Want a Nexus S this Thursday? Yeah, well, welcome to the club, pal — you’re not alone, so you’re going to want to be armed with the right information to figure out your plan of attack. Best Buy has announced the details of how it’ll go about selling Samsung’s Google-branded monster, and unlike many recent launches, this one is strictly first-come, first-serve — none of that craziness where you put down $ 50 in advance to secure your place and get it off the price of the phone on launch day. All stores will be opening at 8AM local time (which is just the normal open time during the holiday season, actually), and online sales will commence at 8AM Eastern Time to coincide with the phone’s retail launch on the east coast. You’ll be limited to two phones per person — sorry, eBay scalpers — and you might want to call ahead or make friends with an employee in the next day or two, because inventory will vary from store to store. What won’t vary, though, is demo unit availability: every store that’s selling the phone will have a live demo unit to play with while you make your decision. As a refresher, you’re looking at $ 199 on contract, $ 249.99 with an add-a-line activation, or $ 529 contract-free; follow the break for the full press release.
