Google Unveils Nexus 4 Retail Store Locator, Only Works With T-Mobile Stores Right Now

If you’re still trying to hunt down a Nexus 4, perhaps Google’s new Retail Store locator will aid in your search. Google just unveiled the new Nexus 4 store locator tool via Twitter and it’s downright simple to use. Just type in your address and find a Nexus 4 retailer. There’s a catch however as the locator only identifies T-Mobile locations where you can pick up the Nexus 4. A second catch is that the store locator doesn’t provide info regarding inventory availability, you’ll still have to call ahead for that.

Our hope is that in the near future, Google will add Best Buy, Walmart, Costco and other third-party retailers that are currently selling the device. Well, Best Buy is only selling it online but the point is the same. Furthermore, we hope that Google ads other devices in the future such as the Nexus 7, which is also available at Staples, Office Depot and other third-party retailers.

So far, this looks to be a US only feature, but pretty nice if limited addition to the Nexus 4 hunt.

    All this is worthless since all these places require a contract…

      Worthless to you, maybe, but not necessarily to everyone else. Keep your opinions to yourself if you don’t have anything worthwhile to add to the conversation. I’ve been with T-Mobile for 9.5 years & I don’t plan on going anywhere anytime soon. What do I care if I sign another 2-year contract?

      • Drew

        LOL!! That always cracks me up when people say that. I’ve been with T-Mo for 8 yrs THIS MONTH and I don’t care about signing another 2-yr contract. Where am I going, Verizon?? Pfft..!!

        • g2a5b0e

          Ain’t that the truth.

        I’ve been with T-Mobile for about 4-5 years. I had a contract for 1 year, Switched to Flex Pay, Converted to Monthly 4G. I don’t have much to complain about. I do however REFUSE to sign another Cell Phone contract…. I have commitment issues.

      Your wrong… T-Mobile lets you buy any phone with or without a contract from their stores..

        at the store i used to work (3rd party store) we couldn’t sell em w/o a contract cause we didn’t make any commission out of it

      • Dakota

        I think the point was that the Google Play version is less expensive and comes unlocked…If youre going to use Tmobile service anyway – and youre on of the people who dont need tons of data, you can get the same service with one of the MVNOs

    Sooooo basically this is just a T-Mobile store locator, am I right?

    Google Maps heard you like maps, so they made a Nexus map of a map that you can already find on Google Maps.

    If anybody lives in la, the tmobile store on pico and la Cienega has many in stock. Apparently many people have returned it for the gs3, for more than 1 reason or another like no sd card and removable battery that some people didn’t know about before the purchase.

    Nice shot of Boca Raton David, looks like Tmobile has south Florida hooked up with a many stores as it does with coverage. I’m jealous, you would think they would give Cali more attention than most considering the population.

    • Just representing for my hood!

    So this basically so where u can get a nexus 4 and have one to display before buying it because I’m stuck between the nexus and the note
