Google will restock the Play store with the Google Nexus 7 and LG Nexus 4 in a matter of weeks, it has pledged, after exhausting its supply on its first day of release.
Amid a traffic surge that kyboshed the Play site, the Google Nexus 7 sold out within half an hour of going on sale Spurred by a keen price point of £239 for such a lavishly specc’d phone, Play’s supply of the Nexus 4 was also gone in short order.
If you were among the many who missed out on buying a slab of vanilla Android goodness, the good news today is that you shouldn’t have too long to wait to have another tilt at getting hands on some shiny, new Nexus kit.
A post on the search giant’s Google+ page stated: “There’s been so much interest for the Nexus line-up that we’ve sold out of some of our initial stock in a few countries!
“We are working hard to add more Nexus devices to Google Play in the coming weeks to keep up with the high demand.”
The Nexus 4's price at the Play store is believed to be so eminently affordable compared with contract pricing because Google is subsidising the cost of the phone to the tune of hundreds of pounds per unit.
