Google Nexus Two phone gets detailed

Rumours have a habit of developing quickly, but we're shocked by how quickly the Google Nexus Two has gone from wild rumour to cast iron reality.

At least, that's what it sounds like. Last week, we heard it was heading to Carphone Warehouse and nothing more. Now, more meat has been added to the bones by Android and Me, which claims to have the specification, the maker and the launch date.

According to the site, the Nexus Two (unlikely to be called that), will be made by Samsung and isn't a million miles away from the Galaxy S in looks. In terms of its inner workings, the phone will have Android 2.3 (Gingerbread) as its operating system and pack a 1.2 GHz processor 4-inch AMOLED display, a 5-megapixel camera with autofocus and HD video capture and a front-facing camera, as Android jumps on the video calling bandwagon. There's also 512MB RAM, 16GB internal storage, support for multiple carriers and the usual connectivity of Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and GPS.

The launch date is said to be either November 8th or 11th, at least in the US. But both tie in with the idea of the phone being in the UK before Christmas. If you are in the market for an Android phone, might be as well to hold fire for a short while - the Nexus Two could be something special.
