If you didn’t have much luck picking up the Nexus 4 direct from Google yesterday, you can now purchase the latest pure Google device from T-Mobile for $199. The phone is currently available online and in select stores and brings the same experience as the unlocked version, only it comes tied to a service agreement. That service agreement is something many were hoping to avoid by snagging the phone from the Play Store, but signing away two years to a carrier must sound pretty tempting right now to those not willing to wait a few extra weeks for Google’s stock to replenish.
The Android 4.2 flagship is joined by a Samsung tablet, but it’s not the Nexus 10. No, it’s T-Mobile’s branded version of the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1, which is also available today for a price of $399. The Ice Cream Sandwich slate features a 1.5GHz dual-core CPU and 1280×800 resolution display, specs that don’t touch the Nexus 10, which is available off-contract for the same price. You might want to explore options before signing the dotted line for this one.
