T-Mobile's got the Nexus 4 back in stock, get it while it's hot (update: you're too late)

Just yesterday, the Nexus 4 was reported out of stock at T-Mobile. Now, T-Mobile is back in stock at the magenta carrier and available now.

Nexus 4
Just yesterday, the internet was abuzz that T-Mobile had sold out of the Nexus 4. It seems that the words “Nexus 4” and “in stock” haven’t been used in a sentence together recently unless separate by the word “isn’t”. Well, in a change of pace, T-Mobile turned those frowns upside down and the Nexus 4 is back in stock again.

You can find it on their web store here. The world’s most elusive handset on a website and in stock is a refreshing reprise from the gloomy trips to the products page of the Google Play Store. Google could learn a thing or two from T-Mobile.

It is worth mentioning that the T-Mobile demand probably doesn’t come close to what the Google Play Store. So it probably wasn’t as difficult for T-Mo to get the Nexus 4 back in stock. Plus, the T-Mobile version has a suggested retail of $550, which is quite a bit more than the Google Play price.

How long will the T-Mobile Nexus 4 stay in stock?

Since there are the factors of the higher price and the lesser amount of traffic, T-Mobile should have a better time of keeping the Nexus 4 in stock. Granted, it’ll probably go in out of stock pretty frequently in coming weeks. That’s just the Nexus 4 way, but the insane shipping issues and months of being out of stock probably won’t happen.

So who’s picking up a Nexus 4 today before it goes out of stock again?

It appears that within an hour after this was published, they went out of stock again. So apparently we’ve all begun a complicated on-again off-again in stock relationship with T-Mobile.
