We know that T-Mobile is selling the Google Nexus 4 online for just $49.99
. We also know that this has made the carrier's stock of the phone start to run low. As a result you might need a back-up just in case the nation's fourth largest carrier is sold out of the device by the time you're ready to buy it. We would nominate Walmart. Walmart?
Yes, Walmart. The discounter is now selling the Google Nexus 4 for $148
with a signed two year pact. While that is almost $100 above T-Mobile's current sale price, that sale does expire on February 18th. At that point, the Walmart price becomes $51 cheaper than the T-Mobile price. If you're looking to buy the unit unshackled, the price rises to $550. Follow so far? The Google Nexus 4 will be available in about 1500 Walmart locations
If stock Android ain't your thing, perhaps 5.5 inch phablets are. Walmart is also offering the T-Mobile branded Samsung GALAXY Note II
in white for $278. That works out to $91 cheaper than T-Mobile's price
after the mail-in rebate. The sale price is good for new and current T-Mobile customers as long as a signature is affixed to that two year contract. Without the contract, the store will be willing to sell you the phone for $700.
So there it is. You now have a game plan for the Google Nexus 4. When you're ready to buy, you will order online for just $49.99 from T-Mobile. If that sale is over or there is no more of the phone in stock, it is off to Walmart you go to pay $148. And if the Samsung GALAXY Note II is the model for you, you can pick it up in white for $278, also from Walmart. And the great thing about buying either phone from Walmart is that you can also pick up those new socks you've been needing at the same time.
