The hunt for the elusive LG Nexus 4 continues as people are greeted by messages that it is sold out when they try to get their hands on the LG Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store.
Just days ago, the LG Nexus 4 made its way back onto the Google Play Store in many countries and consumers also confirmed that they had got notifications that their devices were shipping.
