Want a Nexus 4? Google tells you where to go

Google, in conjunction with LG, released the Nexus 4 on November 13 2012 and it has largely been difficult to get ever since. At the time of writing the Google Play store claims the device will ship in "1-2 weeks". However, Google would like to help out potential customers who are looking to get the handset a bit sooner and, to that end, the company has created a way to get a Nexus 4 today.

The search giant has launched a finder web site to aid you in locating a Nexus 4 close to home. Of course, this means the locations of T-Mobile stores around you, but at least you learn where the device is actually in stock. Customers can choose from distances ranging from five to fifty miles, depending on how far you wish to drive to grab your new phone.

Purchasers will also get a bonus now as Android 4.2.2 rolled out to the device this week, meaning you will already be several steps ahead of Galaxy Nexus customers who languish on the Verizon network.

The site uses Google Maps to pinpoint the locations of stores that have the Nexus 4 in stock. Of course, you will have to do the leg work -- or driving work in this case. But, the result will be a shiny new phone that runs that latest and greatest Android mobile operating system.
