The latest launch from the search giant Google, the Nexus 4 hit the ground due to huge demand and little supply of the handset. LG has explained that “high demand” was the problem.
This hugely expected device is extremely popular as it runs the latest Jelly Bean operating system on a quad-core chip and is also friendly to the pocket. At least when you compare its price to Apple’s iPhone 5, the Nexus 4 costs almost half. In reply to questions of Cnet UK, the company “simply stated ‘high demand’ was the problem”.
No doubt the two online availability of this device as soon as it was launched met with huge orders and were sold-off in 20 to 30 minutes. The second launch in the US saw heavy rush even accompanied by technical glitches. “So far it looks like Google’s original estimates were way short of the actual demand” reports AndroidCommunity.
This Android device has received very good reviews from people in the field of technology. Cnet gave it a 4.5 stars out of 5 and said - “Google has completely re-written the rules on what to expect from an Android phone. The Nexus 4 offers not only astonishing power from its quad-core chip, but an excellent screen and exciting updates to the Android operating system. Most importantly, it comes with a price tag at least half that of its technical rivals.”
Google has launched the new Galaxy 4 smartphone with two other devices the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. 8GB variant of the Nexus 4 is priced at Rs. 23,490 where as the 16GB variant is priced at Rs. 27,490.
