Nexus 4 Australia: Aussies Might Go for the $496 Deal
By Arlene Paredes | February 1, 2013 3:05 PM EST
Nexus 4 is gone again in Australia after only days of being available. Both the 8GB and 16GB variants of the Google flagship smartphone has just returned to Google Play site, but now buyers are doused with cold water again.
Nexus 4 just returned to "available" status in the U.S. followed by Canada, Germany, the UK, France, Spain, and Australia Google Play sites. But way too soon, interested Aussies faced the annoying will "ship soon" status again. Is this a continued case of market demand projection flaw? You would think the months of anticipation from buyers would have reached the Google sales and marketing radar more clearly. Then again, some buyers could be getting more than one unit so they could sell, too.
Aussies could only hope that Nexus 4 white variant could appear in stock soon, if only as a treat to white gadget consumers who have been patiently for the budget-friendly mobile device.
At Harvey Norman, Aussies can get the black Nexus 4 16GB model for $496 off-contract. The stock availability status says, "Available from 1 February 2013." An Optus phone plan is also available from the store for a base price of $35 per month.
Nexus 4, which runs on the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean mobile OS, is sought-after for its attractive price-to-specs value. It is fueled by Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro 1.50GHz Quad-Core processor and 2GB RAM. Savvy Android users will enjoy a lot of control over Nexus 4's processes while non-techie users will find its 4.7" true IPS 1280 x 768 resolution display stunning. An 8MP camera also adds to the LG phone's attraction. Nexus 4 is also NFC-enabled, which blends with the rise in NFC technology awareness in the country.
