NUMERICAL MOBILE OPERATOR Three has revealed that it will soon be selling the Google Nexus 4, once O2's exclusivity ends.
Three has told The INQUIRER that it will start selling the Nexus 4 from 13 December. It has also revealed that that its pricing will be just as expensive as O2's, despite the handset's £239 SIM-free price on the Google Play store.
It will be available to buy for £399 on pay as you go from Three when bought with a £15 top up, the network said, or buyers can opt to sign up to a lengthy 24 month £35 contract complete with a £29 upfront cost.
Although expensive, this tariff does give the Nexus 4 2,000 any network minutes, 5,000 Three-to-Three minutes, 5,000 texts and unlimited data every month.
Buying the phone on Three will also offer access to the operator's DC-HSDPA 3G network, which Three CEO David Dyson claims offers speeds just as fast as those reached over a 4G connection.
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." µ
