Nexus 4 available on Google Play... from 5pm today

Google has confirmed the Nexus 4 is back in stock and available to buy from Google Play today, Tuesday 4 December.

The latest Nexus handset, manufactured by LG, went on sale though Google Play on 13 November, but sold out so quickly that there was widespread frustration from the awaiting eager Android customers.

Well the new target time for all those who missed out the first time around is 5pm today, Tuesday 4 December for those in the UK.

Google alerted those who had signed-up for more information via email, so you can expect that devices will sell-out very quickly again.

The Nexus 4 has seen favourable reviews, offering plenty of power at a price that undercuts many rivals, such as the HTC One X+ or the Samsung Galaxy S III.

On the whole, it's a well-constructed handset that performs very well, although there has been the odd teething problem, such as the missing month of December - now corrected - and a general acceptance that the battery performance isn't great and the camera could be better.

But priced at £239 for the 8GB version, or £279 for the 16GB, you certainly get a lot of phone for your money.

Expect crowds like the Boxing Day sales, and turn your browser to Google Play.

UPDATE 1: Stock has arrived as announced but surprisingly the 8GB model shows a delivery time of 4-5 weeks, missing Christmas. The 16GB model, however, could be a Christmas cracker, with 1-2 weeks given for delivery.  

UPDATE 2: The 16GB model is now showing 4-6 weeks for delivery, so we're guessing that immediate stock has sold and the rest is in production. By our reckoning it took about 45 mins to sell the 16GB models offering 1-2 week delivery, but there seem to be a lot of happy customers out there.
