New Galaxy S, Sorry… Nexus 2 Is Real… Apparently

According to Gizmodo, the recent rumours that have been circulating over the imminent release of a Nexus Two from Google are more than rumours. They are, in fact, that rarest of breed – accurate rumours.

A friend of the site got their hands on the phone and it is, to all intents and purposes, a slightly updated version of the Samsung Galaxy S and there’s good reason for that; namely, the fact that it’s being made by Samsung.

The screen is allegedly the same, the design is remarkably similar, but it does have a front facing camera and that’s roughly where the differences end. Of course, if you like the Galaxy S and you want basically the latest version that will also be packing the latest version of the Google Android operating system then this news will make you happy. If, on the other hand, you were hoping for something a little bit special like the Nexus 1 was when it was first released then you’ll be disappointed.

If mobile phones and Android are your thing then news of the Sony Ericsson Zeus may be of interest. It’s essentially a PSP combined with an Android based mobile phone making it very unique indeed and quite possibly the bridge between mobile phones and mobile gaming that has yet to surface.

It is rumoured to have a 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM while the screen is going to be roughly 4″ diagonally and have a multi-touch touchpad screen. Froyo is the operating system that’s being touted at the moment but there’s plenty of time for that to become the Gingerbread that we’re all hearing so much about but seeing little of.

If you’re a gamer then surely this has to be better than the likes of the Nokia gaming phone and may actually be worth buying though the price may turn out to be a little too rich for most gamers and the phone element of the hybrid device not good enough for those that can reasonably afford one.
