Con's (vs N1)
- No SD card (dont be lazy and clean up your music collection so it fits 16 gbs on the Nexus S )
- No trackball (you can use NoLED app and get notifications, plus text selection is easy on gingerbread)
If people want to wait for the dual core's thats cool but when your comparing the Nexus S to the Nexus One there really isn't any comparison spec wise as long as your not lazy with your music collection and keep it tidy.

Yeah, I really feel the same way. The limit of internal storage is a big downside of nexus one and other Android phones. Although 2.2 supports AppToSD, it didn't solve the problem as some files and caches of applications are still installed in the ROM, which means the number of Apps is really limited even for Nexus One(only 150MB of ROM available for applications). Apps like Adobe Flash Player won't work if it is moved to SD card. 20MB+ space is used for Google Earth although it has been moved to SD card. And some other Google applications even can't been moved to SD card.

Google urgently needs to standardize the minimum requirement of build-in storage spaces for all the Android phones including low-end ones. Lets just say 4GB at least and 8GB will be a bonus. And then the expandable memory will come into a big plus compared to iPhone.
The one thing better about the N1 I is the glowing trackball when I have a notification. Other than that I have no use for the trackball. But, I can't stress enough just how much I've grown to love having my N1 notify me with a glowing trackball. It's too bad Samsung didn't include a trackpad that glowed or something similar.
The biggest Pro for the nexus s is that it provides the pure android experience sans manufacturer tinkerings
it comes with gingerbread out of the box
It can use the maps version that uses the integrated nfc chip
Cons it's not the nexus one
I can say I am looking forward to going to Best Buy and buying a Nexus S. My Nexus One's screen would constantly bleed it's colors thus the display was going on it.
