Sales of the new Google Nexus 4 phone are off to a stupendous start. Of course, due to the time difference, Australia and the UK had the Nexus 4 launch before it hit other parts of the world. In both of those countries the phone is already sold out. In fact, in both countries, the device sold out within minutes of being launched. In Australia the pricing is a bit different than it will be in the US. The 8GB version sells for $349.99 and the 16GB version goes for $399.99. There is also a $19.99 shipping charge for each device. In the UK the price for the 8GB model starts at £240.

It's possible that this sellout is more of an issue with supply rather than demand, but it could be a little of both. Regardless, it's great to see the new device get a strong start. It actually makes sense that the device might actually do better internationally than it will in the US. This is because the lack of LTE means less in other countries where it isn't as prevalent.

The Nexus 10 Tablet is selling well, but is not sold out in either of these countries.
