Well that didn’t take long. Google+ user, and Australian, John Fanavans was able to purchase a 16GB Nexus 4 moments ago, but the play store already has the 16GB devices sold out, and only the 8GB version is available now.
Above is his receipt proving he made the purchase. This should answer all the people wondering if the 16GB was even released.
Now to figure out if I should stay up until midnight, or get some sleep now and wake up at 3am.
This does not necessarily mean the 16GB version IS sold out, just that it’s no longer available.
