If you’ve been hanging out for the Australian Play Store to receive stock of LG’s Nexus 4, you might not have to wait much longer.
Android Police yesterday reported a tip stating that the Nexus 4 would become available in the US Play Store today, which proved to be correct. According to the same tipster, the device will be available as of 8AM AEDT tomorrow morning in the Australian Play Store. With a hit ratio of 1-for-1, we think it’s a good sign that the phone will be on sale tomorrow.
Because the Nexus 4 is such a highly sought-after phone, it might be a good idea to set an alarm to remind yourself to check the site. The times that you will need are:
- 8AM AEDT for NSW, VIC, TAS and the ACT
- 7:30AM ACDT for SA
- 7AM AEST for QLD
- 6:30AM ACST for NT
- 5AM AWST for WA
That’s quite an ask for our Perth-based readers. So far the phone seems to have remained on sale in the US Play Store though, so maybe this time it’s here to stay.
Will you buy a Nexus 4 tomorrow? How early will you get up for it? Tell us in the comments!
Edit: There’s some confusion over whether Android Police got the AU timezone wrong, as they listed “EST”. These times could be 1 hour early – but it’s best to be 1 hour early than 1 hour late. – Jason
