The Flood of Nexus S Leaks Continues

Hot on the heels of those Best Buy Mobile leaks and that picture Engadget managed to obtain is another leak from Best Buy, this one revealing that we can expect to see Nexus S store displays go up on November 14 (that's this Sunday for any of you without a desktop calendar).

Not only that but we've also got some specs for those of you who care about radio bands. Phandroid managed to get their hands on a screen cap that shows off some of the less interesting specs (such as GPS and a 5-megapixel camera resolution), but the most notable part of it all is that though EDGE/GPRS 850/900/1800/1900 and HSUPA 900/1700/2100 bands are supported (the latter capable of up to 5.76mbps in uplink and 7.2 in downlink speeds), there's no sign of HSPA+ support.  So, despite T-Mobile being more than ready to talk up the 4G speeds of HSPA+, Nexus S owners ain't going to be reaping the benefits of those next-generation speeds.

We also now know that the model name for the Nexus S is the Samsung GT-i9020. An FCC filing lists the FCC GT-i9020 as a smartphone with 802.11 b / g / n WiFi and AWS 3G. Also, before they were hastily removed, it seems pictures on Picasa previously labeled as having been shot with a Samsung GT-i9020 started showing up as images shot with a Nexus S.

One last thing: Here are some more (leaked, of course!) photos of a hands-on with GT-i9020/Nexus S.

Whew, that's a lot of Nexus S for one day! Now we're just waiting for Samsung to come out and actually confirm this thing.
