Poll: Free Nexus S Best Buy Mobile launched a promotion on Tuesday offering a free Samsung Nexus S phone when you activate a two-year contract with AT&T, Sprint, or T-Mobile. If you dawdled and didn't take advantage of the offer, you're in luck. The deal was originally set to expire at 1 p.m. Eastern on Wednesday, but Best Buy has extended it until Thursday at 1 a.m. Eastern.

To snap up your free Nexus S, visit Best Buy Mobile, either online or at one of its brick-and-mortar retail locations. The Nexus S runs on Android 2.3, Google's Gingerbread operating system. The phone features a 4-inch Super AMOLED display with a 1-GHz processor that supports 3D graphics. It also includes a VGA front-facing camera and 5-megapixel back-facing camera and support for near-field communication (NFC).

The device might be free, but is it worth signing away two years of your mobile life? PCMag gave four different ratings to the Nexus S, depending on the service provider. The $99 Sprint model was awarded three out of five stars because it has "noticeably slower" download speeds. Sprint, however, said last week that it's ironing out these problems and will begin rolling out updates to the device.

The $199.99 T-Mobile version of the Nexus S won four out of five stars. But PCMag's lead mobile analyst Sascha Segan argued that "average consumers can find even-better high-end smartphones."

Samsung's phone just launched on AT&T at the end of July for $99 with a two-year contract.
Do you plan to sign a new contract to nab a Nexus S for free? Or are you holding out for a different device? And does the price of a phone even matter to you? Let us know your thoughts in the comments.
