Google advertised T-Mobile Nexus 4 sale before ell out
T-Mobile has sold out of the LG-made Nexus 4 smartphone from Google just a few hours after the announcement of a special sale on the device. Google today began advertising a special offer whereby T-Mobile customers could get the Nexus 4 for $199 with the activation of a two-year contract and a $50 mail-in rebate. A look at the product page for the T-Mobile Nexus 4 currently shows it as out of stock, though it is possible that the device may be in stock at T-Mobile's physical locations.
The Nexus 4 sports flagship smartphone internals -- including a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and 320ppi display -- but is priced much lower than comparable phones. The unlocked version of the smartphone sold out after 24 minutes when it debuted on Google's Play Store. The T-Mobile version is priced lower, but comes attached to a two-year contract. Nonetheless, the carrier's supply was exhausted within just hours of the sale's announcement.
