The Nexus 4 Android 4.2.2, JellyBean update is now available; however, it comes at a small price.

Once the software update is downloaded, the phone's baseband software will be altered a bit, completely disabling the partial unofficial LTE connectivity.

Most Nexus owners will not notice the change as they haven't tweaked the device to access LTE.

Android 4.2.2, JellyBean brings some minor fixes and stability enhancements to the device.

Quick settings has been enhanced to allow for Wi-Fi and Bluetooth setting changes and users will hear new sounds when the handset is charged wirelessly along with a different low battery notification.

Users will also not be prompted to allow the connection when they plug their smartphone into their computer for the first time.

The wireless charger for the Nexus 4 smartphone is now available in the Google Play store.

The accessory retails for $59.99 and ships in less than one week. The charger bears a striking resemblance to the Nexus Q device that Google pulled off shelves after its initial launch last year.

Google originally announced the wireless charger for the Nexus 4 back in October. It's almost four months later and Google has finally posted it in the Play store, allowing customers to order the device. The charger can reportedly give the Nexus 4 a full charge in 4 hours time.

The Nexus 4 smartphone reached a milestone this week as Google has sold 1 million units of the handset. This was confirmed by a "Senior Member" of the Android hacking community, who claims the company reached this amount by selling the millionth unit in Turkey.

Google or LG has not confirmed this information, however, the device has been flying out of stock since its initial release three months ago, so this is not that far-fetched.
