As of the time of this post, the LG-made Nexus 5 is back in stock in the Google Play Store (with some limitations). Only the 32GB model is back in stock. Also, the red version of the 32GB model is also already gone, so only the black or white model is available.

The other sad bit of truth is that the phone doesn't yet have Android 5.0 Lollipop on it yet; it still comes with Android 4.4.4 KitKat. Of course, that is probably to be expected since Lollipop isn't scheduled to launch until November 3rd. It is possible that devices launched closer to that date could end up with the newer version of Android on them, but it's also likely they will simply get the OTA update pushed out like the rest of us.
