I hate to beat a dead horse, and to contribute to the rumour mill and general early adopter anger, but if this i9023 does indeed have AWS 3G and is not a typo and if it includes a HSPA+ radio I will be mighty angry.
I have 2 days to return the phone within the Best Buy return period. Living in Chicago, having access to the HSPA+ network would be a nice bonus on top of an already nice phone. While not extremely important, it's just hard to swallow the idea that my $529 phone isn't utilizing the best parts of the network & its improved version is leaked days before early adopters are unable to retun their devices. I know life isn't fair, but this is a kick in the balls if true.
Iv read every post and so i thought i might as well join in.
Firstly i live in the UK which im pretty sure is part of Europe and i have the same Nexus S as you all have, and it was purchased from carphone warehouse which is BestBuy in the UK.
Secondly we have nothing to worry about;
1. Google know the only reason people buy the Nexus line is for first in line updates (otherwise none of us would be here) therefore if google had 2.4, that would mean this thread would be full of people happily downloading the OTA from some XDA guys link. (BASICALLY IF THEY HAD IT SO WOULD WE)
2. If anyone of you have watched the interview with the new UI guy (i always forget the name) he talked about honeycomb etc etc and how android would go button-less among other things. So basically if google did want to flagship the next version they would change the design which means the videos are fake or its a small update, which leads back to point 1... if it was a small update WE WOULD HAVE IT!!
3. My Nexus S box says 'Colour: Black Silver' so there are no new colour ranges (and no mine isnt a different colour, they are in fact referencing to the text on the back).
4. I may have a unique way of thinking or maybe im just putting pieces of a puzzle together but it seems to me there's only two very likely possibilities left. 1 - The Nexus S has a new HSPA+ chip and that's all, 2 - im wrong.
Just my way of looking at this all...
If all they do is put a new HSPA+ chip in it, What will the advantages be to a user in the UK? Would we get better signal? because if it only affects devices in the US, I dont mind, but if it has an advantage using it in the UK too, I might sell my NS on ebay quickly lol and wait for this new one.
