If its the older tech like they say it might get swallowed by the sheer wave of droids and Galaxies. Other handset makers are churning out tons of phones, might be hard to stand out.

A faster processor would go a long way to make itself distinct.

The hardware of the Nexus S will need to be more than a Galaxy rehash, if they want it to sell. I mean if it doesn't feature better hardware, there isn't much to differentiate it frrom the Nexus One. A front facing camera, onboard GPU chip, and 0.3" more screen just isn't a big enough upgrade to justify purchase.

Nexus S = Nexus Samsung = Nexus SH*T.
I ain't buying anything ever again from Samsung.
I have only bad experiences with Samsung and Google gave the project to Samsung.
HTC, Sony Ercisson or Motorola would be a lot better.

Pretty clearly says T-Mobile for the carrier name at the top. A have an HTC HD2 with Froyo installed, and absolutely love the 4.3" screen. I think a 4.5" screen might actually have some tangible benefits, at least to a screen whore like me. Coupled with facetime chat and AMOLED screen, I think the Nexus S could be a good upgrade phone for anyone who doesnt already have the latest and greatest. Then again, the real benefits are probably in Gingerbread, and once I have that installed I probably wont care about anything else.

Bleh. The Nexus One set a benchmark for phones and hand a very fast processor and more RAM than most smartphones back when it was released. It makes no sense to release a Nexus successor that doesn't raise the bar for other Andorid phones, that was the whole point of the Nexus One.
