I’m pretty sure that if you are in the United Kingdom and have had your eye on the Nexus 4, you will know that the Android smartphone was put up for sale on Google Play this morning. Obviously the Nexus 4 is going to be a huge success, as the word is not long after the smartphone went up for purchase, the device rapidly became unavailable due to the popular device selling out.
We received an email earlier today letting us know that the Nexus 4 had sold out, not just the 8GB version, but also the 16GB model, and both versions are no longer available to purchase at this time. One can only presume that along with the great specs and features the Android Jelly Bean 4.2 handset offers, the pricing for the device had something to do with the handset being so quickly snapped up.
Thus it would appear that many of the Android faithful who had hoped to snap up either the £239 8GB Nexus 4, or the £279 16GB version, will have to play the waiting game for a while longer at least, but those who have missed out can enter their details on Google Play to be notified when the smartphone is again available.
We have no idea on just how many of each model Google had in stock in advance of putting the Nexus 4 up for sale, but obviously someone failed to consider just how popular demand would be, but I figure Google was erring on the cautious side to see just how the handset took off with initial sales.
Also there is no real word on just when either model of the Nexus 4 will become available to purchase from Google Play in the UK again, but hopefully that notify me wont be around for too long, and the device will again be up for purchase soon. However that probably wont help those that have been left annoyed that they couldn’t buy the device right now.
So we’d like to hear from any of our UK readers that managed to purchase the Nexus 4 this morning, or if you are one of the unfortunate ones that have been left playing the waiting game.
