Best Buy Lays Out Rules on Nexus S Retail Launch

Best Buy will begin selling the Nexus S smartphone on Thursday and it has already laid out its house rules for all the eager consumers. Unlike many recent launches, the Samsung-made, Google-branded phone will be sold on a first-come, first-serve basis. No more paying US$50 in advance for a guaranteed slot at the customer queue and get it off the price of the phone.

All stores will open at 8:00 a.m. local time, while online sales will begin at 8:00 a.m. EST. Retail will be limited to two phones per person, a step to avoid potential Nexus S scalpers on eBay, and inventory will vary from store to store.

Just to remind you, the Google Nexus S will be sold at $199 on contract, $249.99 with an add-a-line activation, or $529 contract-free.
