Google: Nexus 4 will be available again "in the coming weeks"
0. phoneArena 14 Nov 2012, 04:57 posted on
As planned, the highly anticipated LG Nexus 4 smartphone landed on the Google Play store yesterday, but the ordering process was a pretty bumpy ride for everyone who tried to purchase one, us included. The overwhelming demand easily crashed Google's servers to the frustration of a great fraction of buyers who were unable to finalize their orders. Currently, the smartphone is officially sold out, and the Google Nexus 10 tablet is in low supply as well...

I really want a Nexus phone but, I have had horrible experiences with LG phones. I'll be waiting on another manufacturer.

well that's probably b/c LG has a horrible horrible software support, but this Nexus 4 is supported by google so you'll be the first one to get the updates!!! (i also had horrible experience with LG G2x but i'm going towards this one b/c it's a NEXUS device!!)

Wow, "in the coming weeks". Well, let's hope this doesn't turn into another episode similar to when the Galaxy S3 was initially being released to carriers (AT&T, Sprint, & Verizon) in the States.

Big G's product planning here has been abysmal. I am tempted to think they ordered an initial batch based on a pricing model comparable to the Galaxy S3 but a bit cheaper - say $500-550 per handset. The suddenly someone come sup with a new pricing model, focusing on getting people immersed in the pure Big G world, and suddenly the up front price becomes secondary. Then the decision is made to drop the price to the insane levels we have today...and no really joins the dots as to what this will do to projected demand.

These guys clearly weren't thinking, of course everyone is gonna want a Quad core with 2GB of RAM for $350, its an insane bargain even an idiot wouldn't refuse, coming weeks is poor IMO, either way I'll get one its just a matter of time

How did they come up short? Apparently the demand was much higher than they expected, so they sold out in a short amount of time... Not too hard to accept.

Between the order processing FAIL and the limited supplies released, Google gets the Step-on-the-Rake Award (where the rake handle flys up and hits the award recipient in the face) for 4Q2012. And we are just into the quarter, no less. Wow. Nokia was an early favorite based on their ham-handed release of photos allegedly taken with an L920 PureView camera, but Google reached deep to blow past Nokia.
