    Nexus 4, 7 3G and 10 go on sale, 4 / 10 32GB sell out


    The Nexus 4 8GB / 16GB, Nexus 7 3G and Nexus 10 16GB / 32GB have gone on sale this morning, of sorts - and the Nexus 4 (both versions) and 10 (32GB) have already sold out.

    The devices, which went on sale at around 8:15 GMT, were made available for sale directly from the Google Play store which demonstrated a complete inability to cope with the levels of traffic experienced. Server errors, self emptying baskets and other issues were experienced by all who tried to order, including yours truly. :(

    The Nexus 4 is now sold out in both 8GB and 16GB iterations, super frustrating for those who managed to put one in their store basket soon after the device went on sale, only to be denied at the last by server problems.

    2 day shipping on the new devices is being charged at £9.99 for the phones (3-5 days) and £13.99 for the tablets (2 days), a sneaky way to claw back some profit on the low margin devices.

    How was your experience? What have you bought / tried to buy / failed to buy?

    I managed to order a N7 3G but completely failed on the N4 front and i'm put off supporting Google with a N10 order out of principle. :(

    I'm currently screaming into my pillow. For someone of Google's magnitude, I would have thought the buying process would have been as smooth as butter.

    I got to entering my payment details only to have it fail.

    I've now got to put up with a Palm Pre for another amount of time as I sold my Android phones in preparation for the N4.

    Managed to grab an N4 16GB, barely. Glastonbury spirit got me through the server constantly screwing up on me. Looks like I was lucky as well...

    Funnily enough, the ad appearing alongside this article for me is for... the new Google devices!

    Not sure, with the quick sellout, those are advertising dollars well spent?!

    Oh, it's all Google so it's all 'free' - ah!

    Tried to buy a 16gb Nexus 4... failed miserably. Furthest I could get was to the payment confirmation page,at which point it told me that my credit cards were expired (they're not, I frequently use them on the Play store !). After re-entering the details it fell over with server errors again... then, as quick as they had appeared, they were back to "Coming Soon".

    Very disappointed.

    I do wonder if they've only allocated small stock to each country for the launch, to make them "sell out" in each country... then after it's launched, release a load more?

    Typical of Google really, no other company knows how to foul up a product launch like they do.

    Say what you like about Apple's business practices, at least they know how to take your money.

    i finally got my 8GB nexus 4 , i thought it was a curse that my card bounced back justminutes after the posst went live, but it kept my order i just had to go put money in :P , oh and three phone calls to the devices sector at google play helped, a little californian man was very helpful, but yes, pain in the arse for a while and yes people, tables were flipped
