Fast, good, or cheap. Most of the time products can only manage to nab two of those three qualities, but with the recent price cut from Sprint it looks like Google’s Nexus S 4G is pulling a hat trick. Fast? 4G WiMAX speeds — ‘nuf said. Good? The specs (which I’ll delve into below) speak for themselves. And cheap? Well, it’s tough to call a Benjamin “cheap” but at $99 on-contract, it’s still half the price that the Nexus S 4G launched with.

As for those promised specs: The Nexus S 4G’s most impressive feature would be its NFC chip, which puts the Google phone a step ahead of competitors as the shift to NFC ubiquity becomes more and more fast-paced. Other specs include a 1GHz processor under the hood, Android 2.3 Gingerbread running the show, a 4-inch 480×800 Super AMOLED contoured display, and a 5-megapixel shooter.

Of course, the only downside to this deal is that if you’re a true Nexus fan, you may want to hold out for the next model. Speculation suggests it’s already on its way, and may be called the Nexus Prime. Then again, speculation may be a bit flaky to pass up this deal. Your call.
