If we were to sum up this day, we’d call it a “Nexus 4 day.” That’s because Google is starting to push Android 4.2.1 to the Nexus 4, as well as the Nexus 10 and the Nexus 7. We also learned that eager customers can only order up to 2 Nexus 4 units on Google Play, albeit the limitation hasn’t been confirmed. And probably the best news today came from Google who announced that the Nexus 4 is available again on Google Play starting 12:00 noon.
Customers are speculating that the device may be “out of stock” because they can no longer get it on Google Play. It turns out that Google is just struggling to keep up with the high traffic. As seen on the screenshot above, Google has since posted a notice on Google Play saying, “Google Play is currently experiencing very high traffic. Nexus 4 is not sold out and will still be available for purchase. Please try again shortly. Thank you for your patience.” It’s interesting to hear that Google also experiences problems in handling traffic, being the Internet giant that it is, with its humongous servers and data centers.
