The LG Nexus 4 remains out of stock in the Google Play Store and eBay shoppers are paying a premium of up to twice the retail value for the Nexus 4.
The Nexus 4 16GB unlocked Android smartphone runs Android 4.2 and retails for $349 on the Google Play Store where it sold out in the first day. The $299 8GB Nexus 4 model also sold out on the first day and is commanding high prices on eBay.
Smartphone shoppers who can’t wait for Google to stock the Nexus 4 in the Play Store should expect to pay around $500 for the 8GB LG Nexus 4 on eBay or on Craigslist.
The 16GB Nexus 4 commands a higher price, but can be found for as low as $575. Many completed listings show $629 as the going rate for a 16GB model.
The LG Nexus 4 is currently out of stock on the Google Play Store and on T-Mobile, which mans users that can’t wait can only turn to third-party services like eBay and Craigslist.
Google did not respond to a request for comment on when the LG Nexus 4 would be back in stock in the Google Play, a task that is compounded by backorders for users that ordered on the first day. The Nexus 7 is back in stock, but the Nexus 4 remains listed as out of stock with no way to sign up for alerts.
Google promised that the Nexus 4 stock would return to the Google Play store in the coming weeks, so there is hope that the Nexus 4 will go on sale through Google by mid December.
The video below provides a look at the LG Nexus 4 hardware and what comes in the box.
