Nexus 4 on Sale Now! (Updated: Sold Out…or Not)

LG Nexus 4 Review

If you missed the first batch of Nexus 4 devices that went on sale a couple of weeks back, now is your chance to try to snag one before they are all gone, again. The device is available in Google Play for $299 (8GB) and $349 (16GB), so quickly, hit up the link below.

Update:  Gone in seconds. Process filled with errors and checkout failures. What a mess.

Update 2:  Google has added a notice at the top of the Play store page, assuring us that the Nexus 4 is not sold out. They are simply experiencing a spike in traffic and cannot keep up.

    i just ordered one at 5:47 pm (pst) it was successful!

  • Gil137

    Finally, after 2.50 hours of errors adding to cart, cart being emptied, can not process order errors. Kept hitting process order button repeatedly and finally got though to check out.

    Apple fanboys stand in line on the sidewalk. We order online. Love it.

  • TheDrizzle

    Mine just went through. Got two of the 16gb. Still haven’t gotten the confirmation email and my order status is pending. I’m still skeptical until I have the device in my hands.

    • TheDrizzle

      Just got the confirm email, status is still pending though.

    We have all invited to hunger game on nov 27 noon PST time and what you expect millions of hunger on play store.

    Nothing is sold out. They have plenty of stock. Going to the website now displays the following:

    “Google Play is currently experiencing very high traffic. Nexus 4 is not
    sold out and will still be available for purchase. Please try again
    shortly. Thank you for your patience.”

    Kellex, what is ur wallpaper? Is it live?

  • StormFreak

    Google now has a statement on the Play Store: Google Play is currently experiencing very high traffic. Nexus 4 is not sold out and will still be available for purchase. Please try again shortly. Thank you for your patience.

    after refreshing the page 100 Times in the denial of it being sold out, it said Add to cart again and let me buy it ! It only took 500+ tries but i got it

  • I got 2!!! YAY!! 3 parts luck – 1 part skill. Awww yeah! Sorry guys…

  • Bar81

    Shipping is high but I think it’s 2day. Anyway even with that and tax the 16GB is still 1/3 cheaper than similar phones.

  • duke69111

    I’ve only counted a handful of the commenters who actually got one this time.

    As a side note, are they really charging $14.00 to ship that thing. Jeez.

  • Reuven Goldenberg

    Google = Amateurs in sales…

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    Is Google making 10 at a time or what?…this is ridiculous

  • MttFrog13

    i don’t think it’s sold out. I think the servers are just crashed. If you refresh it will allow you to add it to the cart, but then errors come up and won’t allow it to go through. From what I’m reading, noone has actually gotten an order in. Can anyone confirm that they ordered one today?

  • KewlRobD

    Just got one, you just have to keep trying. Their checkout is extremely flawed when being flooded.

  • IanYarborough

    Heh. Funny. The play store just started letting me add a Nexus to my cart again, but I refreshed so many times due to “high” demand errors that it made me complete a Captcha to prove my non spam-bot status. When I did, the Nexus had gone back to ‘sold out’. Great.

  • Jose

    DONT GIVE UP !!! keep refreshing and trying, i just landed the 16GB version, after trying for 30 minutes

  • Harsh Karn

    It still shows up to add in cart. But as soon as you try to pay “Due to high demand, your order could not be processed. Please try again later.” 🙂

  • Rob

    I still see both versions available.

    • Rob

      Just checked again and I still see both versions….. Refreshed several times too and every time I see both….

    • Rob

      Still seeing them…I can add both to my cart and get all the way up to the actual purchase.

  • Rob Catalano

    Google – I’ll give you this fix for free.

    Run a simple lottery page over the next 2 weeks that collects an email address and how many units they want.

    Pick a random set of winners that equals your on hand inventory count and send them a purchase invitation based on their last name.

    All the a’s purchase on day x, c’s on day y, d’s on day z.

    It’s not rocket science. Your pissing people off and not creating positive pr.

    • IanYarborough

      Agreed. Google even already has my address from the “I’m interested in a Nexus, here’s my email” page. You know? The one they didn’t use until today? To inform me of a device I’d be unable to buy? Yeah. That one.

  • IanYarborough

    I’m curious as to how many devices Google is allowing to be sold per transaction, because if I go on eBay later today and see a bunch of Nexus 4’s auctioning off for six hundred dollars or more, I’m going to lose my sh*t. Not very friendly towards those of us who are clearly Android’s biggest fans and evangelizers, Google. Also: to those commenters in this thread who are laughingly “just trying to order a second one” or more than one or two while the rest of us are unable to get our first one? Suck it.

    • TheDrizzle

      Its two per customer.

  • Bar81

    This is really weird. I was able to order one and when I go to the site both models have been in stock since 12PST consistently for me???

    It seems that they are limiting 8GB orders to 2 pieces and 16GB orders to one piece. Although if you get in multiple orders and they are no cross-checking, I guess it’s unlimited.

  • Engadgetnerd

    I was waiting by the computer hitting refresh till it went on sale. The. I hit add to shopping cart. Just to get into my shopping cart say that it couldn’t process request and that my cart is empty. I did this at least a dozen times. And now I have no phone to show for it. This is probably the sloppiest online shopping experience I’ve ever had. I know apple sucks sometimes but google really blows at customer experience when buying their stuff. I’m pissed!

  • God damn Google, I’m starting to get pissed.

  • WickedToby741

    This reminds me of the Touchpad fire sale. Moral of the story: people love great gadgets for cheap.

  • does anyone know if they are limiting it to one per customer? If they are not, I bet that some people are just buying these in bulk to resell them..
    It is pretty bad that google hasn’t been able to get a hold on supply for these, they should be making millions of these phones, seems like T-Mobile is probably getting a big chunk of the supply.
    Apple just tells you straight up, hey ships in two weeks. Google just take orders and put a wait on the order processing, and get their act together.

    • TheDrizzle

      Two per order/customer.

  • wes

    I highly doubt it is actually sold out – Nobody has actually been able to order one.

  • iProcreate

    Anybody have that wallpaper that’s shown in the pic?
