Australian Nexus 5 orders now shipping from Google Play

Nexus 5 Header
Good news campers, it appears that Google are now shipping out orders for the Nexus 5 that came through early this morning. Instead of waiting till Tuesday the 5th of November as indicated for early customers, regular Ausdroid reader and tipster Chris advised that he has received his shipping confirmation for his Black 32GB Nexus 5 from Google Play :
Shipping Confirmation

As you can see Chris was awake at 2am AWST (5am AEDT) and placed what must be one of the first orders for the Nexus 5 in Australia getting in at just 1 minute past the time when the phone went live on Google Play.

Previous hardware has shipped from Expansys in Hong Kong via Fed Ex and it appears that this trend is set to continue. With this sort of turnaround we could start seeing happy Nexus 5 owners in Australia this time tomorrow – for our Sydney based readers – Edit: Thought it was Thursday, looks like it will be early next week.

Have you received your shipping confirmation for your Nexus 5?

 
Thanks: Chris.

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Hi, May I know how much was the shipping cost to Australia and was there additional tax charged on top of it?

Ordered the black 32gb late – around 11.30 or so AEDST on Friday. Was meant to be in the 2-3 weeks delivery group. Got an email on Sunday that it was shipped but the FedEx page hasn’t updated since then, it’s just sitting at initiated.

Still Initiated for me too for 32GB black. Called Fedex and they said they haven’t even picked up the parcel yet.

Word of warning. Don’t set your delivery address as a parcel locker. I made my order at about 7am this morning and was looking all set to receive my shiny new Nexus 5 next week. However, by the afternoon I still hadn’t received my confirmation email so I checked the my orders section on Google Play and discovered my order has been cancelled without me knowing… I called Google and was informed they don’t deliver to parcel lockers, resulting in my automated order cancellation. And of course with my order cancelled I had to place a new order… and t… Read more »

I must be really unlucky.

I ordered mine at 5am Brisbane time, got the confirmation email saying it will be shipped by 5 Nov and still haven’t received my shipping confirmation yet (right now it’s 4:12 pm).

I’m reading that people who placed their order AFTER me have already gotten their shipping details……

Its delivery BY 6pm (I too have a estimated delivery of Monday) – so it could be delivered before you go. As Daniel says, probably worth contacting Fedex.

I ordered it at 5:10am, still shows pending. I’m assuming black n5’s are shipping before white ones.

I regret calling it a night at 1:30, should’ve stayed up 30 more minutes!!

Ordered mine at 9am instead now. Still sitting there saying “Leaves warehouse by November 5, 2013”

I’m in the same boat… I went to bed at 1:35…
woke up randomly at 5:30 and ordered then.. wish i’d stayed up that extra 25 minutes! Should still get it by next friday though.

My order went through at 5.13am after it initally didn’t accept my credit card. Hoping I get a confirmation email soon! Would love it if FedEx delivered on a Saturday but I don’t think it’ll be that quick.
