Good news and bad news folks. The good news is that the Nexus 4 has finally launched on Canadian carrier Fido! Bad news is that those interested in purchasing the device will not be able to due to Fido being out of stock.
Fido earlier announced that the Nexus 4 would become available “early February”. While it’s not currently available to purchase, Fido mentioned this on its website: “Please note that order fulfillment for the Nexus 4 device will start on February 5th, 2013.”
The Nexus 4 on Fido normally costs $100 on a new two year contract with the carrier or $425 for purchasing the device outright. If you’re willing to wait a little while longer though, LG previous claimed that stock issues in the Google Play Store should be resolved by mid February. This is because the company claimed to be increasing Nexus 4 production.
In other words, the Nexus 4 should be available for everyone to purchase from the Google Play Store soon. After all, it is cheaper than purchasing the device from a carrier! Pricing from carriers have been outrageous, but Fido’s Nexus 4 is much cheaper than WIND and Videotron’s.
Will you be getting a Nexus 4 on Fido when the device becomes available again or will you be waiting for the Google Play Store to see more stock?
