Australian Google Play Nexus 4 orders now shipping

lg-sections-nexus4
If you managed to snag a 16GB(edit: Or 8GB as well it seems) Nexus 4 on Thursday it’s probably a good idea to check your email. Judging from the influx of tips and comments we’ve received, a large majority of people who managed to procure a device are receiving shipping notifications for their Nexus 4s.

Devices appear to be shipping out of Hong Kong via FedEx as per the previous batch and shipping is certainly a lot faster than the 2-3 Weeks estimated when they resumed sales at 9am on Thursday morning but I don’t think you’ll catch anyone complaining about the swiftness in which Google has managed to get these devices out the door.

If you haven’t received your notification as yet I don’t think it’s time to panic as yet, I’d give it till the beginning of next week before starting to chase up your order with Google.

Update : Thanks to _aero_ we have a notification :
Shipping

Have you received your shipping notification from Google? Which model did you get 8GB or 16GB?

 
Thanks: Everyone who commented.

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.

while my N4 has been smooth as silk since i got it I’m still pretty dissapionted with a few things… the battery life is very average(I should not have to charge my phone while Im at work if all i use it for is music, playing sudoku and browsing the net on my way to and from work), the lack of USB OTG is complete BS, the app drawer does not autorotate into landscape mode and having to install apps to get custom ringtones…. I knew about not having an SD before buying the phone so I can”t complain to… Read more »

Battery life is good for me, I don’t need to charge at night. Change your launcher and guess what you can autorotate the app drawer.
you know what your issues seem to be lack of understanding and just a need to bitch and moan.

Get F§$ked; your saying because I don’t think I should have to install apps and a new launcher because I think they should be include as stock that makes me a bitch??? Ringtone editor was a stock feature as was USB OTG (by the way how am I supposed to add that?) . seriously some of you guys are sounding more like Apple iSheep everyday.

I bought mine from Kogan the other day, I don’t know about anyone else but I still haven’t got my email notification from Google that they are back in the store (available). Pretty poor effort.
