The new saying will be "I bet they'll sell like the Nexus 4". ;P

Can't wait to see the sales on the Nexus 4.

Numbers won't be spectacular really.
I think LG can produce 3-5 million units per quarter, at best.

When the phone was the 5th most sold phone in the UK after selling for just 1 hour... I think it's clear that the demand is huge, and that they can't cope with it. At least after Christmas it won't be shown permanently "in stock"

It will be In Stock, but with a 5+ week shipping time. :-(

I hope you are right, but I'm not optimistic.
First batch: 13th November, sold in 15 min
Second Batch: 03rd December, sold in less than half an hour.
I couldn't even see the phone as "available" yet.

This is starting to be a joke. By the time the Nexus 4 is really available, the GS IV (5 inch 1080p screen, S4 Pro, 2 Gb RAM, LTE) will be shipping with no wait time. And the GS IV will have swappable battery and memory.

Well, given the shipping delay for the Nexus 4, by the time an ordered unit arrives, the Sammy will have already received its update. ;-)

GSIV won't have S4 Pro, it'll have the Exynos 5
