Hummingbird is 8 months old now. Samsung introduced it, and hasn't touched it since. The Nexus S is using the same old hardware the Galaxy S does.
Snapdragon is in it's second generation now, with phones like the Desire Z and HD using a SoC that is only 4 months old, and we've already seen the dual core 3rd gen.
Op asked which processor is better. That is clearly the Scorpion powering Snapdragon.
Notice how the Nexus One and the other snapdragon processors are still
If you aren't using your phone for gaming Snapdragon is still the clear winner.
