I’m sure there are many individuals who don’t mind purchasing the Nexus 4 on contract through T-Mobile.  If you are one of those people, then you will be particularly happy to learn that T-Mobile has the elusive Nexus 4 back in stock through its online store.  Some of the large T-Mobile brick-and-mortar retail stores will likely already have the Nexus 4 in stock.  However, now general T-Mobile users across the United States have the opportunity to purchase the Nexus 4.

In terms of pricing, the Google Nexus 4 on a two year contract is $199 after a $50 MIR.  Pricing on a two year contract is definitely fair for the Nexus 4, but a non-subsidized Nexus 4 through T-Mobile is $499.  Clearly, if you are fine with purchasing the Nexus 4 on a two year contract, the price works.  However, if you want to buy it off-contract, then you will be paying $150 over the Google Play listing price.

Hopefully, the fact that T-Mobile now has the Nexus 4 in its online store implies that Google will soon have enough inventory to begin selling again.
