Google launches Nexus store locator tool for finding retailers that sell Nexus 4 and Nexus 7Alex Wagner - Deputy Managing Editor, News Desk
While the Nexus 4 was pretty tough to come by in its first couple months of availability, that issue seems to have remedied itself ever since Google restocked its Play Store in late January. That's definitely good news, but it doesn't matter much for folks that would rather go the brick and mortar route. Enter the Nexus 4 store locator. Google today posted a page dedicated to showing you any retailers that sell the Nexus 4 within 50 miles of a location. Users only need to enter their address, and then they're presented with a map that shows all of the nearby stores that offer the new Nexus smartphone.
Many folks may prefer simply pointing their browser at Google's Play Store and having a Nexus 4 delivered to their doorstep, but this store locator is a good tool for folks that'd like to actually try out a Nexus 4 before dropping their hard-earned cash on one. It's also worth mentioning that it'd probably be wise for interested customers to check with a store to see how much stock they've got before actually moseying on down there with wallet in hand. The store locator tool also works with the Nexus 7, which is sold at stores such as GameStop, Staples and Walmart. Both store locator tools can be found at the respective links below.
