LG reported its fiscal fourth-quarter and annual earnings for 2012 and while the company did turn a profit of $80.75 million for the year, it took a large loss in the fourth quarter thanks to a one time charge related to pricing of cathode-ray tubes in the EU; handset revenue was led by the higher fourth quarter sales seen foir premium LTE handsets like the LG Optimus G...

Lg cannot mass produce the Nexus 4 because then it would be fierce competition with the other OEM's. Remember that Google is also heavily subsidizing the price and with the bang-for-buck value, all the other OEM's phone will have to share the limelight with the Nexus 4. If that were too happen, Google is going to have a bitter relationship with the OEM's. That's why the Nexus 4 keeps going out of stock. That's why you don't get the 300$ price point everywhere and that's why the phone is not being sold yet in my country...

I seriously dont think there's stocking issues because Google wants to make the other OEM's happy. If they did that on purpose.....how do you think that would make LG feel? They're running a business too.
The Nexus brand being popular works out better for Google. Making the manufacture of that phone happy works out better for Google.
With the rumors about the Moto X being sold thru the Play Store.....you really think they are gonna play this game with that phone? It wont be a Nexus I hear....but it is supposed to have the price point.

Lg Optimus G and Lg Nexus 4 is pretty soft. Samsung owns this space period.
