Virgin Mobile UK starts carrying the runaway Google Nexus 4
Virgin Mobile UK is the next in the short line of carriers which bagged the elusive Nexus 4 in their portfolio. You can have the handset for free on almost all tariffs, including the £31 a month Starter, which includes 200 minutes, 500 texts and half a gig of mobile Web for free.

The Nexus 4 has been like the runaway bride lately, being immediately sold out when it appears in stock, yet LG said everything with supply is fine, and they are making the handsets they planned for "without a hitch", so it's nice to see the phone is available here and there, be it with a carrier plan.

As if we need another carrier to suck the supply out of the manufacturers.

When google cant complete the supply for the demand that its creating on the google play store then i dont understand why it has to give the phones to these carriers as well.. the phone should first be easily available on the play store and when the demand drops there.. then it should make its way to the carriers... i dont know how this industry works.. but if i had a product which was selling tremendously directly without any middleman.. then i wouldnt want a middleman and would sell and make most of the profits myself..

I wonder how much the Nexus 4 will be worth in a year? Will be a killer phone off contract.
