I wonder how many people are on the Nexus 4 device page hitting f5 to see if it becomes available. Why don't Google just tell us whats going on?

Managed to get a 16gb N4 after repeatedly having to restart the payment process. It disappeared from my cart a few times but I found that if I went back a couple of pages it would reappear and I was able to start the payment process all over again. 30 mins of doing that and the order went through.

^ Yep, that would be me!

btw, CTRL+F5 is better as thats a complete refresh & clears the cache for that page instead of using cache stored on the PC.

I thought about buying 3 or 4 & selling them on ebay. But because of all the fees involved to make at least £10 profit you need to selling a N4 for £335+
So, to me, its definately not worth the hassle of making £30~£40

What other company can manage to frustrate, annoy and downright alienate a major part of the it's own potential (and existing) customer base; Google ofcourse.
Extremely amateurish selling campaign, someone should get fired for this, hopefully someone senior at Google like maybe a VP !
It was so very simple to solve; take pre-orders, judge response, source accordingly.

Google, you have made some enemies today !

It was a painless process for me. N4 16gb & N10 16gb ordered with £9.99 shipping total.

Just hoping they ship in order. Last couple of times I preordered I was always shipped days after everyone else!

Hello Richard,

Thank you for contacting Google Play! I received a call from you concerning the Nexus 4 availability. I can understand that receiving a new device can be exciting. I would be more then happy to clarify any questions you may have concerning this device.

We're working to stock additional inventory and hope to have Nexus 4 available soon. I’m unable to provide a specific date of availability at this time.

If you've already ordered, please rest assured that your existing order is in no way affected and will ship according to the time frame listed at the time of your order.

I'm not sure why everyone's going so mental, this type of thing happens all the time on websites all around the world when they become overloaded with traffic, just because they are Google does not mean they are exempt especially if they hadn't predicted such a huge demand.

Additionally, why is everyone so eager to get this device today? Everybody, especially Nexus owners and seasoned tech guys should know by now that early adopters are ALWAYS the ones that get shafted.

Have a cup of tea, wait a couple of weeks if you have too, see if any potential issues emerge and chill out. What can you possibly gain from being one of the first to own this device? A few million have just ordered it too, your not special in anyway. Have some patience.

Everyone round here is acting like a bunch of mac tard iTwats.

I received emails this morning at 08:32 and 08:36, the first confirming availability of the Nexus 10, and second for the Nexus 7 3G. Had a busy day at work, and lunch ended up being a working lunch/meeting so didn't have time to order.

Came home at 6pm, and after placing an order for the Nexus 7 3G, I noticed the Nexus 4 and 10 are showing as 'coming soon'.

I guess I'll just wait for the N10 to become available, but to be honest, I think I ought to settle for the 3G N7. I returned my 16gb to Tesco for a refund, so I know what to expect when it's delivered. Great little tablet!

The 3G N7 is now showing as 'coming soon' now (8:30pm)

While some see them as the crazy ones,we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.

You didnt come here to make the choice. Youve already made it. Youre here to try to understand why you made it.
