Nexus 4 back in the Play Store, but shipping in "1 to 2 weeks"

Nexus 4 back in the Play Store, but shipping in
Last night, we saw that the Nexus 4 listing in the Google Play Store had changed from "Sold out" to "Temporarily out of stock", and today we heard that the Nexus 4 would be back in the Play Store around noon. It was a bit after noon (around 12:20PM EST), but the Nexus 4 is back up for purchase in the Play Store. Unfortunately, it won't be shipping for "1 to 2 weeks".

We have no idea how long the stock will last, you if you want to get your hands on a Nexus 4, you'd better jump over to the Play Store listing now.

And, if you're interested, the Nexus 4 bumper case is also back in the Play Store. It is also shipping in "1 to 2 weeks", and is still insanely overpriced at $19.99.

So is the shipping free, or is it $19.99?

Google just created big hype saying they can not meet the demand for Nexus devices ( Nexus 4, 7 & 10). But now we know who is the Android Tablet king. Let them disclosed the sales number if they dare. I do not think they sold any think more than 500K.

I see it is now " illegal" to unlock your phone. Let's see if that helps Google.

Actually Rf, the XDA brain guys who cracked the serial codes figured out that they sold about 400,000...for the 2 hours people could buy it. Imagine if they had it on sale for the Christmas season instead of being down for nearly a month and a half.

I just bought mine as well. Why on earth are they charging $20 for 2 day shipping if the shipping date is 1-2 weeks

Once they ship it'll be 2 day air. The $20 is for shipping not processing AND shipping.

See, I feel like if it takes 1-2 weeks to ship, it's not 2 day shipping. I actually just had this argument with my co-worker...I think it's ridiculous.

Managed to snag a 8 GB model. I'm sure I'll regret not getting the 16 GB. But they charged my credit card immediately after, does that mean it's shipping soon?

It's been almost an hour and it still hasn't sold out. Google is doing quite a bit better this time around.

This should help LG lower their dependency on apple to make cash. They have figured things out.

IT'S ABOUT TIME As much as I love Jelly Bean and as much as the Nexus 4 is a ground-breaker because of the price, the launch for the second gen Nexus 4 had better be quicker than this. I'll be getting the next one from Google Play this Christmas.

Got one at 9:24am PST but i wanna ask anyone bought it with a debit card cuz I'm barely starting with my credit card and cant use more than $300 on the credit card. -So I paid with my debit anyone who bought b4 with a debit have any trouble??? - - Upgrading from a stupid LG Optimus Black with Android 2.3.4

I had no trouble using my debit card to purchase one. They did take my money out of my card right when I purchased it so that sounds like good news.

I bought mine with a debit. No issues to speak of. Is there something specific you're worried about, because a credit and a debit card should work identically?

Just a heads up total will be around 340 or 390 depending on the 8gb or 16gb You must pay for shipping and taxes, still a great deal

Ordered! Also, why is $20 "insanely overpriced". I can remember exactly but wasn't apple's crap bumper that much, or more?

It was 30$.... Now THAT'S overpriced lol...

$20 for a thick rubber band is insanely overpriced, especially given how inexpensive the phone is. If you're comparing the price to an Apple product, I think you already know that it's overpriced.
