Google’s Nexus S goes on sale today at Best Buy stores across the US, with the retailer opening at 8am to cater for anticipated demand for the Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone. The Nexus S will be priced at at $529, or for $199 with a two-year T-Mobile agreement (and qualifying voice and data plan).
The Samsung-made smartphone has a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED touchscreen, 16GB of onboard storage and a 1GHz Hummingbird CPU. It’s worth noting that you won’t get AT&T 3G access with the handset, since it lacks the necessary bands. Best Buy is limiting sales to two devices per customer.
