T-Mobile Offering Nexus 4 Today, But Google Sells Out
The Google Nexus 4 Android smartphone will be available in select T-Mobile USA retail stores beginning today. T-Mobile is selling the 16GB model for $199.99 with a new contract or $499 off contract. The unlocked version of the Nexus 4 went on sale Tuesday through the Google Play Store in several countries. High demand crashed Google's servers. In response, Google said, "There's been so much interest for the Nexus lineup that we've sold out of some of our initial stock in a few countries! We are working hard to add more Nexus devices to Google Play in the coming weeks to keep up with the high demand." Google is selling the 8GB Nexus 4 for $299 and the 16GB nexus 4 for $349. T-Mobile USA is charging a $150 premium for the off-contract model. The Nexus 4 is made by LG.
