Best Buy exclusively offers AT&T's version of the Nexus S starting today
For those AT&T customers longing for the pure Google experience, you no longer have to pay $600 for an unlocked version of the phone (unless you want it in white) as the carrier's version of the Nexus S is now available exclusively at Best Buy. Those expecting 4G connectivity are going to be disappointed. Unlike Sprint's version of the handset, the AT&T variant of the Nexus S is a 3G only device.

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?
