Google shows off Nexus S with NFC features Google CEO Eric Schmidt has shown off the upcoming Nexus S device today at the Web 2.0 summit, finally confirming that the device at least exists.
It will launch via T-Mobile, likely before the end of the year.

Outside of those facts, Schmidt would only call the Nexus S an "unannounced phone" from "an unannounced manufacturer" although most leaks seem to indicate it will come from Samsung.

The CEO also confirmed that Android 2.3 Gingerbread is coming within the "next few weeks" and definitely before Christmas.

A new key technology for Google is apparently the addition of NFC chips, a standard that should make commerce even easier than swiping a physical credit card.
