HTC Pushes US One A9 Pre-Order Shipments Back By Up To Several Weeks, Delays Verizon Compatibility Indefinitely

While the A9 is indeed a pretty good phone, there's no doubt HTC's bungled the launch of the device a bit. First, the whole promotional pricing thing (and the 2GB/16GB variant abroad being so damn expensive), and now? A pre-order shipment delay for those who did choose to buy one. We're hearing from US readers that HTC has sent out the following email, pushing back shipment of the initially available colors until next Tuesday, November 10th, at the earliest. Some customers, though, will be waiting much longer than that - especially if you ordered a Sprint variant.

In addition, HTC has now delayed Verizon network compatibility for the One A9 indefinitely.

After A False Start, Blackberry Is Now Taking Pre-Orders For The Android-Powered Priv For $699

Earlier this week Blackberry's official online store posted a pre-order page for the Priv, a high-end QWERTY slider phone that also happens to be the company's first full Android device. Apparently that was a bit premature - it disappeared after a short time, but not so short that prospective customers didn't balk at the $749 USD starting price. Today the pre-order page is back with a slightly cheaper price: $699. Was the original page an error or did Blackberry see the quick reaction and adjust it down? We couldn't say. The page says the phone will start shipping on November 6th.

Google Is Starting To Charge Credit Cards For Nexus 6P Orders - Shipping Can't Be Too Far Away

If you've been waiting patiently for your top-of-the-line Google flagship phone to arrive, you won't have to wait too much longer. If you haven't been waiting patiently, you probably don't have long to wait either, but you should really be more gracious about it. We've been sent reports from multiple Android Police readers saying that their credit cards have been charged after ordering the Nexus 6P on the Play Store, which typically means that they'll be shipped very soon. At this point, all of them are in the United States.

These customers were presumably among the first to order the Nexus 6P from the Google Store, so those who got their orders in later will probably be looking at a week or more of delays.

Shyp Android App Gets Delivered To The Play Store, Lets You Ship Packages Without Leaving The House

The Internet has made buying things as effortless as possible. You don't need to go to the store or even roll out of bed. You don't have to bother with cash, and in places where you frequently shop, you can do without pulling out a card either. A series of mouse clicks or finger taps is all it takes.

The inverse isn't so simple. Mailing packages typically requires making a trip to the nearest postal service and wrestling with packaging. Shyp wants to do away with this hassle, and it has just brought its app over to Android.

To mail an item with Shyp, simply snap a photo, tell the service where you are, where you want your item to go, and schedule a pickup.

Roadie Is Ride-Sharing For Packages, Turns Weekend Trips Into A Chance To Make A Buck

You're a busy person. You've got work all day, groceries to buy during lunch, and kids to pick up after piano practice. (Football? Yeah, let's make it football practice.) The last thing you want to do is schlep across town to drop off that blender for your sister's party next week. Wouldn't it be better if you could just send somebody else to do it? A new service called Roadie is looking to turn everyday commuters and travelers into a network of couriers ready to take just about anything across town, or across the state.

The idea is very similar to ride-share services like Lyft and Uber, but oriented towards moving inanimate objects from point A to point B, rather than humans.

Some HTC Nexus 9 Magic Covers Now Shipping For Amazon Pre-Orders, Coral Amethyst Color Still Available

If you snatched up one of the hard-to-find Nexus 9 Magic Covers by getting in a pre-order at Amazon way back in October, check your inbox. At least one Android Police reader reports that his cover has shipped. Given Amazon's extensive and speedy distribution network, it's likely that most of the other pre-orders are shipping as well, though that might depend on which color you chose. And speaking of colors...

Amazon still has at least some of the first-party Nexus 9 covers in stock. That's the good news. The bad news is that you can have any color you want...

The Nexus 6 Is Now Available From The Play Store In Australia, Ships In 3-4 Weeks

Update: Aaaaaand it's gone, according to Australian site Ausdroid. It looks like Google isn't having it any easier keeping the Nexus 6 in stock in the southern hemisphere.

Psst. Hey, Aussies. Head over to your local Google Play Store's Devices section. You might see something you've been waiting on for a while.

2014 - 1

That's right, the Nexus 6 is now being sold in the Play Store in Australia. And by "being sold," I mean that it's still several weeks away from shipping, but Google will be more than happy to take your money now. At least until the inventory runs out.

[Update: Backordered Already] Nexus 6 Pre-Orders Are Now Available From Motorola.com, No Shipping Date Shown

If you're as fed up with the Google Play Store's fumbling of the Nexus 6 launch as everyone else, you now have at least one alternative. Motorola has begun selling pre-orders on its website, at least to the United States. You can order the 32GB model and 64GB model at $649.99 and $699.99, respectively, in both white and blue. According to the site, "availability" of the pre-order is determined when you check out, so just seeing it on the site doesn't mean you'll be able to secure a pre-order.

Unfortunately, there's no mention anywhere of an approximate ship date. It could be next week, when the first retailers are expected to get units, or it could be weeks after the Play Store orders go through.
