Virgin Mobile version of the Google Nexus 4 priced at $359.99 by The Source?
Last week, Virgin Mobile Canada announced that it was selling the elusive Google Nexus 4 for $399. While that is an amazing price for the 16GB model with Android 4.2 on board, Canadian retailer The Source apparently will do even better. According to a document containing inventory information, The Source seemingly will sell the Virgin Mobile Canada model for $359.99 which is a mere $10.99 cents above the Google Play Store price.

Checking the retailer's web site, the phone is not yet listed and the product code on the inventory sheet does not yet appear on The Source's web site. We could play Devil's Advocate and say that the $359.99 is just a placeholder, or we could go ahead and tell you to expect The Source to sell the Google Nexus 4 for $359.99. You can believe what you want, hopefully we will have the facts for you soon.

Looks like I know what I'm getting my Dad on Father's Day. (If VM USA sells it).

Seriously? VM Canada runs on a GSM network. VM USA runs on CDMA... no chance.

Chances are, it's legit. Being a source employee, there is rarely mistakes in the POS system, though it does happen. We got a nice letter telling us not to buy or sell a 250gb Xbox for 3.24. I was crushed :(
