Just as previously announced, Best Buy has started selling the AT&T version of the Samsung-made Google Nexus S. This is the third carrier-specific adaptation of the Nexus S in the US, after the original (intended to work on T-Mobile and internationally), and then Sprint’s recently launched Nexus S 4G. AT&T’s Nexus S does 3G on that network, and can now be yours for just $99.99. That’s if you agree to a new two-year service agreement, of course.
The Nexus S won’t be available in AT&T stores and direct from the carrier online though, as it’s an exclusive to Best Buy. So if you want one, you’ll have to go there to order it.
It’s good to see Google put its second-generation Nexus device on as many carriers as possible, and at $99.99 this is a steal. Not necessarily for the hardware punch, but for the fact that it will (hopefully) always get new versions of the operating system first. So for those of you who care about these things and have AT&T as your carrier this is a great deal.
The Samsung Google Nexus S has a 1 GHz single-core processor, 512 MB of RAM, 16 GB of internal storage space, a 5 MP autofocus camera with video recording, a 4-inch 800×480 capacitive curved touchscreen, Bluetooth, Wi-Fi, GPS, and a 1500 mAh battery.
