If you’ve been hemming and hawwing about whether to purchase the Nexus 5 through Google Play or not, then the decision just got a whole lot harder with the Google Play store now listing all storage options and colours of the Nexus 5 as ‘We are out of stock. Please check back soon’, the Black versions of the Nexus 5 were out of stock as of yesterday morning, but now the White has also sold out.
While the Nexus 4 took mere hours to sell out last year, the Nexus 5 lasted two and a half days. It took Google almost three months to resupply the Nexus 4 after they were innundated with orders last year with the phone only returning to sale through Google Play in January this year.
An expected retail launch or carrier launch through Telstra is now about your only option to get your hands on the handset if Google take around the same amount of time to top up stock levels, but even that could be held off as it was last year when Harvey Norman sold out of their initial allocation of stock and took over a month to replenish their supplies.
In the meantime, the 16GB Nexus 4 is the only Nexus phone you can currently purchase through Google Play.
