This evening, Google is starting to send out emails to the many of you who ordered a Nexus 4 on November 13th and were then told you would have to wait up to three weeks to get your device. It now appears that a big number of people will be getting their Nexus 4 either late this week or next week. As the email below states, shipments will be heading out “this week”, which means we should see them within a day or two of you getting your “it’s Shipped!” email or sooner.
Your Nexus 4 order is scheduled to ship this week. We’ll send you a notification, including tracking information, when it’s on the way.
Please note that your order will be charged in full when it ships. As a courtesy and to thank you for your patience, you’ll then receive a credit for the shipping charge within 7 business days.

You’ve received this mandatory service announcement email to provide you with important information related to your purchase from Google Play.
Kind of sounds like LG finally got another shipment of shiny new Nexus 4’s to Google. Let’s hope the remainder of orders get their Nexus 4’s this week and next week so the device can back on sale for those that didn’t get a chance to grab one when it went on sale.
Just for the record, three weeks would be December 4th. So those that are getting this email, it is about a week early and that’s a good thing for Google. As we’ve said many times before, we are hoping that Google learned quite a bit from this launch of what not to do. Obviously they should have had more stock than they did. But the Play Store servers also need some help for the next Nexus launch. So Google work on that as well.
While you’re waiting on your Nexus 4 to get here, check out our extensive Nexus 4 review. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it. Did any of our readers get this email today? Let us know in the comments below.
