Why I don’t care about the Google Nexus S

The Google Nexus S. Search for it and you’ll find over a million web pages talking about it.

But I don’t care about the Google Nexus S. Or the Nexus Two or the Samsung i9020 or whatever else you call it. Quite frankly, it’s not any use to me. My rapidly-aging HTC TyTn II has more features than the Nexus S. It has a better operating system than the Nexus S. And it’s faster than the Nexus S.

I can say all that with confidence because the Google Nexus S doesn’t exist. Not as an Android-powered consumer smartphone. Not today.

Tomorrow, of course, all bets may well be off. Eric Schmidt may announce it officially, rather than waving it around in a blur. The storefront at google.com/phone may have a new product. But not yet.

As you can possibly tell, all this online speculation has started to irritate me. It’s not that I don’t like a bit of rumour. It’s just that... well... after weeks of yet another ‘spy shot’ and yet another possible list of specifications, no-one’s really any closer to the truth.

So let’s not get too excited before the party, shall we? Otherwise, as my mum would have said when I was a child, we’ll be too tired to enjoy it.
