Are more Google Nexus 4 orders about to get shipped?

pending charge on their credit card when they checked into their Google Play Store account, while the date on the account page updated to December 27th. The change in credit card status occured for those who ordered both the 8GB and 16GB models, and not everyone waiting on the phone has had their status updated.
While a change in credit card status is far from definitive proof that the phone is shipping, after weeks of no changes to these accounts, it does seem that there is progress in the right direction. And yes, if you ordered the unit as a gift, it will be a belated holiday present. But when you think about what you have ordered and how much you are paying without having to get locked up for two-years, all of the headaches and heartaches just seem to melt away, don't they.
Meanwhile, the Nexus Availability Checker app we told you about on Thursday, continues to show all devices and accessories as being sold out.

Got the 16gb for my son for Christmas. I didn't want to commit to a contact for his first phone. The T-mobile $30/month plan with 100 minutes talk send unlimited data/text is perfect. Tested at home, was getting 7-9Mbps down, only 1-2Mbps up. Not bad at all. Its a damned nice phone. If it weren't for the lack of storage, I'd choose it over my SGS3. Beautiful screen, fluid, smooth operation.

what? no comment in the article to point the low production of this device that has people waiting for their orders like phonearena was quick to point out with the lumia 920 over and over? or the low supply making it seem like the google nexus 4 has high demand? of course not. cant say anything negative towards google or android. the bias is strong.

I'm pretty sure it isn't low production. It took me over five hours to order it online. That was with near constant screen refreshed. Demand is very strong for this phone. You don't have to like it, but you do have to live with it.

Prefer the build quality of the N4 over the S3 anyday plus don't even get me started on Touchwiz/Nature UI...jeez! Bought mine from Carphonewarehouse albeit at a £100 premium over Google's price but worth it and loving it. Only gripe from me is limited 16gb memory. On a related tack, Google really needs to kick LG's ass to match demand and manufacture these handsets, what a mistake using LG has been. Next Google phone should be produced by either Sony or HTC although I would settle for Motorola subject to design input from someone else preferably Sony! Haw, just let Sony build the thing and they can take my hard earned cash!!

touchwiz wizs all over stock android. the n4 is buggy as sheet with a sucky camera. back glass scratches very easy also wifi radio has issues. lg cannot put it all together smoothly like sammy and htc. just sayin my experience. instant updates and price r not good enough reasons to buy this half baked phone.

I like sony devices, I have a Walkman Z and JUST got an Xperia Tablet S and I'm floored by the build quality WOW, damn shame I'm with Verizon and Sony hasn't made much for us other than the Xperia Play. I like Motorola too, but I have to admit the Xyboards I've played with are no match for the epic beauty and power of the Xperia tablet S, I am VERY impressed however with the lapdock and webtop feature of the RAZR, my internet is down for the time being and am using it as a computer DAMN impressive!

If you have ordered a Nexus 4 and have yet to receive it, email google. I ordered 2 Nexus 4s on November 27th, one 8gb and one 16gb. I emailed google with a general question about billing on December 15th, on the 17th they gave me confirmation that my order had been shipped, I received my phones on tuesday decmeber 18th at 9:30pm mst, one interesting thing is that they sent me 2 16gig nexus 4s instead of what I had paid for. Just due to the way this played out, I think google is expediting orders for people that inquire about their orders via email, and they may cut corners (such as sending a 16gig in leiu of a backordered 8gig) to get you your order to keep you from bitching.

'Twas a Happy Christmas for me. :) Ordered on the 4th of December via Google Play UK. I accepted the fact that I'll probably get the phone later for the holidays. Fortunately, I got it on time! 24th of December past lunch time! Thumbs up for Google and the Nexus 4! :D :D :D

I ordered mine on launch day, got the 3 week backorder email and received my phone on the 27th or 28th of November. It's an amazing phone for the price! I've owned an s3, both AT&T version and International version, and the Nexus 4 blows it away! Of course, this is just my opinion and everyone is entitled to their own opinion, but I love stock Android. I hate Touchwiz, Sense and any other skinned version of Android. I did like the GS3, but I preferred my Galaxy Nexus over it. I don't mind low storage because I use Google Play Music and upload my pics to Dropbox or Box(free 50GB box account with the Nexus 4!!!) and I found a sweet app yesterday that will make a nandroid backup and upload it to Dropbox or Google Drive so it's not on your phone. Freed up a lot of space that way. Out of 13GB total, I still have 7.75GB left. I could've gotten away with the 8GB version lol! If you don't like the phone...good for you. I love it and so do a lot of people. To those of you waiting, you will love it when you get it, and won't believe you only paid $350 for it off contract.
