    Quite strange. Prices on tablets - good, included Nexus. Prices on Nexus 4 = bad.

    Re: News - Carphone Warehouse tablet sales soar after price cuts

    Got to wonder how much of the price cuts are coming from the manufacturers. Although I'll freely admit to being very tempted by the £317 (and then a further £50 rebate from Samsung) on the Galaxy Note 10.1. However in the end I paid an extra quid to Tesco's - CPW's stocks of the GN10.1 seemed to be very low, only found one store claiming any stock, and I like the idea of £318 worth of Clubcard points - something that CPW can't match. Popped into a big Tesco's locally and got my GN10.1 "over the counter" with the minimum of fuss.

    Really like the GN10.1 by the way - stylish, well-built, fast and very flexible. And hey, if it's good enough for HRH (http://hexus.net/mobile/news/android...note-101-ipad/)...

    Just wish CPW were allowed to sell the Surface - would really like to get into RT, but don't fancy the current pricing.

    I've been "devolved" ... does it show?

    Yep why would you pay CPW £389 for a NEXUS 4 when you can buy one direct from GOOGLE for £100 less.

    I think it's the fact that you can't get them from Google at the moment. As soon as they come back in stock, I should imagine CPW's price will drop...

    Not Carphone warehouse's fault. This is Lg inflating the price over Google to make more money.
