If you can’t handle the skins that phone manufacturers continue to put on top of Android and need something 100% stock and clean, then you may want to head into a Best Buy tomorrow and pick up a Samsung Nexus S. All variants (3G version on T-Mobile or AT&T / 4G version on Sprint) will be free when you sign up for a new contract by either setting up a new line or upgrading a current handset.
While this device may not have dual-core this and that, it’s still one of the fastest and most stable devices you’ll ever use. As a “Nexus” device, you won’t find another handset in the world with this pure of an Android experience. When I first picked up a Nexus S back in April, I couldn’t even explain to anyone how refreshing it was to have a device that was left completely untouched.
