10 minutes. That's how long the Nexus 4 was available yesterday in Spain until they got out of stock again.

Would love to get one but sadly AFAIK it doesn't support Sprint due to the lack of CDMA support. :(

I saw this yesterday and was going to grab one, but it the "ships when available," made it seem like it was still out of stock,

Does anyone know if these will work fine on straightalk? I believe they will.


today its now showing the "ships when available" message as it was yesterday. I saw that where it used to say "SOLD OUT".
So maybe its okay now.

weird you are getting that error. i would try again after sometime. I heard none having purchase issue especially in the US

even if it says ship when available many devices started shipping already.

The Play Store stated that it would ship in 2 to 3 weeks when I ordered it last week. It arrived 2 days after I placed my order. It actually arrived about 20 minutes after I saw the email stating that the order had been shipped. I was obviously shocked and elated.

Loving it so far. One thing that I noticed that doesn't get mentioned is how fast apps install. I had close to 100 apps on my previous phone (somehow) and after signing in, many of my apps were installing so fast that I barely had time to read which apps were being installed while looking in the pull-down notification screen. The whole process of re-downloading all of my apps only took a couple of minutes.

Edit: I should mention that Google really needs to either push developers to use Android Backup or automatically store app data. I have really enjoyed Titanium Backup over the years but backup and restore should be integerated into the OS and pretty much seamless at this point.
