Best Buy dishing out free Nexus S for one day only, ball and chain included


Have you been looking to get your hands on a nice slice of Gingerbread without totally wrecking your wallet? If so... your time has come. Best Buy has announced that starting tonight (August 2nd) at 11 p.m. CST -- we'll assume they meant CDT, aka midnight Eastern -- it will begin offering the Google Nexus S for free (you read that right). Of course, you'll still have to chain yourself to a two-year agreement with AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile to cash in on this deal, but wait a day later and the price will certainly jump back up to a full Benjamin. So set your clock, and make sure you score one either in-store or online before 11:59 p.m. CST tomorrow. Check out the full details in the PR, just past the break.
