That you are able to HOLD them! You should get T-shirts made with "I scored two Nexus 4s" and walk around in them to make everyone jealous!

It's a good thing I'm a simple-minded monkey; otherwise, I might be offended by that statement.

Same here. I HATE Apple but my iPad and iPod Touch are attached to my hip... and my nano to my wrist

Why? I would be extremely happy to be able to buy the Nexus 4 as cheaply as $350. Why do you need it to drop in price?

so it is nearing the 500000 mark. LG is picking up production speed. Hopefully Google will have some to sell soon (and ship in February).

Because I won't pay $349 for one. $299 is max for me.

Is that just an arbitrary number? How do you arrive at these maximum numbers to pay? Especially since in this case the phone is extremely cheap to begin with.

We in countries without Google Play availability have to pay nearly $700 instead.

$700 is an artificially inflated price to begin with.

As for me, they're my numbers:
  • $99 for a high-end ereader
  • $199 for a high-end 16GB 7" tablet
  • $249 for a high-end 32GB 7" tablet
  • $299 for a high-end 32GB unlocked phone

Ladies and gentleman, we seem to be approaching the serial number "half of the million" Curious who will be getting it

Production rate seems to be accelerating to 20k devices per day. So, they are really doing something. The "esndate" date "jumping" of TMO devices looks somehow conspicious, but "esnoutgodate" of most of them seems to be a 10-th of January, so maybe those are just some production irregularities.
Most of other serials and dates seem to mostly follow that same sequential pattern.

To sum it up: it looks like T-Mobile is getting a serious pile of devices. Noticed that they are selling well?
There is another noticeable batch for germany play store.

ANEUBK "EUROPE OPEN" seems to be something new. Start of normal retail sales through LG channels?

They have to keep it up, the demand for this phone is through the roof. Had they not had manufacturing issues, the sales figures would have been staggering.
