Best Buy starts sales of the Google Nexus S on Dec 16, 8:00 am EST
Good news is that even if you haven't made up your mind about this phone, you could still go and check out the Gingerbread experience on a demo phone. The phone carries some of the Nexus One's freelance ideas and will not be locked. Price comes at $529 for no ties and $199 if you decide to get the Nexus S with a two-year T-Mobile contract.
The Nexus S will be the first phone with Android's newest 2.3 Gingerbread version and even if its hardware is nothing revolutionary with a 1GHz Cortex A8 Hummingbird processor, there is still a lot of excitement about the changes happening to Android.
