Just when we were praising the upcoming Samsung Conquer 4G as being Sprint’s most affordable 4G WiMax device ever, the carrier decided to cut the price of the Samsung-made Google Nexus S 4G even more. Sprint is now selling the ‘pure Google’ device for just $29.99 with a new two-year contract.
And the truth is that despite the slick hardware that’s gone into many of its recent competitors, the Nexus S is still a steal at that price. If only for the fact that you won’t have to beg for future software updates.
Anyway, Sprint’s is a good deal and that makes the Nexus S 4G now officially the cheapest 4G WiMax handset in the carrier’s portfolio. However, you should consider two things here. One is that Google may release a newer Nexus device before the end of this year. If you always crave the latest hardware, but also like your OS to be up to date, perhaps you should just wait for that.
Otherwise, if you’re after a Nexus S 4G, you may as well get it from either Best Buy or Amazon and save yourself an additional $30. That’s right, the Nexus S 4G is still free at both of the aforementioned retailers, just like it was last month. (Well, almost free, since Amazon still charges you a penny for it for some reason).
