    Google dropped the price of the Nexus 4 by $100. You can grab the Nexus 4 8GB for $199. That's pretty insane price for a quality, pure Android unlocked device.

    That being said, I was planning on selling mine to upgrade to an HTC One or S4. That's me though, I'm never happy.

    I am hoping this is the prelude to the next Nexus device!

    Seems early for that. Now that Google owns Motorola, would a Nexus 5 cast a shadow over that product launch? I don't get the drop. It's not as if they need more people using Android and are they really that backlogged with inventory?

    I haven't looked today, but I'd be shocked if they weren't sold out today. It's stupid cheap for a very good phone. I've loved mine, although it's on eBay now. SGS4GE, here I come, well maybe.

    It does seem a bit early, however, I thought there was a new Nexus partner announced (I can't remember who) but do you think that they would leave the Moto X as the flagship/Nexus device for a year? I hope not, especially with the $500+ off retail price. I am due for an upgrade, however I will be buying at full retail price (so I don't lose my unlimited Verizon data), and would be torn between a Moto X and whatever the next Nexus is, assuming it would be on Verizon.....

    I think it would be wise to release a new Nexus phone, while Google does own Motorola, they don't 'control' (or at least thats what they tell you) them so they could technically get away with it.

    But hey, what do I know. I just like new things, BRING ME MOAR NEW THINGS!!11

    The timing of this is a bit odd. It wouldn't have anything to do with the new iPhone product announcement expected September 10, would it?

    I bit the bullet and bought, at the very least it's a good backup phone.

    GS4/iPhone5

    How does a Nexus 4 relate to a Galaxy Nexus? I'm way behind in understanding the marketing progression.

    Wonder to what extent is the price available internationally. Could be a means to taking the wind out from under the 5C.
