Sprint drops price of Nexus S 4G phone to $99.99
Sprint has cut the price of the Nexus S 4G smartphone (with a two-year data plan) in half, down to $99.99.
The phone is the successor to the Nexus One, which was the built by HTC, and sold by Google itself and online only -- something the search giant has said it won't be doing again.
Both the Nexus S and its predecessor were designed to show off some of the best that Android, the world's most popular mobile operating system, has to offer.
As such, the Nexus S phones run on an unadulterated version of Android 2.3 Gingerbread, which is the most current version of the Google-built smartphone OS.
The sleek, blacked-out handset features a 4-inch screen, a 1GHz processor, front and rear cameras, 16GB of memory and near-field communication technology which works with the Mountain View-company's Google Wallet system allowing users to make purchases with their phone.
