Best Buy Offering Free Nexus S with 2-Year Contract on August 3rd

Best Buy has dropped the price of Google’s flagship Android device to the low-low price of zero. The promotion is only good for the rest of the day (August 3rd, for those in westerly time zones), and customers must sign up for a 2-year contract on either Sprint, AT&T, or T-Mobile. The handset packs a powerful 1GHz processor and a lovely curved display, and since it is Google’s own flesh and blood, the Nexus S receives OTA software updates—without carrier bloat—in a timely fashion.

Both new customers or those eligible for an upgrade can take advantage of the offer through Best Buy’s online store or brick-and-mortar locations.
