Although the Nexus 4 was released at the end of last year, not all the people wanting to buy it have got their hands on the device. The demand was so big that in some of the regions the Google Play store ran out of units to sell. We told you yesterday that the problem has been solved in the UK, and the British can now buy the Nexus 4 from the UK Play Store.
Today, there is good news for the people in Germany, as well, because the device is finally in stock again. In other words, if you are a German citizen and you want to purchase yourself a Nexus 4, you’ll be happy to hear that both 8GB and 16GB versions of the smartphone are once again available on the German Google Play Store. In case you make your order now, the estimated shipping time is 3 to 5 days, at least that’s what the company says. The same shipping date is specified on the UK Google Play Store too, but some users have complained that it takes more than that to receive the Nexus 4.
This availability problems have happened because LG and Google didn’t expect to be such a high demand for the Nexus 4 in Europe, and the two companies shipped too few handset units to the local Play Stores. Actually, the Nexus 4 is a very popular phone among the European users due to the fact that the smartphone comes with great specs and it’s very affordable for a high-end device.
Larry Page, who is the CEO of the internet giant, stated that the company’s first priority was to get the Nexus 4 back in stock in the countries that ran short of units, so that the needs of the customers could be met as soon as possible. It looks like the Google officials are keeping their words as we are getting news about the Nexus 4 being back on stock almost every day. Of course, it’s in the best interest of the company to do that.
As I said, the Nexus 4 is a rather cheap smartphone and that is very appealing for the people wanting a good device at a fair price. Surprisingly, the demand for the Nexus 4 is still high even though the HTC One and the Samsung Galaxy S4 are about to become available in Europe.
You can get the 8GB version of the Nexus 4 at only €249, while the 16GB model is sold at €349.
So, lets hear it from the people in Germany. Will you purchase the Nexus 4 now that’s available again, or you’re going to wait for the Galaxy S4 and HTC One?
