Free phones to be sold on August 3
Best Buy has announced a promotion that will enable new or upgrade-eligible customers to purchase any Nexus S variants at no cost when the handsets are tied to contracts. The Best Buy Mobile sale is limited to Wednesday, August 3, and covers Nexus S models available through several carriers including AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile.
Although the promotion is only scheduled for one day, it marks an extremely short time-frame for the relatively new high-end Android device to be reduced in price. The device originally launched in December, however it just arrived at AT&T late last month.
The Android 2.3-based Nexus S features a four-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen, a front-facing camera for Google Talk video chat and NFC support.
