Don't try that! My brother-in-law has a shattered Nexus 4 after it fell from his jacket pocket.

I know. Nobody would throw their expensive devices down the stairs just to check their durability.
Did you get the bumper as well? If not, what have you got?
Hated swype with a passion, and find Google's implementation equally unintuitive.
As for Now, i found it pointless, and a battery and data hog.

Actually, Google Now is proving very useful to my Mrs. Her commute to work can take anywhere between 38 mins & 1 hr 35 mins, depending on traffic. She simply swipes up the phone which tells her how long the commute would take. It's been accurate so far, although the real test will be when schools reopen.
I've just typed this whole passage with gesture typing & there hasn't been a mistake so far on my Nexus 7.
Just seen a report saying they will be available mid February, in reality that means March or later will just have to wait and see, by that time who knows what else may be available.
Personally instead of changing my phone a Nexus 7 and keeping my htc may be a cheaper and better option. I didn't realise how 'cheap' the 7 was until T mobile called yesterday offering me a'fantastic' deal and then saw they are less than a nexus 4 and I would expect them to work better and with a larger screen.

The Nexus 4 is just a con to my eyes.
Are LG that incompetent that they could not match demand? Or did Google restrict it to create it....
Putting out fire with gasoline
Google underestimated the demand:
According to various articles, Google totally under estimated the demand.
Well I’m not being “Mr Cynical” but it does raise my eyebrows a bit.
Reports – rumours? - elsewhere suggest that LG gave up on the 4 a while ago ahead of new models to be announced at MWC. Anyway, after much research and agonising I’ve finally decided to order the Motorola Razr i tomorrow.
This will be my first venture into Android after many years with Nokia/Symbian and I’m really looking forward to the experience.
Sorry bb, missed your post.... I got a wave hydro gel cover (in black) from amazon. Cost £2.99! Bargain.
Ordered my Nexus 4 mid-December at which point I was given a 7 week estimate for delivery. A couple of days ago my Google Play account was updated with an estimated delivery date of 30th Jan then yesterday afternoon I was email telling me it had been shipped.
Just checked my TNT tracking number and it's out for delivery but of course I'm in work so will either have to go to depot to collect or rearrange delivery

These reports refer to an interview with a French LG spokesperson.
In the actual interview, she said that Google had underestimated the demand in France, compared to Germany and the UK.
The complaint being that France got a smaller allocation than those other markets.
There is no shortage of supply of Nexus 4's. There are plenty available either from the networks, or from phone shops.
You can pick one up yourself today, or get them delivered next day.
It's only on Google Play where they've restricted supplies at the "low price".
Having access to a corporate discount, I could get a 16gb Nexus 4 on a contract for £26pm, free phone and £90 up-front cashback.
Next day delivery.
Is that £26 per month for a 2 year contract?
Personally the Nexus 4 appeals to me as the up front cost when buying direct from Google makes it a bargain when on PAYG. If I was offered a Nexus 4 on £26pm contract I'd probably pay a little more to get a Samsung Galaxy S3
