Nexus 4 8GB sold out again, wait time rises for 16GB model

The 8GB Nexus 4 is sold out again, bad news for anyone who didn't manage to snap one up last night.

The Nexus 4 is sold out again, less than 24 hours after Google managed to find more stock for its much-anticipated smart phone.

If you didn't manage to snap up the £239 bargain blower last night, then unfortunately you're out of luck again. At the time of writing you can still throw down cash for the 16GB model, but the wait time for shipping has risen to five to six weeks.

With the cheaper 8GB model unavailable, I suspect it's a matter of hours before the 16GB option is sold out too. If you've been trying unsuccessfully for weeks to get your mitts on the Nexus 4 at Google's low, low price, this morning could be your last chance for a while.

I reckon the Nexus 4 is the most exciting phone of the year, and not because of its Galaxy S3-beating performance, or its gorgeous high-resolution screen. Nope, this phone's headline feature is that it's less than half the price of the iPhone 5, and the cheapest high-powered smart phone we've ever encountered, by far.

That cheapo price only counts in the Nexus 4's favour if it's available to buy though. Google is relatively new to the business of flogging hardware itself rather than via retailers, and while demand for the Nexus 4 is obviously high, it's fair to say the Big G isn't making a great first impression -- reports of crashed websites and confusing shopping systems abound.

The Nexus 4 went on sale earlier this month, but sold out in half an hour, leaving shoppers fuming. You can buy the Nexus 4 from networks like O2 or Three, but you'll end up paying a lot more than you would if you bought it from Google.

Have you snapped up the Nexus 4? Let me know in the comments, or on our Facebook wall.
