If you’re one of the many that are excited about Google’s latest Android 4.2 Nexus smartphone, the quad-core LG Nexus 4, we have some good news. After the disaster and quick sell out of the Nexy on Google Play yesterday, some fans weren’t too excited on missing out. If you really want to save a few dollars, and sign a contract, T-Mobile has the 16GB model online and in-stores starting today.
Google’s popular new LG Nexus 4 went on sale yesterday, only to be completely sold out in about 24 minutes on the Google Play Store. The inventory seemed to trickle in and users were able to snag them throughout the day before it officially became “sold out” later in the evening. Today however you’ll get another chance, so long as you’re a T-Mobile customer.
T-Mobile is offering the 16GB Nexus 4, that Google’s selling for $349, on contract for just $199 online and in stores. If you’d like to give the new smartphone a try before you buy a local T-Mobile shop might be a good place to start. Or if you know you want it, you can start by heading here at T-Mobile.
For those that didn’t manage to snag one right from Google yesterday in the Play Store, this could be your only option at least for a few more days before Google gets more devices in stock. Sadly you can also buy it direct from T-Mobile for a mind shattering $499 — considering the exact same hardware is $349 from Google themselves. I’d suggest you buy it on contract, or just be patient and wait a few days for more to become available in the Google Play Store. Oh and the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10-inch is available today from T-Mobile too, for those interested.
Who purchased the Nexus 4 yesterday? Or will you be resorting to T-Mobile stores instead?
