Seems like Android manufacturers favorite phrase is “in the coming weeks”. We see it all the time especially with software updates. As you probably know already, the Nexus 4, 10, and Nexus 7 HSPA+ went on sale today in a few countries. Including Australia (last night if you’re in the US), parts of Europe and North America. In each region the devices sold out in about 30 minutes to an hour. Some places were even quicker. So when will Google get more stock in? Doesn’t look like it’ll be sometime this week. Here’s the word from the official Nexus Google+ page:
Earlier today, we began selling three new Nexus devices around the world:
Nexus4 — the new smartphone with Google Now and Photo Sphere camera:http://goo.gl/ZKVc5
Nexus7 — a thin, light and portable 7″ tablet, now with up to 32GB of storage and the option to add mobile data: http://goo.gl/xuiRc
Nexus10— a powerful 10″ tablet, with the world’s highest resolution display (300ppi): http://goo.gl/2nZ7Q
There’s been so much interest for the Nexus lineup that we’ve sold out of some of our initial stock in a few countries! We are working hard to add more Nexus devices to Google Play in the coming weeks to keep up with the high demand. You can learn more about Nexus devices and stay updated atplay.google.com/nexus.
We’ve also begun rolling out Android4.2, JellyBean, to Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 devices, via an over-the-air update. Check out what’s new here:android.com/whatsnew
So “in the coming weeks” you can buy a shiny new Nexus 4. Who know’s how long that actually is. Hopefully Google will shock us and have more available later this week or next week. I know there are many of you out there that did not get to order a Nexus 4 and Nexus 10.
Who didn’t have a chance to order their new Nexus device, and join the Playground?
