More Google Nexus 4 units to ship this week

More Google Nexus 4 units to ship this week
Those who had ordered the sizzling hot Google Nexus 4 must have felt like someone had reached into their chest and ripped out their heart when the news came out that Google was expecting as much as a 3 week delay to fulfill some of the orders placed for the handset. But for some of those waiting for the device to arrive, all is forgiven. An email from Google was received on Monday by some who have ordered the latest stock Android smartphone, informing them that another batch of phones is about to be shipped this week. Google informed those who received the missive that tracking and shipping information was to follow in an upcoming email.

Google added in the email that it will bill purchasers for the entire amount of the phone once it is shipped. It will then credit buyers for the shipping costs within seven business days. And while this is potentially great news for those who already have ordered the phone, there are a large number of people who have been waiting for inventory to return to the Google Play Store. The reason has to do with the incredible price of of $349 on the site for the 16GB unlocked model of the phone. When you can find it in stock at T-Mobile or Carphone Warehouse, or other retailers, the same exact phone is priced at $499.

We can't say for sure how much pent-up demand for the Google Nexus 4 remains at the Google Play Store, but it probably is going to require a few cycles of replenishing inventory, selling out, replenishing inventory and selling out again before demand is sated.

haha you seem annoyed, stop taking it so serious. god your not attached to the damn thing why cant you lot admit its an uninspired device. it offered nothing new...something you lot slate every nw device not on android for but when its an android device not giving something new its fine....the double standards on here are laughable its not a great device without question, its a good device for the price. just like the mid range nokia's are good for the price. doesnt make them great google/LG dropped the ball on this they could have done better even for the price it it btw i aint dissapointed what it lacks doesnt effect me

in your opinion its a great deal and phone... and again the price is the main factor but if you wanna think that its fine, to each there own but you cant state it as fact when its not

11. XPERIA-KNIGHT unregistered

the fact is you are disappointed cuz this phone lacks lte and more storage.........and the OTHER fact is, which you refuse to acknowledge, is if you want more you must "pay" more......... And i will say this plainly........this phone was not made with people LIKE YOU in mind.......have a good night man........but remember this is a GREAT device with or without your opinion

not made for people like me....so know your saying im not a valuable customer for google....you gonna start ruling those who dont agrre with you out. lucky you dont run a business with that mindset the nexus 4 was priced like this to target more then just the niche market. so it was aimed at everyone. all your doing now is defending it for what it lacks and funnily without me even bringing up what it lacks, your real defensive its not great, face it if this nexus 4 was a apple or nokia device you would be saying the opposite, how it needs more how it offers nothing new how it isnt optimised and the price doesnt justify this your mindset is what you say is fact what i say is an opinion....pretty arrogant i must say

I'd have to say that the worst thing about this phone from my time using it is its display. It's pretty washed out with its color reproduction and is easily beat out by the One X and the Galaxy S3. It's high resolution too, but the size of the screen is really inhibited by the dumb on screen Android buttons that Google decided to start integrating in ICS. They take up wayyyy too much necessary screen space and make the Nexus 4's screen look smaller and weaker than that of the competition. That's just my opinion of course, I'm sure a ton of other PA readers will disagree with me, especially regarding the software buttons.

"Thanks for choosing Google devices. Due to acute device shortage and overwhelming demand we are NOT able to successfully process your order. You'll also receive an email from Google Wallet shortly confirming this cancellation. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience caused." If you’d like to place a new order, please visit play.google.com." That's the email I got yesterday! First, they push me back by 3 weeks, then after I have sold my Galaxy Nexus, they do this to me! How I hate Google right now!

why did you sell your phone before having your new one in your hand, sorry but the stupidity lies with you

Posts: 6; Member since: Nov 27, 2012

It was a strategic decision... Was getting more for the device right now than what I would get in a month or two... not sure that's stupidity by human standards...

Nope its still stupidity, you can't blame Google for you not having a phone.

Well, the last time I checked stupidity did not mean selling a phone when the price is high... definitions might have changed...

Posts: 2347; Member since: Aug 28, 2012

haha no stupidity is selling your only phone before recieving your new one and then having a rant blaming google for you having no phone

Wow... man! you are so wise!... where on god's great green earth does it say that a rant is always and always MORE than 2 lines? So which school do you go to "kid"? :D

lol your actually showing yourself for the immature arrogant little person your are, ive not ranted, see when you blamed google for your stupidity thats the rant there. your one of those people that blame everyone else when you do something wrong.guessing your 12-13 any older and its just sad and you dont have to question my education, question your own seeing as your logic was to sell your old phone before recieving your new one then to come on here and blame a company that had no knowledge of you selling your phone.............think lack of logic atcually you need some help well i can say im wiser then you, and i dont consider myself wise which shows how low you are
