Considering the pace mobile technology progresses in nowadays and how most of the Android big kahunas need to unleash two or three flagship smartphones every year to stay relevant, most devices are either nixed before reaching the age of one, or they simply get lost in the crowd and are forgotten.
Not the Google/LG Nexus 4 though. Unveiled in October 2012 and launched one month later, the 4.7-incher is no longer among the cream of the Android crop, but it’s not an irrelevant gadget either. I could even go so far as to say it’s in the top five of most revolutionary devices in history.
Hence, what could my reaction be towards the N4’s latest price cut other than “you’ve got to be f-ing kidding me”? And no, we’re not dealing with a crappy 20 bucks discount, a promo offering, I don’t know, Google Play credit or including mail-in rebates.
Not even close. Instead, the US Google Play Store now has the 8 GB N4 up for grabs for an incredible $199 and the 16 GB variant for $249. That’s 100 full bucks off the previous pricing structure and, as always, there are no contractual strings attached or anything like that.
But the deal is not a US exclusive, so be sure to check out the Play Stores in Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, Korea and the UK also, where you can get the Nexus 4 for “25% off or more”. Jesus, they’re practically giving these things away and you’re still here reading my blabbing? Go on, get your own discounted N4 before it’s too late!
