Nexus S Reveals Amazing Android 2.3 Gingerbread CRT Power-Down

No questioning whether what The CEO "Eric Schmid"  had in his hands these days at the Web 2.0 summit showcasing Android 2.3 Gingerbread was in detail for Samsung Nexus S.

While the manufacturer's name was covered with a black tape, the brief display revealed a lot. For starters, it gave us a sneak peek of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, as well as the handset's carrier T-Mobile.

Eric Schmidt was clever to call the predecessor to the Google Nexus One an "unannounced phone". However thanks to the numerous leaks this week, audiences were well aware of what they were looking at.

Unfortunately we never got any hands-on time with the device but we were able to get close enough to spot a couple of details. For starters, the Samsung Nexus S is very thin, approximately as thin as the iPhone 4 if not thinner. It has a concave design, with the screen area being thinner than the edges. It also feature a glossy trim up front, volume buttons on the left and a plastic rear battery cover.

However the most awesome aspect of the device that caught our attention was not its form factor but the Android Gingerbread Operating System. 

As the CEO was about to walk off the stage, he clicked the power button on the top right corner, putting the Samsung Nexus S into standby mode. With it he revealed the cool new power down feature which resembles that of a CRT shutting off. To see what we mean, check out the video below.
