Google Nexus 4 brings Google to their knees, more stock to arrive "within three weeks"

More Google Nexus 4 smartphones to ship to customers "within three weeks"

I was lucky enough to get in and get a Nexus 4 in Australia within 20 minutes, which felt like no effort at all - although my delivery was meant to arrive yesterday, I rang FedEx and they've said that there was a stuff up with Google, and it has been delayed in China - boo. Now I won't get my Nexus 4 until next week - #firstworldproblems.


Well, those not lucky enough to score a Nexus 4 will have to wait another few weeks, as the Mountain View-based search giant have been sending out emails to those who backordered a Nexus 4, telling them to expect a Nexus 4 to ship out "within three weeks". Google have decided to be a great company here, and in order to stem the pain of not scoring a Nexus 4 with the first batch, they're waiving shipping charges and will allow consumers to cancel their stock if they find a Nexus 4 at a local T-Mobile dealer.

The email from Google:

Thank you for your recent purchase on Google Play. Due to overwhelming demand, your Nexus 4 is on backorder and is expected to ship within three weeks. We'll send you a notification when your order has shipped and will credit the shipping charges.
