Update: At the time of last update, the 16GB Nexus 4 is consistently listed as "Coming Soon," with the 8GB version going up and down. The 32GB Nexus 10 is also consistently listed as "Coming Soon." If we receive any word that these device's are again available, we will update this post.

Just a few (long) hours after Australians got their shot at being the first kids on the block with a brand new Nexus device, it looks like orders have opened up for the US and Canada as well. Note: Since these devices just became available, you'll likely notice some errors or inconsistencies in availability. If a device truly appears to be out of stock, we'll update this post accordingly.

As with Australia's launch, all variants of both devices are available – customers can pick up an 8 or 16GB S4 Pro-packing Nexus 4, and a 16 or 32GB Nexus 10 with its super-sharp 2560x1600 display (that's 300ppi, by the way). Of course the Nexus 7 HSPA+ variant is making an appearance too.

n41 n101 n71

Readers looking to get their hands on either device in the US or Canada would be well-advised to claim their orders immediately. The 16GB Nexus 4 sold out from the Play Store in under an hour in Australia, though it may have been the case that the Play Store's switch was simply flipped too soon. Either way, head to the appropriate link below to grab your own brand new Nexus.

Play Store: Nexus 4 (8GB, 16GB) Nexus 10 (16GB, 32GB) Nexus 7 HSPA+

  • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

    I was able to add a 16 to my cart, but couldn't check out. Now it's saying coming soon for the 16 again! :(

    • Slacker

      Yep, same here. Awesome.

  • nctrnl

    They both say coming soon...FML

  • MichaelK

    It is going back and forth from being available to not being available. Keep trying!

  • http://twitter.com/xhaxol Vetal

    got 2 nexus 4 16gb and one bumper, the wife wants a different color on her bumper so we could tell them appart.

    • FrillArtist

      Pretty sure you won't need a bumper to tell the phones apart unless y'all have the exact same lock codes, apps, gmail and such.

      • Kenny O

        Do you know how many time I just grab my phone, put it in my pocket and run out the door without looking at the screen......different color bumpers is a must for me and my wife.

        • http://twitter.com/misterE33 Mr E

          sounds like you guys need some pony or twilight stickers... for your wife's phone...

          • Kenny O

            lmfao.....my wife would kick my ass if I put a twilight sticker on her phone.....I guess I'll have to go with ponies

        • http://twitter.com/xhaxol Vetal

          yep, google needs to make more colors like green and red.... $20 for a bumper is a steep but no one else is selling cases or bumpers yet, Im sure is they had more than one color they would bank it considering those bumpers cost less than a $1 to make.

  • http://twitter.com/xhaxol Vetal

    looks like the 16gb verision is out of stock, glad I didnt come back at 9 am pacific

  • David Kerkes

      • moelsen8

        yeah. this is ridiculous.

    • GreatNews

      got this problem more than once!

  • http://www.facebook.com/francois.roy.3958 Francois Roy

    Worst paper launch ever. Gotta admit Apple provides.

  • nukeblitz

    @androidpolice I demand that you guys demand an explanation from Google. Why the errors? Why so little stock? Why no preorder system? Why can't people just place an order and it gets delivered when ready?

    • ryan

      personally, the way the pre-orders were messed up with the nexus7, i wouldn't want that again.

      • nukeblitz

        Well, at least you know it will be delivered at some point. Pretty important in this case as we know that we won't get the same awesome price outside the play store

        • ryan

          there will be more of these phones on the play store soon, haha.

    • moelsen8

      what a clusterF.

    • http://www.facebook.com/andddlay Andrew Black

      if only every online order with this much hype went smoothly...

  • http://twitter.com/xhaxol Vetal

    and the site is down, wow, just wow.

  • wmgallagher

    I just happend to check the canadian Play store at 11:35 and it was up and was able to order 2 n4 16gb already got my conformation, then less then a min later it was back to notify me. they couldnt have sold out that quickly, what did they have 5 in stock?

  • Dominik

    Had 16, bumper and tablet in my cart. There were errors all over the place for 15 minutes and now the 16 is showing as sold out and everything else just keeps dropping from the cart. Lame.

  • Alex

    ahhhh, got there super early and got a 16gb Nexus!

  • Matt

    Just ordered mine! 16GB Nexus 4 from Florida. Took a few tries until it actually added to the cart, but when it did, boy did I click that "buy" button fast lol If Australia sold out in less than an hour, I wonder when it will here in the US :-/

    • Sam Sullivan

      16GB is gone.

      • Sven79

        No it's not; I just got one 2 minutes ago

  • Sam Sullivan

    16 GB is sold out. Lots of glitches like other countries, I got mine at 11:35 they sold out about 15 minutes ago.

  • http://twitter.com/xAndr00 Andrew

    I added it to my cart, got to google checkout, then bought it and it stalled when purchasing...

  • m_evans10

    16GB errored a million times, then Wallet wouldn't load. Looks sold out now. Unreal.

  • Dominik

    Tablet's sold out too now.

  • http://twitter.com/MysteryMannnnn Mystery Man

    Still can't proceed to check out

  • V

    Lame... Was there right about when it started, but could never input payment info. Now they're sold out. Nice going Google!

    • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

      Same here, it's incredible they couldn't forsee this kind of demand/stress on the servers.

  • feranick

    No longer accepting orders (Coming soon...). It's 12.00PM EST. Sigh...

  • http://www.facebook.com/gustavobeckman Gustavo Beckman

    nexus 4 16gb comming soon in us

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

    Argh, didn't get the 16GB. Never made it through. Congrats to all who did. No way in hell am I getting the 8GB.

    • nukeblitz

      Do you think resellers are buying them in bulk or is this just Google scrwwing up.

      Or is it just a marketing ploy and they'll be available again tomorrow

      • Josh Nichols

        Why would resellers buy them in bulk when there's going to be much more stock in probably a week or so?

        • Slacker

          There are a lot of impatient people out there. I checked ebay yesterday, and people were selling 16GB "pre-orders" for $475...and people were bidding on them.

          • dinzkie

            that's true. exactly what i saw.

    • Maxwell McQuirter

      Somehow I got one after hours are refreshing, opening multiple tabs, praying, and cursing (5:13pm CST). The trick is to wait until it's in your cart and keep pressing proceed until it processes. If you leave your cart, the order will disappear as I learned. My order went through (received confirmation) even after I called and they said it was out of stock. So essentially Google failed us all today,. Seriously they need to step up their expectations of demand, clearly they underestimated it today. But I still got a 16gb Nexus 4, so I'm happy about that.

    • Jay

      Artem, why are you guys not making a case of the fact that this nexus launch by the almighty Google has, for most people, been a disaster??

      Availability aside. No email notifications, the server lag, g-wallet crashes and the repeated comments of users having a hard time purchasing AND some (including you) missing out due to Google's poor management of this launch would be a news worthy story no?

  • nukeblitz

    Do you guys think that resellers are buying them in bulk?

    • nukeblitz

      Since you can't get the same awesome price else where that is. Somehow this doesn't make sense that they'd get sold out so fast. I guess we will know on e they start appearing by the cart load on ebay

      • http://twitter.com/xhaxol Vetal

        There are listings on ebay already $475 lots of opportunists
        out there

  • wmgallagher

    glad i didnt listen to all that crap about noon PST. they shouldnt post that if its not 100% how may where waiting till 10 to noon or 5 to. they were up just after 11:30

    • Kenny O

      Can't really blame AP for that one, they clearly stated that this was the information that they received from calling Google customer support.

      • wmgallagher

        yeah true but i bet a lot of people took it as gospel probably and missed out

        • Stephen

          I caught it at 11:55 and was able to get one

  • Nexus-1-N-Done

    And the 16 gig is sold out.

  • NW_Raver

    THANKS FOR THE EMAIL GOOGLE

    • http://twitter.com/theother404 Robert Clark

      Haha felt the same, way, I signed up for the email but had a feeling they wouldn't send them, so I stayed on the site refreshing it every few minutes and managed to get one.

      • donttrollmepeople

        i wanted to do that because like you... i didnt think i would ever see the email... but i slept in until 1:45 central. silly me for thinking that google would understand the demand for their products.

    • Matthew

      They forgot about the people who wanted to get notified when the Nexus 7 was available as well a couple of months ago.

  • http://twitter.com/MysteryMannnnn Mystery Man

    My cart has been updated and the 16gb removed because its out of stock -_-

  • tery_cota

    coming soon status in Alberta Canada

  • Rick Fisher

    I'm not giving up and I'm pretty furious. I had N4 8gb, N4 16gb, and N7 16gb all in my cart, went to check out and hit accept and buy, stared at a blue circle for a while and it said to wait momentarily, and it never changed from that. I wrestled back and forth with it trying to add things to my cart between server errors and try again, but nothing.now it says it's coming soon and on google wallet and google play orders page my order isn't listed. Fuck that, Google.

    • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

      Same behavior here. Frustrating to have stuff in your cart, then not able to purchase.

      • Rick Fisher

        I have a temp charge on my credit card for it. Maybe it ended up going through and the page never got to refresh, I guess we'll see, but I still have 0 confirmation, $800+ missing from my account, and a sinking feeling in my stomach.

        • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

          No pending charges for me, so I'm sure I missed out. Hopefully you got the device you wanted!

        • mrsbelpit

          go to your google wallet page and sign in. You'll probably see your receipt there.

          • http://twitter.com/RaspberryDuff Matt

            Yup, I wasn't sure mine made it through but it appeared on my Wallet page and I got an email.

          • mrsbelpit

            Congrats!

  • kindrudekid

    damn it i want one to be shipped to me before 15th december!!!!!

    m going back to india and i want to get one for my gf.... i told her to hold off on buying till next year ..... you better not disappoint me google!!!

  • The Seventh Son

    Holy wow that was quick... This blows :(

  • tery_cota

    Now, I give up on Nexus 4. I'll buy later, when it is available

  • http://twitter.com/chadmd23 chadmd23

    Hmmm, I have an 8 & 16 GB charged to my CC. Not sure if either actually went thru though. Hope I can cancel the 8GB.

  • Fahad Sami

    hey guys, check your CC accounts, I have two $340 charges pending even though I never got to the confirmation page! Yikes.

    • Jeremy626

      fuck same here

      • http://profiles.google.com/jonbethea Jonathan Bethea

        relax i bet you they will refund one of them soon

    • wmgallagher

      the money was missing from my credit card account instantly... the conformation came 25 mins or so later.

  • JT

    Purchased a 32 gb nexus 10!

  • buck09

    and how long before they actually are able to deal with the demand? can't even believe how pathetic this was for a launch

  • Kenny O

    Hey look, both Chromebooks are in stock

    • GreatNews

      who cares about Cromebooks??? we need the Nexus 4

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

    Argh I missed the 16gb by a few minutes it appears... Trying to grab an 8gb now and can't checkout :(

  • Eric

    Is it possible that the 16GB is sold out already??? Says the 8 is available, but the 16 is still "Coming Soon" after being clickable for only a few minutes.... LOCKED OUT :(

  • Gregory Hoerner

    I'm P!$$3d... My order "went through", that is to say my credit card has been charged the $340, but NO order confirmation from Google whatsoever, nothing in wallet, no response from cart; to add insult to injury, my N7 still can't get the 4.2 update... losing brownie points, Google, losing brownie points...

    • Josh Nichols

      If you were charged you'll get an email. Calm down at least you got that far.

    • Gregory Hoerner

      NVM... just got the confirmation, mine is ordered!!!!

  • lg21

    Hey had same errors as others with Google Wallet, then it went through. It charged my bank account but I have no confirmation of my order from google. -_-. Does this mean I got one or no?

    • David Kerkes

      Yeah you should receive an email in a few minutes.

      • lg21

        ^^^ Yup did about 20 mins later. It is super slow right now for sure. THERE IS A GOD THOUGH : ), SO HAPPY. sorry for others that are having issues

  • Sam Sullivan

    Both models sold out now.

  • Cuvis

    Still says "Coming Soon" for me. Weird.

    • Sam Sullivan

      You missed it. 16GB was up for 20 minutes and 8GB was up for 40 minutes (starting around 11:30 PST)

      • Dominik

        It showed as being available for 20 minutes, but only 5 of those minutes could you actually get a successful order through. The rest was google emptying your cart for you non-stop and if you did get past that the Buy page would just stall, or come back with an error.

  • Raghavendra Sarva

    Yahooooo!!! booked Google Nexus 4

    • GreatNews

      how and which one? 8GB or 16GB?

      • Raghavendra Sarva

        16GB..... was hitting Enter at the address bar when received error... after 3 errors it asked for captcha... once filled the captcha BOOM.. "
        Order placed
        Thank you. Your order has been placed, and you will receive an email shortly with the details of your purchase."

  • youareme7

    this is shocking, I was not at all thinking this phone would be selling out so fast! I had one in my cart and everything but it just kept disappearing.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.page.397 Richard Page

    removed from cart Now I cant get me Effin phone.

  • tyrik g

    I pressed the "Accept and Buy" button now it says...
    "Your purchase will complete momentarily ..." (for the last 10 minutes)
    It shows that it was charged to my credit card, does that mean it went through?

    • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

      I'm in the same boat. I'll come back and update this comment when I figure it out.
      EDIT: The consensus is that if you were charged, you should get an email soon.

    • Jeremy626

      i first got an error message twice... saw my CC activity, pending charges.
      now i check my email and google says it went thru... weird.

  • markucsb

    what a f*cking joke, disappeared out of my cart, way to go Google, you may have just changed my mind for me.

  • PLlabo

    I guess being an iSheep has its benefits. Apple does care about its customers and treats them right. They say a device will be released at X date X time, and they do it.

    If I ever migrate to iOS one day it will be because of Google's lack of respect for its customers. Things like this just reflect underlying issues: Google just doesn't care.

    They never gave us a specific launch time.

    They never sent the e-mail notificaton for users who asked to be notified of the launch.

    They told us on phone they would release it at 9:00AM PST, but released it sooner.

    • chronus719

      I was even on at 9:50MST (8:50PST), saw it, and could never get checkout to complete because my cart was going insane. Terribly handled launch, if you ask me.

    • enomele

      Your talking about an online launch with millions upon millions of people ordering at the same time... but you are right, Google has no respect for its customers.

    • kal326

      I would wager to say Google grossly under estimated device demand. Systems became overloaded and things snowballed from there. They scrubbed launches in several countries to try to provide additional supply to those that had already gone on sale.

      Apple on the other hand would pompously build up eCommerce infrastructure large enough they expect half the planet to buy a new iDevice launch day. Though Apple launch events aren't without fault on this in the past. Did somebody forget the activation fiasco where devices could not activate through iTunes and the order requests grinding AT&T's systems to a halt?

  • QwietStorm

    I can't believe how badly this was handled. Sitting right in my cart and nothing but errors. What did they take all their servers offline and provide only 10 phones for sale? How could they not have enough to last longer than a few minutes.

  • Nexus-1-N-Done

    And that's the end of the 8 gig. Nexus 4 is all sold out.

    • GreatNews

      it goes and comes just keep refreshing

  • GreatNews

    this is already crazy! Errors plus errors plus errors and keeps on Disappearing from my cart and comes back!!! not right Google!

  • http://twitter.com/SportsAndTV Brian Pearcy

    I wouldn't be shocked it they let some more out sometime later in the day, but I guess that is easy for me to say since I was a lucky one.

  • http://twitter.com/xAndr00 Andrew

    update: I actually got through, added it to the cart, clicked purchase, and the cart stalled. I checked my google wallet 10 minutes later and there's now a pending charge for my 16gb NEXUS 4!!!

    • http://twitter.com/SportsAndTV Brian Pearcy

      Others are reporting the same thing but you need an email for conformation, good luck.

  • http://www.facebook.com/richard.page.397 Richard Page

    This Just pisses me off.

    even the 8 GB is gone now. i was getting desperate and almost bought one but now it's gone.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

    even the bumper says coming soon after I had it on my cart and it dissapeared

  • buck09

    no idea if i got one or not. i have a charge pending in google wallet. either way this blew raw donkeys. if you have 4 million people sign up for email notifications you don't decide that 20,000 units is the way to go.

    • http://twitter.com/theother404 Robert Clark

      I think that means you did get one, as mine says pending and google has already charged my bank account.

  • dinzkie

    that just sucks. oh well. maybe it indeed was a sellout.

  • yy44

    For a company that prides itself on bandwidth and services, this was pathetic. Thirty minutes of the phone disappearing in and out of my cart. And never being able to proceed beyond that. What a joke.

    • Michael Lane

      Exact same thing happened to me. About half an hour in limbo, then "screw off" with an empty cart and now "Coming Soon".

    • QwietStorm

      I agree, but I just placed my order about 20 minutes ago. I don't know if they still do have stock, and it's just their servers messing up, or they don't have stock and their servers are still messing up, but if you want the phone today as planned, please keep refreshing that product page.

  • chronus719

    Bullshit. Had it in my cart (on multiple occasions), and wouldn't ever go through with payment before disappearing out of my cart.

    Edit to above: This was the initial launch. Went back at about 11:00am MST and was able to get a Nexus 4 16GB. I think they might be throttling stock. Keep checking back.

    • GreatNews

      got the same problem more than once!!!

    • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

      Same here - this seems to be what a lot of us experienced unfortunately.

      I just hope the time to restock isn't too long.

  • Dominik

    I accidentally stumbled there right as it started and had no problems at all adding all devices and even making some changes to my order. But turns out the Credit Card I had on file was old. I updated the info within 2 minutes and by then all hell had already broken lose on the site. After sending my purchase confirmation, then payment problem notification, google just straight cancelled my order, never gave me a chance to update my payment info like they usually let you do for 7 days after the order.

  • tyrik g

    my credit card was charged too... but no conformation

    All I see is "Your purchase will complete momentarily ..."

    • Jeremy626

      u might get an email. that just happened to me. i got the phone

  • tyrik g

    confirmation*

  • dicked

    Total joke. Wasted my night, morning, etc., only to be dicked in the mouth while trying to check out. Totally unacceptable.

      The no contract price at TMO is going to be $499

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

        why would they sell it so high when the price is $350 for the 16gb?

        • http://twitter.com/MysteryMannnnn Mystery Man

          To trick value plan users into paying 500.

  • http://www.facebook.com/kristin.aliberto Kristin Aliberto

    Check your Google Wallet transactions. I had two transactions go through, even though I thought none did. It put two holds on my account but I was able to cancel the other payment luckily. I haven no idea if the other order is actually going to get processed...

  • JH

    terrible just terrible. way to fail

  • dinzkie

    man, i'm wondering how many google stocked. that was so fast.

  • Senor_VALE

    This is the largest BS I have ever seen wtf GOOGLE I trusted u

  • bs

    way to ruin my night AND morning. 100000 attempts all for errors. thanks google.

  • Omar

    Google better get their shit together and restock the devices quickly. There are a lot of disappointed customers out there..

  • trjcasper

    For those of us who got one...was this process streamlined by having google wallet set up already due to owning a wallet capable phone already? I'm thinking we had an advantage here. My purchase was mostly trouble free. I selected 2 phones, 2 bumpers and hit buy. Wait wait wait some more, don't panic the servers are busy, uh-oh, wait maybe it's okay....GOT IT!

    • chronus719

      I had wallet set up on mine already and got to the final charge page, but it would never load.

    • BrianMon

      I used the stock browser on a Gingerbread handset to order mine. Saw a few errors while in my cart but several refreshes did the trick. I specifically had a few credit cards in my GW account so that would not present any issues for ordering. Against the odds that my order was a success since I was on a cheapie handset and not near a tablet or PC. Whre. Two days of waiting now.

    • Kenny O

      I didn't have a wallet capable phone, but I did have my wallet account all set up. I wasn't going to base everything on information from a Google customer service rep so I've been hitting refresh all morning. Luckily I was in a long meeting so I had the ability to stay at the computer. When it went live at 11:30ish my order went right through and I got the confirmation email two seconds later.

    • wmgallagher

      i had all my cc info in my google account so it all went without a hitch for me. It was all of about 30 seconds if not less for me to click on it, change it to 2 phones in my cart and hit my address and then confirm payment

    • Sam Rajendra

      Pretty much how my experience went. I got a 16gb + Bumper. I was signed in, and all ready to go.

  • BrianMon

    Oh yeah - took a few tries and cart refreshes, but got my 16GB N4 ordered, and just got the receipt in my inbox with an order number. Sweet! It feels surreal, as I was in a meeting with a holdover Huawei Fusion 2 I picked up last week for $99 to tide me over (sold my GNex on ebay last week). I ordered the N4 with that phone incognito while in a meeting using the Gingerbread 2.3 browser. Outstanding.

    Google really needs to work on their expectations and communications on launches like this -- the enthusiast community and those who despise contracts are more vocal and numerous than they realize.

  • Senor_VALE

    Why the F did someone think it was a good idea to let them yank the phone out after it was in your cart already

  • chronus719

    I'm holding out hope for now... Apparently the UK Play Store has a greyed-out "Order" button, and an active "Notify Me" button. I'm only seeing the notify button on the US Play Store, so I'm hoping there's just some server lag right now? (I know, I know... grasping at straws right now)

  • Senor_VALE

    The least they could have done is let you place your info to be first come first serve when they do get back in stock

  • GreatNews

    just wondering is this the real Google what we talk about here or its just a Chinese fake copy???? this is crazy! i was 1 of the first to notice it on the play store at 11:33 EST and i never had the chance it should finish my order!

  • Christopher Iverson

    And suddenly a wild beta tag appears on the play store

    /joke

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

    I was able to snatch two (I didn't go through the confirmation page so I thought I failed). But yeah it showed up on my Wallet and I just got the confirmation email (like 30 minutes late)

  • suzu

    Now, I somehow feel those isheeps waiting in line are better than this. At least they are surely getting the phone, and we could only click F5 for errors then see it disappears in our carts ;/

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

    it was never like this for the nexus one, then again they did had pre orders

  • PhineasJW

    What a cluster#&*!.

    Can't believe Google blew it this badly. Someone's head should roll for this one...

    -- No pre-orders.

    -- Pathetic server capacity.

    -- Very poor communication over the actual time -- which actually began ~30 minutes earlier than what Google told everyone.

    -- Extremely underestimated stock...

  • dicked

    To top it off, did anybody ever receive the email they said they would send telling us when it was available? I signed up two weeks ago. Nothing.

    • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

      never

    • efan

      i think they were gone before those emails went out

    • bobby.tables

      Yep, got the mail. Here in Germany the sale started at 9:00 a.m., the mail was sent at 9:37 a.m. - after all units were already sold. So maybe they stopped the remaining emails from going out to avoid another f*** up.

  • Kid Canada

    From 9 to 11 I mashed F5 every hour on the hour for two minutes, at 11:35 I thought I would just give it another try for some reason and I saw the buy now button, got through the process no problem and without error messages. The purchase is still listed as "pending" in google wallet and I still haven't received an email confirmation but I have a screenshot of the "order placed" screen so I hope this means my 16 gig Nexus 4 is on the way.

  • FrillArtist

    I told David Ruddock that this would be a botched release. No pre orders, lack of communication, pathetic server capacity etc.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

    guys 8gb is back, nvm is back to coming soon

  • glans till i make her dance

    nexus 4 said add to cart for a second then poof

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

    guys I would say keep trying I just saw both 8gb and 16gb say add to cart but then said cart was empty

  • GreatNews

    idiots!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Google's biggest threat on the fight against Apple is Google itself.

  • Akhil Sood

    Got mine! VPN Ftw.

  • http://twitter.com/AP1618 AP1618

    8GB Nexus 4 is also sold out.

  • Sven79

    Hey I just got a 16GB Nexus 4 three minutes ago; keep the faith, and keep pressing the F5 key.

    Good luck

  • N1-N-Done

    The 8 gig is back up!!!!

  • Shaihbaz Chaugle

    Booked 16gb just 5 min back.....

  • Christopher Iverson

    Everyone install an auto refresher and refresh that page every 2 seconds until they have more stock. Show El Goog we are serious about this

  • chronus719

    Holy shit! I just reloaded the page and was able to get a 16GB Nexus 4! Don't give up hope!

  • Root

    Nexus needs a sellout to get headlines. hopefully they are just holding back supply a bit to generate hype. Please be patient as they build the brand.

    • Stevedo

      That's what I'm hoping after the UK nexus 4's went so quickly.

    • FrillArtist

      You're the definition of a blindsided fanboy to the max.

  • Omar

    nexus 4 8gb back in stock, still nothing on the 16gb :/

    • GreatNews

      refresh the page and it will be gone again!

  • Ralph Castro

    JUST GOT THE 16GB, Dont give up hope guys. I just purchased it in a span of about 10 seconds.

  • http://www.facebook.com/Crims0nAngel Michael Villanueva

    After about an hour I finally got an order through it seemed instead of refreshing the page if I just took a direct link to the model I wanted it showed up as available.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

    everytime I added to my cart is comes back as empty

  • Christopher Iverson

    Such a tease

  • ZZ

    It keeps going in and out of stock. I sat on my Nexus 7 pushing refresh non-stop and when I finally gave up, my friend said it was back in stock again. I went to my computer and was able to order it after about 5 minutes of refreshing.

    Couldn't be happier!!! Nexus 4, 16GB, I will see you in two days!

  • rohana

    What a huge letdown. Trust in Google destroyed in minutes.

    • GreatNews

      same here

  • Miguel

    I got mine coming someone that can't wait can give me 500 and I will ship it, text:331sixeight47817 :) :)

  • karthi

    Keep Refreshing the page, the notify me changes to add to cart. I just submitted my request for N 4 16 GB. Also order a bumper too the same way. All the best guys. Looks like the server load was the problem.

    • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

      Where are you located - USA or Canada? Just curious if we'll see the same behavior here in Canada.

      • karthi

        In Phoenix

    • Calcium2

  • http://www.facebook.com/ROKeefe87 Ryan O’Keefe

    Managed to grab one. Fought through the errors, but got my confirmation email.

  • suzu

      • FrillArtist

        It's JUST a phone.

        • Omar

          I've been phone-less for over 2 weeks, I kinda need it

    • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

      Fingers crossed you're right!

    • Dominik

      I've been doing exactly that for almost 45 minutes with no luck. Getting carpal tunnel here lol.

      • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

        keep trying I got through

    • Slacker

      Every five refreshes or so, I get the add to cart button, but every time I do that, I get an "oops" error. I think they are just toying with us.

  • http://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=665510878 Jose Salas

    well I just got mine finally, did it let u select overnight shipping or just regular 2 day shipping? I was going too fast didn't stop for that lol

  • shinwater

      • shinwater

        Even though it says in stock, it got removed from the cart many times, but i kept trying.

        Got lucky after clicking (and not working like i am supposed to) for 15+ minutes.

        • http://about.me/jason.johnson JJ

          Awesome, thanks for the info, and congrats! :D

    • Slacker

      Maybe it doesn't like me because i am not using Chrome. :P

      • Robert Johnson

  • dvdsxn

    • calcium2

      • Robert Johnson

        Thanks for your reports--

      • dvdsxn
