Fresh from the Web 2.0 Summit, Google Chairman/CEO Eric Schmidt gave a great tease of what’s to come by showing off a Nexus S being used, running on T-Mobile. In that same deal, he revealed that the smartphone will have NFC (Near Field Communication) capabilities, which he thinks will be very useful for transactions that are used to be dominated by credit cards. Other than that, he didn’t announce its manufacturer nor its release date, although we have some rumors for basis of speculation. And also in line with that rumor, Schmidt said that Android 3.0 (Gingerbread) will be released in a few weeks, so it’s highly probable that the Nexus S will come with it.
