8GB Nexus 4 sells out on Google Play, and it isn't coming back

After Google gave its Nexus 4 a $100 price cut last week, the 8GB version of the phone is now sold out on the Play store. It appears that the price reduction was more of a clearance sale, however, as Google tells The Verge that the cheaper model will not be restocked.

The 16GB variant is still available for $249, and the 8GB version may remain on the Play store in other countries while stocks last, but it looks like those in the US have missed their chance to pick up a sub-$200 smartphone from Google. The Nexus 4 was originally announced last October and lacks LTE connectivity, so a future update could well be in the cards.
