The LG Nexus 4 was launched overseas on November 13, 2012

NEW DELHI, INDIA: After months of waiting for the India launch of Google LG Nexus 4, the excitement among Indian consumers regarding the smartphone seems to be dying down. The smartphone, which was initially being speculated to be launched in November 2012, has still not officially been launched in India.

With no word from Google or LG regarding the India launch, even online retailers are pushing the availability date on their websites forward. Online retail website Saholic.com, last week displayed the availability date of the smartphone as February 15, but has now pushed the date forward to February 28.''LG E960 Nexus 4 16GB will be available by 28/02/13'' says the latest message on the website.

Users selling the smartphone on eBay too are quoting a lesser price than what was being quoted earlier. The smartphone, which was in December being sold at Rs, 36,000, is now being sold at around Rs. 30,500 on eBay by users.

Indian consumers seem to be enraged by the lack of availability of the smartphone in the country. Many have opted to go for other smartphones as well. ''Google and LG has frustrated the customers. I bought note II rather than an endless wait,'' comments a viewer on CIOL.

''Was eagerly waiting for this phone for last 3 months and finally it is set to come to my doorsteps tomorrow.Believe me guys its a must have device.It is really pity LG has ignored India.Surely they are doing a really big mistake of ignoring one of the world's biggest smartphone market like India,'' says another CIOL viewer.

The reason behind the delay in launch in India is apparently due to a debate between LG and Google over the price tag of the smartphone, according to a report on IBN Live. The report, quoting an unnamed source says that ''They (LG and Google) have not yet come to terms on whether to opt for the same price model at which Google introduced the phone in the US, or let LG determine the price of the new phone for the Indian market.''

Whatever the reason may be, it should be kept in mind that some of the previous Nexus smartphones such as Galaxy Nexus and Nexus One were never launched in India and the second Nexus smartphone 'Nexus S' was made available after several months of the global release.What do you think will be the fate of LG Nexus 4 in India? Do let us know.

Some sites claim to launch it on 28th feb, but it`s not ,now within a 3 month of period they are not launching in india . in other hand LG launch Optimus G at Rs. 34000 . foreign sites sell LGN4 at Rs. 24 to 28000 price range , be carefull to deal with.

Its too much now....even Samsung galaxy S3 price is less than grey market price of Nexus 4, so its better to ignore LG.

Company is making loads on money which is unexpectedly above their expectations. Big or not but the fact is they don't have time for India market. India market is not there priority.....I think the product will be launched only when its demand gets subdued in international market...or something better starts to appear in the market....

I really don't understand how a savvy company like Google can allow delay in launch of this much awaited product. That too in one of the most biggest market. Latest data shows that iPhone 5 (which is btw a premium smartphone) has increased market share through aggressive pricing

Apple is reported to be planning to introduce the tougher synthetic sapphire screen for its new iPhone.How much would you be willing to pay for it?
