amsung Galaxy Nexus removed from the Google Play Store

If, for whatever reason, you were hoping Google might keep the Samsung Galaxy Nexus hanging around the Google Play Store at a lower price, we have some bad news for you. After the official announcement of the Nexus 4, Google promptly removed the Samsung Galaxy Nexus from the site, making it no longer available for purchase. If you want one now, you'll have to look toward other providers or start hitting up those daily deal sites where they might start appearing super cheap.

FWIW: Samsung Galaxy Nexus removed from the Google Play Store


I don't see why they would do this. I would have liked if they sold it at like $200 until they ran out of stock.

Yup.. there has to be stock left, doesn't make sense. Now what are they going to do with the left over stock? give them to Google employees and their families?

Hopefully not... that'd be an insult honestly.

"Oh look, we just happened to have these lying around and thought you might like one."

Kind of sucks. The Gnex is still a great phone. Got mine 3 months ago and will not be replacing it till at least July of next year when my AT&T commitment is up. And may hold on to it and go Pre-Paid or get another unlocked Nexus. Hopefully there will be other Nexi from other OEM's by then.

I can see why they did that. It would be really sweet anyone who bought a nexus in the pass month got a free upgrade to to nexus 4

Or could it be that Google doesn't want to much up the Play Store with too many Hardware choices? Another parallel is that they more than likely have 8GB Nexus 7 stock around but instead of selling it off at $149 they just removed it from the store to push new product.

Maybe they shouldn't have wasted time with the 8GB Nexus 4 and just dropped the price on the GNex to take that slot. Still, I'm glad to be able to get a 16GB Nexus 4 for the same price I was getting prepared to buy a GNex for!

Perhaps Google finally has figured out that they can't keep selling things at a loss when their core business is no longer growing. Depending upon their deal, it may be easier to dump them back on the manufacturer, than lose money on a per unit basis. Google also hardly has a reputation for putting its customers first, except among its hard core fans.

I'm tryna get me a Gnex or a Nex4 but the Google Play doesn't sell them in my country and the shops here don't seem to have either. Anyone wana let go of theirs at a good price? Catch me on papiasb@gmail. Thanks
