Google Nexus 4 back in stock at Google Play at 5pm

Drop everything phone fans, because the Google Nexus 4 is on sale at 5pm today at Google Play after weeks out of stock.

Nexus klaxon! Drop everything phone fans, because the Google Nexus 4 is on sale again today at Google Play after being out of stock for weeks.

The Nexus 4 goes on sale at 5pm today. The 8GB model costs £239 and the 16GB model costs £279 -- solid gold bargains for a quad-core, 4.7-inch smart phone with the latest Android Jelly Bean software built in.

The arrival of new Nexuses was heralded to phone fans with an email to anyone who had signed up for updates on the new phone. 

The popular Nexus 4 sold out in less than half an hour when it first went on sale, so fingers crossed it hangs around a bit longer when stock is released to the Google Play online shop this afternoon.

Fingers crossed too that delivery times will be a bit snappier. Even those who managed to endure the first day chaos and bag themselves a Nexus blower found themselves waiting up to three weeks to actually get their hands on their new phone.

After selling out initially, the Nexus 4 began showing up on eBay for crazy prices . The popular phone is also available on networks including O2 , but for substantially more than the £240 price on Google Play.

Are you dropping everything and heading for Google Play to bag a bargain blower? Or has Google lost your goodwill after the stock debacle? Tell me your thoughts in the comments or on our Facebook page.
