If you missed your chance to grab the Nexus 4 as it launched on Google’s Play Store website, direct from T-Mobile might be your chance as they begin sales of the newest Nexus device this morning. The 16GB model is available through $199.99 on T-Mobile.com as well as “select” retail stores. Inventory is expected to run out fast so we’d suggest phoning your nearest stores to make sure they have the device in stock. As a Nexus device, you’ll be among the first to receive Android updates from Google which makes the appeal of a Nexus device incredibly hard to resist.
Early reports show “out of stock” notifications for upgrading customers, but “in stock” reports for new lines and activations. Hopefully this isn’t a repeat of the Galaxy Note II which saw T-Mobile appearing to hold inventory for new lines. Your best bet is likely a retail location in that case so start calling the minute they open!
As a quick reminder:
- $199.99 down payment, and 20 payments of $15
- $499.99 is the full retail price
- Also, the $199 on Classic is after a $50 MIR.
