LG Nexus 4: Xmas Comes Early, Shipping Accelerated

By  | 

If you have ordered the LG Nexus 4 then you will expect to get your device in around 5 to 6 weeks’ time if you want the 16GB version, meanwhile the 8GB version in the US is out of stock. The waiting time has been due to unprecedented demand for the handset and this will be the same heading into the New Year.

LG Nexus 4 shipping early for some

However Product-Reviews now reports that it seems that if you ordered the LG Nexus 4 with an expected shipping delay of one month, you might not have to wait this long anymore.

Some readers are saying that when they placed their order for the device they expected to wait around a month for the handset. However they have received the device within a period of one week of ordering. This began happening last week and now readers feel that an email should bring this news to the attention.

Hi, just to follow on from an article you posted sometime early last week regarding the Nexus 4 being out of stock for the rest of the year. I just wanted to let you know that I ordered my Nexus 4 16GB on Wednesday and was given a delivery estimation of 4-5 weeks, it would seem that was incorrect as I actually received the Nexus 4 on Friday and am typing this message to yourself using that very device! I don’t know why I received it so quickly it may be that I have been prioritized for purchasing a Nexus 7 earlier this year, or it may be an artificial holding back of stock to make the device look as though it is in higher demand (like what happened with the Wii). Anyway I hope you will take this into consideration.

So have you been among one of the lucky ones who thought they would be waiting into the New Year before getting your hands on the LG Nexus 4 but have already received it?
