Nexus 4 back in stock after early sell-out
After selling out within a half hour of its initial availability, the LG-built Nexus 4 smartphone will be available again this afternoon at 12:00 PST. This according to emails sent out by Google to customers who had received backorder notices during the initial sales run of the device. There is no word on when the new wave of Nexus phones will begin shipping.
It has been roughly two weeks since the Nexus 4 debuted to a quick sell-out, and today's announcement is the first word Google has given on availability of the unlocked version of the Nexus 4 since it sold out. The search giant previously directed customers to T-Mobile, only to have units at that carrier sell out within hours.
The unlocked version that will reappear on the Google Play Store this afternoon sports a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 320ppi display. It retails for $299 for an 8GB model, or for $349 for a 16GB model.
