If anything, I would say it was mostly Google's for the delay. They themselves wanted people to move to the Nexus S because they're trying to gamble on that NFC feature. And gingerbread was created mainly for the Nexus S, not Nexus One. It will take time for it to be ported to the Nexus One since they are completely different phones.

I came from the Vibrant. I know about all the delays but even still everything about why it's delayed is still speculation at this point. I personally think it has more to do with Samsung's lack of priority in supporting older devices since they have a reputation of horrible update timelines. Afterall, they make $ selling phones, not updating older devices so it would only make sense that they put more resources into making new phones rather than updating the software. I don't think holding back the update on the original vibrant would increase the desire for the Vibrant+. Delaying this update has proven to only piss off a large amount of vibrant owners and turn more people away from purchasing another Samsung.

Sounds pretty easy to me

Then again I'm all about the conspiracy theories

It's possible but what's in it for Google? That's like Samsung telling Google, "hey jump off this bridge" and Google going "dur!! okay!!!"

Keep in mind, Google doesn't make $ off the sale of new phones. They don't care which one you get as long as you purchase Android.

Regardless, even if the new phone came out with 2.4 before the Nexus S, knowing the pace of Samsung, the Nexus S will still be getting Ice Cream Sandwich before this new phone (if there even is a new phone).

I had a G2 and I could barely get past 6Mbps in a well-covered "4G" area. My Nexus S on a good day gets a solid 5mbps. That's good enough for me. I'll wait for a year to get a new phone.

You do realize it could be months till you see this phone in your hands too right? That is the world we live in. You know your brand new phone is outdated before we even get your hands on it. You would never hear about this kind of stuff so far in advance before but now you do. I say deal with it. Accept it. All companies are like that. You have to keep moving forward.

The above article was written before the Nexus S release. I'm pretty sure I9023 is just a remake of the NS for europe.

http://www.mobilegazette.com/samsung...s-10x12x16.htm

Notice how it says, "Expected December 2010 (US & UK), Q1/Q2 2011 (Worldwide)"

After doing some more research I found this German site:

http://translate.google.com/translat...%26prmd%3Divns

The translation of the last paragraph is something worth noting.

"Samsung Nexus S (I9023) is a smart phone with Android operating system 2.3 (Gingerbread), four-inch capacitive touch screen (480x800 pixels). Samsung's own processor, a gigahertz chip and IFX6160.

Just to let everyone know, we are angry, we just got this phone not even a month ago and there is an updated model. That's kind of new... I am still hoping it is some different colour.
