Having sold out within 30 minutes of its recent November 13 Google Nexus 4 UK release date, Google Nexus 4 sales are to resume later today, December 4.

Confirming the incoming arrival of additional Google Nexus 4 stock, the search giant turn smartphone behemoth has revealed that Google Nexus 4 UK sales will resume at 5pm this evening, offering eager customers another chance to snap up the high-end quad-core handset at its wallet friendly SIM-free price tag.

Making the announcement via an official email to those who had registered interest in the Samsung Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 rival, the new stock marks the first time Google Nexus 4 UK sales have been made available through the Google Play Store since launch day stock sold out in just 30 minutes.

“Nexus 4 will be available for purchase later today,” a Google spokesperson announced via the widespread email. “Order yours from Google Play starting today, December 4 at 5:00 p.m. GMT."

Severely undercutting the deals laid out by network providers and third-party retailers, the Google Play Store has set budget appeasing Google Nexus 4 price tags with the 8GB edition setting wannabe owners back just £239 whilst the 16GB model lining up at £279.

Google Nexus 4 Features

Despite its low-end price point the Google Nexus 4 specs are some of the strongest on the smartphone market with a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor running the show alongside the revised Android 4.2 Jelly Bean OS which the handset helped launch.

Elsewhere, a 4.7-inch WXGA IPS display features with a stunning 1280 x 768p resolution and 320ppi image density whilst a Corning Gorilla Glass 2 coating adds protection against everyday knocks, drops and scrapes. With 2GB of RAM thrown into the mix, a 2,100mAH Lithium polymer battery keeps things running as an 8-megapixel rear-mounted camera lines up on the 9.1mm thick, 139g in weight device alongside a second, 1.3-megapixel forward-facing snapper.

Yep , just ordered mine, looking forward to tethering with my Nexus 7, when I'm out of wifi range.
It did say 1 to 2 week delivery when I ordered, but now showing 4 weeks, so I hope that's for another restock

Snagged one too, looks like Google learnt quickly from the shambles of the first sale.

They only allowed you to buy one of each model.

I was going to buy one for my daugther as a Christmas present but with 4-5weeks listed for the dispatch I decided not to bother. Google have a great deal to learn about product launches and selling actual products on the internet.

Thanks for the heads up, just ordered a 16gb version and checkout seemed to suggest 2 day shipping. We'll see. Just got to the end of a Three network contract with a tired and slow HTC wildfire, so looking forward to the massively improved functionality inferred by various reviews.
