Some feature phone users might argue that smartphones are still rather expensive, but just for those saying such bad and evil things I say REPENT! No, just kidding, but in all seriousness, Best Buy managed to put up a killed deal for the Samsung Nexus S. If you wish to get the device, which still boasts some seriously cool specs, make sure to head over to Best Buy and get it for the low price of $100 with a two year contract from T-Mobile.
The low price tag of $100 dollars with the two year contract for the Samsung Nexus S will however be only on up until the 23rd of March and those wishing to get it must be signed up for the Best Buy Reward Zone in order to get the deal.
Google’s Samsung Nexus S ( yeah, I know that it comes out a touch on the weird side ) is probably one of the best devices out there featuring Android 2.3 Gingerbread. This is mainly due to the fact that what you get is Android 2.3 Gingerbread. And that is it. There is no Motoblur killing your battery, there is no TouchWiz wanting to be friends with you or wishing you to share tweets with your mother ( no matter how nice she is ), just the good old fashion Android experience. For those thinking about getting one of these beats up, here’s a quick rundown of the specs:
Samsung’s Nexus S comes with a 4 inch WVGA Super AMOLED display, which does look great although there might be some issues with Android 2.3.3 update messing that a touch up. Powering it is the 1 GHz Hummingbird processor from Samsung and 512 MB of RAM. The Samsung Nexus S also comes with dual cameras, a 5 megapixel rear camera with LED flash and 720 x 480 recording at 30 frames per second ( yes folks, no HD here ) as well as a front facing VGA camera. Connectivity wise you’ll get all the standard perks of Bluetooth 2.1, Wi-Fi 802.11 b/g/n and 16 GB of on board storage ( no micro SD card slot available though ).
For those of you wondering about the Best Buy Reward Zone Program, it’s basically there to work as a form of mileage points received for credit cards and the membership is free. Besides, you can get free shipping as well as 45 day extended return period on your purchases. The only drawback of the deal would be the fact that you are stuck on T-Mobile for 2 years as the operator did receive rather bad ratings lately. Still, for $100 it’s worth a shot.
