8GB Nexus 4 sold out again, as Google apparently closes ‘pre-orders’

Just yesterday we reported that the average shipping time for the 16GB Nexus 4 has gotten up to 6-7 weeks, and now it looks like we have similar bad news for the 8GB model.

Just yesterday we reported that the average shipping times for the 16GB Nexus 4 have slipped to 6-7 weeks, and now it looks like we have similar bad news for the 8GB model.

While you can still “pre-order” the 16GB Nexus 4 from the Play Store – because essentially that’s what you’re doing when you’re buying an item that will ship almost two months from now – the 8GB model is out of stock.

Google is not letting interested customers purchase the device anymore, after shipping time went up to 9-10 weeks, and it’s currently listing the $299 smartphone as “Sold Out.”

Obviously, the Nexus 4 is selling like hot cakes, but we have no idea really how hot the cakes are since Google isn’t sharing and Nexus 4 sales numbers yet, and it probably won’t do so in the near future either.

What seems to be clear is that LG can’t keep up with current Nexus 4 demand. And we’d definitely be interested to see how many Nexus 4 units have been sold to date. While we’re talking about sales numbers, we’d also be interested to see how well the Optimus G is selling since the handset is basically an upgraded Nexus 4 version.

While we wait for sales numbers, tell us, have you “pre-ordered” your Nexus 4 in this second purchasing round? What version did you get and how much time do you have to wait for it to ship?
