Good news, AT&T users! Google and Samsung just announced that the Nexus S, which has already hit T-Mobile and Sprint, will be available in an AT&T-compatible version beginning July 24th. The handset will be available at Best Buy and Best Buy Mobile and will set you back $99.99 with a new two-year contract. For those of you that absolutely, positively need to be the first on your block with an AT&T Nexus S, pre-orders for the handset are being accepted right now on Best Buy's website as well as the retailer's brick and mortar locations.
Although we've kind of known that this move was coming for a while now, it's still pretty exciting to see AT&T's version of the Nexus S finally made official. It may not be the freshest Android smartphone around, but it's certainly the way to go for AT&T customers that have a hankering for vanilla Android. Anyone planning on picking one up?
