DISASSEMBLED: The Google Nexus S Bares All

Christmas is in eight days, so it's likely your loved ones have already bought the gifts you're going to receive on December 25. Sadly, that likely means you haven't gotten the Nexus S from someone. You'll open the portable fondue set you got from Aunt Maud and think, "Why me?" for the umpteenth year in a row.

Chin up, though! There's a Nexus S teardown from the lovely folks over at iFixit and they’ve provided lots of tasty pictures for us to drool over. Sure, it's only a single core CPU and that's sooo 2010, but hey, it is still 2010. Besides, until manufacturers actually start giving release dates for dual-core phones in the U.S., single core is all we've got.

Check out iFixit for a full gallery and a step-by-step guide on how to take apart your own Nexus S.

    I still have to give Google props for the curved glass screen. Simple but effective (much better than making the back stick out on one side like on my Sony Ericsson w580i)

    It's not about owning one already, It's about marvelling at it being disassembled.
