By this point we all know that Google’s (GOOG) Nexus 4 smartphone is difficult to come by, and now we’re just trying to figure out where to place the blame for its perpetual supply shortages. AndroidCentral points us to an interview in French publication Challenges with LG (066570) Mobile France director Cathy Robin, who denies that her company is the primary culprit behind the case of the missing Nexus 4 supplies and who asserts that “the supply problems are not solely related to LG.” Robin’s statement comes after an anonymous LG executive last week told Korean publication Chosun Ilbo that LG’s Nexus 4 production has gone exactly according to plan while denying that the company has faced difficulties manufacturing the device. Both of these statements contradict a recent statement from Google UK & Ireland Managing Director Dan Cobley, who blamed LG for the Nexus 4′s “scarce and erratic” supply over the holiday season.
