This afternoon it appears that Google has for some reason removed the Nexus 4 Wireless charging orb from the Australian Google Play Store. When the wireless charging orb first appeared on the Google Play Store 10 days ago it came with a status of ‘This device is not for sale at this time’, later that day it then changed status to ‘Not available in your country’ and now apparently it has been completely removed.
I spoke with Google and asked them if there was any reason they could provide behind the removal and if there was any chance that we could see the orb returned to the Play Store and perhaps sold and they replied :
We’re always interested in making our products and services widely available, but we have nothing to announce at this time.
Calls to Googles customer support line also resulted in no further information other than that the orb is currently not being offered for sale in Australia at this time.
Unfortunately, this is about what we expect with regards to updates on stock, Google tends to just update the store when stock is available. I personally really want one but we’ll just have to wait and see.
Were you wanting to purchase the Nexus 4 wireless charging orb?
