I know that are many of you out there that didn’t manage to get your hands on the Google Nexus 4 because Google Play’s servers cracked under the heavy load of Android smartphone enthusiasts drooling to purchase the affordable flagship smartphone.
If you are still considering purchasing the Nexus 4, we have good news for you, as the smartphone is back in stock, this time at T-Mobile. Of course, it will be available on contract and it will not be as cheap as the PlayStore model.
Nexus 4 is currently available for purchase with a two-year contract at a price of $199 via T-Mobile’s website. We are talking about the 16 GB Nexus 4, the model that is priced $350 in Google Play Store, without contract.
I remind you that Nexus 4 is the latest model belonging to the Nexus tribe, a smartphone co-developed by LG and Google, with a hardware platform underpinned by the Optimus G, the flagship smartphone manufactured by the South Korea-based company.
Nexus 4 is powered by a Snapdragon S4 Pro SoC developed by Qualcomm, based on four Krait cores clocked at 1.5 GHz and boasting a powerful Adreno 320 GPU. It also packs 2 GB of RAM and 8 or 16 GB of internal storage, but, unfortunately there’s no support for microSD card.
The device features an 8 megapixel camera with autofocus, LED flash, touch focus, geo-tagging, face detection, full HD video recording support and the new Photo Sphere feature, courtesy of Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, the latest version of Google’s mobile operating system that comes pre-loaded on the device.
In terms of connectivity Nexus 4 has WiFi Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, dual-band, DLNA, Wi-Fi hotspot, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC chip, microUSB 2.0 and DC-HSDPA, up to 42 Mbps.
The device follows the same design language introduced in 2011 by Samsung Galaxy Nexus, of course, with minor changes. The smartphone has a unibody design with Gorilla Glass protection both on the front and back panels, hiding a Li-Po 2,100 mAh battery.
Will you buy the Nexus 4 with a two-year agreement with T-Mobile, or will you wait until the flagship smartphone returns in Google Play Store?
