One of the ways Google is hoping that the Nexus 4 will be widely adopted is by pricing it extremely competitively, making it not only a more attractive alternative to the iPhone, but a great alternative to other Android handsets in the market as well, so we guess it’s a bit odd that if you were to surf on over to Google Play and attempted to purchase the Nexus 4, Google has instead put up a notice on the page where it informs customers that they will be able to get their hands on the Nexus 4 via T-Mobile for $199 on contract.
Now this isn’t really that big of a deal, especially since we’re sure that there are those who don’t mind buying phones on contract, but when the handset is priced at $349 off contract and unlocked via Google Play, purchasing it for $199 and being tied to a contract seems like a more “expensive” option. Given that the handset has been selling like hotcakes, we guess Google might not have enough stock and are redirecting customers to T-Mobile as an alternative. What do you guys think? Will you wait for Google to restock or are you willing to sign a contract with T-Mobile for the handset?
