Based on the Galaxy S series of phones, the Nexus S will be available in the United States on December 16 from Best Buy and from Google online.

The Nexus S sports the following features:

* 4" Super AMOLED (480x800 WVGA resolution)
* 5MP rear camera with camera flash
* VGA front facing camera for video calls

* 16GB of internal iNAND storage
* NFC (Near Field Communication)
* Anti-fingerprint coating
* 1GHz ARM Cortex A8 Hummingbird CPU
* Quad band GSM 850/900/1800/1900
* Tri band UMTS/WCDMA/HSPA 900/1700/2100
* Wi-Fi b/g/n
The Nexus S is compatible with 3G networks all across Europe, Asia, and Oceania. However, in the United States, it is only compatible with T-Mobile's 3G network. It is also compatible with the 3G network of WIND Mobile in Canada.
More information on the Nexus S is available here.

Sprint has approved and released the Froyo upgrade for the Samsung Epic 4G, the Galaxy S phone. EDIT: Arrgh, turns out Sprint has NOT approved and released the official upgrade. It was only a test build that released via OTA to a select group of people. Here's the instructions on how to upgrade to Froyo.
Sprint has officially announced the Froyo upgrade for the Sprint Epic 4G will be pushed out on Feb 21.
05 October 2010 - 06:08 AMSkype has pushed out Skype for Android to the Android Market. Supposedly, it is available everywhere except for China and Japan. In the United States, Skype for Android is WiFi only, but in other countries, Skype for Android will run on 3G as well.
Hopefully someone will find a way to force it to run on 3G in the USA. Note that at this time it is broken for Galaxy S phones, and it won't work properly on phones that have a screen resolution lower than 320x480.
Here's the QR code for it:
