Google Nexus S available at Best Buy starting 8AM this Thursday
As you probably already know, the Samsung-made Google Nexus S will be available in the US starting December 16 (this Thursday) as the world’s first Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone.
Best Buy – the only retailer that will offer the new Nexus Stateside – has provided more details on the handset’s launch.
Online sales will start at 8AM Eastern Time, while all Best Buy retail stores will sell the Nexus S starting 8AM local time on a first-come, first-served basis. Sales will be limited to 2 handsets per customer.
You’ll be able to get the Nexus S either with a T-Mobile contract agreement (for $199), or sans contract (for $529). In both cases, the device will be unlocked.
The Google Nexus S will also be launched in the UK on December 20. Starting early next year, the smartphone should be available in other markets, too – like Russia, where it will feature a Super LCD screen instead of a Super AMOLED one.
