INTERNET SEARCH GIANT Google has hinted that it will soon be receiving more stock of its flagship Nexus 4 smartphone here in the UK.
The Google Nexus 4 has been showing as "sold out" on the Google Play store since the middle of December, due to overwhelming demand for the keenly priced smartphone. Google blamed LG for the shortage of Nexus 4 stock, but the phone maker denied that it was at fault.
However, it looks like LG and Google have sorted things out, as Google has hinted that it will soon be receiving more stock of its Android 4.2 Jelly Bean handset.
Gone is the "sold out" sign at the Google Play store, which has instead been replaced by a message saying that the device is "temporarily out of stock" and advising that customers should "check back soon".
Of course, this isn't confirmation that UK punters will soon be able to get their hands on a SIM-free Nexus 4 handset, but it certainly suggests that stock will be arriving in Blighty soon.
We've contacted Google for further information, but it has yet to respond to our request for comment. µ
