Just recently, Google Play changed the Nexus 4’s delivery time from one to two weeks to two to three weeks. Before that, new owners reported to get their phones in less than forty-eight hours after making the purchase. Now, the estimated delivery time is back to one to two weeks.
The first time the phone went live on Google Play back in November it was sold out in less than thirty minutes. Weeks after, it went live again, but was sold out in less than twenty-four hours. Google blamed LG for having inconsistencies with supply. LG also blamed Google for not anticipating that the Nexus 4 would be a smash hit. The handset went live for third time and has been available for days. It seems LG and Google have solved their supply issues.
If you’re interested in getting the Nexus 4, Google Play is selling the 8GB version for £240, while the 16GB version will set you back £280. The phone is also available via network operators, but nowhere near the bargain prices offered in Google’s online store.
Despite its affordable price tag, the Nexus 4 sports a 4.7-inch screen and a quad-core processor. Its spec sheet trumps that of the Galaxy S3 at almost half the price. Better yet, it runs the latest version of Google’s operating system, Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean). Since this is a Nexus device, you are sure to get the latest updates as soon as Google rolls them out.
