Nexus 4 Still Not Back On Sale In Australia

When Google's Nexus 4 Android phone first went on sale, it sold out incredibly quickly. US customers have been given a second opportunity to order the phone directly from Google, but that option doesn't extend to Australia.

Android Central reports that the devices went back on sale at noon Pacific time in the US (that was 7am AEDT). However, while American buyers are apparently experiencing a similar kind of meltdown, the Australian version of the Play store still displays the "We are out of inventory. Please check back soon." message for both the 8GB and 16GB models.

If you're uber-keen, you can order one for over-the-odds money from Mobicity, but even that only represents a pre-order.


    Every nexus device is now sold out

    I got this message this morning "Google Play is currently experiencing very high traffic. Nexus 4 is not sold out and will still be available for purchase. Please try again shortly. Thank you for your patience."

    From the sounds of it, you might be better off waiting for a hardware revision. Shame if you wanted it for a Christmas pressie. Personally, I'm going to console myself with a Nexus 7.

    If you register you interest on their site they will send you an email letting you know when you can purchase it. No need to keep checking their web site. Just like they did last time, right Google?

      How do you register your interest on the Google site ??

    I registered before it was out, never got any notification it was out, when i went to check, all sold out, so just have to wait god knows when, was hoping to have it before xmas :(

      This happened to me as well, and I had registered two email addresses (I use two, and visit each just as often as the other) along with my brother's single address. Neither of us were notified when sales began.

    What's with the US$416 cost in Australia?

    I registered first time around and am still waiting for my email. I wanted to have this before Christmas but it looks pretty unlikely now. Sad face.

    @Salsa Sam, the $416 price in Australia is inclusive of tax and (I think) shipping. So it is a little more than the US but not unreasonably so.

      I don't think GST + shipping explains that price discrepancy.
      Hooray for free trade.... zzzz

    No LTE :(

    I would be in the queue waiting as well if it had LTE, with all I do on my phone during my public transport travels I found NextG wasn't keeping up. LTE has been able to provide enough bandwidth on the tram.

    Huge stock problems are not good for a company's image. I really want to buy a Nexus 4 but cannot get one. Should we all be scalpers?

    Thank heavens I bought a Nexus 7 already. Dying to get this soon though, but it don't seem like it'd be available any time soon. Major bummer.

    January 20 and still no sign of stock.
    Looks like we might be waiting a while :/
