Users that are residing in Canada have had some serious issues getting a Nexus 4, which is no surprise as the rest of the world has been having difficulties as well (both technical reasons and stock shortages). Google sent out an e-mail earlier today telling everyone that the device would be available online today at 12:00pm PST. IT is currently 9:30pm EST and it seems like the device is still in stock. Keep in mind that that could change within minutes.
To give you a quick reminder, Google’s LG-manufactured Nexus 4 is packing a 4.7-inch 1280 x 768 display, a 8-megapixel rear shooter, 1.3-megapixel front facing camera, 2 gigs of RAM, wireless charging and Android 4.2. The device comes in 8 gig and 16 gig versions priced at $299 and $349, respectively. Users will get to enjoy HSPA+ 42 network speeds, although, depending on what network you’re on and what band type said network has, the Nexus 4 is capable of using LTE, which was demonstrated to work in Canada only a couple of weeks back.
Of course, another one of the awesome perks that comes with the Nexus 4 is the extremely fast updates to the latest Android firmware versions! On a more unrelated note, if you’re tired of waiting and are just going to head on over to a different device, I’d highly suggest looking into Samsung, as their updates have been pretty fast as of late. The only thing that seems to have been holding the updates from being super speedy is the carriers.
Are any of you going to be trying your luck at a Nexus 4? Let us know what you think of this bad boy when you get it!
