The quicker a phone's answered in sales, the slower it's answered in customer services - Brownridge's Law
INTERNET SEARCH GIANT Google's sought after flagship Android smartphone the Nexus 4 is back in stock and on sale again in the UK at the firm's online Play store.
The Nexus 4 has been showing as "sold out" since the middle of December due to overwhelming demand. However, the Play store webpage now says that the phone is available and shipping will take between one and two weeks for those who buy the phone today.
Google blamed the phone's manufacturer LG for the shortage of Nexus 4 stock in the run up to Christmas, but the phone maker denied that it was at fault. However, it looks like LG and Google have finally sorted things out, as both 8GB and 16GB models are now available in the store.
Despite the shortage, the Nexus 4 has been quite popular due to its relatively cheap price for its specifications, offering buyers a 4.7in HD touchscreen, a quad-core processor and the latest version of Google's mobile operating system, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, from just £229.
The Nexus 4 also has an 8MP rear-facing camera with HD 1080p video, a 1.3MP front-facing camera, a 2,100mAh battery and 3G and WiFi connectivity.
Judging by the high demand for the phone and how quickly it has flown in and out of the Google Play store since its release, we'd suggest snapping one up as soon as possible if you're thinking of buying one. µ
