While everyone is focused on the general lack of availability of the Nexus 4 on the Google Play Store, we tend to forget that you can in fact buy this ‘pure Google’ phone by going the traditional route too. That is, getting it with a carrier contract – subsidized and all that.
Of course, the problem so far with this approach was that the price that T-Mobile is asking for the Nexus 4 with a two-year contract is so close to that with which you can buy the device unlocked from the Play Store that most people didn’t consider it to be worth it at all. Not in the long run, not short-term either.
But that changes today. Third party retailer LetsTalk is offering the LG Nexus 4 with a two-year T-Mobile contract for just $76.49. That’s after you apply the ‘TALK4TEN’ coupon code which subtracts $8.50 from the ‘normal’ price of $84.99. What’s even better is that right now the Nexus 4 is listed as being in stock, so if you act fast you might have it at your doorstep in a couple of days or so.
This is undoubtedly the cheapest we’ve seen the Nexus 4 so far, but you do have to remember that getting it this way will mean you’ll be stuck with a contract for the next two years. It’s your choice, obviously.
