Google U.K. chief says Google Nexus 4 orders promised before Christmas will be processed next week
After Google UK & Ireland Managing Director Dan Cobley read enough complaints from irate customers waiting for their Google Nexus 4 to arrive, the executive responded. First, he made an apology to those who were affected by the delay, and then offered a refund of the shipping costs to those who did not receive the phone within the posted 3-5 days delivery window. The executive also said that orders that had a delivery estimate before Christmas will be processed this coming week.

Those who have missed out on buying the phone because of the low levels of inventory available from Google or from carriers like T-Mobile, have complained about LG, the manufacturer of the phone. Those that have pointed their finger at the Korean based company will be interested in hearing that Cobley called supplies from LG "scarce and erratic." The first sale of the device from the Google Play Store sold out in a half hour while the second left orders on backorder for a month after just one day.

In the U.S. where the Google Nexus 4 is also sold out, some T-Mobile stores that did not have the phone the first time around, are receiving marketing material as speculation has arisen that those stores will be offering the handset before Christmas.

google is so unfair........they are trying to make money from the other countries where google play isn't there, for example in india, galaxy note 2 is gonna be available for 34,000 in jan, and nexus 4 will launch in india in jan for 34,000(8gb version) its just like an opposite to robin hood and apple products are better when compared to nexuses.....the ipad mini is available for 20,000 in a few online stores and the nexus 7(16 gb) is priced at 20,000 in india.....and apple products have a great resale value, nexuses don't.....ipad 4 and the nexus 10 also cost the same..... so in countries where google play isn't there, its better to get a samsung phone or an apple iphone/ipad google is very partial....its too good for a few countires and too bad for the others, they aren't interested in launching the play store, the nexuses come very late at a higher price than the other flagship phones....the nexus s is priced at $400..could it get worse?

Galaxy Nexus for $400 is what I've heard, although considering high adoption rates of Android here (in India) recently, I hope Google launches Play Store here.

same thing like my country. The Nexus 4 will come in at about $620 US Dollar. It's really not cheap for us living in country without Google Play Store.
