While Google has sold out a second Nexus 4 batch in various markets where the handset can be ordered via the Play Store, not all the buyers in this second purchase round were lucky enough to have their devices shipped in 1-2 weeks.

In fact, some Nexus 4 buyers will only get the smartphone in January 2013, so there’s plenty of waiting to be done for these pre-orders to ship. Nonetheless, Google is apparently ready to move more Nexus 4 units in Canada, where Mobile Syrup reports that shipping notifications have been sent out to some buyers.

According to the emails, the Nexus 4 is about to be shipped. Right in time for Christmas:

“Great news! Your order on Google Play has shipped. Track the status of your package UPS #XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX. Note that it may take 24 hours for your tracking number to return any information.”

Let’s hear it from Canadian, and non-Canadian Nexus 4 buyers! Did you get such notifications these days?
