For those of you who live in the U.S., Canada, or Germany getting your hands on the Google Nexus 4 isn't going to be a challenge anymore as the smartphone is back in stock. Consumers in the UK, France, Spain, and Australia can also rejoice as per reports, the Nexus 4 will be in stock from Jan. 30 and Jan. 31.
Tech site Droid-Life received a tip off from an anonymous source that the Nexus 4 would be available for purchase via the Google Play Store in the UK, France, Spain, and Australia.
"Our "birdie" from last night that helped us break the news that the Nexus 4 would return to the Google Play store this morning at around 9:00AM (which happened) has informed us that it should be available in a handful of other countries tomorrow morning as well. The UK, France, Spain and Australia are up next," reported Droid-Life.
According to the report, the Nexus 4 will be available via the Google Play Store in the aforementioned countries as follows:
- The UK: Jan. 30 3PM GMT
- France: Jan. 30 4PM CET
- Spain: Jan. 30 4PM CET

A few days ago, Google's CEO Larry Page had averred that improving the supply of the Nexus 4 was a priority.
"Clearly, there's work to be done managing our supply better, as well as building a great customer experience. And that is a priority for the teams," said the CEO during the earnings call.
Additionally, LG had promised that the Nexus 4 supply would catch up with demand by mid-February. With the smartphone getting back in stock in the U.S. and Canada and other countries set to follow suit, it seems that Google and LG are working towards keeping their promise and focusing on the Nexus 4 supply issues.
Update: The Google Play Store in the UK now shows that the 8GB and 16GB versions are now available and will ship in one to two weeks.
