I know we are all excited and full of new goals on how to acquire the newly released Nexus devices. Trust me, I am just excited as you are. One big thing that I"m sure many have noticed is that the Nexus lineup went straight to the Google Play store. Well, what about carriers? I hope that Google did this and did it with one thing in mind, to shame carriers for treating the Nexus devices so poorly! However, there is one carrier who was able to shine, and win the favor of the flagship company, and that carrier is T-Mobile. Congratulations, you as a company, should feel privileged that Google has allowed you to sell their prized technology, and I would hope that you use this advantage wisely.
It was revealed that T-Mobile will not only have the Nexus 7 with 3G, but they will also be carrying the LG Nexus 4. Again, what an awesome privilege! I did try to see if they had anything available on their website, but search turned up empty.
The Nexus 4 will priced at $199.99 with a two-year service contract on "qualifying voice and data plans." I have to admit my brain gears are starting to turn on this one. It has yet to be said whether T-Mobile will be carrying both the 8GB and 16 GB, but my thoughts are they will be going only with the 16 GB device.
The 3G Nexus 7 will be available on the Google Play store starting November 15, 2012 with T-Mobile services.
For those who may need a slight refresh here are the specs for the LG Nexus 4:
- 4.7 " Screen with 1280 x 768 pixel resolution
