If there's one thing we all know about the latest entries in the Nexus line, it's that they're hard to get a hold of. No one is quite sure why the launch turned out to be a total mess, but all eyes have been on the Play Store since October, waiting to catch the devices in an ephemeral moment of availability.

Following the renewed availability of the Nexus 4 (it's still there, by the way), the Nexus 10 – Samsung's ten-inch contribution to the line – is once again ready for purchase in the US. Both the 16 and 32GB versions are up for grabs.

Like the Nexus 4, the Nexus 10 "ships in 1-2 weeks," but - while you can't get the slate immediately - the fact that it's up for purchase still great news.

As for the Play Store's other international outposts? Australia and Germany are both sold out, while the United Kingdom and Canada both have the 16GB model (but not the 32GB version) in stock.

If you're in the U.S. and you've been waiting for your chance to get a hold of the Nexus 10, hit the link below and claim yours.

    I'm interested to know how many Nexus 4's have been sold since it became available again.

      Seriously. They're still in stock which means Google has been pounded with purchases for a few days now. The stock they got must be pretty huge.

      • infogulch

        Maybe. But maybe demand has decreased since it's been unavailable for so long. There have been several new announcements and leaks of new phones that might draw away some buyers.

        Hopefully the opposite is true, Google is selling the shit out of all of it, they have plenty of stock, and they got their shit together on that laggy/buggy shopping cart when it's under load.

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

          That's probably true as well, especially since we're now past the holidays. But at the same time, LG did say they'll resolve the stock issues by February, and here we are. I think there's a lot more stock and also less demand, as you said.

            I'm stuck with VZW until December. I think by then, I'm jumping to TMo. (Unless VZW kills my unlimited plan before then...)

            Think hard about that. T-Mobiles coverage sucks.

        • Tíghearnán Carroll

          There will always be massive demand for a high end smart phone price at $289.

          I can confirm the "demand has dropped theory" in relation to my family. My brother and sister and my cousin and I wanted to get the Nexus 4 so badly when it came out. However, I'm the only one currently with a Nexus 4 right now. My brother got an S3, sister got a One X and cousin got a GNex. They said they got tired of waiting.

      I don't have a source link fit it, but some one decoded the serial numbers and said the total number of nexus 4's sold was around 370000 to 500000, and that was a month or so ago.

      • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

        According to LG's director of mobile communication, the 370k figure was inaccurate, though what that means isn't clear. (http://www.challenges.fr/high-tech/20130116.CHA5141/deboires-du-smartphone-de-google-nexus-4-lg-explique-pourquoi-il-semble-introuvable.html)

          There's nothing at that link, but I didn't hear about that. I'd almost be willing to bet it was more than that, but there's not really any way to find out without someone spilling the beans.

          • http://AndroidPolice.com/ Liam Spradlin

            If you're still interested, try the link again. Disqus, for some reason, didn't exclude the closing parenthesis from the link I'd posted.

          • Justin Winker

            Awesome, thanks!

    Come on, tax refund!!!!

  • Ali Gunduz

    I ordered nexus 10 32gb. It was exactly 2 weeks ago. And I had it in my hands in 5 business days. Yes, including the shipment. Are we talking about the same Google here?

    Found that I could order this online only via Google Play or Staples or order via Walmart.com, or pick up one of three available at my local Walmart store. Hate to admit it, as I do not like to shop there, but I chose the latter to get the product ASAP. Also, Wlamert has a good deal on drop/spill protection for $44 for the 32GB version. Staples charges $150 for similar coverage. Everywhere I turned, each charged the same for the 32GB Nexus 10 ($499.00). So, I saved on the piece of mind coverage :) For $150 coverage at Staples, I probably would have taken my chances.
