All Versions of the Samsung Nexus S are Free Tomorrow Through Best Buy

If you can’t handle the skins that phone manufacturers continue to put on top of Android and need something 100% stock and clean, then you may want to head into a Best Buy tomorrow and pick up a Samsung Nexus S.  All variants (3G version on T-Mobile or AT&T / 4G version on Sprint) will be free when you sign up for a new contract by either setting up a new line or upgrading a current handset.

While this device may not have dual-core this and that, it’s still one of the fastest and most stable devices you’ll ever use.  As a “Nexus” device, you won’t find another handset in the world with this pure of an Android experience.  When I first picked up a Nexus S back in April, I couldn’t even explain to anyone how refreshing it was to have a device that was left completely untouched.

Anyone tempted?  

One-Day Exclusive Offer: Best Buy Mobile Offers All Versions of Nexus S from Google for Free on Aug. 3

    The exhibit is  called "Picasso to Koons: Artist as
    Jeweler." You probably will 
    recognize the names of
    barbour
    jacket
    many of the more than one hundred artists  represented at the barbour
    jackets
    show. Names like
    Georges Braque, Max Ernst,  Alexander
    Calder and Salvador Dali, Robert Rauschenberg and Louise Nevelson and barbour
    uk.

      One hundred thirty of the rings, necklaces,
    barbour
    ladies
    and 
    brooches are from the collection of art expert Diane Venet. She helped
    to set  up the exhibit.

      Ms. Venet 
    met French sculptor Bernar Venet about twenty-six years ago. A short
    time  later, he gave her a piece of quilted
    jackets
    silver 
    designed as a ring. The ring celebrated the fact that they would soon be  married. Ms. Venet said it was the first
    piece of barbour
    quilted jackets
    an 
    artist’s jewelry she had ever had.

      As time 
    passed, Bernar Venet exchanged pieces with mens barbour
    jacket
    artist friends
    who sometimes created jewelry.  Ms.
    Venet’s personal collection grew and grew, and she decided to exhibit it  with works of barbour
    mens
    the other artists.

  • Peter Bartholomul

    theres no such thing as a free smartphone. it’s just not possible in 2011. you can only get the free phone if you sign up to a new contract which will require you to pay the new tiered data plan just to use the phone plus extra money to use the 4g hotspot. But if you are lucky enough to get grandfathered into the original deal by upgrading then you are still required to pay $30 a month plus extra money for the tiered data plan. Yes the phone may be free but you are still required to pay money. 

    • Anonymous

      Tmo and sprint Have unlimited data. And yes the phone is free the plan is not so yes in 2011 the phone is free the plan is an add on.

    My wife needs a new phone and we saw the Samsung Infuse and she liked it, then the Nexus S came to ATT and it’s most similar to our OG Droid’s but doesn’t even run on their “4g”.  She wanted to wait for the SGS2 but a free Nexus S is very tempting!

    A galaxyS III with quad core, and hd super amoled extravagant screen, no bloat, unlocked bootloader, a battery that can sustain such power efficiently, and on verizon’s 4g lte sounds magnificent to me. ϡ OH and most important released in the U.S. before the UK.
    oh and one more thing someone finding out their is a patent for patenting and apple eats up the rest of the apple.

      Probably should expect to wait 2 more years for that

            Probably but don’t peddle damn lies about outdated this and fail that in favor of vaporware devices just because you like unlocked bootloaders.

          • Anonymous

            While I know devices will get outdated every 6 months (if you buy launch day) it shouldn’t be any shorter than that unless an OEM puts out a turkey.  My problem with the Bionic is potentially within 4 months Moto and/or other OEMs will have a ICS, LTE, 720P display phone on the market.  That’s going to really make this device xoom to the back of the pack.

            I’m not saying not to buy Moto, or that the GS2 is a good buy (even with LTE), I think anyone who is happy with their phone would be a ‘fool’ not to wait 3 to 4 months for something dramatically better, not just a spec bump.  Had this phone been released in March or even April then my argument would obviously be invalid as it would just be the typical tech 6-month turnover.  But in fact what we have is essentially March’s phone with a processor swap.

            You and I will never see eye to eye on the locked bootloader issue and that’s fine. There are many that would agree with both of us. It’s simply a matter of whether you want unlocked compared with partially bypassed. Neither one of us is wrong….

            You know its OK for people to like phones Moto doesn’t make?  They are even allowed to not like Moto, even for no good reason.  I hope this doesn’t shatter your world but I think its time you learned the truth about opinions, especially ones in blog comments.  There are all equal and by that I mean equally worthless.

          How can the Bionic be a really good phone if no one can buy one? If you can’t put it in your hands, it’s just really good talk at best. While the Bionic might turn out to be a good phone, it might totally sucks as well. Until it’s available in the real world, it doesn’t exist so good or bad is meaningless. Might as well argue about which time machine is the best.

          • Anonymous

            The Bionic is basically a Droid 3 only better and the D3 is a good phone so barring any major bugs I think you can figure out the rest.  The Vigor and GS2 on Verizon might totally suck as well, the difference is we know a lot more about the Bionic than either of those two pieces of vaporware.

            Do you like asking questions like this? I certainly don’t? But I’ll continue? People have a right to expect excellence from a phone that was introduced in January and isn’t being released until September. From past Verizon LTE phones, battery life has been terrible. GS2 is not gauranteed to be 4G. While you’re downloading a 4 megabyte file in a second, I’ll wait 15 seconds and have my phone last throughout the day. There was no Verizon insult but you can keep trying, go ahead.

            Galaxy SII has been praised numorous of times for its performance, battery life, screen, etc. Bionic has been delayed lots of times for a reason. When a phone has been delayed a lot means one thing, battery life is gonna be HORRIBLE! Same thing happened with the Inc, Thunderbolt, and the Fascinate. In fact it’s the first time I heard of a Moto phone being delayed this much. Im sure its gonna be a great phone but being delayed more than once is never a good sign.
