Google has exhausted initial stocks of its Nexus 4 Android smartphone less than an hour after the device went on sale yesterday.

The latest flagship Android phone went on sale through Google's Play Store just after midday yesterday. However, both the 8GB and 16GB models were listed as "coming soon" less than an hour later.

The current Play Store page notes that customers can "sign up to be notified by email when Nexus 4 becomes available."

PC World Australia contacted Google to clarify when the device would go back on sale in Australia but is yet to receive a response. The 8GB model Nexus 4 sells for $349 while the 16GB model retails for $399.

There are currently no plans for Australian carriers to sell the phone, but manufacturer LG says that the 16GB model will sell through retailers at a later, unannounced date. However, there's no word yet on which retailers will stock the device.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries

MSI GS75

As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
