Google Nexus 4 sells out within hours

Want a Nexus 4 to play with this weekend? Sadly, you might be out of luck...

Gadgeteers loyal to the green Android flag whose dreams have been haunted by the sparkly allure of the Google Nexus 4 will have to wait a little while to get their hands on the new Jelly Bean smartphone – both the 8GB and 16GB models sold out within hours of going on sale.

A visit to the Play Store to snap up the latest flagship pure Android phone will now result in a ‘coming soon’ status for both models, with no indication of when more stock is due.

The 16GB Nexus 10 tablet with its iPad 4-beating screen is still in stock – although the 32GB model has also received the ‘coming soon’ treatment.

Bad news then for those looking to snap up a shiny new Nexus 4 on launch day, but considering that you can buy an unlocked Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 tablet for around the cost of a single SIM free smartphone, it’ll probably be worth the wait.

Read our Nexus 4 review in the meantime to keep those flames of desire burning brightly.
