Sprint lowers the price of the Google Nexus S 4G to $100 on-contract
However, if you’re a customer who would rather prefer to get the best of both worlds with a powerful handset at a great price, then you should look no further than at the Google Nexus S 4G right now – that’s because it recently received a price drop. Specifically, the NFC equipped smartphone is now selling for the awesome price of $99.99 with your signature on a 2-year agreement. Yes, you heard that right, this Google branded smartphone is selling under the $100 mark!
Impressive to say the least, this new pricing should pucker up some eyes considering that this is one of those handsets that will constantly receive updates for the latest version of the platform before most others. Not only that, but there is still plenty to love with this one – like its contoured display, 4G WiMAX connectivity, and speedy processor. So what are you waiting for?!

and when those come out, more powerful phones will be announced by then, why not wait for those? Technology always improves, you gotta buy in at some point so you arent left in the dust.

I SERIOUSLY doubt that when the Nexus Prime comes out that any phone for several months will beat it. It has been an ongoing super phone project for a while now. Nobody knows the specs yet but it could be quad core for all we know running on Ice Cream Sandwich. The SGS2 is the best for now but once the Prime comes out, it'll be #2, which is okay because it would be #1 for almost a year. Being #1 for almost a year is a near impossible feat to accomplish.

for people that dont want the latest and greatest, this for hundred dollars is a steal considereing it will get ice cream sandwich once it comes out.

Couldn't have said it any better. You are 100% correct. You can't get a better phone for that amount of money!

i mean that is debatable considering the EVO is the same price point. however, this phone is amazing for the price. pure google, NFC, and a great display. its nice to have a great selection to choose from. Keep the good news coming Sprint!

I had the HTC Evo 4G & this phone kills it. I can admit that with no problem. My HTC Evo 3D will eat the Nexus S any time. So again for the money please get the Nexus S. The HTC Evo 4G's time is up!

evo had its issues like the white dots on the screen and the notorious charge port. all the nexus had was bad 4g signal but they fixed that issue. all in all i would get the nexus over the evo 4g anyday.

You got that right! The Nexus S is a FAR superior phone to the HTC Evo 4G!.

Yes you can. It's called the Atrix for $30 on amazon. Or even this phone for $50 on amazon.

Dude this is Sprint we are talking about. How can you get the $30.00 Motorola Atrix to work on Sprint? GSM & CDMA are NOT the same.
rupst I am sorry, but you FAIL! lol

Your statement didn't specify carrier. Heck the Evo 4G is a far better phone and it is free from amazon. So your statement is still false.

this article is about sprint he didnt have to specify it.

The prime wont have quad core. The tablets will get quads before phones. Plus there are only a handful of apps that support dual core at this point and most of those are exclusively for tegra 2. Single core phones especially the nexus s 4g are still very viable in todays market.
