LG deflects blame for Nexus 4 supply issues

Google has had some pretty heavy supply shortages since putting the Nexus 4 handset on sale in November, but manufacturer LG doesn't see a problem from its point of view. An official speaking to the Chosun Ilbo has said that production is proceeding as planned at the Pyeongtaek plant in South Korea, and denied that there is any supply issue.

These comments aren't likely to pacify those who are still unable to buy the handset for themselves, but do raise the question of exactly how many phones Google expected LG to produce — and if we're likely to see much more stock in the future. Google, for its part, said last month that supplies from LG were "scarce and erratic."
