Nexus 4 comes back in stock for ordering today

After two weeks in out-of-stock limbo, the dirt-cheap unlocked Google Android phone comes back online for ordering and another digital crush of customers.

Google has been a cruel mistress to Android fans looking to get their hands on a new Nexus 4 lately. After the latest Google-designed phone sold out in what felt like nanoseconds -- perhaps better described from now on as 'nexi-seconds' -- it's been two weeks of living in "out of stock" limbo.

Until today. At noon ET (9 a.m. PT), Google says, the Nexus 4 will be back on sale via the Google Play store.

The Nexus 4 is available unlocked and contract-free for $299, a price that led to a run on the phones in the U.S. and the U.K., causing bottlenecks in the Play Store and sold-out status in mere minutes.

Is there enough pent-up demand from the folks who missed the first crush two weeks ago to see a repeat of the phenomenon today?

Might want to limber up those fingers and practice your fastest clicking, tapping and swiping moves right now, just in case.
