LG and Google don't seem to have any trouble selling the Nexus 4. Of course, that thought is based entirely on how it seems that the Nexus 4 listing in the Play Store seems to be out of stock more than it is in stock. Even at this time, the listing for both the 8GB and 16GB Nexus 4 is sold out with a mention that they are out of inventory.

Motorola Atrix HD users received their long-awaited Jelly Bean update, as did Galaxy S III users on Verizon, so overall it was a pretty good day for those craving Jelly Bean. Speaking of Jelly Bean, Acer might be planning a new handset called the V360 running Google's latest version of the Android OS, and today we spotted an absurdly large 8.5-inch phone from Huawei.
Google has suddenly removed the stock firmware images for the Nexus 4 from its website. All of its other devices such as the Nexus 7 still have the images available, so there clearly must be a reason Google has decided to pull down the images for only the Nexus 4. Until Google issues an official statement, all we can do is speculate, but there are certainly some reasons out there that seem logical.
Nexus 4 did indeed have hidden support for LTE. The catch with that, those looking to enable that LTE connection had to make a few tweaks. Plus, you had to be living in Canada and using either Rogers or Telus. In other words, the vast majority of Nexus 4 users were left out.
Google has been having some issues keeping the Nexus 4 in stock. The phone, which ships with some solid specs and can be purchased unlocked for an excellent price, has proven to be pretty popular with the Android faithful, which means that many are facing long shipping times or sold out alerts. It turns out that isn't the only thing Google is having stock issues with, as the official Nexus 4 bumper is now listed as sold out on the Google Play Store.
Nexus 4 is a hot item. Google Play is selling out of them faster than they can make them. T-Mobile sold out of its initial stock in just a matter of hours, and then it restocked and sold out of that almost as quickly. Well now the phone is back in stock again, but something immediately stands out as being different from the previous listings on T-Mobile.
Nexus 4 in the UK? So far, that has been easier said than done, what with the stock Google is able to generate selling out at ultra-high speeds. Well today, Google is adding some more inventory to the Play Store in the UK at 5pm GMT, so if you've been waiting to scoop up one of these devices, you had better be sitting at your computer ready to pull the trigger.
LG Nexus 4 smartphone is available now. We know how difficult it has been for many to get their hands on Google's newest Nexus smartphone, and most likely those in Canada will probably face the same issues. The device is on sale right now so you'd better hurry.
CyanogenMod and you've been lucky enough to get your hands on a Nexus 4, then you're in for a treat. The CyanogenMod team announced on Google Plus that they're rolling out the first Nexus 4 (mako) nightly build for CyanogenMod 10.1, which is based on Android 4.2. The team is doing this because they've seen Nexus users installing third party CyanogenMod 10.1 builds, so they thought they'd take advantage of the demand they've been seeing and begin releasing nightlies.
