In less than 24 hours after Google’s Nexus 4 went on sale again via Google Play, yet again it ran out of stock of the 8GB variant of the smartphone.
If it’s only now you’ve decided to buy the 8GB variant of the Nexus 4, we’re sorry to tell you that it’s out of stock again from Google Play. The 16GB is still available for now, but it will take five to six weeks before the phone is delivered to your doorstep. Yesterday, delivery time was listed as four to five weeks.
Google Play ran out of stock of the 8GB variant of the smartphone, and it looks like they will run out of the 16GB variant as well. If you’re bent on getting your hands on the Nexus 4, this may be your last chance to do so.
The Nexus is not flying off shelves because it outperforms the Samsung Galaxy S3, or is it selling well due to its beautiful 4.7-inch HD display. It sells like hotcakes because the 8GB variant will only cost you £239, while the 16GB version only costs £279. Compared to the iPhone 5, you get a more powerful handset at less than half the price. So far, it’s the cheapest top of the line smartphone in the market.
Google, however, isn’t doing us any favours by not making the handset readily available. Buyers are annoyed they had to wait a long time before the phone went live again, and it took less than 24 hours before the 8GB version ran out of stock.
Initially, Google Play ran out of stock of the Nexus 4 in under 30 minutes after the phone went live and it took weeks before the phone went live again. O2 and Three are offering the handset, but with their prices you’re better off waiting for Google Play to replenish stocks.
