Update 3: It appears that both the 8 and 16GB Nexus 4 are going back and forth between "In Stock" and "Coming Soon." Customers still looking to get their hands on a Nexus 4 are encouraged to keep their fingers on the refresh key, or simply check back a little later when things have settled down. If we get word that one or both variants are out of stock, we'll update.

Update 2: Some customers are reporting that both variants are now listed as "Coming Soon" again. Could it be that the switch was simply flipped too early? We'll update this post as we learn more.

Update: Well, that was fast. It appears (according to a few sources) that the 16GB Nexus 4 is already sold out – for now, anyway. We'll keep you updated.

Prospective Nexus 4/10 owners of Australia, the time is now. Google has just opened up orders for the two new Nexus devices for those who have been anxiously hitting "refresh" in Australia, offering (of course) both the 8GB and 16GB variants of the N4, and the 16/32GB versions of the N10.

Just in case somehow you've missed what makes the Nexus 4 one of the best Android phones ever, here's a quick rundown (of course you should also check out our review for a full look).

  • 4.7" IPS display at 1280x768 (that's 320ppi)
  • Qualcomm S4 Pro processor
  • 8MP camera and 1.3MP front shooter
  • Unlocked GSM compatibility (of course)
  • 8/16GB internal storage
  • 2GB RAM
  • Micro USB, SlimPort HDMI ports
  • 2100mAh battery
  • The latest and greatest Android 4.2

And here's a look at the N10 (which we also reviewed here):

  • Brilliant 10.055" display at 2560x1600 (300ppi)
  • Exynos 5 dual-core processor
  • 5MP main camera and 1.9MP front shooter
  • Micro USB, Pogo Pin, Micro HDMI ports
  • 9000mAh battery pack
  • Android 4.2

There's not much more to say – if you're an Australian who's been awaiting the new Nexus family members' November 13th release date, head to the Play Store and claim your own devices immediately. Those in other countries need wait just a little while longer to reserve their own brand new Nexus. For those wondering, it appears that the Nexus 7 3G is still "coming soon," though the Nexus 4's new bumpers are available.

Play Store: Nexus 4 (8GB, 16GB) Nexus 10 (16GB, 32GB)

Thanks Daniel, Ray, and Henry!

    Any thoughts on when the US can order?
    Are we talking midnight or tomorrow sometime? (EST)

    • Justin W

      My bet is 3am for your timezone (12am PST). I think I'm going to wait until midnight to make sure it doesn't go on tonight before I wait until tomorrow.

      • Derek Duncan

        i don't understand how australia gets orders first? And if so, does that mean midnight local time?

        • Alex

          Cause maybe it is already the 13th of November here?

        • Justin W

          It's midnight local time as far as where Google's National offices are (I'm guessing), which would be why for us it would be 12am PST. Again, this is just an educated guess, I have no proof (solid or otherwise) for this.

          • http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperElvisfreshlyATT Freshly_Snipes

            I would agree. Same with T-Mo...Everything those guys over there do is PST

        • http://www.youtube.com/user/SuperElvisfreshlyATT Freshly_Snipes

          lol...I hope you were joking

  • ASH

    Just ordered mine! Can't wait! :D

  • neyfunb

    Ordered but failed on checkout, then received a confirmation email. Confused. Oh well if it does indeed get rejected no harm, I dont NEED the phone but do want one.

  • SleepLessLarry

    Yeahhh!!!

    Just ordered mine!

    Guess it's 13th Midday not Midnight.

    Lost a night's sleep for nothing :L

    • http://profiles.google.com/drewprice Drew Price

      It's ok, you'd have been sleepless anyways.

  • Andrew

    Just ordered mine :D cant wait, for once Australia got somthing first

  • JuMe

    the 16GB has sold out 5min after the release ...

    • bids

      yeah it seems that way. glad i got in early then!

    • http://wakoopa.com/yo2boy yo2boy

      Is it sold out for just Australia or from the entire Play Store?

      • Kenny

        Maybe just Australia's allocation.

      • bids

        just sold out in Australia but you can bet there will be more sold out's for the 16gb all over the world get in quick. It was gone here in Australia within 10 mins

    • iamthecosmos

      uh oh... this has me very worried! Small supplies all round? :O I better be on it as soon as they go on sale UK time huh!

      • GazaIan

        Let's call it unexpected high demand. It makes me love Google more.

    • JG

      Just like the N7s.... I'm hoping Google keeps the trend up, noticing people prefer the larger storage capacity & decide to release a 32GB N4.... Cloud storage is great and all, but I, for one at least, still prefer to rely on local storage, its faster, uses less battery and I can access it anywhere (underground, in the middle of no where, etc)...

  • bids

    just ordered mine. Its shipping from Singapore so a few days before delivery

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

    Congrats to the first Nexus 4 and 10 buyers on the planet!

    • Andreas

      Thanks. I was one of the lucky ones to grab a 16GB N4 before it got sold out :D

      • DriodMan

        I some how feel the images are fake, 2nd images shows Nexus 4 as $399.. Any thoughts?

        • Matt

          Australian prices. I managed to grab 2 in time. $399 for 16gb.

    • http://twitter.com/mr_scherb mr_scherb

      hell yeah! i can sleep well now knowing it'll be coming to me soon!

  • captylor

    I don't get it. If it is shipping from Singapore, how come they don't offer it for the Singapore market? Is it because the market is too small?? Arrrgh!!!

    • bids

      Singapore is a tax haven and the busiest port in the world. so if they sell from there they maximise profits

  • http://filmitnow.moonfruit.com/ Brandon Wood

    I will be pissed if I miss the order here in the US and it sells out. I cannot wait another 3 weeks! Lol. Guess I'm gonna stay up all night. Hope it opens at around 3AM (EST).

  • imartificial

    I was awake for the whole freaking night. Anyway was awake at the right time and ordered one.

  • Daniel Holmes

    Bumpers also appear to be sold out...

    • Greg Neal

      They were never available

  • g8oo87g

    Did you Aussies get email notifications? Is so, how soon before the devices went on sale?

    • ASH

      I still haven't seen an email, just had the play store page open waiting for it to come up.

    • Mohammad Danish

      No notification, nothing.

  • Sootie

    Yay +11 timezone though I think I'm going to buy mine when I'm in america later in the year to miss out on the awesome country tax ($400 aud for 16gb even though Kangaroo $ are worth more)

    • http://twitter.com/namd88 Nam Dang

      Still a good deal for me :-(. I'm in Japan and I can't even buy it :-(. Probably I'll have to wait for some unofficial channel like Expansis (they take care of import taxes and duties)

  • http://twitter.com/namd88 Nam Dang

    I want to move to Australia right now :-(

  • http://twitter.com/parker2004 Parker

    Purchased 1x16GB Nexus 4, shame I couldn't get the bumper case but I'll be purchasing that at a later date, maybe even bundle it with a wireless dock or whatever.

  • http://twitter.com/ao9news andy o

    It would be very helpful if one could see the time (and year) the post went up on this site.

  • moelsen8

    damn that sucks. i have a job and family and crap. if we're talking a similar 20 minute window in the US i might as well just get ready to wait longer.. especially since google can just decide to flip the switch at any given moment.

  • skitchbeatz

    I'm scared i'm going to miss it tomorrow. :-/

    • http://filmitnow.moonfruit.com/ Brandon Wood

      Me too :/

  • mak100

    Nexus 4, 16GB out of stock in 5 mins? I wonder how many phones they've produced.. 5?

  • http://twitter.com/WallyMasterson Wally Masterson

    I would love to know how many were actually available in Australia. So frustrating, to make a great phone and then only have enough for Australia to sell out in 20 minutes.

  • caleb

    the US page changed. No longer says the 13th

    • Sam Sullivan

      I wonder what's up with that?!

  • Justas

    Notice that the yellow "Coming soon! Available for purchase on Tuesday, Nov. 13th" box is gone on the Aussie Play store next to Nexus 4... Not a good sign, huh..

    • Sam Sullivan

      Gone in the US store too (its there for the N10, but I want the N4).

  • Bakaouji

    Keep in mind that the Nexus 4 16gb was on for 20 minutes, the 8gb for an hour or two, and the Nexus 10s are still available. The most likely explanation is that they had very little stock of the nexus 4, so they could trumpet how quickly they sold out.

  • Greg Neal

    You're correct with the second edit, the 8GB version says coming soon now as well.

  • john

    what time did it go on sale?

  • what time did it go on sale?

    what time did it go on sale?

  • http://twitter.com/ao9news andy o

    No word yet on the wireless charging orb, right? It would be great if one could order the phone and charger at once, without having to swallow twice the Play store's stupid obligatory 2-day shipping prices.

    • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

      Nope, no word yet unfortunately.

  • Robo

    Godammit Google what are you doing to us?!
    My order shows as "complete"...
    So maybe.... that little window of purchase was a "test of the best"...
    They have limited edition Nexus 4 to those that sat there hitting F5 and got the early worm.
    Or maybe the mofos just made a mess of things!!
    ANDROID POLICE.... put lights and sirens on and find out please???

    • K

      are you in US?

  • Sam Sullivan

    Nothing at midnight EST, here's to midnight PST!

  • chronus719

    If there's one thing Apple knows how to do, it's a product launch. At least they tell you what time the newest iPhone will launch on their page. Google's left us guessing. =/

  • http://filmitnow.moonfruit.com/ Brandon Wood

    Is it possible for one of the AP staff members to contact Google about why the yellow box saying "available on Nov. 13th" is now missing from the Play Store?

  • FrillArtist

    It's almost like Google don't even care. Absolutely no communication on when it will be available. What a botched release.

    • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

      How does that "botch" the release? I see no responsibility on Google's end to provide down-to-the-minute information for die-hard fans. A date is good enough for most customers.

      • TK

        It would be nice if there's a shortage.

  • quappz

    All you people buying coz you just want one and dont need one p*iss off!! i lost my S3 in thailand a few weeks ago and need a new phone! let me in!!!

  • http://twitter.com/psych2L Joseph Lee

    You see google, the higher capacity variant sold out first. We want phones with more memory!!!

  • Sam Sullivan

    midnight PST, nothing....ahhhh the pain (3AM) I want the N4!

  • chronus719

    So I'm guessing this is a no-go for midnight PST, huh?

    • http://filmitnow.moonfruit.com/ Brandon Wood

      guess so. well, this sucks

  • Ramiro Fernandez
