Google (GOOG) has revealed that its latest flagship smartphone has seen “overwhelming demand” and is now backordered. The Internet giant quickly sold out of its Nexus 4 stock across the globe after the device was made available on the Play Store on November 13th. The Mountain View-based company on Thursday sent emails to select users who purchased the device to notify them of their order status. The smartphone is now expected to ship within three weeks. Google created a frenzy when it announced the carrier-unlocked Nexus 4 with a starting price of $299 earlier this month. The 4.7-inch handset is equipped with a 720p HD display, a quad-core processor and runs Google’s latest mobile operating system version, Android 4.2. BGR reviewed the Nexus 4 last week and called it the best Android phone ever created. Google’s email follows below.
