Google says new Nexus 4 stock will arrive “in the coming weeks”

by: Bams SadewoNovember 14, 2012

Still trying to refresh the Nexus 4 homepage in the hope that it’ll magically show the phone as being in stock on Google Play? You may want to hear what Google has to say about the dire inventory situation of its Nexus devices.

Google made the following post on the Nexus’ Google Plus page:

There’s been so much interest for the Nexus lineup that we’ve sold out of some of our initial stock in a few countries! We are working hard to add more Nexus devices to Google Play in the coming weeks to keep up with the high demand. You can learn more about Nexus devices and stay updated at 

Yep, “the coming weeks” is the best timeline that Google can provide for the availability of the out-of-stock Nexus 4 and its cousin on Google’s online store for now. Of course, that could mean anything from tomorrow to next month and beyond.

If you’re in the U.S., you can get the Nexus 4 from T-Mobile starting today.  But those outside the country have to rely on Google Play to get their Nexus fix – at least for the time being. Hopefully Google will share more details soon.

Did you manage to score a Nexus 4 or two yesterday? What do you think of the new “availability date” of the Nexus 4?

    They didn’t have much stock to begin with. Definitelya good strategy in time for the Christmas season, to hype this up as much as possible. Even Google admitted it, …..’that we’ve sold out of some of our initial stock’.

  • phemark

    How much stock do you think they had?

    I would got for 1494 units worldwide…

    • flin

      1494 unites worldwide sounds about right.

    poor move leaving customers out in the cold means they will look for other devices LG 4X is on sale in Canada its pretty much the same dam devices with LTE support expandable memory and a removable battery so i don’t know why people are nuts over this phone oh and google shame on you for letting noobs order like 10 devices at a time 2 per person limit and you wouldn’t have to send emails to everyone asking if they really need 10 devices

  • yeah T-Mobile for $500 without the contract ! Thanks but, NO THANKS !

    i prefer to wait my few weeks, months or so and but it from google. for now i’ll still enjoy my GNote that still feels like the phone of tomorrow ! =D

    Seems like people out of google store will have to wait 2-3 months till traders get their hands on cheap nexuses and bring them over…

  • flin

    wtf. they announce it two weeks ago. yesterday comes around and its sold out in minutes and now i gotta wait another few weeks? if there is another phone available that is comparable for a good price around black friday i’m jumping on it. i want the nexus 4 but i’m guessing they didn’t even have a 1 million available worldwide.

    Google’s pure phone! You mean PURE bullshit with there sloppy sales.. And flip flopping around as to why there wasn’t enough phones available!! As much as I wanted this phone. I will go with the Nokia 920.. bye bye Google And your lame ASS launches whether phone or Tablet. Besides I’m starting to hear issues already from yellow screen to Glue not drying in time WTF!!!

    • s

      Nokia 920? Windows Phone? Why not just punch yourself in the dick …

  • Saying it will be available in the “coming weeks” means nothing. Every week in the future is a “coming week”.


    i managed to order 3 16GB nexus 4’s. i had been checking consistently since 12AM eastern. and woke up every 2-3 hrs. to check the site. once i read about the 9AM pacific launch, i kep myself refreshing every 5 mins and at 11:37AM eastern I was able to add to cart. i kept getting errors and never a confirmation that an order went through, kept telling me to retry. i thought i was doomed and wasn’t going to get one. about 10 mins. later an email confirmation from google playstore said my order was placed for 3 nexus 4’s. was really happy to see my diligence paid off…by the way i ordered from CANADA
