Google has cut the price of its Nexus 4 smartphone by $100, meaning that the 8GB version has gone from $299 to $199, and the 16GB model is now $249, down from $349.

It’s the cheapest unlocked Android phone available, so if you don’t want to pay a carrier contract, you’re best getting one now.  The Nexus 4 has been on sale for about 9 months now, so it’s likely that Google is already trying to clear out its stock, to make way for a replacement model.

The Nexus 4 has been a popular smartphone, with the Play Store selling out in record time when it first went on sale.  Its success has been put down the fact that you’re not tied into a specific contract with the phone, which usually makes devices much more expensive.  However, Google set a new trend by keeping the price of the unlocked smartphone low, knowing that demand would be high enough for the company to still make a killing.  It’s also quad-core, and ships with Android 4.2, so this price cut makes it even better value.

The price of the Nexus 4 has also been cut by at least 25% in in Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, Korea, and the UK, so even international Google fans can pick up a bargain.  If you want to get your hands on one, you’d better act fast, as we think that the new Nexus will be announced in a matter of months.  However, if you’re not bothered about the saving, and just want to make sure you have the newest and best device, you’re probably better off waiting for the next Nexus smartphone to be announced.  Until then, the Nexus 4 really is one
