LG Nexus 4 Shipped to Early Buyers
The LG Nexus 4 is on the way to customers lucky enough to place an order for the Nexus 4 on November 13th.
Yesterday Google showed preparing for shipment, with an estimated shipping date of November 15th, and as of this morning multiple reports show that the Nexus 4 shipped and is in the hands of UPS.
Customers can find their tracking number in their Google Wallet account, but the tracking number is not yet active for some users so it is unclear if the Nexus 4 will arrive on Saturday, or be held over for Monday delivery.
Users can look for an email form the Google Play Store, or login to check for their shipping number in their Google Play Store Orders and Settings page.
The LG Nexus 4 is the latest Nexus smartphone from Google, offering a pure Android experience without the skins and pre-installed apps found on most phones sold at Verizon, Sprint AT&T and T-Mobile. As a Nexus smartphone, the Nexus 4 is also running Android 4.2, the latest version of Android, and will be first in line for updates when Google announces a new version in 2013.
When the LG Nexus 4 went on sale in the Google Play Store on Tuesday for $299 and $349, it sold out swiftly, after a bumpy order process that allowed some shoppers to place orders after it appeared the initial stock was depleted.
The Nexus 4 price seems expensive compared to the iPhone 5 and Droid DNA, but these prices are for the off-contract phone, which means users don’t need to tie into a two-year contract and the phone works on a wide array of carriers.
Google did not release the LG Nexus 4 wireless charger, but there are several other Nexus 4 wireless chargers available to order without a wait.
The LG Nexus 4 is out of stock at the moment, but Google promises to replenish the Nexus 4 stock in the coming weeks. There is no notification for users to sign up, so stay tuned to the GottaBeMobile Nexus 4 coverage for more information.
