I'd still prefer this Google Nexus S without HSPA+ (all speculation) over a Samsung Nexus S variant and tmobile printed all over it and slow updates. The networks can not handle a full 21Mbps or even half of that yet. My buddies download speeds on his g2 are barely better than mine. Once the network can achieve more I'll be perfectly happy maxing out my 7Mbps, and by then I'll probably own the Nexus dual core with HSPA+ anyway.
I'm on crack(flashers)!
I gave justification for that statement in my other post. Do you think G2 owners are going to dump their phones to pick one up that can handle 21Mbps? Not a change because they aren't even close to maxing out their 14Mbps cap yet. Hell they can barely max out the 7Mbps limit we have.
What? How do you know that this one isn't Google as well? You're assuming that Samsung will release a Nexus phone when that is a Google branding. I'm sure this would be all Google still. The Nexus S we have now has AWS for T-Mobile bands and we don't have T-Mobile bloatware all over it.
I don't see what people are getting upset about. Who cares if there is a different color Nexus S coming out, and there is no mention that there will anything added to this version over what we have. If the only change is color and maybe SLCD screen then who cares? Wait, don't the euro NS already have SLCD? Either way, I highly doubt Google will be releasing a new Nexus phone before the end of the summer, especially with just an incremental update to 2.4. Even if they added HSPA+ that would not be enough to release a Nexus S Plus.
That's mostly because of the network which is why they push out low speeds. I have a G2, I know. And us not being able to hit them RIGHT NOW doesn't mean we can't want it. Whenever T-Mobile fixes their network to be able to actually push out HSPA+ speeds then we can have a device ready to take it.
Samsung has held back 2.3 from the Nexus One to help sales of the Nexus S
Samsung is holding back 2.2 from the Vibrant to help with sales of the Vibrant Plus
Samsung now going to hold back 2.4 from the Nexus S to help sales of the Nexus S Plus?
History indicates yes
