You don't need flash, I ordered from a Nexus 7 which has a version of android that doesn't support flash, at least mine doesn't

In my country (Belgium) we can't buy the Nexus 4 nor the Nexus 10. Europe is a developing region to google (apart from France and Germany then). LG has decided not to sell the Nexus 4 at all, not even outside the Playstore. So get lost LG! I'll never buy any of your products! Discriminating s*ns of b*tches!

The Nexus 10 is form Samsung and LG did make the Nexus 4 but google is the one selling them. Just like any products you buy, they may contain LG parts. This one product called nexus 4 however was a lot of LG Parts. :-) Best of luck to everyone and remember maybe its a good thing you couldn't get the nexus 4/10 this week because now you have time to look for a good case before you accidentally drop your new nexus the 1st day you get it like my friend. No worries the phone was fine just dented a little

Ok, I mixed up with Samsung and LG (my bad ;-) ) But LG is the one pulling the strings on whether or not the Nexus 4 is sold out of the Playstore or not. Why do you think it won't be sold in Taiwan? Why do you think the US price outside the Playstore is $499? That's not determined by Google in any way! If you're not convinced yet, it was LG who first told us that the device was going to come at the end of this month and it was LG who told that the device won't be sold in the Benelux at all. If this was up to Google, why didn't they make all the announcements? I am not an idiot and I know that LG produces parts for many other vendors. They make excellent screens for Apple e.g. Apart from the fact that your post was quite offensive, you just ridiculed my actual point here: I am angry! It's not fair that Google decided to allow sale of the Nexus 4 in just a few countries (through Playstore). And if sales are allowed by LG outside the playstore, the price is set unreasonably high! Point is that either way the European mainland always has to pay more for the same product (except for France and Germany, which are apparently of more value to international companies). The only exception is ASUS for now! They had the decency to sell the Nexus 7 for the same price as it can be found in the Playstore. Thank you for that, ASUS, at least one fair company! If ASUS can, so can LG! But they won't, cause all they want is to make lots of profit! The way I see it, this was their opportunity to make a good name here, and they've just ruined all by themselves! Good job, LG!

What about the nexus 10? Thats all samsung and Google, you cant blame it all on LG if ever the Nexus 10 wont sell in your country. If google sells the the Nexus 7 in your country then I believe its only a matter of time before you also get to buy the 4 and 10. Even the iPhone5's cant keep up with demands, how do you expect a lesser known phone to? LG just makes the phones like any other product, the playstore is ran by google only, i doubt LG, ASUS, HTC, and Samsung have any input on who gets to buy first besides their own country.

I am sorry, but what country or planet are you from? I already apologized for the mix-up with Samsung! Now to get this straight: ASUS is selling the Nexus 7 in the Benelux and Samsung decided not to sell the Nexus 10, LG decided not to sell the Nexus 4. Google decided not to offer the Playstore for devices here. Clear now? And for the record: these manufactureres do have a say about pricing outside the playstore and can decide themselves whether or not THEY will sell the devices and at what price. So stop acting like you know it all, like I would be an idiot! I have the right to be pissed off at LG! Cause they're the ones responsible for the Nexus 4!

Started the process as soon as this post went up, and just got a continued circle of error messages on two browsers and countless attempts. Great job Google! Can't buy it in any store, and your website is crap. This might push me to just get a Galaxy III instead. Just walk into a Best Buy, and voila. Phone in hand. What a concept.

you can buy it through Tmobile stores tomorrow. It's just more expensive since google isnt subsidizing it.

So many phones out. So many choices. I don't know what to do. :-/ I think I'm just going to wait for next year's rumors lol... Probably not. I'll probably buy this and the Note 2.

Waaait if you got a confirmation email by google, does that mean you purchased it? It says my credit card has not yet been charged but it will once it's shipped? :O

Same thing happened in Spain this morning. Thirty minutes of error messages, server unresponsiveness and chaos followed by a generic "available shortly" message when they run out of stock

Ha! It sold out! Should be a bitch slap on Verizon's face (mostly all carriers face) for causing trouble. Their nexus sacrifice is paying up in the end

Here is why Apple will fall, very very soon. They are selling the unlocked iPhone 4 for $450. The iPhone 4! Not even the 4S. This phone is more powerful than the iPhone 5, and it's $300. Apple's marketing strategy will fail now. Enough is enough.

nexus 4 suck

I agree. What's the point of having a "great" phone and not have enough of them at launch. I think they jumped the gun with low actual production units. Nexus 4 doesn't suck, but google sucks for announcing the phone, making you wait 2 weeks and not have any units at launch. Please post if/when you receive your nexus 4. I think there's a conspiracy. Google made a phone with 8 cores, 4 gb of ram, 64 gb HD and lasts 3 days on one charge. It's so much better than >>>>>>iPhone 5 but you'll never know cause there aren't any available.
