Yesterday after my hands-on time with the Nexus 4, I got talking with the big wigs at LG Australia. I wondered aloud how many units the Nexus 4 would sell considering that it’s going to be online-only? As soon as those words fell out of my mouth, I was immediately corrected: “We expect to have it in stores soon.” Oh.
The Nexus 4 is probably the best deal you’ll get on an Android phone this side of 2013. It’s built like a sparkly supermodel and thinks like IBM’s Watson computer compared to other Android handsets.

LG told us yesterday that, despite the fact that carriers are shunning it in lieu of 4G-powered smartphones, it’s not afraid to launch the Nexus 4 without a carrier in the countries glut of gadget retailers. Unbranded, unlocked, unleashed.
The Nexus 4 is likely to go on sale on Google Play by November 13. Stores aren’t likely to have stock for a little while after that, simply because demand for the device is already so damn high, LG is having trouble keeping up with demand.
Better make ’em quick, LG. We’ll be waiting.
