Nexus 4 will be back on sale today at 12PM PST


Google has just begun notifying customers on their Nexus 4 watch list that the handset will be back on sale today, November 27th, at 12:00 noon PST via the Google Play Store. For the East Coasters too lazy to do math (like me), that’s 3PM EST.

Here’s the pertinent text from the email:

“Nexus 4 will be available for purchase later today!
Order yours from Google Play starting today, November 27 at 12:00 noon PST (U.S. only).”

The Nexus 4 initially went on sale on November 13th and sold out in record fashion. The phone has been unavailable direct from Google since, though those willing to sign a wireless contract could pick up the device from T-Mobile. As the above email states, the newly available Nexus units are reserved for US customers only. Google has not announced any availability plans for other regions just yet.

Google’s handling of the Nexus 4 launch has left more than a few customers miffed. Hopefully a replenished stock will come with an improver customer service experience, but there are no guarantees. You will want to act fast if you plan on buying. There are still plenty out there just itching to get their hands on the flagship Android 4.2 device.

[Thanks to all who sent this in!]

  1. Got to love how the “notify email” signup that we all did originally didn’t work for the initial launch, but magically works now, like it is supposed to!

    1. At least they fixed the problem. I got mine as soon as I woke up this morning. I’m not one to complain when someone admits a problem and then corrects that problem.

      1. Agreed, but the problem still is: Google hasn’t admitted to any problem.

    2. Too bad it wasn’t more of a “we’re in stock, buy it as soon as you realize it” sort of a thing. That would have been a LOT cooler as we could’ve bought one before the masses. I got the email before 7:30 AM this morning. Instead they had to be UNCOOL by saying wait til noon California time… SOLD OUT – AGAIN, of course.

  2. Let’s see how quickly the servers crash!

    1. Yeah, I’ll get as far as adding the Nexus 4 into my cart and then error codes!

  3. Outbreaks of broken glass backs have discouraged me from my initial frenzied buying zeal. Holding off for now.

    1. You have heard of a “bumper” haven’t you?

      1. A bumper is not perfect. I’ve read a few reports in different forums about theirs breaking WITH a bumper.

    2. Cool!
      One less buyer. Hope thousands more agree with you.
      I’ll handle with care and buy a case like every other phone I’ve owned.

    3. I don’t give a motherfuck, buying a full blown case and never taking it off. People really get too uptight about showing off the design. Resale value over “look” any day!!

      1. its like wearing a condom m8 – it just ain’t the same ! but each to their own.

  4. Seconds after I send the tip…
    C’mon Google… Get your servers ready and have more than 20 in stock!!

  5. Let the madness begin. Lol @ the Ebayers stuck with phones they want be able to sell.

    1. Actually they would be catering more for the overseas markets anyways.

  6. It will be sold out a few minutes again. MWAHAHAHAHA!!

  7. Wonder what time they will really go on sale, since they launched early last time.

  8. Damn, US only :(

  9. Holy mother of god, YES!!!!

  10. My brother called yesterday to complain that he is still on backorder, and a google customer service rep told him that the original stock that sold out november 13th was only 50,000 units, and millions were sold (backordered) 0_O

    1. Yeah right.
      Google would never tell some generic phone rep how much stock they have. If you believe your brother, I’ve got some summer condos to sell you in Greenland.

      1. I believe that’s what the phone rep told my brother, whether or not I believe the phone rep is a different question.

  11. US only? really Google?

  12. Ya so I just got the notice that the Google Nexus 4 is going on sale today at 4… I still have NO information about my order on November 13th! How can they start selling the device again when back orders haven’t been fulfilled yet! WTF so pissed off right now.

    1. Support tells me its shipping this week even though I didn’t get a notice. I get the impression they just respond with what you want to hear.

  13. do you pay separate shipping for each one if you bought 2?

  14. UK please?

    1. Really? Korea and other countries get the GS3 before the US. So…? It’s only fair. =.S

      1. Yes, really.
        I’m perfectly fine with the fact that the US got a second batch. I just want to have a second batch for the UK at some point, so I can buy one.

        Call it my selfish wish, if you must. :)

        1. Bwahahahaa!! I completely understand.

  15. Has there been any word as to when the wireless charger will be put on the play store?

  16. Do they really mean 12 noon and not early again like last time?!

  17. I’m impressed Nexus 4 sold out so quickly. But whose to say the product won’t sale out again with a high demand?

  18. I wonder if google will jump the gun again and make it available for sale a half hour early.

  19. Received word today that my back order has shipped!

  20. So can we assume that a new shipment of bumpers will be available for purchase as well? As one of the lucky ones who was able to get a order in for the phone the first go around but missed out on the bumper, this would be nice.

  21. Nice to see Google finally put a limit on how many phones you can buy. I just looked to see if they had sold out again and when I click on 16gb it says I have reached my limit on this phone.

  22. Bwahahahaaa!! I remember reading about Daily Deals just a few days ago. I’m sure they’re going to lose customers for being so… un-deal-like. LoL!!

    But I’m sure this is good news for those who want this phone.

  23. is the bumper going back on sale??

  24. got the phone in my cart….and then it was gone!

  25. You’re all a bunch of phvcking retarded a-holes. Thanks SO much for broadcasting it so that those of us that actually cared enough to sign up for the damn email were unable AGAIN to purchase one. DB’s.

    1. Did that make you feel better?

  26. Added to cart then poof.

  27. Oops, we had trouble processing your request. We’re working on fixing the issue. Please try again later.

    1. Yeah…try again after it’s sold out please! If you get the phone in your cart…then other people buy it after you, something is wrong there! I had it in my cart, then it was gone a few times!

  28. Another epic fail. Either this is the most popular product in the history of the world, or Google have no stock and their infrastucture isn’t quite as good as they think it is.

  29. Uh yeah it was sold out again by 11:59a

  30. “Due to high demand, your order could not be processed. Please try again later.”

    “Items in Your Cart: Your cart is currently empty.”

    “Oops, we had trouble processing your request. We’re working on fixing the issue. Please try again later.”

    “We’re sorry, there was an error. Please try again later.”

    “Oops, we had a problem with your request. Please try again.
    Your cart is currently empty.”

  31. “Unable to process due to high demand”…

    1. Just keep pressing the proceed button after its grey, the order will go through.
