Whether for your established business, a startup, or if you just need an upgrade to your current smartphone, Google has announced a pretty significant price drop in the Nexus 4 line up. The updated pricing starts at $199 for the 8GB version and $249 for the 16GB version. This new pricing is obviously helping clear inventory for the latest Nexus device, however the Nexus 4 is still a great smartphone with a lot to offer in your day-to-day.
Now for those of you who don’t frequent the technology sites like myself you might be asking what’s the big deal? Well, this is a chance to have a very capable device that’s unlocked from carrier contracts, and it comes in at an out of pocket price point that’s equivalent to what you might pay at a carrier for a subsidized device that “locks” you into a two-year agreement. The Nexus 4 can only be used on AT&T and T-Mobile (in addition to any smaller carrier that uses the equivalent GSM bands).
Also, this device comes directly from Google and the Android operating system and updates come directly from Google, not the carrier. This is something I’ve personally appreciated since adopting these Nexus devices in my business and I don’t hide the fact that I enjoy using the latest technology.
Here’s another added bonus straight from Google and I have to really applaud them on this customer service effort. If you’ve purchased a Nexus 4 device on or after August 12th, 2013, then Google will refund you the $100 difference. Say what!? Now, you do have to request the refund from Google and the request needs to be made within 15 days of August 28th, 2013. Follow this link if you need to request a refund.
So are you in the market for a new smartphone, and if so, will you be owning a Nexus 4 device?
