Ready for more Nexus rumors? This time, a little more localized news for Malaysia though. Rumor has it, the LG Nexus 4 will cost about RM2099. Yes. RM2099 or USD685.
This could be for the 16GB but it also could be the STARTING price for 8GB. If it is indeed for the 8GB (which goes for USD299 on Google Play Store), this makes the Malaysian pricing more than double the price available in US. This is seriously absurd.
Personally, I do hope that LG gets some sense and price it more reasonably. I hope it comes at about equivalent prices, RM900-RM1050, and personally wouldn’t mind paying RM1200-RM1300 for it (which is already a RM300-RM400 or USD98-USD130 increase!) as I will get local warranty. But if it does actually come at RM2099, I’ll be taking a long hard look at getting someone to carry it back from US for me. A 50% discount over local prices will be much, much appreciated.
What do you think? Do you think buying a phone at 50% discount is worth the no warranty?
