AT&T to get Samsung Nexus S July 24th

3 years ago 21

A Nexus device is everything an Android fan could ask for. The pure Google experience without any manufacturer modifications. The Samsung Nexus S is currently available to T-Mobile and Sprint users, but we certainly wish it would be on all carriers. We have been expecting to see the device on AT&T (that AT&T-friendly White Nexus S has shown up in other parts of the world). Turns out it was only a matter of time before AT&T got the Nexus S; Google just announced the phone will be available on the carrier starting July 24th (this Sunday).

Like the T-Mobile version, the AT&T Nexus S will be available via Best Buy. Some of us simply can’t wait, though. Want to make sure you’re getting one of these as soon as possible? Pre-sales start today, so head over to your local Best Buy and take care of business. Just in case some of you AT&T customers haven’t gone over them lately, here are the specs for the Nexus S:

Samsung Nexus S Specifications

  • Android 2.3 Gingerbread (Nexus devices always get updates first)
  • 1 Ghz Hummingbird single-core processor
  • 512 MB of RAM
  • 4-inch WVGA (480×800) Super AMOLED display
  • 5 MP rear-facing camera / VGA front-facing camera (640×480)
  • NFC Chip, Bluetooth 2.1+EDR, WiFi n/b/g, A-GPS

You probably already know the device. So, AT&T customers, if you want a Nexus S you now can have it. No more EDGE speeds for you! According to Google Mobile, you can pre-order this device at Best Buy stores or their site. (Please note:  I was not able to find the device on the site). Who’s getting one of these? And what’s going on, Verizon? You’re the only one left out!
