Update, 5.10pm AEST It appears the 32 GB Nexus 10 is also sold out! [Jason]
Update, 5.00pm AEST At some point during the afternoon it looks like the bumpers for the Nexus 4 went on sale, and have also sold out. It’s a bit disappointing that they weren’t available when the device was in stock earlier. Did you get a bumper AND a Nexus 4? [Jason]
Update, 2.19pm AEST Looks like the 8 GB Nexus 4 is also sold out (thanks, mohammad_danish). We’re also seeing reports from some users that the Nexus 10 is showing as Coming Soon, although I’ve not been able to verify this personally. [Jason]
Update, 12.46pm AEST It looks like 16 GB Nexus 4’s are sold out, taking just 22 mins to do so. Ausdroid reader mi7k alerted us to the page’s return to ‘Coming Soon’. Hope you got your order in, everyone!
After the Google ‘Playground is Open’ event was cancelled last month due to Hurricane Sandy hitting the east coast of the US, the Nexus 4 and 10 were added to the Google Play Store with a promise to start accepting orders on the 13th of November, whilst it got off to a late start, they are now available to order to Australians in the Devices section of the Google Play Store.
Still waiting on the 32GB 3G enabled Nexus 7to be available to order the page still currently advises that it ‘is not available in your country’ but we’ve heard it’s due to start arriving at bricks and mortar retailers around the end of this month, so its arrival in the Play Store can’t be too far away.
No sign of the Nexus 4 wireless charging orb that was shown off on the introductory video hosted on TheVerge at the launch of the new Nexus devices, however there is now a bumper accessory for the Nexus 4 showing as coming soon for $19.99. So, inductive charging will have to wait until Google announces price and availability for the orb, in the meantiome the QI enabled Nokia Charging matt which arrives in Australia with the launch of the Lumia 920 later this month will work I’m told by reliable sources(LG).
No information is known about the supply chain of the Nexus 4 or Nexus 10, however the Nexus 7 has so far shipped out of Expansys in Hong Kong via FedEx so something similar is expected for the newest phone and tablet in the Nexus line.
So there they are, go get them. Remember to let us know in the comments which model/s you’ve ordered and of course when you’ve got a shipping notification.
