    I’m live in Spain, one of the countries where the Nexus 4 sells. Here the price now is 199€ (yes one more time $1=1€) plus 9,9€ for shipping for the version with 8G of storage.

    I know several people that had bought this phone recently for a price of 299€. For who that had bought it later than 17 of August, google has offered a refund.

    adem when a company announce a new product, with a price in american dollars and it reaches Europe, in almost every ocasion the conversion are $1=1€. I understand that those conversion includes higher taxes that are aplicable in Europe, for example in Spain the tax rate are 21%.
