Best Buy exclusively offers AT&T's version of the Nexus S starting today
The Nexus S hits the so-called "sweet spot" with a 4 inch Super AMOLED display, and under the hood is a single-core 1GHz Hummingbird processor. While that might seem so 2010, it still gets the job done. A 5MP camera on the back captures video at 720p (30 fps) and there is a front-facing VGA camera on board. 512MB of RAM graces the handset which is NFC enabled. Best Buy is offering the Nexus S for $99.99 with a signed two year contract, and it is available only in Henry Ford's favorite color.
Yeah, there are many other Android handsets out there with higher-end specs, but if stock Android is your thing, you might want to give up a bit on the power side to get the Gingerbread OS in its purest form. And for those who were going to pay 6 large ones to get an unlocked model with AT&T's 3G frequencies on board., you can now pick up the subsidized version in exchange for one C note and a signature. Ah, isn't life grand?

Who in their right mind would shop at Best Buy?

Because it's cheaper to buy most contract phones at Best Buy than the carrier's retail store ...

And why not buy from somewhere that's far better, like Amazon? Oh wait, I forgot. Android fans think BB is good because they sell electronics. newegg is better.
