After a little bit of a hiccup last week on the Play Store that saw the Nexus 4 8GB listed as ‘Temporarily Sold Out’ and the Nexus 4 16GB shipping times move to two to three weeks, it appears that Google now has a handle on the shipping situation as the 8GB model remains at two to three weeks while the 16GB variant recently dropped to one to two weeks.
Last week, we saw Google run into what appeared to be a bit of trouble, once again, with the Nexus 4 shipping times through the Google Play Store. The Nexus 4 was listed as out of stock, something not unfamiliar to the smartphone and before that, both the Nexus 4 8GB and Nexus 4 16GB had drifted into the two to three week shipping territory after being listed with faster shipping times in the days previous.
However, despite a bit of panic from interested buyers, the shipping times are holding firm with the 16GB variant actually moving down to one to two weeks after a stint at two to three weeks.
This is fantastic news for those that might be gearing up to buy the Nexus 4 from the Google Play Store and the fact that the Nexus 4 hasn’t seen severe shipping times arrive yet is a sign that LG was telling the truth when it said that supply issues that were affecting the Nexus 4, since November, would be taken care of by mid-February.
LG had said that things would smooth out by the middle of this month and given that shipping times are not only holding firm but getting better, it looks like the worst days are behind the Nexus 4.
What’s more is that Google also finally released the Nexus 4 Wireless Charging Orb, the Nexus 4′s official wireless charger from LG that was announced back with the Nexus 4 in November but didn’t make it to shelves until just a short time ago.
Like the Nexus 4, Google is shipping out the Wireless Charging Orb extremely quickly with its shipping date estimated to be February 16th.
