Trying to buy a Nexus 4? Might be impossible -- they're in stock, Google tells me, but high traffic is causing problems in the Google Play store.

Anybody manage to buy one?

Exactly.  I think they programmed a race condition so that it displays SOLD OUT when they're servers are busy.  Smart actually, otherwise nobody could buy anything.
Not sure if this was intentional, but I chuckled at the update from the future to tell me it is going to still be sold out at 1:40pm PST.
As much as I want to take credit for clairvoyance, that was supposed to be 1:04 p.m. Haha. FIXED. Thank you, Richard.
Finally got my order processed after three hours of pressing the proceed button. You have to be patient.
