Not a lot of people are going to cacnel their order because of the long wait and google know they have a huge wait line. Welk thats my guess

    Getting negative press about a device that people cannot buy and not offering any expected availability date is in no way more worthwhile than Google & LG producing and selling the phone. This is losing money as people become frustrated and impatient and buy another device. If these companies wanted to captilize on revenue it would have been sold effectively during the holiday season. It wasn't.

    Smart companies can still make silly mistakes, which is exactly what this is: a mistake.

    We will know in time. The internet is full of wannabe Sherlock Holmes and sleuths. Somebody is going to bust this story open wider than the road to hell.
    Still. the N4 is the sexiest device out there. Am rocking a pantech flex until Google decides to bring in more stock

    All I know is that this LG Nexus 4 is an extremely top notch phone and surprised the sh*t out of me. I was very skeptical with LG when announced but this has made me reconsider them as a brand.

    Any press is good press. Kind of. Pretty sure michael jackson dying gave him a lot of fans. I for one didn't listen that much to michael jackson but after he died I listened to him more.
    Nexus 4 is also the top notch phone out there on the market now, I'm not going to buy another phone because of the low price of the Nexus 4

    You say that comfortably from a Nexus 4. For many others time may be a factor and with zero concrete evidence to suggest an availability date, producing a limited number of this product isn't benefitting Google or LG in any way.

    Low price is good, but convenience is often times a more pressing issue.

    We all played the same game with ordering this phone. It's a phone for crying out loud. If it's too much for people to handle then go buy something else. I had a SGS2 before my Nexus 4 and if I had to wait an extra month or 2 I would have. If you can't then go get one of the other 10 phones available. Sheesh. Such crazy whining about this.

    i might be in the minority here but i would like to see a nexus from Sony. IMO, their designs are beautiful. too bad they are not pushed aggressively in the US market like samsung does with their phones. i wouldn't mind seeing another nexus from HTC either.

    Definately HTC. Not so much for Sony. They are just middle of the pack. But I suppose that's what we said about LG.

    For what it's worth I was in Best Buy today and I still gotta say that the screen on the HTC One X is still the bomb. Even compared to my Nexus 4. It's just deeper and richer. Wish it wasn't.

    sony is in the "middle of the pack" because of crappy marketing, and showing almost no aggression to penetrate into the US market (besides AT&T, I don't really see any sony phones). that, however, doesn't mean their phones aren't good. I've never seen the screen on any of them, but i would imagine their screens with the Bravia engine looks pretty damn good. their industrial designs are fantastic, possibly my favorite out of all the android OEMs. I also like that sometimes they use higher quality materials like aluminum (instead of always sticking with the fugly plastic that samsung does). i think sony could be a real player if they just got their sh** together lol. they are allowing samsung to dominate them, because they just aren't pushing hard enough. its quite sad really. not too long ago, sony was king in electronics. i was crushed when i found out that the sony nexus leak was only a hoax...

    I think whoever is chosen to make it, we've seen that Google has been making good decisions in who to pick for the Nexus and I am honestly just happy to see different companies get chances with a Nexus push. It looked like Samsung had the Nexus line sewn up just a year ago.. and now look: Google has 3 different, low cost, high quality Nexus devices for sale by 3 different manufacturers - Nexus 4 / LG, Nexus 7 / Asus, Nexus 10 Samsung. In my opinion this is what the Nexus line should be about and it's an excellent push for the various Android OEMs, great deal for consumers, and just good for Android altogether

    Um, that's my point. No one is whining. I simply stated Google and LG made a mistake and are losing money because of it. The other member seems to think that this was launch was intentional.

    You further enhanced my point when you said "go buy something else."

    Mine is ordered, I'm patiently waiting for it to ship, so again, I don't know where you saw whining. I only argued this launch was a mistake and not some brilliantly planned marketing scheme, and that because of said mistake, these two companies are losing money.

    No they did not!!! **Climbs pulpit**
    They could have given sony the next nexus, or perhaps HTC. Hell, I would have even settled for Huawei if that meant everyone got their devices on time. LG have almost zero commitment to the customers. Atleast HTC is spot on when it comes to customer service (I had a faulty one X, and HTC called me 5 times. Yes, 5 times and am in Kenya).
    LG should never make another nexus. Period.
    But you gotta admit, the name Sony Nexus just rolls of the tongue....

    IMO the bolded statement can be pretty subjective based on your experience and on your needs. I love my Nexus 4 and as both a Nexus and a device I purchased from Google I could really care less about the OEM's "commitment" to customers. Before this phone I went from a Blackberry to Droid Bionic to Galaxy Nexus and the OEM's commitment never had any effect on any of my devices.. so I'm not sure how you are meaning that or how it would effect me personally. At this point in the Nexus program I believe Google has a good handle on what they are looking for and who to work with. Whatever OEM they choose for the next one I'm sure it will be a sick device, even though I would vote for Moto I'm sure a Sony one would be awesome as well, or an HTC, or whatever they go with. Just my 2 cents

    I meant LG generally offer almost zero support for their customers. This was their one chance to make a name for themselves, the one chance to get things going, but look at that, they are messing it up.
    On a side note, am sooo jealous of your N4!!! I ma just seeing people round my office carrying S3's and they put my Flex to shame

    I mean.. sold out is still sold out, I know quantities were disappointingly low but for a phone that has seen barely a hint of advertising ANYWHERE, something that really only enthusiasts like us even know exists, this thing is in high demand and will remain that way for the foreseeable future. The Galaxy Nexus, with all it's "issues", remained one of the top rated phones long into it's life on all the top tech sites even while phones with better specs were coming out monthly. I expect the Nexus 4 will sell just fine over the next year. I also think they have made quite a name for themselves seeing how well reviewed the device is everywhere.. suddenly LG is a major player in the market whereas even 4 months ago not many consumers even looked their way. Now people can't wait to see what they bring to CES while the Nexus 4 is still in incredibly high demand. I think they've certainly made a name for themselves. Could it have been a bigger splash if more quantity were available? I guess, but that's not as big a deal as some think it is right now -- I know it is to you and everyone else still waiting for one, lol.. be patient and you'll be rewarded soon I hope!

    But still, convincing people that LG is a trustworthy brand will be an uphill task.
    Take a Sony, LG, Motorola and Samsung and place them side by side and I bet you that People will pick the Samsung first followed by the Sony.
    Am curious, there really isnt any chatter about the moto X

    But this is the point: not everyone can wait until pigs sprout wings to purchase a phone. So, yes, Google is losing orders by not having the device in stock and offering an indication of when customers could purchase said device.

    I had an LG G2x -- I don't have high regard for LG as a brand. Most of that comes down to their almost comedic continuous failure to follow through with promises and commitments in regards to software issues; my phone's hardware was fine.

    But when it came time to replace it, my trust in Google far outweighed the concerns I have with LG. Simply put, Google has far, far too much invested in putting their name on the line in branding a phone 'Nexus' to allow any but the most unforeseeable issues make it through their collaborative QC. That, and the fact that the biggest issue I had with LG being the failures in delivery of updates is a moot issue with a vanilla device, made the Nexus 4 a no-brainer. LG doesn't make bad devices, but rather devices that aren't necessarily as inspired and well-designed as those of their competitors. Google brought plenty of that.

    Aside from that...

    I do think that the availability issues will be have penalized LG with huge opportunistic cost; to a lesser degree, Google as well.

    For LG, they finally have a phone that has the full backing of Google, a phone receiving absolutely rave reviews and demonstrating enormous potential sell-through, a phone that, for those not predisposed against LG through hearsay or experience, could lead many to seriously consider another LG phone when it comes time to replace their N4. Lack of availability means many buyers will go with an alternative rather than wait, and the next most attractive options out there are not LG.

    For Google, this is a wildly desirable phone that can at off-contract pricing attract customers currently using or considering devices of other platforms (ios, windows, etc). While the massive press surrounding its lack of availability is turning otherwise oblivious heads to notice the device, the N4's eventual return after a long absence from store/Play shelves will result in far fewer sales than had there been reasonable availability early on.

    You sir...I tip my hat off to you
    And with CES coming up, where smartphones are lined up like ducks in a row, LG and Google are looking at a window that is closing up fast.
    The Sony Yuga (I think) is a very serious contender to the throne.
    And with 1080p screens around the corner, people will have a hard time justifying a nexus 4, especially if you can get the Sony Yuga for $200 or less on contract

    I couldn't agree more. I would be happy to see any manufacturer make the next phone. It would be cool to see Asus develop the next phone as I loved what I saw in the Pad phone and also love what they did with the transformer prime and N7.
