For all those folks still hoping to get their hands on Google and LG’s latest smartphone, the Nexus 4, we have some good news. You all know finding this device in stock has been nearly impossible for months, but now it looks like another purchase option is available. The big wigs at Best Buy have the LG Nexus 4 available now for the low low price of $199, from T-Mobile of course.
Yup, Best Buy is now offering the Nexus 4 both unlocked and from T-Mobile. The only part of this news that is worth detailing however is the T-Mobile bit. The reason being is Best Buy wants a ridiculous $599 to get this phone outright and unlocked, compared to the much cheaper price the Google Play Store is offering.
The difference here being Best Buy appears to have the smartphone in stock. How Google will let them sell it, and their own store not is beyond me — but I’m not complaining. The LG Nexus 4 can be purchased from Best Buy as we speak for $599 outright and unlocked, or for just $199 with a new 2-year contract on T-Mobile.
T-Mobile, when they have it in stock, are also offering it for $199 only after a $50 mail-in-rebate so technically Best Buy has the best deal around for the smartphone – so long as you’re on T-Mobile. I called my own local Best Buy and the rep didn’t have the slightest what I was talking about, so you might be better off heading down yourself or just getting it online at their website. We don’t know how many they have or how long this will last, but we suggest you get in while you can if you’re still interested in the Nexus 4.
