Nexus 4 is not supported by AOSP.

Not being a developer, I'm not really sure of the implications of this. What are the implications?

Meaning the sources for N4 will not be provided by Google, like they did/do with all other Nexus devices. You won't be able to just download the Android sources and build a ROM like you were able to with other nexus devices.

Can you give us a link? I just ordered a Nexus 4 and this is awful news.
The Groups link doesn't use clear language and doesn't rule out future release..

It clearly says "There is nothing in AOSP related to Nexus 4"

On google+ I asked him: "Does that mean Nexus 4 not supported by AOSP?"
JBQ: Correct.
Me: But any plans to include N4 in AOSP later on?
JBQ: I can't comment about the future, sorry.

wtf is this nonsense!!!

it's a Nexus device just like the Nexus 7, 10, Galaxy Nexus, etc...y shouldn't it have AOSP?!

if this were true, then T-Mobile should have went ahead and added wifi calling to their version.

Oh well at least the factory image is up there. Hope it gets supported by AOSP in the future though.
