Want to know more about this Thursday's Samsung Nexus S launch? Well, Best Buy isn't going to leave you hanging. Earlier today, the company dropped a few more tidbits of information regarding the exclusive launch of the Samsung Nexus S. The details are as follows:

  • Stores will open at 8 a.m. local time
  • Online sales nationwide start at 8 a.m. Eastern time.
  • There's a limit of two phones per customer. 
  • Demo phones will be on hand.
  • The Nexus S is unlocked and runs Android 2.3.
  • Off-contract price is $529, plus tax.
  • On-contract price is $199 with a two-year T-Mobile contract.

For those wondering, no word yet on whether or not the T-Mobile Even More Plus plan applies here, but I am betting it does not. That means that probably the only way you can get this device is either for $199 on contract or $529 unlocked. Oh, and remember that this device is not covered by the T-Mobile Premium Handset Protection Insurance, just like the Nexus One.

Will you be heading to your local Best Buy this Thursday?

    ummm, no, not even a chance

      It's still a great phone at a great price. I would buy it just for the fact that it's managed by Google, and I'll be the first to get new operating system versions. It has a few downsides, but nothing too major (HSPA+ probably being the biggest).

      It's going to confuse the hell out of consumers though, when they see it next to the Vibrant. Who would buy a Vibrant now? Oh, and it's exclusive to Best Buy and won't even be found in T-Mo's own stores. So those who come to T-Mo stores will be confused that it's not there and those who will come to Best Buy will be confused by the Vibrant next to Nexus S.
