The Google Nexus "S": Because Samsung Doesn't Like Being No. 2

With the Nexus S officially unveiled, the first reviews (including ours) have started to trickle in. The general opinion so far? This thing is pretty dang good.

One thing that seems to be catching most of us by surprise, however: the Nexus S… has no microSD slot, nor any other sort of expansion slot for that matter. microSD expandability has become a more-or-less standard feature on Android — so much so, in fact, that it’s one of the things Android proponents will bring up as an advantage over the iPhone whenever anyone makes the mistake of putting iPhone fans and Android fans in the same room.
