"Why can't I get a 4.3 inch 720p Snapdragon 600 SOC 8mp OIS Camera with Stock Android for $199 no contract no commitment?"
That is a little bit low for reality. It's like why cant I get a new BMW 3 series for $15,000.
"That should be the next Nexus 4. If Bear can put out close to that for $199, why can't Google?"
Have you ever even heard of Bear? I have not, but they are clearly in the cheap clone market. Wanna bet the phone is uber-cheaply made and has ROM issues as well as high failure rates? Very likely non-existant tech support as well. You arent going to see this sold on any legit carrier either.
