Google's Nexus 5 is officially sold out in Australia

Google has exhausted initial stocks of its new Nexus 5 Android smartphone, just two days after the device officially went on sale in Australia.
The smartphone went on sale through the Australian Google Play Store last Friday, but black and white models in both 16GB and 32GB variants are now listed as out of stock.
"We are out of stock. Please check back soon."
Good Gear Guide has contacted Google to clarify when the device would go back on sale in Australia but is yet to receive a response.
The 16GB model Nexus 5 sells for $399 while the 16GB model retails for $449.
There are currently no plans for Australian carriers to sell the phone, but manufacturer LG released a media statement last week saying further details on additional sales channels will be released once the device has completed "local network testing".
"Further information on the retail launch date, operator partner, pricing and sales channels will follow on completion of local network testing."
Google has been heavily promoting and selling its own-brand Android devices but the company has a history of stock shortages.
It severely struggled with Nexus 4 stock levels since its worldwide launch back in November 2012.
