Today, those of you who missed out on the Google Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store, will have a shot at picking up the phone at T-Mobile for a price of $199.99 with a two-year contract with the Classic plan; the 16GB model will have a $50 mail-in-rebate, or you can pay $499.99 off contract...

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..

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.
