Sprint offers Nexus S 4G, on contract, for $99.99

The Nexus S 4G was $200 on contract at launch.

Dropping the price of one of its best phones by $100, Sprint is now offering the Nexus S 4G for $99.99 on contract.

A pure Google phone, the Nexus S 4G runs Android 2.3 and Gingerbread, and features an NFC chip.

It also has a four-inch Super AMOLED screen that’s very sharp, a 1GHz processor and 16GB of memory.

But the icing on the cake, aside from the fact that the phone’s NFC chip means it supports Google Offers and Google Wallet, is that the Nexus S 4G gets the fastest system and feature updates from Google.

If you’re an Android fan who’s been on the fence, now is your time to pounce.
