It seems that Big G had no idea of the potential demand and LG simply built as many phones Google had asked for.It seems the British phone fans want more of the Nexus 4.LG is once again blaming Google for stock issues as the Android phone went on to become a smash-hit.
Cathy Robin,the LG France boss,pointed the finger at Google and said that LG built as many phones as Google asked for.The numbers were based on the sales of previous Nexus phones like Nexus S.It seems Google has severely underestimated on how many customers will actually buy the phone.
But Google is not to be blamed solely.Who would have though that a quad-core with a high-definition screen and the most recent Jelly Bean software,costing £240 would be so popular?Well,one would need to be some kind of visionary to see them coming and making a n accurate guess.
In Britain and Germany,the sale went on to become more than ten times of what was expected.The new Nexus has certainly struck a chord. This is good news for LG that will buck up the production of the Nexus 4 from mid-February.LG will take about 6 weeks to boost the frequency of deliveries.
It was during the end of last year that the Nexus 4 went on sale. Ever since then,the device has been a complete sell out at Google Play.If you were late and missed out on bagging a phone fast, the only way to get hold of Nexus 4 now is on a contract from a phone network.It is up to you to consider which is the better option, a cheap hypothetical phone or an expensive real phone.
Virgin Media is already adding the Nexus 4 to its line-up,joining O2 and Three.Nexus 4 is a high quality phone that is relatively inexpensive.Google brands the phone although the device is manufactured by LG.LG is already boosting its production to meet the growing demand in mid-February.
Google could sell over 4 million units in the coming months. It is interesting to note here that Google may not have made very many phones.Depending on what happens in the coming months,Google’s Nexus 4 sales could be at par with all of Motorola’s smartphone sales this quarter.
