Nexus 4 Bumpers are back in stock

We just recieved a tip that Google’s Nexus 4 bumpers are back in stock in the Play Store’s Devices section.

Once on the page, you might need to refresh a few times to make the “Add To Cart” button appear. Be sure you’re logged into your Google account.

Shipping appears to be a cool (or not-so-cool) $10.99, pushing the total bumper purchase price just north of $30. At that price you might want to consider other options – but if you need to complete your Nexus collection, now is your chance.

Are you interested in getting a Bumper? Were you able to order one? Let us know in the comments!

Before discovering the Nexus One, Jason thought he didn't need a smartphone. Now he can't bear to be without his Android phone. Jason hails from Sydney, Melbourne or Brisbane depending on his mood and how detailed a history you'd like. A web developer by day with an interest in consumer gadgets and electronics, he also enjoys reading comics and has a worryingly large collection of Transformers figures. He'd like to think he's a gamer, but his Wii has been in a box since he moved to Sydney, and his PlayStation Vita collection is quite lacking. Most mornings you'll find him tilting at various windmills on Twitter - follow @JM77 and say hi!

  • Wanted to get one for our 2 phones but the only options are ‘0’ or ‘1’, meaning you have to pay $62 to get 2 bumpers and 2 different orders. Not happy with that at all. End up getting 1 for the missus and I’ll just hold off for now.

  • Yes! Got one.Had to refresh few times….but Giddyup!

    Does anyone know if that with the Bumper, does it lift the physical phone off the surface? For example, if I laid the phone on a flat surface (with the bumper on), face up or down, will the screen or back of the phone touch the surface??

    • Nils Mueller

      Wondering the same because the phone is 9.1 mm and so is the case

        I ordered one anyway – taking a chance. Once I get it I will try and remember to update this post with my findings. 🙂

          Did any of you get a shipping confirmation or anything? Mine still shows as Pending since Tuesday, on my bank account and PlayStore.

  • Mohammad Danish

    Just bought one now, still appears to be in stock. Got an email as well, no issues here.

  • Just get some Sugru and form any shape you want.

  • Andrew McCreadie

    Got one now all i need is for the phone to back in stock ?

    • 🙂 That’s a little sad.
      You own a rubber outline of the phone you can’t buy.

  • Well… soon enough 5 dollar copies of it will be for sale in those stalls at the local Westfield.

    • Sean Royce

      Except they cost about $20-40 and you can just jump on ebay and grab one for $5 or less.

  • Matt

    When I refresh the device page these got from In Stock to Sold Out and back and forth randomly.. GREAT! Bodes well for the Nexus 4 ‘relaunch’.
