No Pre-Orders For Google Nexus S, Clarifies Best Buy

In case you didn’t know yet, Google is coming up with its new Nexus S Gingerbread phone next week. Starting December 16, customers in the United States will be able to purchase this new Android device from Best Buy stores across the country. Make that December 20 if you are in the UK.

Unfortunately, if you are looking for a way to pre-order a phone, you are out of luck. Best Buy has issued a fresh FAQ that clarifies that the phone will not be available on pre-orders and interested customers may get the phones only on launch day.

Will Best Buy be taking pre-orders for the Nexus S?
There will be no pre-orders on the Nexus S. Units will be distributed on a first-come-first-served basis on launch day. We will use a ticketing system much like we do on Black Friday to allocate inventory and keep the process organized.

There are a number of other details that Best Buy has offered on their FAQ. You can read them by clicking here.
