Ah, okay well that would skew the results somewhat... Interesting that it skews them in a manner that almost exactly replicates the Froyo cpu score improvements though.
In other positive news, the announced Nexus S hardware looks to be a Galaxy S, but with a few minor changes (NFC hardware, slightly different storage memory - 16 GB iNAND with no SD, missing FM radio, maybe a few other bits)
That means the Galaxy S is almost certainly going to get Gingerbread fairly quickly - possibly from the community, and should be very well positioned for future updates (The Nexus S will get Honeycomb for sure, and I'd guess probably at least one update after that, so we could be very well set indeed.)
It also means that Google are confident in the basic hardware platform and performance, so I expect we may see some good boosts when we get Gingerbread. They wouldn't release a new flagship phone and OS without doing some serious work on chip optimisation, and presumably making sure it performs better than the old Nexus in most (all?) categories.
I wonder what the effect of that different storage is, and whether it's a simple way to address the IO / RFS / lagfix issues that the Galaxy S has had.
