Nexus 4 back in stock, but with T-Mobile

by: Chris SmithNovember 27, 2012

In case your aching to buy your Nexus 4 smartphone, you should know that the device is back in stock. Unfortunately, it’s back in stock with T-Mobile, not the Google Play Store, which means that only some U.S. Android fans can purchase the handset right now.

Not everyone will want to get the Nexus 4 with a new two-year agreement with the carrier, especially considering its more than affordable unlocked price. But those of you that don’t mind inking a new deal with T-Mobile, can get the Nexus 4 for $199.99. And yes, we’re looking at the 16GB Nexus 4 version here, so at least you’re getting more storage for your buck.

As for Google, the company has just issued emails to some Nexus 4 early buyers telling them that their handsets are going to ship this week, and updated the Google Play Store Nexus 4 purchase policy to make sure customers don’t buy more than two units.

Is the Search giant getting ready for another round of sales? It certainly appears that way. In case you want to keep track on Nexus 4 availability, we have already showed you how to do it, via an app or a website.

    some observations..
    it look likes google is playing some smart marketing strategy here..
    1st) they sell a limited amount of nexus at low price and then it gets sold out.
    2nd) since its no more available for sale and also people want it more becoz of being nexus device.
    3rd) nexus is not back in stock with google but with other sellers like tmobile or daily deals etc etc.
    4th) these sellers are selling these nexus at high price then play store.
    5th) is google entitled to some profit these third party sellers are generating from nexus devices.
    if yes ( which is highly likely ) then that may be the reason nexus is not in stock with google unless they make up for the losses for the nexus they sold for low price or profit ( which is highly likely)
    5th) so non availability of nexus on play store is just a smart marketing strategy of google for covering losses or making profit by selling at high prices through third party sellers.
    in short they are shooting by keeping guns on other shoulders.

  • T- mobile only offers the Nexus 4 on a new contract or added line. Unfortunately for me and other current t-mobile customers they are not offering it with an upgrade.
