Sprint makes Nexus S 4G available today for $199 with 2-year pact
If you are a fan of the clean look and feel of stock Android, you might want to take a leisurely Sunday afternoon drive to pick up the Nexus S 4G, just launched today by Sprint. With Android 2.3.4 installed, the Nexus S features the latest build of Google's open source OS.

Manufactured by Samsung, the Nexus S is offered by the carrier for $199.99 with a signed 2-year contract. Off contract, the device will run $549. Of course, if you shop around, you might be able to find a bargain. Best Buy has a $149.99 contract price on the handset, for example.

The Nexus S features a 4 inch Super AMOLED screen that is curved to provide optimal viewing angles for the user. Under the hood is a 1GHz Hummingbird processor and the phone has a 5MP camera on back and a VGA front-facing shooter. The model comes NFC enabled and features 512MB of RAM.

For some, the main draw is what the Nexus S doesn't have. You won't find Touch Wiz here, which means that you get the clean Google experience that puts the handset first in line for the Ice Cream Sandwich update.
