It is a blame game between Google and the South Korean company LG.While Google holds LG responsible for the shortfall of Nexus 4 in the market.On the other hand,LG points its finger at Google for the same.
In the French market there is a shortage of Nexus 4.If sources can be believed,it was Google that gave an estimation of the demand for Nexus 4 in this country- a demand that turned out to be more.According to the website,400000 or less phones were sent there for sales.
Google claims that it had based its predictions on the sale of the previous model of Nexus.
The same trend was seen in UK and Germany where the stores have run out of stock for Nexus 4.This is in spite of the fact that many more phones were sent to these countries to cover the predicted ten times more demand.It is still a mystery why there is shortfall in these countries.
A chance still lies for those wanting this phone as LG is trying to make up the shortfall.
This phone is meant to be a “reference” version of the Android software.Google was selling it at a price much lower than retail outlets. The rush for the phone led to the shortfall.Google blamed LG for its short supply.LG claims that it is still in the midst of shipping the phones which may take six weeks.
LG has seen bad days after Samsung,Sony and HTC went ahead with the Android phone.It has tried hard to revive its misfortunes by launching this phone in November 2012.Consumers felt let down after they had applied online for the phone which could not be delivered due to the shortage.
