    Well we've all been hearing rumors of the supposed new Nexus device by Samsung but there has been no real hard evidence. The rumor has even been shot down by some of the big tech blogs. Today however Phandroid got a hold of a screencap from T-Mobiles mobile site showing the device. The site said "the Nexus S. Available only at Best Buy this holiday season" accompanied by a Pre-Order link.

    Nobody can confirm the device exists but I personally feel this little slip up is proof that it's on the way or somebody is playing a well played joke. Either way I'm sure we will find out soon enough. Pure speculation on my part, but I believe this will be the device that will bring Gingerbread out of the oven and onto our tables.

    In similar news Android and me reports that a last minute hardware issue delayed the launch. Interesting other bit of info a big holiday event that was supposed to occur on November 20th at T-Mo was canceled. So there you have it.

    What say you?

    Is it unprecedented for Best Buy to be the only outlet for a T-mobile phone? It seems odd to me but I don't know if it's happened before.

    I always have the feeling that we are one step ahead of most when it comes to what is going on in the World of Android - this just reaffirms that theory

    If this is true, and not some doctored photo, this would be better than the direct from Google approach used for the N1. That didnt go so well remember. Using a retail store makes more sense, and who better than Best Buy? Too bad its T-mobile only.

    It seems that T-mobile always gets vanilla android phones. This was suposed to be called the Nexus 2 before they changed the name, right?

    I too would like to see a true 'vanilla' Android phone on other carriers (spec. VZW)...

    D1 might be all we'll ever get....

    Actual pics are up on Engadget right now. I'd like it if this would come to VZW with a functioning GPS.

    If this was coming to VZW, I would jump on this over the "DIncHD", but it wont as I am of the firm belief that VZW was "generous" enough to let the first phone be vanilla, but will have none of that from here on out....

    I like the looks of the screen. Not a fan of hard buttons and it looks like any soft buttons are only visible when on....

    edit*** if it doesn't have that plastic feel to it. Earlier rumors were that it would have a solid feel and metal material.

    It looks really nice. Very smooth. Hope its solid. Like the droids. Too bad I'm limited to Verizon.

    If the INC HD doesnt come out soon, I would consider going to T-Mo or AT&T (T-Mo phones work on AT&T, right?) for this "Nexus S" if it is as open as the first Nexus....look at that huge hacking community, it's even got a functional Sense rom.

    The silver lining for those of us on the Galaxy S train, is that since it is a Samsung with a similar hardware build (I'm guessing), it should expedite those of us rooted with a stock Gingerbread (and beyond) experience sooner rather than later ;)
