Everybody in the Android world is happy about latest Google flagship phone, LG Nexus 4 and the most favorite trait of the device is its pricing. The Nexus 4 has been priced at $300 (8GB) and $350 (16GB) thus the Android world has been praising it. Well, sadly our Spanish compa±eros don't feel the same way about it. Phone House - A Spanish retailer has just announced that they will not be selling the Nexus 4 because of some pricing issues with LG.
To be exact, the main problem here is that LG is selling the Nexus 4 for significantly higher price than Google's Play Store price. To give you an idea, LG is planning on pricing the Nexus 4 as high as â‚¬599 ($768) in Spain but fortunately, Spain is one of the few countries that can buy the device directly from Play store without having to worry about the price but other European countries are not so lucky which include Austria and Italy, namely do not have the privilege to buy devices directly from Play store. So, a blatant price increase is a BIG deal killer for Android fans in countries where Google isn't selling the device. Oh and by the way below is the Official statement by Phone House regarding this issue - You may want to brush up your spanish before reading....just kidding, We've already used Google Translate for you.
Madrid, November 2, 2012
Phone House, the largest independent chain of telecommunications in Europe and Spain, it will release the new Google Nexus 4 and LG, whose launch was scheduled for November 13 in the catalog of this month
Phone House has decided to suspend the sale of this product after finding that the recommended retail price by LG of 599 â‚¬ and conditions offered for commercialization are worse than the MSRP published by Google on its website and does not maintain the commitment with customers and offer the lowest price guarantee that characterizes Phone House.
