Best Buy: Free Nexus S phones with 2-year contract, one day only

Best Buy free Nexus S offer

Have you been eyeing the Nexus S smart phone? If so, today might be a good day to move on that.

All-day Wednesday Best Buy is giving away Nexus S phones to those who sign a two-year contract with either AT&T, Sprint or T-Mobile for the device at a Best Buy store or on Best Buy's website.

Normally, the Nexus S sells for $199.99 or $99.99 from Sprint.

The phone -- built by Samsung and featuring Gingerbread, the latest version of Google's Android OS for phones -- is essentially the same across the three carriers, except that the Sprint version of the Nexus S is a 4G handset, while AT&T's and T-Mobile's Nexus S runs on 3G networks.

All three versions of the phone come in a blacked-out colorway, feature a 4-inch screen, a 1GHz processor, front and rear cameras and 16GB of memory.

The deal ends online Thursday, and in-store when a Best Buy location closes.
