That was quick: Nexus 4 sells out in U.K. Play Store in 30 minutes

Not just that, many users trying to place an order had problems with the Devices section in the Play Store, and on their second attempt the coveted Nexus 4 was already out of stock in both its versions.
The Nexus 4 phone is a 4.7-inch device packed with the best hardware out there: a 1.5GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro chip, the latest Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, and an 8-megapixel camera.
The Nexus 10 32GB has also obviously sold out now, while the 16GB one is still in stock, but it could have well sold out in minutes as well.
Same story in Australia: the Nexus 4 and 10 have now sold out there as well.
While we are waiting for the Nexus 4 and 10 to launch in the United States, we would definitely keep on hitting the refresh button on the Play Store often, hoping to be able to place an order before it sells out.
We don't know whether it is tight supply or the huge demand, but it seems that Google is right on the money with its latest devices.

This is genius move by Google. Google Play lags behind competition b-c people are too lazy to open an account with Play Store (with credit card info of course). And now people flock in, they each have to open an account, give all the info only for a "CHANCE" to buy the greatest thing. Genius!

could be a marketing strategy, overload from idiots lurking (refreshing continually) waiting to buy as soon as its available or Google just underestimated demand, either way best to wait a bit. Heard people saying the add to cart button reappears from time to time

Junk phone. This phone is dead on arrival vs iPhone . iPhone 5 trumps all phones specs wise, not to mention it's running on much more refined iOS.

"iPhone 5 hardware trumps all phones out there in the market" iPhone 5 has dual core, Nexus 4 has quad core Both has the same megapixel on camera Nexus 4 has larger resolution & bigger battery the idea of A6 is more likely to copy S4 custom architecture "not to mention it's running on much more refined iOS" i wouldn't call an OS that looks the same since 2007 refined. WP is exciting for its uniqueness, android has a lot of changes in a short period of time. that's what people call refined. iOS is no slouch but it's just getting boring
