Remember earlier today when T-Mobile inexplicably cranked up the price of the LG Nexus 4 from $199 to a whopping $399 on-contract? Well, you don't have to worry about folks being gouged like that anymore. No, T-Mobile didn't realize how boneheaded that price was. It has just removed the Nexus 4 from the website entirely.
The device does not show up in the list of Android phones available from T-Mobile, but it does still appear in search results on the site. However, if you try to click on the listing for the N4, there is nothing there. The site redirects you to the other phones T-Mobile has on sale. This just keeps getting weirder.
It's possible that T-Mobile has simply run out of units and doesn't foresee getting anymore for some time. It also might have decided to stop selling the phone subsidized at all. Still another possibility is that T-Mobile is in the process of fixing that ridiculous $399 price tag, and that necessitated taking the device offline for some period of time. Well, that last one might be wishful thinking, but only time will tell.
Update: Hey, how about that? The Nexus 4 has reportedly started popping back up for those checking the T-Mobile site. Some folks, myself included, have been unable to get it to show up, but we have visual proof captured just now. Be patient – it appears to be showing up for more people as the servers populate.
