Google Nexus 4 on pre-order at a Russian retailer, priced at $660
Without a doubt, the Google Nexus 4 is in extremely short supply, even though its manufacturer, LG, is trying to convince us otherwise. After all, the Google Play store has been out of stock 99% of the time ever since the smartphone was announced. But that, apparently, won't stop the Nexus 4 from launching in one more market, albeit through a third-party retailer – Russia. 

Svyaznoy is currently accepting pre-orders for the Google Nexus 4 – the 16GB model, to be more specific. No release date is being given, but users who provide contact information will be notified as soon as the handset is in stock. The retailer has priced the Nexus 4 at a rather hefty $660, which is a little less than what a Samsung Galaxy S III costs over there, and about two thirds of the price of a new Apple iPhone 5.

In the meantime, only cricket sounds can be heard over at the Nexus 4 section in the Play store, be it in the U.S., Canada, Australia, or wherever Google is officially supposed to be selling the smartphone.  

Thanks for sending this in!

in my thinking, Google and LG fail in marketing Nexus 4 with very reasonable price, but customers cannot get one with this price ??? FAIL !!!

In Vietnam, official Nexus 4 costs 11.500.000VND (~560usd), comparing to Galaxy S3 (~600 USD), HTC one X+ (630USD) and Iphone 5 (700 USD)

not price competitive anymore haha !!

Not worth it at such price. As a result of this the price of Galaxy Nexus also have increased in India on ebay.

In Brazil the iPhone 5 costs + - 1100 USD (16GB) and people made giant lines to buy it in the day of release...

The SIII still is sold for something between 800 and 1000 USD.

If LG sell the Nexus 4 here for 600USD, the people will sleep in lines infront of the stores... Just like iPhone fans do.

In Indonesia we can have it for about $450-500 for preorders, while the normal price after preorder is about $550. all with no contract.
