LG Nexus 4

It’s safe to say that Google had a great day yesterday following the sold out launch of the Nexus 4 at the Play Store. The same can’t be said about customers who weren’t able to purchase the pure Google phone due to the overwhelming demand.

If you’re determined to get your hands on the Nexus 4 this week, there’s a good chance that you’ll be able to find one in your local T-Mobile stores today. The carrier has confirmed that it will be selling the handset in “select” stores” a day after the phone made its online sales debut.

Unfortunately, T-Mo hasn’t provided more details on which stores will carry the Nexus 4. It’s best to call your nearest T-Mobile branches before you leave the house if you don’t want to return home empty-handed.

T-Mobile is selling the 16GB Nexus 4 for $199 with a two-year service agreement. Interestingly, you can also get the phone off-contract for $499. The jacked up price boggles the mind, but it’s not totally unexpected. At least, the option is there for folks who don’t mind digging deep into their pocket.

On a more positive note, T-Mobile said that its Nexus 4 variant won’t come with any bloatware. You’ll also get future updates directly from Google, since it’s basically “the same device that customers can buy in the Google Play store”, according to the carrier’s spokesman.

Contemplating on whether to get the Nexus 4 from T-Mobile today?

    I can’t for someone to sue TMobile after parting with $499 for this phone and then finding out they could have paid Google $349 for the same bit of kit.

    Are TMobile insane or a some people this gullible ?

    Ya lets sue them, how bout we just punish ignorant people by letting them purchase the phone from tmobile at a higher price since this is a free market after all? People like you are the problem. They can charge whatever they damn feel like charging if you don’t like it don’t buy it, simple.
