Google's Nexus-S to have an LCD instead of a super-AMOLED display in some countries

Google announced that the Nexus S will be available in Russia in February 2011 - but with an LCD (super-clear LCD) instead of a Super-AMOLED. It's likely that they are doing this because of the shortage in AMOLED displays. Google will probably use Super-AMOLED in some countries (like the US) and LCD in others.

Both displays offer pretty much the same performance, but it seems that Super-AMOLED is still the display of choice for Samsung.

Don't play broken phone and go to the source please.

That original source (unwiredview) was repeated by samsunghub who was repeated by uberphones who was repeated by ubergizmo who was repeated here on oled-info.

It is fairly easy to check the source of each of those and avoid "broken phone" articles by finding the original source.
