Nexus Two: Samsung Galaxy S owners Angry? – Forced to Upgrade?

We’re sure you’ve heard the big news this week that the Google Nexus Two smartphone is on the way and that it is being manufactured by Samsung, rather than HTC who built the original Nexus One.

However, one worrying aspect of the upcoming device, is that the Nexus Two is meant to be similar in appearance to the Samsung Galaxy S, which is still considered to be a relatively new handset in some parts of the world.

If you are a Galaxy S owner, it may be particularly worrying for you to hear that Samsung are bringing out the Nexus Two, as if it happens, you can bet that the company will throw all their weight behind the Nexus Two in making sure that it can beat off competition from the likes of Motorola’s Droid devices and Apple’s upcoming iPhone 5.

Don’t forget that most Galaxy S owners (Scandinavian users aside) are yet to receive the official update to Android 2.2 Froyo, and we’d hate to think that the delay is due to Samsung focusing their efforts on the Google Nexus Two. If reports are true about the handset, then Samsung must be delighted to pick up the project after HTC, especially considering how popular the Nexus One was.

So it all comes down to a few vital questions. Are Samsung Galaxy S owners angry at the prospect of spending more money on what is essentially an upgraded version of the Samsung Galaxy S? At least you are guaranteed that it won’t be coming with Android 2.1 out of the box.

Give us your thoughts on this one.
