According to two articles at Engadget, Best Buy Mobile first published a fairly small and inconspicuous advert that stated that the Nexus S was “Available only at Best Buy this holiday season,” with an option to pre-order. It has since been removed.
The second inkling also came from Best Buy, but this time rather than having a text-based advert that also advertised ‘Pure Google,’ they have a so-called image of a device that looks remarkably similar to that of what we now know as the Nexus Two or Nexus S (whichever you prefer).
The image, well, rather an “In Store” web-based flier looks like it is running stock Android (could be 2.3), and comes complete with a front facing camera.
Make of it what you will, but we seriously do hope that Samsung / Google / T-Mobile / Best Buy are serious about the next incarnation of the Nexus… even though we did get told it was not coming at all by a Google CEO.
