If your search for the elusive Nexus 4 hasn’t proven fruitful, the official Google Nexus Twitter account tweeted only moments ago a new way for finding their latest flagship in your area: a brand new Nexus 4 store locator page.
That’s right, simply punch in your address or zipcode, and using the raw power of Google Maps, Google will show you the nearest location the Nexus 4 is currently available. There’s only 1 problem. It’s only pulling up a list of T-Mobile locations in your area. Call me crazy, but wouldn’t it be easier to just open Google Maps and type in “T-Mobile?” Also, even when a T-Mobile location is shown, you’ll still want to call the store ahead of time to make sure they have available stock.
So, as cool as this almost was, just don’t forget Nexuses are also available from Costco, Best Buy, and Walmart. I guess where the store locator proves a bit more useful is when using the dropdown menu to locate the Nexus 7, which will pull up a variety of retailers ranging from Gamestop to Staples. Nexus 4’s locations need to catch up.
