Buying a Nexus 4 from the Google Play store has been nearly impossible since the device first launched in early November. A while back, Google described the supply of Nexus 4 handsets from LG as “scarce and erratic,” but an LG company official spoke with South Korean newspaper, Chosun Ilbo, to set the record straight.
The LG official claims the “Nexus 4 has been produced without a hitch” and that “there is no problem in supply.” This leads us to believe that Google simply underestimated demand for the Nexus 4. The LG official also commented on the recent rumors that LG has halted Nexus 4 production to “focus on the development of its future offerings” saying that they were completely “unfounded.”
For now, it’s impossible to know if or when Google and LG will resolve the supply issues which have plagued the Nexus 4. If you’re still hoping to get your hands on the Nexus 4, your best bet will most likely be your local T-Mobile store.
