In the market for a new smartphone? Then you may want to take the time tomorrow to mosey on over to your local Best Buy or Best Buy Mobile store, or just the Best Buy website if you prefer to do your moseying in your underwear, because the retailer just announced that August 17th is Free Phone Wednesday. That means that the Samsung Nexus S 4G, Motorola Atrix 4G, and Samsung Fascinate will all be available for the low price of free with a two-year contract. The offer is open to new contracts and upgrades, but it'll only be running tomorrow from 12:00 AM CDT through 11:59 PM CDT.
It's pretty exciting to see Best Buy offering up a trio of Android smartphones for no charge, but what makes the promo even better is that two of the three devices (Atrix 4G, Nexus S 4G) are still residing in our lists of top smartphones for their respective carriers. So who's going to Best Buy tomorrow to pick up a shiny new smartphone?
