Google Nexus 4 Sells Out In Less Than An Hour

Thank God Google isn’t selling the Nexus 4 in a physical store just yet. The stampede we’ve seen over the afternoon would have likely seen someone killed. The long-awaited Nexus went up on the Australian Google Play store today at around midday, and as quick as you like, the device was gone.

We were seriously impressed with the new Nexus when we went hands-on a week ago, and clearly so was the gadget-loving horde that swooped in to the Google Play Store this afternoon.

The Nexus 4 was so popular that a it reportedly sold out within the hour.

We’ve got word in with Google Australia to find out just how fast the Nexus 4 disappeared from the virtual shelves and to find out when there will be more on offer. In the meantime, you can stare longingly at that “Notify Me When Available” page.
