UK mobile network Three will soon start selling the Nexus 4, assuming it can get any stock out of LG, with the network saying it’ll start taking orders for the hot new Android 4.2 phone for delivery from November 13th. Which, incidentally, is the same day TalkTalk says it’ll have stock.
Pricing is disappointing given the amazing direct from Google price, with Three selling the Nexus 4 on a PAYG basis for £399, or on its usual wide range of monthly contracts for the usual fees.
Might be a decent way to get one if you’re due an upgrade. Here’s confirmation:
Coming soon to Three – Google Nexus 4 by LG.
Today Three announces that from the 13th December, the Google Nexus 4 by LG will be available in all Three stores and online at www.three.co.uk.
Featuring a large 4.7” display, photos and videos on the Nexus 7 come to life in stunning clarity and crisp, natural colour and the gently curved glass edge design makes it comfortable to hold and allow fingers to glide easily on and off the screen.
The high-performance 8MP camera lets you take brilliant HDR photos of mixed-light scenes or shoot full HD 1080p movies and quickly share them with your friends and with an amazing Photo Sphere feature, snap pictures in every direction that then come together putting you right inside the scene.
Pre-loaded with the very latest version of Android, the cutting edge Nexus 4 features a fast quad-core processor making it easier to browse the web, enjoy gameplay and rich 3D graphics and effortlessly switch between multiple apps.
Sylvia Chind, Head of Devices at Three said, “The Nexus 4 has a beautiful design and impressive hardware specs so our customers will be able to truly enjoy all the benefits of the mobile internet with this new smartphone. It’s a great complement to our award winning network and it’s no coincidence that we were recently awarded ‘Best Network’* for the second year running at the 2012 uSwitch Mobile awards”.
The Nexus 4 will be available for £35 a month with an upfront cost of £29 on The One Plan which offers a fear-free mobile internet experience with a guarantee of no surprise out-of-bundle data charges.
The smartphone will also be available on Pay As You Go for £399.99 plus a top up. All in One 15 costs £15 and gives 30-day access to All-You-Can-Eat data along with 300 any-network minutes and 3,000 texts.
