Nexus S coming to AT&T

The Nexus S is finally coming to a third carrier. After launching onT-Mobile, and later coming to Sprint, the Nexus S will finally be coming to AT&T this Sunday.

The AT&T Nexus S will make its way to Best Buy stores on July 25. The phone will cost $99 on a two-year contract, and can be preordered right now in store or at Best Buy Mobile’s website. Typically with Nexus phones there’s an option to buy it unlocked without a contract. There’s no mention of that here, but it would be great if there was such an option in the future. Even so, AT&T users finally have the option for a pure Android experience that should always be on the latest version of the OS. Well, at least until the next Nexus comes out.

The Nexus S for AT&T is just the same as the T-Mobile version, but with GSM bands that support the AT*T network. You’ll still get the same 1GHz CPU, 4-inch curved glass screen, and NFC. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like the Nexus S will support AT&T’s “4G” speeds, but at least it works on the network, right? But hey, you get Gingerbread, which is more than a lot of people can say about their Android phones, regardless of carrier.
