The Nexus 4’s low price tag resulted in overwhelming demand and the smartphone sold out across the globe shortly after it was made available. Google is believed to be heavily subsidizing the device and is offering it unlocked for an unheard of $299 with 8GB of storage and $349 for the 16GB model. Unfortunately, it has been almost impossible to get one and even those who placed an order on launch day have seen delays. The wait is finally coming to an end, however. Google (GOOG) is now notifying customers that open Nexus 4 orders will begin shipping this week, and better yet, the smartphone will once again be available for purchase from the Play Store starting today at 3:00 p.m. EST. The Nexus 4 is Google’s latest flagship smartphone, and while it lacks true LTE connectivity, the device is equipped with a quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.2 Jelly Bean.
