8GB Google Nexus 4 out of stock once again

8GB Google Nexus 4 out of stock once again
By now, LG and Google know that they have a hit on their hands with the Google Nexus 4, and have probably ordered up more stock from suppliers. But even contract manufacturers can't add more time to the 24 hours a day that some of the assembly lines churn out product. Yes, they might be able to turn a 12 year old school girl into a 35 year-old mother of three, but they can't add more hours to a day.

The 8GB variant of the Google Nexus 4 is now sold out again and orders for the unit cannot be placed. Recently, the backlog for the phone reached 9 to 10 weeks. Google is still taking orders for the 16GB variant priced at a tantalizing $349. Those orders are being shipped in 6-7 weeks which pretty much takes you past December 25th. Hopefully those ordering the unlocked handset as a holiday gift were able to get their order processed in time.

Meanwhile, the 16GB Google Nexus 4 remains out of stock at T-Mobile despite the price which is $150 more than from Google directly, so that takes the carrier out of play. As we've pointed out before, if you need the phone immediately, your best bet might be eBay. New restrictions on sellers offering the phone should heighten security and lessen the chance that you're gonna get rooked. Prices have come down since the new rules were put in force and you can pick up the 16GB of the phone for $599.99. If time is not an issue, you can still buy the same version from the Google Play Store for $349 assuming that the 6 to 7 week wait is not a problem.
