Takes on similar appearance to Galaxy Tab
Samsung is preparing to release a white version of its Google Nexus S smartphone in Germany. The device takes some design cues from a version of its stable mate, the Galaxy Tab that also comes in very similar look with a black front and a white back. The stylistic treatment also reflects the original white iPhone 3G first unveiled by Apple in June 2008.
Other than the cosmetic tweak, the white Nexus S remains unchanged in the specs department. It runs a plain vanilla version of Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) that brings an iPhone-like copy-and-paste text system and a boost to multitasking with quicker access to the task manager, among other OS enhancements. Like a number of Samsung’s current line of Galaxy S phones, the Nexus S is powered by a 1GHz Hummingbird processor with PowerVR SGX 540 graphics.
