T-Mobile to sell unsubsidized 16GB Nexus 4 for $499 in US - read the full textT-Mobile has announced that they would be selling the 16GB Nexus 4 for $499 in the US, unsubsidized. That's rather high, as the phone costs only $349 on Google Play. The other option they offer you is the ability to purchase the phone for $199 but with a two-year contract, so any money saved...

You know what's realistic? That the phone is worth $349, cause that's what you can buy it for! So paying $150 more is not realistic, it's just stupid!

It's time that phones are sold at a realistic prices! If production costs $180, you shouldn't ask 3 times the production cost. That's just sucking the money out of our pockets. And we are tolerating! That's almost as stupid as all those Apple fanboys with their overpriced bs!

I have a feeling that Google will release 32GB Nexus 4 at the price of 16GB for the holidays (just as the Nexus 7). By then production should be in full speed and the time would be right.

A lot of crying on here. What does Google have to do with T-mobile buying all the phones and jacking up the price? And if you want the play store price why cant anyone want? out of all the people complaining and spreading wild opinions, how many actually want the phone?

i see a lot of comments and a lot of them are barely relevant to the article...

Great to see T-mobile giving another options, if you cant wait, pay and if you cant pay, wait.

those carriers have to stop treating their customers as stupid contract slaves... they think everyone has no brain.. 349 for a device is easy affordable and everyone knows they can get it from google and it's unlocked...

I got the 16gb and 8gb yesterday Thank God!
There's no such thing as a "subsidized" phone for the "rich countries". Google has a plan. They just priced it cheaper for the market/sales. It is just to show the profit margin for the phone makers.
