Just a quick PSA for all you Android folks out there waiting to get your mitts on the latest Google Flagship Nexus phone, Google has just announced that the Nexus 4 will go back on sale today starting at 12pm PST (3pm EST).
The Nexus 4 sold out at a blistering pace when it was initially launched via the Google Play store, the demand has caused delays in shipping of devices that were ordered over two weeks ago. Google had to suspend sales of the device because they couldn’t keep up with demand so hopefully now that the Nexus 4 is going back on sale means that all the folks who’ve been awaiting their shipping confirmation e-mail from Google will start getting them.
Google has been selling out of a lot of devices lately, which could be a sign of a few things but clearly it means that there is demand for pure Google Experience Android devices out there, which makes you wonder when carriers are going to stop pushing OEMs for differentiation within the eco-system. If it wasn’t for carriers pushing the “different” experiences, maybe manufacturers and carriers could get their act together with timely update cycles for Android devices and people would all around be happier.
Regardless of that side rant, get your credit cards out and get ready to order your Nexus 4 because we’re sure with all the news this is getting, this batch of devices is going to sell out as well.
