While those in the land down under can already purchase a Nexus 4 from the Play Store, like every other market, handsets are in decidedly short supply. However, LG is now saying that it will be shipping some devices to Harvey Norman, available starting February 1st. The catch? Buying one outright will cost you 496 AUD.
There is an alternative, though. "Select" HN stores will be offering the Nexus 4 with an Optus plan (see site here). Again, that's only an option in-store, beginning February 1st. The lowest tariff you'll be able to get away with without having to pay a handset repayment fee is the 60 AUD tier.
