If you've been on the fence about about picking up the white version of the Nexus 4 that just hit the store three days ago, the decision has been made for you if the sixteen gigger was your peach. As of this moment, Google is "temporarily out of stock" of the sparkly white flagship with 16GBs of storage, but if happen to think eight geebees may do the job, then you're still in luck.


Hopefully El Goog anticipated an influx of new sales and will be getting more white 16s in stock soon enough. Of course, the black one is still available if you simply must have a Nexus 4 right this minute.

      Haha, naw - my black N4 is still going strong. :P

  • Jordan

    Mine was shipped on friday, but now when i track it it says package intercepted, returning to sender. Maybe google wasn't ready to sell these things

    • Justin Winker

      They requested it be returned, which is odd. Give them a jingle and ask why.

    • Adam.S

      Same thing happened to mine.

    • Chris

      Same thing with mine...yet it's still making it's way here...still says delivery date tomorrow, so I guess we'll find out soon.

    • AJ

      Same here.....mine actually got to my city. It was supposed to be delivered tomorrow but when i checked it again...return to sender

    • Alan

      Mine also made it to my city and was supposed to be delivered tomorrow, but got intercepted. I called support and got someone right away. The guy said that a lot of the white orders were accidentally fulfilled with black phones because of a server error. So I think they really are recalling the first shipments and they'll have to start over. I hope they do overnight or something this time. And I hope they still have some white ones...

    Again? I dunno why, but this made me think of an old Steely Dan tune (lyrics slightly adjusted)...

    In November you go gunning for the phone and matching boarder
    And You click buy until you're done in but El Google kills your order
    Then you love a little white one but your hopes are met with sorrow
    They have not learned how to stock up so you must try again tomorrow

    And you go back, jack, and do it again.....

    Remember when people said no one would buy just a new color of a 6 month old phone? Yeah, so much for that.

    I love my black beauty.

      That's what she said (sorry, I had to!).

  • erd

    same issue with me. I call them and the responce was

    small number of customers were sent a ship confirmation with an
    incorrect tracking number on 5/31 and 6/3. In these cases the incorrect
    tracking number may indicate that the package is being returned to

    Please disregard this tracking number. Another ship
    confirmation with the correct tracking number will be emailed to you
    within 24 hrs. Please reference the tracking number in the 'Thank You'
    section of the ship confirmation.

    Please rest assured that your package’s arrival date is unaffected by the incorrect tracking number.

    It seems I'm not the only one who has had the 'return to sender' shipping issue. phew...

  • lewishnl

    It's still not even available in the UK. It makes me glad I got an 8GB black Nexus about a month or so ago. If I'd waited I'd be severely disappointed (still not free bumper or white nexus in the UK)

    A great product. Although I only knew through referrals.

  • MC Wong

    Great value for money. Using this phone since Jan to replace my galaxy s2. Looking forward to another LG nexus when I need to replace current phone. Hope Google and LG produce another.

  • Chris

    I got a new tracking email from Google last night, and apparently they reshipped a new phone overnight, scheduled to be delivered today....
