Samsung Nexus S Gingerbread test

Born from the collaboration between Google and Samsung Nexus S shows a design profile "round" that is actually easy to handle and a large curved display, designed to offer support to face more ergonomic.

The interface, for those already accustomed to using Android, does not offer many surprises and presents the five customizable home screen (with more widgets and shortcuts used), even if the adoption of the new OS some Gingerbread innovation and improvement has been introduced anyway. These included a scroll bar for reporting more readable, the selection for copy and paste it easier to use and a new virtual keyboard is benefiting from a greater space between the keys is to expedite the multitouch writing special characters.
