Today, wireless carrier T-Mobile is expected to make the new Nexus 4 smartphone available for its users, tough it seems that only a few select stores will be selling it.
Unlike Google, which started selling the device
yesterday at $349 contract-free, T-Mobile will ask $199.99 from users willing to grab the device with a two-year contract agreement.
The handset sports 16GB of internal memory and will be available at this price tag on the carrier’s Classic plan after a $50 mail-in rebate. Those who would like to grab it SIM-free will have to pay $499.99 for it.
Unfortunately, T-Mobile did not offer specific info on which stores will be selling the device as of now, though these details will be offered later this morning.
Nexus 4 has seen high demand when made available through the Google Play Store yesterday, and was sold out within minutes of availability.
However, given the higher price tag it will sport at T-Mobile, chances are that it won’t suffer the same fate today as well.
For those out of the loop, we should note that the latest Nexus smartphone out there was made official with a large 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 IPS touchscreen display, as well as with a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor packed inside.
Moreover, the handset sports 16GB of internal memory (though an 8GB model was also launched), as well as an 8-megapixel photo snapper on the back, with support for full HD video recording.
There is also a 1.3MP front camera for making video calls, 2GB of RAM for better performance levels, a 2,100mAh Li-Polymer battery, NFC, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth capabilities, wireless charging, and support for GSM/HSPA+ networks.
The new mobile phone was launched with Google’s Android 4.2 Jelly Bean
platform loaded on it, offering a series of appealing new features and enhancements when compared to the previous Android 4.1 OS flavor.
