Welcome to the forum Naufal happy to see you here
To answer your questions
The nexus S was made (built) by Samsung but it was branded by Google so its Google phone but the hardware is Samsung's.
I don't think so I think it is only in the US and UK.
That will depend on your carrier but you will not have to worry about 4G because the nexus S is only 3G.
Well this is all about speeds the more Gs the faster it is and well in the US there are some carriers calling there hspa+ networks which is like 3.5G, 4G networks. And I am not to familiar myself with what speed is considered how many Gs sorry.
Thx for the welcome

Unfortunately no, you will not be able to buy the phone in the UAE.
The google phone site only shows the price of the phone if you are in the available country.
When I got back to the UK for college, I bought and shipped the N1 over.
So u now have a Nexus S?
ughhhh... do you have any idea how i can get it?
You will have to do the same as fury you have to either go yourself into another country that has it available or get someone from another country to ship it to you.
And when fury said that is how he got it I think he meant the nexus one not the nexus S because correct me if I'm wrong but I don't think you have a nexus S fury am I right.

You could probably get one of ebay, but im not experienced with it, so im not sure how to go about determining quality and assurance etc.
Whatever you decide, it is almost certain that it will not be released in the UAE, however, if you do buy it overseas, make sure to buy the Unlocked version, one that is not tied to any carrier, or im pretty sure it will not work outside the US.
Well he was talking about the nexus S and all nexus phones are unlocked so there is no issue there. The other thing is if you go down the eBay rout you should have no problem getting a good working phone as long as you check seller feedback. The only other thing is that with eBay because of all those people like you trying to get a phone that is not available in their country you need to be prepared to pay big time.
Oh thx for the help
How many USD is added? from US/UK to UAE?
Your welcome and it all depends on the seller but when I got my nexus one on eBay (after they stopped selling them from Google’s online store) I had to pay 600USD so that gives you an idea it should be somewhere around that.
