Google UK Manager Apologizes For Nexus 4 Shortage, All But Directly Points Finger At LG

There’s little question that the explosive popularity of the Nexus 4 has led to frustrations as shipping delays and out of stock notices seem to be more prevalent than customers receiving their devices. With supplies of the handset scarce, many are turning their frustration toward Google who is once again suffering from a poor customer service response and not directly tackling the issue in the public arena. The good news is that at least one … [read full article]

(It’s a Typo) The Nexus 4 Returns To T-Mobile.com…For $399 With A Two-Year Agreement?

Update: The correct pricing is shown when you try and upgrade ($199), it’s all but obvious this is a typo and I was probably mistaken for thinking this could be anything else. Don’t tell that to the Spanish or Italians though.

PSA: No, The Nexus 4 Does Not Have Wi-Fi Calling

I hate to be the bearer of bad news a second time-around considering I’ve already posted this very same message once before. However, thanks thanks to a generic T-Mobile support page, there’s a new rumor quickly making its way around that the Nexus 4 does in fact have Wi-Fi calling if purchased through T-Mobile. Except, it doesn’t and it’s worrisome that this story is spreading as fast … [read full article]

Our best guess is that high traffic and high volume … [read full article]

Spanish Retailer Suspends Plans To Sell Nexus Due To Pricing, Is Google Subsidizing Play Store Purchases?

I’ll be the first to admit that my first reaction to T-Mobile’s Value Plan pricing on the Nexus 4 was one of aggravation and frustration. As I saw it, T-Mobile appeared to be bumping the off-contract price against Google’s own pricing making any Value Plan deal with T-Mobile not much of a deal at all. As it turns out, perhaps the fault doesn’t … [read full article]

Nexus 4 Battery Life Tested, Early Results Show Less Than Impressive Results

Google went on the record with The Verge last week and mentioned two reasons why LTE was left out of the Nexus 4: the first reason was building a carrier independent device couldn’t be achieved with LTE and the second reason power draw. There’s little argument that LTE does in fact use more power than HSPA+ or 3G, however LG did include LTE in the Optimus G design, which is the … [read full article]

PSA: Sorry Everyone, No Wi-Fi Calling On The Nexus 4

In the hopes of clarifying a bit of confusion and concern I see in the comments, I’ve reached out to T-Mobile to confirm that there will be no Wi-Fi calling on the Nexus 4. Now, odds are greatly in favor of this not being a T-Mobile decision anyway as a Nexus device generally doesn’t receive any carrier input. Therefore, T-Mobile likely had zero input in the manufacturing of the device and couldn’t … [read full article]

Google Updates Nexus 4 Play Store Page To Include HSPA+ 42Mbps Connectivity

In a quick update and brief update, Google has updated their Play Store page for the Nexus 4 to indicate the availability of HSPA+ 42Mbps connectivity, just as we expected. Having confirmed T-Mobile’s Nexus 4 would also be sold with HSPA+ 42Mbps, it seemed like a sure thing that the Play Store model would as well. Now, we can put aside any concerns that one model of the Nexus 4 would … [read full article]
