New shipments of the Google Nexus 4 are on the way

We're not sure how many units are being shipped, and judging from the order date on the shipping confirmations, most of you who are waiting for the phone purchased it not too long after it first became available on the Google Play Store, where it sold out within a half hour of being cleared for sale. Speaking of the Google Play Store, the phone remains sold out, leaving T-Mobile as your only alternative to paying some multiple of the price on eBay.
If you do find the Google Nexus 4 at your local T-Mobile branch, you will have three options. You can lock yourself up for two years and pay $199 for the 16GB HSPA+ model of the phone, getting $50 of that back with a mail-in-rebate, or pay $499 for the unlocked version. The problem with the former is that you might not want to wear 2-year handcuffs, and the problem with the latter is that the price is $150 above the $349 charged for the exact same phone at the Play Store. So that brings us to the third option, which is waiting for inventory of the phone to be replenished. Remember, these aren't Milano cookies being punched out by magical elves in a tree house and we would assume that it might take some time to build up a decent stockpile of the Google Nexus 4 in the wake of this heavy demand. The question is, would you rather pay $150 more and have the phone in your hand now (assuming that you can even find a T-Mobile with the unit in stock), or wait for the Google Play Store to resume sales?

I just checked ebay for nexus 4 and... well I have no words to say... it seems it is pretty easy to get nexus 4 from ebay if you have at least 500eur. I really want one but there is no play store in my country and I refuse to pay extra 200eur to some greedy douche-bag. what's wrong with the world today... tell me...
