With all the Nexus 4 craziness going on here in the United States it’s easy to forget that our friends in other parts of the world are also having a tough time getting their Nexus 4 units from Google Play. The UK and Australian stores had just as many problems as the US store, and it looks like Google has finally gotten some more units in to help meet demand for our those across the pond.
That’s right, UK consumers will have another opportunity to purchase the Nexus 4 later today. The sale will go live at 5pm GMT, and remember that there’s a chance things could go live early so give yourself enough time to get online and prepare.
That means there’s just about an hour left so hurry to the Play Store and make sure your account is ready as you’ll want to do everything you can to shorten the checkout process. Set your cards up on Google Checkout, double check your billing and shipping addresses, and do whatever else you have to do to give yourself a better chance.
Unfortunately a second sale doesn’t immediately guarantee units for all those who missed out the first time around. If the US relaunch is anything to go by then there’s a high chance that the Play Store could experience just as many problems, and there’s no telling how much stock Google has to meet demand.
Be sure to circle back and let us know how everything goes as we’re interested to see if Google’s finally made strides in both server capacity and customer service to help facilitate this second launch. Any strays out there still looking for a Nexus 4?
