Google Nexus 4 now back in stock on T-Mobile's websiteAlex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
Still in the hunt for a Nexus 4? You can snag one of your very own right now, as T-Mobile has restocked its website with units of Google's new Nexus smartphone, just as it said it would last week. T-Mobile's pricing for the 16GB Nexus 4 is set at $199.99 with a two-year contract and $50 mail-in rebate, while the full retail price for the N4 is set at $549.99. T-Mobile also notes that it's waiving the $35 activation fee on all devices purchased through Jan. 31.
To compare, Google's Play Store has priced the Nexus 4 at $299 for the 8GB model and $349 for the more capacious 16GB flavor. It's been pretty tough to buy a Nexus 4 from Google ever since the device's release in November 2012, though, with both versions selling out quickly on their launch date and then getting put on backorder when they were relisted in the Play Store later in November.
Fast-forward to today and both Nexus 4 models are currently sold out in the Play Store and have been for some time, and while Google CEO Larry Page recently said that fixing the company's Nexus supply issues is a "priority," it's not clear when the Play Store will actually be restocked. So if you're jonesing for a Nexus 4 and are willing to sign up for a two-year T-Mobile contract or pony up for Magenta's off-contract price, that "Add to Cart" button is waiting to be clicked at the link below.
