It’s a big day for Google. Beginning today, the 13th of November, Google’s Nexus 4, Nexus 10, and Nexus 7 3G model are going on sale. The first units have arrived in Australia and Europe, and unlike the iPad mini launch, the 16GB Nexus 4 sold out pretty easily in just 22 minutes in Australia. The same phenomenon is happening in U.K. A few U.K. customers took their concerns to Twitter and said that the Nexus 4 is now out of stock in the Google Play U.K. store.

It’s even said that the 8GB Nexus 4, which is the cheapest among all models, sold out in just 15 minutes after going on sale. Other U.K. customers are reportedly complaining that Google Play U.K. is getting very slow and unresponsive, possibly due to the number of orders it is processing. “Google Play store is a joke – puts 2 Nexus 4 in basket, then none, then sold out,” one particular customer tweeted. As of this writing, the Nexus 4 8GB and 16GB models are listed as “Coming Soon” on Google Play. We’re wondering how the U.S. will react to the availability of Google’s flagship Nexus devices.
