as-promised-the-nexus-4-is-now-back-in-stock-on-australian-play-store

Months after the worldwide release, the Nexus 4 is still in short supply in nearly every market around the globe. If you're in Australia or Spain (and reading this on Tuesday) you might have a shot at grabbing the world's most elusive Android phone. The local editions of the Play Store are currently showing the Nexus 4 in stock in both 8GB and 16GB flavors.

The last time that the Nexus 4 was available in both these countries, the supply dwindled almost immediately - according to commenters, Spanish supplies were depleted in an eye-popping ten minutes. If you're reading this in las horas de la madrugada in Europe or early arvo down under, you'd better hurry and get your order in as soon as possible. Before you ask, the Nexus 4 bumper is sold out in both stores. Let us know in the comments section if you managed to snag a phone for yourself.

    And WiFi and bluetooth are still not working on the Nexus 4!

    Sadly, but that's the current state with the phone. If Google ever gets an update pushed out that fixes the ARP data dropout problems with the Qualcomm WiFi driver, and which fixes the other WiFi and bluetooth problems in Android 4.2.1, then it could be a good phone.

    Unfortunately, it turns into a glass brick if you try to use it with WiFi.

    Me, I'm waiting to purchase my 4th N4 until after an update comes out, andother people have tested it and proven that it works as advertised.

      It works perfectly fine here... Mind that I'm using the custom ROM Paranoid Android. Maybe they integrated some sort of fix for that.

      It works fine for me (on stock).
