LG has been having trouble keeping up with demand for the Nexus 4, Google’s new flagship smartphone. It has been out of stock almost since its launch day, but a new shipment has come in.
This phone — the first with Android 4.2 — can now be ordered from T-Mobile. It sells for $200 with a two-year contract.
The Nexus 4 is also listed in Google Play. This version is sold unlocked starting at $300 without a contract… when it’s available. Currently, a note on the Google Play site says, “We are out of inventory. Please check back soon.” Many of those who pre-ordered this handset when it debuted two weeks ago were informed that they will get their unit in a few days.
