Demand for the LG/Google Nexus 4 mobile phone has apparently outstripped supply by ten-times, due to unanticipated popularity.
In an interview with Challenges.fr, head of LG France Cathy Robin claimed that the technology giants had simply not expected the device to be such a huge hit.
Many consumers have had difficulties purchasing the device from Google Play, and so have not been able to take advantage of the low SIM-free price tag.
Impressive specifications and consumers' growing attraction to the Nexus brand, perhaps motivated by the tablet computer range, may have also boosted sales.
Available with either 8 GB or 16 GB of internal storage, this handset provides users with a high-end experience at a relatively low price.
A quad-core processor, 2 GB of RAM and the latest Android operating system provide fast and smooth performance.
The 4.7-inch screen offers owners increased enjoyment and convenience when browsing the web or playing games, while an eight-megapixel camera is provided for good quality snaps.
