Currently there aren’t a whole lot of accessories available for the Nexus 4. The only accessory that launched with the Nexus 4 from Google was the bumper, which has been sold out since the day it went on sale, November 13th. While Google did show off the wireless charging orb to us back in late October when the Nexus 4 was announced, it has not been talked about since. But the bumper was made available on launch day and have been sold out since. That was until today. The Nexus 4 bumper made its return to the Play Store. Anyone taking bets on how long before the Bumper will be out of stock again?

Of course they are still $19.99 plus taxes and shipping. Which shipping is about $5.99. If you ask me it’s a bit pricey for a bumper, that basically covers the sides of the device. I’d rather pick up a TPU case, or a silicon case from Amazon, Seido or Cruzerlite but some of those cases are still pre-order only, unfortunately. Although the main thing the Bumper was designed for was to keep the glass on the back of the Nexus 4 from getting scratched, cracked or broken. As it raises the device when it’s sat down on a table. But if this is your thing, then you’ll want to head over to the Play Store ASAP and grab one before it’s gone, again.
Now this is only the US Play Store. If we follow the trend of the Nexus 4 coming back to the Play Store, the Bumper will probably appear in Canada next week along with Europe. That’s if Google has enough stock to get the bumpers into those regions.
So who’s rushing over the Play Store to grab their Bumper before it’s gone? Don’t be shy, let us know in the comments below. And if you’ve already received yours share your thoughts below as to how you like or dislike it.
