Samsung Nexus Two Smartphone To Go On T-Mobile First?

More rumours have emerged over the Samsung "Nexus Two" smartphone which is expected to be launched on the 8th of November.

Android and Me (opens in new tab) delivered another post that contains much speculation; T-Mobile will apparently be the first mobile phone operator across the pond to sell the Nexus Two; not a surprise given the fact that T-Mobile has been supporting Android since day one.

The rumours also point to the Nexus Two running on stock Android 2.3 AKA Gingerbread, a 1.2Ghz processor (we pray for a Dual Core Orion but we're likely to get a Hummingbird one instead), a 4-inch AMOLED display (just like the Samsung Galaxy S), a front facing camera, a 5-megapixel camera with AF and HD capture.

Other claimed specifications include 512MB, 16GB onboard storage, support for multiple carriers and an outer casing made of metal and plastic materials.

Furthermore, the phone will be sold unlocked and direct to the customers like the first Nexus; we expect it to go on sale via Carphone Warehouse (and possibly Best Buy) as revealed by City AM.

We've also noticed that traffic from Android OS 2.3 has started to appear on our Google Analytics from the 21st of October onwards.
