Submission + - Google Blames Nexus 4 Shortage on LG (maximumpc.com)

hugheseyau writes: "Google's Nexus 4 debut is an prime example of how not to launch a product. There's nothing wrong with the hardware, mind you, it's the lack of availability that's driving potential buyers batty. How could Google have so ineptly predicted the strong demand than an unlocked and affordable smartphone running the latest version of Android would elicit? That's a great question, and Google is content to partially pass the buck.

The root cause of the shortage falls on LG's shoulders. Dan Cobley, Google's managing director for the company's U.K. and Ireland divisions, fielded a bunch of questions and complaints on Google+ with an explanation of what's going on, followed by an apology."
