eBay dons the Nexus 4 with high-demand sales restrictions |

Well, it has been so popular that eBay has deemed the demand high enough that they're enforcing sales restrictions on the quad-core smartphone. These restrictions are normally places on hot items like the iPad or the Nintendo Wii, with the rules covering just how many phones a seller can list.

You may list a Google Nexus 4 with some limitations:

Authorized resellers will be allowed to list an unlimited number of items per week.

eBay Top Rated Sellers will be allowed to list up to 8 items per week.

All sellers meeting minimum performance standards will be allowed to list 4 items per week.

New sellers who've confirmed their personal information may list 1 item per week.

Note: Sellers not meeting minimum performance standards or that haven't confirmed their personal information will not be allowed to list the Google Nexus 4 during the post-launch sale period.

Google Nexus 4 Domain Name and Email Address Sales

Sellers offering Google Nexus 4-related domain names or email addresses for sale on eBay will be allowed up to 4 listings per week.

This action is usually reserved for fraud prevention, which is good to see on from eBay on the Nexus 4. Did you score a Nexus 4? What do you think of it?
