Nexus 4 8GB Sold Out In The U.S Play Store
By on December 2nd, 2012

Google and LG are clearly struggling with the demand for the Nexus 4. The company should have prepared itself after being bombarded with orders when the phone sold-out in just 20 minutes in Europe, Australia, United Kingdom and the United States when it was initially released on 13th November.

The Nexus 4 went back in sale on the U.S Play Store after the Thanksgiving weekend and while it did not really sold-out, the shipping time soon slipped to an insane 7-8 weeks for the 16GB as well as the 8GB variant of the handset.

As if these late shipping times were not enough, Google today finally put the Sold Out/Out of stock’ tag back on the 8GB variant of the Nexus 4 on the Play Store. The 16GB variant of the handset is not doing any better with a shipping time of around 9-10 weeks i.e. not before 2013. There is a very high possibility that the 16GB variant of the Nexus 4 will also go out of stock from the Play Store in the next few days. So, if the extremely long shipping times don’t bother you, head over to the Play Store and order the 16GB Nexus 4 now.

Looking at the way how Google and LG are struggling with the Nexus 4 orders in the United States, I am not too optimistic of the handset coming back in stock in Canada and other regions of the world anytime soon.
