White Nexus 4 8GB model is no longer available on Google Play

So, when we heard that the white Nexus 4 was going to be a limited edition, it was not a marketing tactic. If you check out Google Play and look at the 8GB flavor of the white Nexus 4 you will see it is no longer available. Instead, you are prompted to choose another Nexus device.  The 16GB model is available in white, and it still comes with a free bumper case with purchase. Who knows how many of those devices are left in the storeroom? The black Nexus 4s are still in stock.

While Google Play has not had the easiest of times managing demand and estimating shipping for people that have wanted to buy a Nexus 4, it is pretty clear that the white 8GB device has run its course. If you were on the fence about buying a Nexus 4 versus a Google Edition Samsung Galaxy S4 or HTC One, remember those devices are not expected to ship until July 9th, and then we really do not have an idea what sort of demand Google and the OEMs will be dealing with.

If demand is strong like it was for the Nexus 4, expect Google Play to choke on the demand and do not expect a quick shipping time. Given the price difference between the Samsung and HTC versus the Nexus 4 however, we are not so sure that will be the case.

If the white Nexus 4 appealed to you though, you might not want to wait much longer.

This one needs an urgent refresh...The on screen buttons sucked, the brittle glass coating at the back sucked, outside of the PLAY STORE, this thing is definitely NOT a bargain Those monster specs without an sd slot? wow what a waste.

How does the on-screen button sucks? I found them very reliable.

He lives in 1997, he will never know the future. We're using on-screen buttons, and he's still using physical buttons with no touch screen.

it WASTES screen space...kiddo you know, where a 4.7 inch isn't actually 4.7 once you browse the web? WOW , I'm surprised you didn't know that lol

I think it's big enough for normal usage. If you do a lot of reading, just get a tablet for its large screen.. Also, why not just root it? It's a Nexus. There's mod for almost everything on it. On my N4, I use a custom rom to hide the Nav bar and navigate using a special implementation called PIE. It's Android man.. You can do practically anything.. kiddo.

that kiddo is right, it is a waste of space unless they add a feature to remove the on screen button. Also only a minority of people roots their device,

Ha! like 95 percent of Android users know how to root their devices.

I for one, find the on-screen buttons very useful. especially the recent apps and shortcut to Google Now. And I don't really mind the loss of a few centimeters that bad when browsing.

He's not an isheep. He just dislikes Nexuses... because iDevices themselves don't have sd slots..
