Google advertising the Google Nexus S Android smartphone on Google homepage

4 August 2011 by
Google today has a small text link on the front page of their search engine page saying "Nexus S, a pure Google experience. Get it FREE today only".

Google Nexus S for free 

The advertisment link leads to the Google Nexus S info page which links further to the Best Buy Nexus S page. The Google phone is "free" with a 2-year activation. Available network operators for this deal is AT&T, Sprint and T-Mobile. Without the 2-year contract, the Nexus S is sold from $529 to $699 depending on the operator.

It is the first time we have seen an advertisement on the Google front page. Advertisement usually show up on the result pages. A link to the free Chrome browser was visible for some time, but the Nexus S is a hardware product for sale in stores. Seems like Google wants to increase the Android sales.

The Google Nexus S is a Android 2.3 Gingerbread smartphone manufactured by Samsung. It was launched in December last year and was the first model with the Gingerbread operating system.
