Speaking of the Nexus 4, it looks like T-Mobile will begin carrying this elusive beast in all their retail stores starting this month. If you still haven’t managed to score a Nexus 4 from Google Play and don’t mind paying an extra $150, you might want to consider walking into your local T-Mobile store to see when they’ll have them in stock.
The Nexus 4 didn’t exactly have the smoothest launch and was riddled by server crashes, fluctuating stock, and just plain miscommunication. Despite all of these mishaps, the sales of this pure Google device continued to soar. Well, at least that’s what we were led to believe by the perpetual “Sold Out” notification and ever slipping shipping dates.
Today, Canonical threw us Android users a bit of a curve ball by announcing Ubuntu for phones. Ubuntu for phones is different than Ubuntu for Android in that it acts as a mobile OS on your phone as well as a desktop OS when docked. This is a bold move considering Canonical doesn’t seem to have the backing of any OEM or carrier, never mind a viable ecosystem to sustain such a move. Being able to launch Ubuntu when docking your Android device is one thing, but erasing Android from the equation entirely is, well… just another hobby for Neckbeards.
