O2 lists Nexus 4, subsidised options due November

UK network O2 has emerged as the first of the big providers to offer the new Nexus 4, with a holding page on the mobile company’s site claiming it’ll be offering the Nexus 4 from November. Which means if that incredible £239 unlocked price is still too steep for you, O2 ought to break that down a little and offer it for “free” on the usual range of monthly tariffs.

The lack of any numbers in the above sentence should tell you that O2 has not put any specific prices on the Nexus 4, with only “November” mentioned as the launch date for the new quad-core Android 4.2 device.

Some news sites are claiming O2 has bagged a one month exclusive when it comes to offering the Nexus 4 on subsidised network contracts, but we can’t find anything confirming that. But it might be true. Just so you know.

    yeah i think o2 is trying to catch the magic of when it had iphone exclusivity, though you cant really call it exclusivity when you can buy it from the play store.

    But, and its a big but; will it be a real (software control direct from Google) Nexus?

    Love the price, how is it so cheap? As someone else said: if there’s any 02 or LG software on there, you can forget it.

    Other sites are saying O2 will charge £36 per month. I’d argue that it’s not subsidised when the cost of the contract is more than the cost of the phone + sim only tariff + credit card interest payments.

      For the price CPW and O2 are charging for the N4 on a 2 year 1GB/month contract, I can buy the phone outright and fund my SIM-only deal for almost 4 years.
