Google UK stops taking all Nexus 4 orders

Google has now stopped taking orders for the 16GB Nexus 4. Again. The phone’s listing now just says “SOLD OUT” in big red letters with no option to place a buy, no doubt as a result of the ongoing stock and ordering problems that recetly led the boss of Google to apologise to those stuck in the stock queue awaiting delivery.

Obviously the 8GB version of the Nexus 4 is still SOLD OUT as well, with the smaller, cheaper model not reappearing for purchase since selling out in minutes when it first went on sale back in November.

It really is an enormous mess, and it’s very hard to believe Google didn’t expect a massively discounted, cutting-edge Android model to be this highly sought after.

    Ordered a 16GB model on the 4th with the 1-2 week wait message and got my dispatch notification last night. So its all happening as planned for me.

      Exactly the same for me. I thought it was being shipped by DHL but apparently they sent it through TNT. Hopefully it will show up tomorrow (Wednesday)

    I had a shipping notification on 18/12/12 and it arrived today. Really happy with it and I hope others are too.

    Aw I am jealous! I ordered on 4th as well, around 10pm, but was told 5-6 week wait :(

      Christ, I ordered on the 5th. I’m going to be waiting until (next) Christmas at this rate :(
