Google's flagship Nexus phone is back in stock for UK shoppers.
Despite the fact that it was released months ago, those trying to get their hands on an unlocked, contract-free Nexus 4 are still having trouble. There's good news for those in the UK, though: The Nexus 4 is back in stock on the UK Google Play Store.
Pocket-lint reports that both the 8GB and the 16GB Nexus 4 are back in stock and on sale. The 8GB model (as usual) costs £239, while the 16GB model goes for a pricier (but still very affordable) £279. While it's still more than you'd pay for the phones in the United States ($299/£197 for the 8GB or $349/£230 for the 16GB), it's fairly cheap given the normal range for unlocked phones is so much higher (as much as £600). Current shipping time is 3-5 days, which is really nothing compared to the eight-week wait some users endured when the phone first launched.
Developed in collaboration with LG (a first for the South Korean company), the Nexus 4 packs a 4.7-inch 1280x768 IPS display (320 ppi), Qualcomm's Snapdragon S4 CPU, 2GB of RAM, 8GB or 16GB of storage, an 8-megapixel camera (1.3-megapixel camera up front), a 2,100mAh Li-Polymer battery, NFC, and Android 4.2. Unfortunately, the phone doesn't have support for 4G LTE, nor does it allow for external storage via MicroSD, which means you're stuck with the capacity you choose at check out.
