Google Play price far below prices of European retailer
Google may be subsidizing the cost of the Nexus 4 for its customers. While the Android smartphone is priced at $300 on the Google Play store, the same cannot be said for sales to retailers and networks. Phone House, Spanish mobile phone retailer and part of the Carphone Warehouse group claim that LG are selling them far higher.
Nokia sees early positive Windows Phone interest
A survey of European carrier stores has shown potentially promising demand for Nokia's Lumia 800. Its first Windows Phone is ranked at Vodafone UK and at KPN in the Netherlands as second for popularity only to the 16GB iPhone 4S, beating out every Android phone. At Phone House in France, the Lumia 800 is the top-selling phone of any kind where the iPhone is fifth, although feature phones like the Nokia C2-02 dilute its ranks.
