Google's Nexus 4 smartphone back on sale

The Google Nexus 4 smartphone is back again in the Google Play online store after being sold out since early December.

The popular Android smartphone went on sale in November, but it's had trouble keeping up with the demand. When it first launched in early November, the phone sold out online within a matter of minutes.

The Nexus 4, Google's fourth smartphone, returned in late November, but was available only for a few days before selling out yet again.

At that point, the $299 8-gigabyte version of the smartphone was listed as "SOLD OUT" while the 16 GB $349 version said it would take five to six weeks before it could ship.

But now, nearly two months later, the Nexus 4 is back.

Both the 8 GB and 16 GB versions of the phone have a listed shipping wait time of one to two weeks.

If you're interested in the phone, you might want to get it now -- as the Nexus 4 tends to sell out fast. It works with AT&T; and T-Mobile carriers.

In addition to buying it on Google Play, the phone is also available on T-Mobile's website and in its stores.
