Sprint Nexus S 4G gets big discount alongside Google Wallet launch

Google Nexus S 4G Wallet NFC

Sprint has announced that its Nexus S 4G smartphone will now be $49.99 after rebate, the highlight of the company's Google Wallet launch.

Customers can visit Sprint.com and order the Nexus S 4G for $49.99 with a new two-year contract or upgrade, Sprint said in a press release, after a $50 American Express gift certificate. However, on the Web site Sprint is currently charging new customers $29.99 for the Nexus 4G, and makes no mention of the gift card.

It can be a bit difficult to tell how often a phone like the Nexus S is offered for free; Best Buy has offered the phone for free after rebate on two occasions, most recently in August. Last December, it launched at $199, or $599 unlocked.

We havn't reviewed the Sprint version of the Nexus S 4G, although it uses the same body as T-Mobile's version, which debuted last December. At 4.9 by 2.5 by 0.4 inches and 4.5 ounces, the Nexus S is a black slab phone that's noticeably smaller than the recent round of devices with 4.3-inch displays. The Nexus looks elegant because it uses more rounded corners and a black bezel, rather than cheaper-looking chromed plastic.

VIDEO: Jane Lynch Promotes Members Project

Posted by K.C. Morgan Categories: Comedy, Commercials, Video,


Somewhere in the midst of all the singing and drama on the second season premiere of Glee, appeared in full Sue Sylvester mode, via the new Members Project commercial from American Express.

Wearing her now-compulsory tracksuit, Lynch-as-Sue delivered fabulous one-liners like “What do animals do, except poop on your lawn and make you feel guilty about how delicious they are?” and “Sure, I’ll take a stand…for as long as it takes me to find a comfy chair.”

At the end of the ad spot, the image goes dark. The words “Don’t Be a Sue” encourage everyone to take part in the , and “do something good.”


Palin Rumored to Play Tina Fey on SNL

Tina Fey in American Express commercial

Although Palin only watched Tina Fey’s first parody with the volume down, rumor has it the Alaskan governor might soon be returning the favor.

According to the Chicago Sun-Times, the VP candidate may be looking to boost some poll numbers by spoofing her spoofer. The buzz is that will put her own spin on one of Fey’s humorous American Express commercials. (The above pic of Fey - coincidentally playing the flute - is from one of those spots.)

So when could this sketch possibly air? Well, it could happen as early as this Thursday. Prior to seeing the recent boost in ratings, the show’s producers had planned to air several Thursday night specials. The live 30-minute programs would get viewers geared up for the elections and help fill our needs while SNL was in reruns. (We won’t get a new Saturday night edition until October 18.)
