5-6 Weeks Shipping For a Nexus 4 -- What Are You Playing at Google?

By Sam Gibbs on at

So, Google finally got more Nexus 4 stock in yesterday, which was great, but the really bad news is there's now a five to six week wait for delivery. Yes, over a month. Christmas is a no-no, and it seems you'd be lucky to even get your mitts on one by early January. What the hell Google?

Seriously. You've got the new hotness that is the Android phone to have, and it's actually affordable. It's an absolute competition killer, but you can seemingly neither produce them fast enough, nor can your store handle the influx of eager buyers correctly. Google, if you want to dominate the market, which your £240-£280 price point screams, then you have to be able to get the phones out to people.

Right now, although everyone's still mad-keen on grabbing one, you're pissing a lot of would-be buyers right off. Sort it out. Sort it out right now, and bloody well ship these things faster for goodness sake. [Google Play via TechRadar]
