Unboxing Google's Nexus 4 smartphone
Google has been a cruel mistress to Android fans looking to get their hands on a new Nexus 4 lately. After the latest Google-designed phone sold out in what felt like nanoseconds -- perhaps better described from now on as 'nexi-seconds' -- it's been two weeks of living in "out of stock" limbo.
Until today. At noon ET (9 a.m. PT), Google says, the Nexus 4 will be back on sale via the Google Play store.
The Nexus 4 is available unlocked and contract-free for $299, a price that led to a run on the phones in the U.S. and the U.K., causing bottlenecks in the Play Store and sold-out status in mere minutes.
Is there enough pent-up demand from the folks who missed the first crush two weeks ago to see a repeat of the phenomenon today?
Might want to limber up those fingers and practice your fastest clicking, tapping and swiping moves right now, just in case.
