Google’s Nexus S has gone on sale in Best Buy stores in the US this morning, with east coast locations just opening now at the earlier-than-normal time of 8am. The Samsung-made smartphone – currently the only official way to get your hands on Android 2.3 Gingerbread – is priced at $529, or $199 with a two-year T-Mobile agreement (and qualifying voice and data plan).

Your money gets you Samsung’s 1GHz Hummingbird CPU, a 4-inch WVGA Super AMOLED display and WiFi b/g/n, along with a 5-megapixel camera and front-facing video camera. More details in our unboxing and the full SlashGear review. So, who’s buying today?
