Nitpick: I think you mean Nexus S. It's similar to last year's Nexus
One with a couple of differences:

  - I miss the notification light in the trackball on the Nexus One,
now I have to turn my phone on to check for messages / chats / emails
 - The lack of a trackball makes it harder to select text & deal with
input fields
 - I don't notice the contour display at all
 - The Nexus S feels much lighter but the difference appears to only
be < 5gm. I put this down to better weight distribution.
- Nexus S comes with Google Maps 5.0 which uses vectors rather than maptiles.
- Nexus S has 16G of memory, but no option for a microSD card.
