3 Gingerbread to work with the processors.

The site says the pictures leaked to Engadget earlier this week were also leaked right from the source, an effort by Samsung to keep buzz going for the delayed device.

It is unclear what dual-core processor is in the device, but many are speculating it is the new Samsung Orion, which runs both cores at 1GHz.
