AT&T finally gets its version of the Google Nexus S - going on sale July 24th

Actually, this AT&T optimized Nexus S is slated to land in Best Buy stores nationwide starting this weekend – July 24th. In terms of features, this Gingerbread powered smartphone doesn’t deviate from what we’ve been seeing with other versions of the handset as it retains things like its 4” Super AMOLED touchscreen, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, front-facing camera, Wi-Fi-, Bluetooth, and NFC support. Sadly though, it’s only being offered as a 3G enabled device, as opposed to the recent 4G offering with Sprint’s version.
If you can’t wait until Sunday to pick one up, you can sleep soundly knowing that pre-orders are available starting today – with its 2-year contract price set at $99.99. Needless to say, its pricing is rather fitting for its stature, and we’re sure that some people will no doubt still pick it up. So do you plan on buying one over some of the other offerings available with AT&T? Or is it just a little bit too late at this point?
- Display 4.0" 480 x 800 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 0.3 MP VGA front
- Processor Samsung Exynos 3, Single core, 1000 MHz
- Storage 16 GB
- Battery 1500 mAh(6.00h 3G talk time)

A good deal for a good smartphone but way to many other devices coming out soon to waste money on it but definitely a good deal.

yeah def will pick it up for free as soon as bestbuy drops it's real world price to free. it is only worth using an upgrade on, but only at a free price. at&t always waits till the last minute to do anything. they are full of themselves obviously. just wait until they ruin tmobile. i dream of those cingular days.

At the present rate of network buildouts - VERIZON 4G LTE may just pass SPRINT 4G and SPRINT has had 4G for quite a while. AT&T should have gone with the '4G' version, and the phone only has 512 MB RAM. Other than that, the phone is excellent.

Feel like I got screwed out of my Atrix yet again. Feel like breaking my phone right now and tell AT&T to give me the Nexus S.

Why would you trade the Atrix for this? Unless this phone has some seriously updated technology (meaning not just the same as the current Nexus S). The Atrix is far superior. The screen is better, it has more power, and the battery life is better on the atrix. I went to the at&t store to check out the atrix the other day and I was really impressed. I'm holding out to see how if this is going to be a Nexus S+ or just an outdated phone. The Atrix is the same price and is just better on every front. If you want it to have 2.3, just root it.
