O2 bags LG Nexus 4 exclusive for one month

O2 bags LG Nexus 4 exclusive for one monthWe heard yesterday that the Nokia Lumia 920 will be exclusive to EE and Phones 4u in the UK. Hey, we’re sure Nokia knows what it’s doing. Ahem.

In further exclusive news type stuff, we’re hearing that O2 will be the only UK network to offer the LG-built Nexus 4 for the first month.

The news comes as somewhat of a surprise, as last week’s Carphone Warehouse leak listed both O2 and Vodafone as Nexus 4 carriers. Poor Vodafone.

As a cheeky bonus, O2 will throw in an LG television for the first 100 customers snapping up an LG Nexus 4.

There’s also a slightly bizarre promotion inviting customers to scale the O2 Arena, in order to buy a Nexus 4 while looking out across London and freezing to death. The Telefonica-owned network did something similar with the iPhone 5.

The LG Nexus 4 initially disappointed readers when it was revealed that internal storage is limited to 8GB or 16GB with no microSD compatibility.

However, the LG Nexus 4 price softens the blow (and then some), as it’ll go for £239 or £279 with 8GB or 16GB storage respectively. That’s not too shabby for a 4.7in phone with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and Nexus branding.

@stelph it will becuase the phone is GSM so all uk networks are compatible unlocked, just no two year contract etc just sim only plans..

Not too shabby? Pfft

Surprising that Google have let o2 get exclusivity, even more reason to wait now so that's good.

Ah but you can't buy it or pre-order it, so they could change availability date. Though not convinced that will be the case.

Phone will be the same price, only difference is that you will be able to have payments split into 12 - 24 month.
I have not seen locked Nexus phones, but it's possible they do exist. From what I saw Nexuses are not carrier branded and do not have much of crapware installed on them and come unlocked even with contract. This might not be a case for LG phone.
