Cheapest Nexus 4 8GB is Google exclusive

Written by Fuad Abazovic



At least in smaller markets


We have heard from a few phone and computer resellers that Google doesn’t necessarily want them to make money on inexpensive tablets and phones from the Nexus family.

We already saw it happen with the Nexus 7 tablet, and it turns out it is also happening with the Nexus 4 8GB. Retailers and e-tailers can only get the 16GB version and not the cheaper 8GB version. In the meantime The Nexus 7 16GB version replaced the 8GB version and even if you find it at e-tailers other than Google, it will cost some 50 euro more. It will practically sell for as much as the 32GB version, that currently sells for €249, so it is rather pointless.

Google also wants e-tailers to help it push the 3G version of Nexus 7 for €299 but once again, doesn’t want them to sell the much more attractive €199 Nexus 7 16GB.

The same approach applies to phones as Google lets e-tailer carry the 16GB version of Nexus 4 phone, but not the more affordable Nexus 4 8GB. This wasn’t such an issue during the Christmas season, as even Google could not get enough of these phones to meet demand, as it clearly underestimated the market’s hunger for an inexpensive high-end phone.
