It’s almost November 13, which means new Nexus devices will be available for pre-order in various markets in the following hours. In fact, Australians can already order the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10, with the 16GB Nexus 4 being sold out minutes after its official launch in the country.

While you anxiously wait to purchase you next Nexus smartphone, we’ll remind you that Google also has a special protection accessory for the handset, a bumper that’s very much like the iPhone 4’s bumper that got famous due to the Antennagate issues in 2010, and which was confirmed only a few weeks ago.

The Nexus 4 bumper has apparently been listed in the Google Play Store already, so future Nexus 4 buyers will be able to get one for $19.99. The accessory is available in black only at this time, measures 133.9 x 68.7 x 9.1mm and weighs 20g.

The other, more interesting Nexus 4 accessory which should also be available from the Play Store later on, the wireless Charging Orb, is not yet available to interested consumers.

Are you buying a bumper for your Nexus 4?

  • I won’t be able to order the phone until this morning, so if Google and lg run out from low stock I will be pissed. I will get this bumper, but not immediately

  • OMG already 12:21 November 13th and the Nexus 4 isn’t yet available!!! Does somebody know why????

    Damn hurry up and release the price of the orb! What time will the nexus 4 go on sale in the states??????

  • That is my question.. I thought it was only me.. But now I see you have the same problem.. The 8GB one has the little yellow box that says coming soon.. But the 16GB one doesn’t… and both of them have the NOTIFY ME button instead of add to cart!!

    I think that a bumper/screen protector combo will be enough to keep it in good shape. Anything that covers the back is unacceptable.
