Google's Nexus 4 smartphone, which launches globally today, sold out in just a few minutes after its launch.
Visitors to the Google Play store are now shown a "coming soon" notice for both the 8GB and 16GB versions of the handset. A variety of customers have reported that they've had trouble accessing the store or checking out successfully.
Elsewhere, the UK Google Play store also had its inventory of the Nexus 4 sell out in less than an hour of the order page opening. Dutch blog AndroidWorld, meanwhile, reports that a planned Netherlands launch for the device has been cancelled for now due to high demand in other regions.
The Nexus 4 was commended for its $299 starting price, with the device itself shipping with the latest Android version, Jelly Bean 4.2. Along with the 4-inch smartphone, Google also launched its Samsung-developed Nexus 10 tablet today.
