Someone dropped a little rum into this morning’s mug of warm apple cider and had some trouble holding the camera still. Regardless, today is all about being thankful, and we’re thankful to xda’s anonymous source for reaffirming the Nexus S’ imminent launch. Of course when Google’s CEO shows off an unreleased device while on stage at a conference, an announcement probably isn’t very far off. But you know the game — the higher the volume of leaks, the closer we are to launch. As a quick refresher, Google’s Nexus S will be the company’s sequel to what some might call the failed Nexus One experiment. It will reportedly feature a 4-inch Super-AMOLED display, dual cameras, Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), 720p video recording capability and support for NFC. Google is expected to make the Nexus S official before the end of the year, so we’re now looking at a five-week window. Google’s Nexus One set the standard for Android devices in 2010, so look for the Nexus S to do the same in 2011.
