Sprint's Google Nexus S 4G is now selling for free with a contract
Inevitable to say the least, but it surely didn’t take long to find a respectable member of the Android family to finally see its price point being dipped into the levels of the super affordable spectrum.

Even though AT&T customers are just getting their first taste of it, Sprint’s Google Nexus S 4G is now selling for free with a 2-year contract through Best Buy – with Amazon selling it for a mere $0.01. For a device that’s expected to receive the latest and greatest updates, that’s an impressive mark to find the handset selling at. And even though it’s not packing the latest hardware, it’s still mightily impressive with its now perceived to be mid-range specs, but it's even more alluring since its price point is better than the $99.99 that AT&T’s version is selling for.

Come to think of it, the new pricing might cause some dilemma for customers, especially when we’re on the eve of finally seeing the Samsung Galaxy S II arriving stateside. Regardless, its pricing is indeed very aggressive and might prove to be the selling factor for some people.

Amazing that the Google Nexus S 4G is considered a "mid-range" phone. I love you technology. Free? Remember when all you got for free was a crappy flip phone?

You can't get a better phone for free. This phone will be the first to get Android Ice Cream Sandwich, & it is also 4G. This is a triple win 4G, Ice Cream Sandwich, & it’s FREE. People do yourself a favor & get this phone!

the 4g on this sprint nexus gets about 2.5 mbps , my Att Samsung focus gets 2.3 mbps. I'd rather get the nexus on att then sprint.

Yeah that is where you live. I get 8-10 Mbps on WiMAX 4G where I live!

I just picked up a Nexus S 4G for 250 off of Craigslist, but for free on contract, you can't ask for a better device. Buttery smooth performance, full Flash support, the latest updates, an amazing Super AMOLED screen, and tons of internal memory. It's fantastic! I'm jealous of anyone who is starting a new contract with Sprint soon. :P

Why Sprint is trying so hard? If their still mad at their merger there's nothing they can't do about it. And Besides I already have my Atrix would love a Nexus S on AT&T. Even though I don't have my unlimited data package so sad though. But I still get a good single every where I go. Don't really want to pay a extra 10$ fee for 4G on Sprint. And it's my opinion any way

Circuitsnthings- Great, Honest, Easy and Enjoyable Place to Shop I have been making my computer purchases from circuitsnthings.com. Everyone in the customer service is so helpful and nice. My shipments arrive as promised and in great condition. They keep their prices affordable for everyone. I have no clue why circuitsnthings.com has low ratings. I have made total purchases in circuitsnthings for only $3000, just digital cameras, camera accessories, iPod accessories and laptop accessories. At no time have I had trouble. Prompt delivery. If there was a problem, they informed me. No problem at all with the rebates. Whenever I go look for a good deal online, circuitsnthings is the first place I visit. The selections are huge and they sell them for a really good deal. And it is free shipping within USA. This saved me even more money. It is a good online store, I like it. I have enjoyed my shopping experiences with circuitsnthings and had nothing but good things to say. It is the world’s marketplace and I love being a part of it. Overall, I would order from this company again in a split second. I highly recommend this site circuitsnthings.com for online shopping.
