Nexus S At Best Buy
August 3, 2011 by USA Post
The Nexus S is not available on Verizon Wireless, and is not sold in stores for AT & T. Best Buy seems to think that consumers in the store as the place for the activities of smartphones like the Nexus S
If you are eager to get their hands on an Android device and save some money, Wednesday is the day head to your nearest Best Buy – or shop at your website.
The retailer, which aims to be a major player in the retail channel for smartphones, is to give a smartphone Nexus S to all concerned to activate the device in the store (or order online) and in accordance with two-year voice and data plan with AT & T, T-Mobile or Sprint Nextel.
The answer seems to be heavy: When we called Best Buy, dedicated helpline Nexus S at noon ET, a recording warns of a wait of more than 20 minutes.
The smartphone, made by Samsung, is not available on Verizon Wireless’ flagship smartphone unlike the South Korean manufacturer, the S Galaxy, which has variants in the four major U.S. carriers.
The T-Mobile, GSM-compatible version of the Nexus S is also available without contract for 529 y.
Not on AT & T Stores
Best Buy and Samsung raised some eyebrows late last month when they stopped at the AT & T to offer the Nexus S for that company only in Best Buy stores. A spokesman for Samsung Telecommunications America said there was no plan for the nation’s second largest carrier selling the device directly, like T-Mobile and Sprint.
The Nexus S has a four-inch AMOLED-capable Super pinch to zoom and resolution of 480×800, a gyro sensor, a 1500 mAh lithium-ion promises 6.5 hours of talk time, a processor a gigahertz Hummingbird with multitasking, five front to back-megapixel and VGA cameras, video capture 720×480, 16 GB of storage, and a way of hot-spot for tying Wi-Fi. It is also able to make payments through the emerging technology of Near Field Communication.
The T-Mobile and AT & T versions run on 3G networks, but the issue has access to Sprint 4G WiMAX services.
The phone has been generally well received by critics, but PC Magazine said that Sprint’s version is slower than expected download speeds.
Reflection on sales?
The Nexus S was available in December T-Mobile, Sprint in May and last month by AT & T. Nexus The first device, manufactured by HTC for Google was a commercial disaster. The drawing seems to suggest that Best Buy is trying to stimulate interest in the device in a season of new phone releases, and polls show that a large part of the market by offering next Apple iPhone.
Butanlyst Gerry Purdy of Mobiletrax said he probably has more to do with getting consumers to think of Best Buy as a place to new phone activations not only in big-screen TVs and computers.
“It is a mechanism for sales diverted to the store instead of through the company,” said Purdy. “The product is sold outside the company, it is logical to think that it would promote that.”
