Vodafone to Offer Nexus S

Vodafone says that Google’s Nexus S handset, the first running the latest version of the Android platform, Gingerbread, will be available in its stores worldwide “soon”. The phone, made by Samsung, features built-in NFC (Near Field Communciations), rear- and front-facing cameras, and a 4-inch contoured screen.

“It’s great news that our customers will very soon be able to get Google’s Nexus S direct through our stores,” says Patrick Chomet, Vodafone’s group director of terminals. “We work closely with our partners across the industry to offer our customers a leading smartphone range that includes the latest innovations in product and user experience.”

Vodafone will range the Nexus S through Vodafone stores and partner market stores in 24 countries around the world.
