Still looking for an LG Nexus 4? If so and you are willing or able to use the T-Mobile network, online retailer LetsTalk has a deal going for the device for new activations. Possibly the best part is that their web site shows the device as being “In Stock” and they have free overnight shipping via FedEx. LetsTalk indicates it takes them 1 to 2 days to process the order in their warehouse, so you could possibly have the device in hand by the weekend if things work out right. On top of the availability, LetsTalk also offers a special coupon code, “TALK4TEN” that gives you an additional $8.50 off the price. With a two-year contract, that brings the total price down to $76.49.

If you are ready to place your order and can live with a T-Mobile two-year contract in order to get the subsidy discount, just hit the source link below.

More evidence of a white LG Nexus 4 surfaces

Late yesterday we reported on a leaked image that purported to show a new white version of the LG Nexus 4 smartphone. The question on everyone’s mind was whether it was a legitimate image. Today more images have surfaced showing a white, well mostly white, LG Nexus 4 device. The images showed up on a Vietnamese web site and show the device being held in someone’s hand as they rotate the device around for different views in a series of fifteen shots. Not impossible to fake, but these latest images would require a lot more effort to produce if someone were trying to pull a hoax on the tech world. » Read the rest

Evidence Of A White Nexus 4

We might have our first view of the white Nexus 4 on the same day the standard black model returned to the Play Store. We heard there might be a white version in the works last year but this is the first time we see any “evidence” of the existence of such a device. Speaking of evidence, there’s not much. Phone Arena reported the image above was submitted by an anonymous source. Examining the EXIF data shows the image was taken by an LG-E975, better known as the Optimus G. While that little piece of information adds an element of intrigue to the story, it does little to validate the authenticity. Put your debunking hats on and hit the source for the full size image. I’ll keep my fingers crossed they release a version with more storage, not more white.

LG Nexus 4 now available for order on Best Buy web site with T-Mobile service

Despite problems with order fulfillment from the Google Play store and gaining a reputation akin to a clear shot of a Bigfoot, there are still a lot of people that want to get in on the LG Nexus 4 bandwagon. The desire for the device comes not just from consumers, but from retailers and carriers as well who want to be able to offer it to their customers. The latest example of this is Best Buy, which now lists the LG Nexus 4 with T-Mobile service on their web site. You might be tempted by that language on the site that reads, “Usually ships in 3-5 business days.” However, using the Estimate Arrival Time link I got dates between February 6th and February 11th. Even that may still be quicker than waiting for your opportunity to place an order through the Play Store.

NTT DoCoMo announced a bunch of phones and tablets for their spring lineup and the LG Optimus G Pro was one of them. We already knew most of the goods on it, but the specs are now official: 5-inch 1080p display, a 1.7GHz quad-core Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, 13MP rear camera, 3,000mAh battery, and LTE. It will be available in April. No official word from LG so we have no idea when or if it will be available in other parts of the world.

LG to start global roll-out of LG Optimus G this month

by Jeff Causey on
tagged , ,

LG announced today they are going to expand sales of the LG Optimus G into 50 new markets this month. The new markets will join the United States, Canada, Korea, and Japan, all of which already have access to the device. LG hopes the Optimus G will be considered an “ultimate premium 4G LTE smartphone.” While the device does sport some nice hardware, including a Snapdragon S4 quad-core processor, we did not find it was enough to land atop some other leading phones in the U.S. market. Still, buyers have been receptive to the Optimus G as indicated by their recent announcement that they had sold 1 million units. Google also thought enough of the Optimus G to use it as the base for the Nexus 4.

Google May Have Misjudged Nexus 4 Demand By As Much As 10 Times

by Rudy Rivapalacio on
tagged , , ,

The Nexus 4 has been pretty hard to come by and, if LG is to be believed, Google’s terribly inaccurate sales predictions are the biggest reason. According to Cathy Robin, head of mobile communications for LG France, demand has been 10 times higher than what Google expected. LG and Google have played a blame game of sorts but it’s hard to fault LG too much if Google did, in fact, give drastically lower sales estimates. Robin said the estimate was based on sales numbers for previous Nexus phones.

It’s easy to play Monday morning quarterback and point to things like price and an enhanced consumer awareness of Android as factors that differentiate the Nexus 4 from its predecessors, but to miss the mark by so much is almost unGoogle. This phone came off the heels of Samsung’s Galaxy S III‘s great success. In the minds of many consumers, this was the next big Android phone. It launched at about half the price of other top tier phones. Yeah, I think there’s going to be a bit of a demand. If the Nexus 4 doesn’t make it back to the Play Store, at least we have Qualcomm’s X phone to look forward to.
