Official: Replacement Nexus 4s are on back-order. 3-5 weeks shipping time frame.

Well, its official from Google support now. Their original email claimed shipment by the end of last week. Now they have emailed me and said it has been put on back-order and won't be shipped for 3-5 weeks. Anyone left with a dud-Nexus 4 is going to have to wait out the long haul before they receive a replacement.
