Well, that didn’t take long. Google slashed Nexus 4’s price to a breathtakingly delicious $200 less than a week back and effective a few hours ago the 8 GB phone is nowhere to be found in Big G’s US Play Store.
True, we can’t know for sure how many units were left when the promo was launched, but regardless of all that it’s impressive to see the enthusiasm of Android aficionados. After all, even if they bought like 10,000 units in these six short days, that’s still pretty darn impressive.
More so as you have to be fairly isolated from all things mobile to not know a Nexus 5 is in the works and likely to be uncovered before long, be it co-manufactured by Google alongside Motorola or in cahoots with LG.
And while we’re on the subject of the N5, let’s not forget to mention the 8 gigs flavor of the Nexus 4 is unlikely to make a Google Play comeback. Ever. That particular piece of information comes from officials of the search giant, so I’m afraid this is the end.
Meanwhile, the 16 GB variant can still be had through the Play Store, though naturally you have to pay a premium for it. Erm, okay, $249 might not exactly qualify for being called a premium, but it’s north of 200 bucks nevertheless. What say you, Nexus lovers, will you go for the 16 GB N4 now or for the predictably more expensive N5 when it lands?
