Have you been chomping at the bit to figure out when you'll actually be receiving that Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 from the Play Store that you're definitely going to buy? Well, here's your answer, straight from Google: orders will begin for both on the 13th, and those orders will start shipping the same day. No pre-orders will be taken. So, if you go for overnight shipping, you could theoretically have sweet Nexus goodness the very next day - November 14th. To put an asterisk on this statement, if your country has the Nexus 4 / 10 set for release on the 13th, too, the above probably applies to you, as well. We can't say for certain, though.

The exact time orders will be starting wasn't provided to us (we wouldn't bet on midnight - probably more like early morning), so there's still some uncertainty, but it'll obviously be early enough in the day for some orders to actually ship. Here's the conversation we had with a Google PR rep on the subject:

AndroidPolice: Is Google going to start shipping on the 13th or open pre-orders? In other words, when will the first customers be able to hold the new Nexuses in their paws?

Google PR Rep: They'll start shipping on that date.

AndroidPolice: Alright, thanks. Do you know when the pre-orders will start then?

Google PR Rep: Right now, it's "Notify me" and on 11/13 it will switch to available for order.

There you have it, so mark your calendar for Tuesday.

    will the Canada phones be shipped right from Canada ??

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Sorry, we don't know anything about shipping details outside the US. Could be, though.

      • zemm

        13th local time or 13th somewhere-in-the US time? Since 9am PDT is like 4am here on the 14th!

  • http://twitter.com/chadmd23 chadmd23

    Good to know, now I don't have to wait up all night to order.

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ David Ruddock

      Well, it COULD start at midnight, but we doubt it.

      • Derek Duncan

        why do you doubt it? Apple does their releases at midnight, right?

        • http://twitter.com/redbullcat Phil Oakley

          Nope, not as far as I know.

          • Derek Duncan

            uh, yes they do. midnight pacific anyway

          • http://twitter.com/redbullcat Phil Oakley

            Oh, sorry, I was talking about the UK releases. They happen at 8am in the morning. Sorry for the confusion.

        • adi19956

          Google is not Apple. That's offensive

        • http://photo.katzmatt.com Matt Katzenberger

          I wish Google was doing some kind of in store midnight launch. I wouldn't camp out in line for three days, but I'd go grab one at midnight...

  • http://wakoopa.com/yo2boy yo2boy

    Gonna pass until they have a 32GB and a price drop for the 16GB like the Nexus 7.

    • http://photo.katzmatt.com Matt Katzenberger

      I don't think that's likely, given the screen and the internal components. I doubt we'll see any kind of price drop on this tablet for a long while, especially given much older and lower powered models still tend to be about $400 for the 16gb version...

    • http://twitter.com/dbest180 Derrick Best

      Not gonna happen

    • josharmour

      Seems like the prices are pretty good already.. What are you hoping for? What are the other phones on the market with that price?

    • http://cassidyjames.com Cassidy James

      They'll probably just make it $399 instead of dropping the price on the other models.

    • PhilippeLepaffe

      Gonna pass until they make a 32GB. But not really for the price drop.

    • adi19956

      It was a fair few months before the N7 price dropped and I think I got enough enjoyment out of it during that time to make up the price drop

      • TylerChappell

        Same, but I still got my 32GB N7 from RadioShack just the other day...and then now you have it on the eBay deals without the annoying tax, ugh. $16 for nothing.

    I'm gonna sit on my computer all night clicking refresh.

      Same here! I hope they do offer overnight shipping.
      I'll also be checking walmart at midnight on the 13th...

        Oh I didn't know Walmart was carrying it. Right on.

      • moelsen8

        wait, walmart's going to carry it (Nexus 4)? linky?

        that would be incredible. would mean saving money on shipping, and it could be in my hands in less than 24 hours. that would make my week.

      We'll probably post it within minutes of it going live too, as long as it's not in the middle of the night.

      • moelsen8

        Artem - could you guys comment on the likelihood of a Verizon N4 coming out in the next few months? Most sites have left the door open, albeit slightly. I'm prepared to pay an etf and go prepaid but I'd rather not until my contract is up in a year if possible. Are there any rumors or anything else to suggest this is a possibility in the coming months? The only thing really holding me back is my unlimited data.. it ain't never gonna come back for me on Verizon once I ditch...

        • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

          I really don't know, but chances are slim to none at the moment. Anything can happen, though.

          • moelsen8

            Cool thanks.

          • tye

            Any OTA update yet?

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            Before the Nexus is out? You're kidding, right?

          • Darshan-Josiah Barber

            An OTA update shortly before release has been mentioned several times, including on this site (see the N4 and N10 reviews). I think it was supposed to come out on the 11th. It's supposed to include all the 4.2 features that weren't yet enabled when the review units shipped. So I don't think tye was kidding, I think he/she was wondering if that had been pushed yet.

          • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

            Yeah, the OTA for the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 to enable missing functionality before launch - I thought he was asking about OTAs for other Nexus devices. Should be the 13th now.

        • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

          Call this an educated guess, based on a combination of two very specific details. Google has commented on reasons they won't be putting an LTE radio into the N4. If taken at face value, the reasons make it pretty clear that they aren't going to reverse that decision at this point in time. At the same time, Verizon has previously announced that they will not launch non-LTE devices going forward. Obviously, that's taking everything at face value and assuming they aren't going to budge or change their minds.

          The more practical argument is that Verizon and Google were obviously very unhappy dealing with each other and don't want to do it again (anytime soon). Looking at history, we know Verizon is the only carrier that could not maintain a working relationship with Microsoft, it was practically a feud. Verizon was also famously the first company Apple approached about forging an exclusive deal for the iPhone, but the two companies couldn't work out the details because Verizon was demanding too much control (and didn't want to give up a portion of profits from data service). In short, Verizon is terrible to work with and Google knows they don't have to do it.

          None of that is proof, I wouldn't even call it evidence, but I would say it hurts the odds that we'll see Verizon carrying the Nexus 4. Frankly, I would sooner expect to see Sprint carrying the Nexus 4 and Verizon will be left behind.

          • Broded

            Why would LG (not google, this phone is made by LG) put an LTE chip in their phone, if they already did put one in? "Yo dawg I heard you like lte chips so we put an LTE chip in yo Lte Chip so you can browse while you browse". Research before you post. http://www.xda-developers.com/android/inactive-4g-chip-found-lurking-inside-the-nexus-4/

          • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

            Normally, I'm happy to ignore idiots posting on old articles, but you deserve special attention for posting like a youtube commenter. Look at the dates on everything. I wrote that comment 25 days ago, 2 weeks before the post you linked to announcing that an LTE chip was found on the board. While the chip wasn't a complete surprise (because of the Optimus G heritage), it was still not really expected. Everybody was operating on the assumption that Google was speaking precisely about the lack of LTE.

            Say smarter things when you post...

    • Jaywrayson

      You can go to Google's Play Store and sign up to be notified by email when the phone is finally released....I signed up, of course ;)

      what's that, a geeky, lazy version of standing in line in front of an apple store?
      funny how you will probably think it's not the same thing, when it's precisely the same.
      it's a tuesday for fuck's sake, go to sleep and place your order before leaving for work.

      • NoriteS

        How's it the same?
        Waiting for Jelly Beans: In the comfort of your own home.. able to shag your missus on demand (as you have successfully convinced her that the waiting is making you tense). You can even take a leisurely crap with laptop on ... lap at anytime.
        Waiting for an Apple: Standing in the elements like zoo animals... attempting to look hip while others walk past and laugh at your dedication to have some minor updates and an elongated sibling of device currently in hand.

        Besides, only the weak go to bed before midnight.

      • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

        Funny how you think it is the same thing. You automatically associate it as being bad to stand in line at the store at midnight while some other people actually see it as a good thing. That's probably because you instantly associate it with Apple. It's just a thing fans do, I've seen lines around the block for midnight movie openings, shops releasing new sets of gaming cards, football games (Go Ducks!). I wouldn't be surprised if there were more than a couple of people doing the same thing for Android source drops and freshly released kernel code ;)

        For non-fan-related reasons I will be sitting on the page refreshing every 5-10 minutes, too. I'm doing it so I receive the phone before I leave on a 2 week trip. Of course, it doesn't hurt that I'm a total night owl and it's common for me to be awake at any time...Life of a programmer.

        • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

          Yeah I'll be up as well anyways so why the ef not, ya know?

      • http://www.facebook.com/lucyparanormal Daniel Tiberius

        Just because Apple fans do something doesn't make it automatically wrong. If I could wait in line in person for the Nexus 4 I would just because it's a fun experience. Also being proactive is the opposite of being lazy fyi.

      We don't know. I have to presume we were discussing US availability/shipping, but again, can't say for sure.

    • adi19956

      Almost definitely not. Nexus devices are sent from Dublin thus have to cross the Irish Sea. My guess is that however they do this, it will take longer than just overnight. We can only hope

        David... Can Android Police please ask Goggle how soon can we expect a 32GB Nexus 4 to be available for purchase.... By XMas... Or by first quarter 2013 or by Goggle I/O 2013 ???? I know Goggle knows how many of us are waiting for a 32GB Nexus 4 by what they saw with the Nexus 7 32GB announcement @ I/O 2013... And if the 32GB Nexus 4 will be price @ $399 like we expect...

  • MysticDeth

    I wouldn't bet on them shipping from Canada as the Nexus 7 shipped from the USA

    • Jonathan V. Malo

      Mine was shipped and ordered from Canada. No us shipping on it

  • http://twitter.com/dbest180 Derrick Best

    Nexus 4 will sell like hot cakes here in the UK. Slowly at first then picking up speed come Christmas time. Carphone Warehouse will retail them the most. Off contract it's £239 we have excellent sim only deals. It's perfect since we're only just starting LTE. Can't wait.

    • Paul

      I thought CPW is only selling them on contract?

    • coffmad

      couple of issues there
      1) Carphone Warehouse will be retailing at £379, i believe they suffered the same problem as Phone House in spain (LG sells hardware at much higher than Google's subsidized price)
      2) The Nexus 4 doesn't support LTE, so why the UK may just be seeing the beginning of the LTE network, the Nexus 4 will never benefit from it

      • http://twitter.com/PCSievers P.C. Sievers

        What he means, I think, is that most people here in the UK cant use LTE anyway so having it as HSPA+ is going to be the maximum speed for anyone outside of a really huge city anyway.

        Consumers for the most part arent going to be comparing the N4 with HSPA+ to PhoneX with LTE in a pure like for like as you would in the US which is significantly ahead of us, let alone countries like South Korea that are something ridiculous like 5 years ahead.

      • CarlosWay

        In the US LTE do not pass over 32mbs, there are many cities in US where HSPA+ get more speed than LTE, way a year to see real LTE power passing 40mbs.. But for now N4 with HSPA+ 42 it's a very good deal.. Enjoy..

        • Andrew

          I've gotten 35 mbs in a town that isn't even supposed to have LTE, and I remember when Lte first came to Verizon it was on average 50-70 mbs download speed so it does pass 32mbs

          • CarlosWay

            oooh men, take screen shoots of your speedtest.net and share it whit us..!!

          • http://profiles.google.com/olavamjelde Olav Alexander Mjelde

            the more users that use the network, the less speed you get.

      • adi19956

        I think he meant that because we're just getting 4G on one network, all the others have dropped their 3G contracts to the ground. I can now get an unlimited data contract with 200 minutes and unlimited texts for £9.90. That includes our sales tax at 20%

        • http://twitter.com/dbest180 Derrick Best

          Yes that's what I mean. Yes three will be early adopters to 4g but it will not be widely available for a while. Which makes a high end phone like this a bargain here.

  • GenkiLawyer

    Does anyone know where the nexus devices ship from in the US? Are they shipped from Google HQ in Mountain View?

    • http://www.facebook.com/jeffrey.rodriguez.71 Jeffrey Rodriguez

      I seriously doubt it given where the Nexus 7 ships from. Though I could be wrong, they ship other devices through UPS and at least on the East Coast, that means from their mega center in Kentucky. Out here in Virginia, I tend to get their stuff in about a day after the order ships. With the huge volume from the start, I'm just hoping to get mine by Friday.

      • GenkiLawyer

        Thanks. I assumed as much but I was still hoping that they were shipped from somewhere on the west coast. Oh well, I've waited this long, I can wait a few more days.

    • http://riteshtripathy.wordpress.com/ Ritesh Tripathy

      No product is shipped from a company's HQ. There are always warehouses and especially so in the case of companies that do not manufacture the products themselves.

    Wish you guys would've asked for the release time. Oh well, guess we'll wait and see.

  • lordmerovingian

    So what about the Nexus 7 3G? When is that launching?

    • Derrick Hodges

      I'm wondering the same thing.

      • lordmerovingian

        At only a $50 premium over the WiFi version, it's a no-brainer. And all for $299/32GB.

        • TylerChappell

          It's only a nobrainer if you are willing to pay more money for a data plan in which you only get 3G service. As for me, I will be using my phone to tether LTE to my 32GB Nexus 7 on Verizon's network, so in actuality, NOT getting the 3G model is the real no-brainer for me.

          • lordmerovingian

            I like being able to not waste my phone's precious battery life tethering in the first place. Having the choice to have data anywhere occasionally and being able to tether is an advantage to me. Plus I can always swap SIMS like I do now with my Pantech Element. Different strokes, different folks.

  • Google_is_the_Higgs_Boson

    Any word on any carriers getting this phone yet? Would love to get it on Sprint!!!

    • lordmerovingian

      Sadly, a CDMA version (VZW/Sprint) is definitely not in the offing.

    • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

      Right now there's nothing to suggest that a CDMA version is in the works. Of course, nothing is impossible, but with Sprint having recently released the Optimus G, and with the N4 lacking LTE, this speculator is doubting we'll see a Sprint-bound N4 any time soon (if at all).

  • dobbsy

    Before I go and do something stupid like order a phone that won't work on my network... this phone does work on Mobilicity in Canada, yes? Anyone know for sure?

    • Phil

      Yes it will.

    • Nimer55

      You will have to get your sim card cut. People do it on craigslist for $10.

      It supports the network/frequencies, but Mobilicity does not, as of yet, sell microsim cards (Unless they've added support for them recently). Though again, you can get it cut for $10 on craigslist.

      (No, I am not one of those people on craigslist that cuts it, I don't even know how to myself, but since I'm off contract I have contemplated buying a mobilicity sim card and testing it in my Nexus 4 once it gets here, to see how the service is.)

      • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

        Look on eBay (or any one of a few hundred sites) and you can find SIM card cutters. I've seen them sold for less than $10 with free shipping on a few sites. They are just a clipper with a microsim shaped die, most of the ones I've seen look like staple removers without the long teeth in front.

        It'll be faster (since there's no round trip) and probably cheaper to just order one, it's not like you'd ever need to use it again. However, if your friends decide to copy you, then you can have them buy lunch or something like that to pay you back for clipping their sim card ;)

    • http://www.androidpolice.com/ Artem Russakovskii

      Google would never answer this until they're ready to make an official announcement. If that even ever happens. I'd say there's a good chance it won't with the Nexus 4.

      • Y314K

        U'r probably right... Plus we should be seeing rumors or leaks of a 32GB version out there since the Nexus 4 was the worst kept secret since the raid info on bin laden... Sucks that we will probably not see one until I/O (end of June) next year if at all....

        But I would still ask if Android Police can continue to ask Google about it... Maybe Google might finally wake up and fix that major bug... Even if it's by their design... I know they cancelled the Galaxy Nexus 32GB version to force us to stream... But streaming is not for all of us...

        And I know Google will say that we can just buy another Android device if we need 32GB or a SD card slot (I would of prefer a 8GB Nexus 4 with a SD card slot... And no Google... SD cards are not complicated... Streaming is a lot more complicated and costly then SD storage)... But we can't... There is no other device other then a Nexus device that is Pure Android, Non carrier depended & that will have any updates or bug fixes within weeks instead of within 4, 6 or more months... There is no other choice out there but a Nexus 4...

        • http://www.facebook.com/cristi.istrate Cristi Istrate

          I predict the following:
          in 3-5 month they will release a 32GB version with LTE (for Europe at least)

          • http://twitter.com/PCSievers P.C. Sievers

            I will bet the farm against that. 3-4 months for a 32gb version, if at all, and no LTE in the N4 ever.

          • Y314K

            I doubt we will see anything related to LTE untill the Nexus 5 next November... As for a 32GB version I think it would come in late June of 2013 but only if we continue to make a stink about it... Maybe not even then...

    Someone should ask Google what's going on with prices in the non-Playstore countries. LG is price gouging pretty bad.

    • setspeed

      LG aren't price gouging, they are charging a fair price for the handsets they sell which Google aren't subsidising. Don't like the price? Buy from Google instead then.

      • http://riteshtripathy.wordpress.com/ Ritesh Tripathy

        And how exactly do you know that? My cousin works for LG UK and he has something else to say.

        • setspeed

          It's obviously a high end phone and the RRP set by LG reflects that. Why should they sell it for no profit, just because Google are? If Google weren't selling this handset for a ridiculously low price in the Play Store then no one would bat an eyelid at the LG price for a Nexus.
          Direct your anger at Google for not selling to every country from the Play Store. It's not LG's fault.

          • http://riteshtripathy.wordpress.com/ Ritesh Tripathy

            Again, how do you know they're making no profit with the Playstore price? I cannot point at Google for not selling in every country, because its not their choice. There are different retail regulations and challenges in every country and overcoming those may not be as simple as you might think. Google would definitely like to sell directly in every country if that was possible. Eventually more countries will be added for device sales but that will take time as Google makes agreements with more countries.
            And I know (for a fact) that if LG sold the Nexus 4 for just $50 more in non-Playstore countries, they'd still make a healthy profit. For public info, look at Asus and how much profit they made with the Nexus 7.

          • TylerChappell

            I think you pretty much nailed it, LG cares too much about their Optimus line and branding to cannibalize sales of Optimus G with its inferior UI.

  • andddlay

    Hmm, get cod @12am, play for a few hours while hitting refresh on my browser every ten minutes...sounds like a great plan!

  • Jeremy626

    2 phones max probably... right?

  • gumbald

    This is where they're showing their inexperience as a retailer. Knowing their usual treatment of the UK, it won't become available until after it's gone on sale in the US, therefore missing the shipping cut off for next day delivery. Pessimism or what!?

  • FrillArtist

    Since T-Mobile is selling it, can you walk into a store on the 13th and buy it if you don't want to wait for shipping?

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      I don't have a reference link for this and I haven't checked it myself, so you might want to take the time to confirm this.

      I was talking with a buddy who was looking into this last week and he discovered that buying the Nexus 4 from T-Mobile would cost something like $450 or $500 to purchase off-contract. I've also seen a lot of reports that claim TMo will only carry the 16 GB model (only an issue if you actually wanted the 8 GB). I'm not sure about you, but I don't think an additional $100-$150 is worth it to save a couple days of shipping. Again, I'm only relating what he told me, I'm not sure where the info came from and I can't immediately confirm the accuracy of it.

        That information came from the press releases from T-Mobile. Unless they've changed their minds in the last few days, that information is correct. If you want to buy the Nexus 4 from T-Mobile, they will charge you a total of $500.

        Holy crap. I assumed they would be selling it at Play Store prices. Eh, I'll just order it online then. What a joke. Thanks for the info.

    No preorders is a shame, but I guess they don't want a repeat of the logistical shambles they had for the Nexus 7... you had people buying the devices in stores on launch day, when the folks who had preordered weeks before were still waiting to see theirs.

    I told myself I wouldn't buy and I'd stick with my Galaxy Nexus (GSM), but I've done a complete 180 today. I will be buying the Nexus 4.

      That timer is pointing to midnight GMT. I'm not saying it won't be, and I'd be happy if it was 12 AM GMT, but it seems contrary to hour-specific timed releases we've seen in the past (well, in the form of digital releases) that usually follow PST.

      So, is this somebody making a guess or somebody who actually knows?

      Either way, I'll start throwing a couple of page loads at 4 PM PST, it's not inconveniencing me at all.

    Hire an editor. The expression is champing at the bit.

    • Freak4Dell

      Chomp and champ have similar definitions, and both expressions are valid. Champ isn't used widely in modern American English. Chomp is the much more common version.

    14th of nov is my birthday, who wants to buy me a present?

    For all the UK folks, the Nexus 4 will ship from computer 2000, who also handled the distribution of the Nexus 7 from the Play Store. We have a warehouse full of them at the minute so should be good to go once Google hit the button

      where is it? My N7 arrived from Ireland...

  • GER

    Is Walmart going to be selling them? I have called Walmart and they have no idea, at least that is what it seems.

    • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

      It's clearly stated in the press release that Walmart will carry the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10. It does not mention Walmart carrying the Nexus 4, which strongly implies they won't be. Walmart already has Nexus 7 units for sale. Rumors suggest they've already got Nexus 10 units on the shelves for sale, but I've checked the Walmart nearest to me and they aren't out yet (if they even have them). I haven't tried asking employees about the Nexus 10, mostly because I'm afraid of getting their brain matter on me.

    Any hints on whether the 16gb will be available in any brick-and-mortar stores? I hate waiting for shipping. :/

  • Prabh

    just ordered mine in canada PST !!!

  • Adam Estep

    Um, I don't know where you all get this"overnight shipping"thing. I never had that option. Only shipping is the 2 day variety.

    • mw630

      Me too. I'll still be happy if it ships today and in hand by Thursday-Friday.

  • Tom M.

    Bought the Nexus 10 online today (USA), two hours after it "dropped". Unless there were an insane amount orders, same-day shipping wasn't the plan after all.

  • http://codytoombs.wordpress.com/ Cody Toombs

    I've spoken with a fair number of people who ordered the N4 and so far everybody reports their Play Store orders page as showing:

    "Shipping estimate: November 15, 2012"

    Also, nobody has seen a shipping notice, tracking number, or any of the other paraphernalia we're used to from high dollar internet orders. The wallet receipt page also shows that Google got the order, but no line item for a shipment (as it normally would have for physical products).

    I'm not particularly concerned if the N4 didn't ship on the same day as promised, but I think the Google PR Rep might have made a promise that couldn't be kept. Unless they intended to say it would ship within 24 hours (1 day's time), I'm pretty sure this was a mistake. If the Nov 15 shipment estimate turns out to be accurate and 2 day shipping as the only option, people are either going to get the N4 on Saturday or Monday (depending on the shipper and the possibility of Saturday delivery). Here's to hoping they split the difference and get the N4 out today (the 14th) so we should all get them on Friday.

    Hi, i check wit Google, do ya think the mass shortage will last long? I just decided to try and get N4, just to see they disappear like hotcakes! Actually in 20 min. of debuting!!!! I have 2 Nexus 7 tablets and thought the N4 is a good phone to have.....since I'm with t-mobile prepaid.

  • Neil

    Will the Nexus 10 if bought in the US will work in Ireland?
