Would-be LG Nexus 4-owners got something of a fillip today, with the news that Google has resumed shipments of pre-ordered handsets Google Play.
Released earlier this month, the SIM-free, unbranded edition of the Nexus 4 sold out within half an hour at Google’s online store, driven by a super keen price point of £239. That meant it worked out much, much cheaper to buy the phone outright than opt for a contract.
And today’s good news for savvy smartphone-fanciers eyeing a bargain is that stock shortages appear to be easing much faster than initially anticipated amid missives sent to customers who have pre-ordered the phone informing them that a batch of phones is shipping this week.
A further consignment of the in-demand smartie is apparently set to follow in December, according to testimonies from customers who’ve been contacted by the search giant.
As with all Nexus kits, LG’s addition to the range debuted a vanilla version of the latest version of Android (in this case it’s Android 4.2, aka Jelly Bean) and teams a quad-core processor with an eight-megapixel camera.
