    Looks like Google CEO Schmidt shows off the Nexus S and adds:

    "I said there would never be a Nexus Two. I said Two. There is a similarity between an S and a 2."

    Clever reasoning behind the naming convention...

    that would be my guess. samsung wants a reference to the fact they are making the phone.

    Perhaps it has nothing to do with the Galaxy S series but could fall in the same line of them releasing on multiple carriers. Each carrier has a Galaxy S with a sub-name (ex. Vibrant, Captivate, etc.). Maybe the Nexus S will have a lineup on each carrier with similar sub-naming conventions?

    You guys are all wrong...!!

    The reason that Nexus 2 name is changed to Nexus S is because Samsung doesn't want to be #2. Since Nexus ONE is taken by HTC, Samsung wants to stay away from numbering. That's why they go for Nexus S(amsung).

    your all wrong its the Nexus S because it stands for

    Nexus Side stepped making a better phone or to be more blunt
    Nexus Sucks this time around and should have let HTC have it again.

    im not all that upset really. Just disappointed in the final product. I was at best buy, 35 in stock only 2 people showed to buy one. After having it in my hand re-reading everything, I had to ask myself how much better was it than my captivate and the honest answer was not much. It has a front side camera and 2.3 was it worth 200$ no, the rest of its pretty much the same....broken gps, freezing issues, same essential guts etc.

    They truly failed at living up to the Nexus label I had already fell in love with.
    Sorry for the earlier rant but the phones a huge let down for me but its totally up to par with the galaxy S models they totally neglected while making it.

    suck it samsung.
