Google Nexus 4 to be available from 'select' T-Mobile stores on Wednesday
If you missed out on buying the Google Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store after Tuesday's quick sell out, you might get another chance Wednesday morning as a 'select' number of T-Mobile stores will be offering the device. The 16GB model will cost you $199.99 with a signed two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate with the Classic plan. The off-contract price of $499.99 is $150 more than the unsubsidized version of the same phone sold in the Google Play Store. Since T-Mobile won't reveal which stores will be offering the Google Nexus 4 later this morning, check the stores in your area by giving them a call.

If you were planning on going after the unsubsidized model from the Google Play Store, you can decide to bite the bullet and pay $150 more, or you can wait until supplies are replenished at the app store that used to be known as the Android Market. And we would suggest that if you are planning to purchase the phone at T-Mobile, you need to get to the store in the morning before it once again is too late. That is, assuming that the carrier has a store in your area with the phone.

Supply and demand; it's at such a high price because there are more people that want the phone than the stock of the phone itself. Simple economics. Or T-Mo. is trying to make a quick profit while the hype is at its peak.

If you don't know what your talking about you should keep your mouth shut. It's been known all along that the price of the phone would be higher if you bought it from T-Mobile than the Play Store. Buying it straight from Google cuts out the middle man and the higher price that comes along with it.

I would ask whose alt. account that is if I didn't already know. For the record, I always know what I'm talking about, whether you can comprehend/interpret it in the way I intended it to be or not are two entirely different things. ;)

It's astonishing how google of all people don't know how to sell a device. If they're trying to get me to be hyped for their damn product they got another thing coming,I wanted to get my dad a nexus 4 as a present but I'll simply show google the middle finger and get him the Note II . At least Samsung doesn't use cheap marketing tricks like google and apple to sell a device.

I applaud Tmobile for having the Lg Nexus 4 it proves exactly how Google feels about Tmobile. In June when I dumped Verizon for Tmobile and sold my crusty cdma Verizon Galaxy NexusiI thought I would get another Nexus device. But that won't happen I don't care for Lg that never will happen. Plus being a current Samsung Galaxy S3 owner on Tmobile I will be purchasing the Galaxy Note 2 Thursday morning. So I currently have and will be getting something the Lg Nexus 4 couldn't touch with a ten foot pole in the Galaxy Note 2..

@Richard You may be correct, but tell me something. During your tenured with Verizon, how many times have the circuits were busy and/or inability to use data? With Tmobile every week is something. As I typed, all voice connections are down, luckily data working. Incidentally, found their signals to have a hard time penetrating buildings, especially brick construction. Don't live in a rural area, in fact I'm an hour away from you in CT.
