New Delhi: As fans are well aware by now, the Nexus 4 has been in short supply since its launch. According to Engadget, LG Mobile's France Director Cathy Robin has offered some clarification on the short supply of the device in an interview with French website Challenges.fr.

According to Robin, the short supply can partially be blamed on Google's sales forecast. Google had apparently predicted that the device wouldn't sell very well, going by the performance of the Galaxy Nexus. This led to LG producing too few units and shipping them from the wrong regions.

Robin, however, notes that despite this, Google and LG have maintained a healthy relationship.
