November 13, 2012 - Written By Tom Dawson

We all know that today can be a trying time for all those die-hard Nexus fans out there, waiting for the Play Store page to go live so that you can go ahead and get your new phone or tablet ordered up. Well, if you’re in the UK then that time has now come for the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10, they’re both now available from the UK Play Store. If it’s anything to go by it looks like Google is launching the orders for every territory at morning time as it’s around 08:00 AM for me in the UK.

It’s not just the UK though as Spain, Germany and France are reported to have their pages go live with new Nexus goodness!

UPDATE: It looks like the 16GB version of the Nexus 4 has already sold out in the UK and it hasn’t even been on sale for an hour yet! Folks in the US be ready and be quick!

The Nexus 4 is available in 8GB and 16GB models for £239 and £279 respectively and if you’ve been living under a rock for a while then you won’t know that this is the first Nexus device from LG and the first Nexus to pack a quad-core processor in it, making for the most unique Nexus since the Nexus One. If you’re in the UK and still unsure if you’re going to take the plunge then take a look at the specs below to see if we can’t change your mind:

  • 1.5GHZ Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro APQ8064 quad-core processor
  • 4.7 inch IPS display at 1280 x 768
  • 2GB RAM
  • 8 or 16GB storage options with no room for a microSD card

When it comes to the Nexus 10, the 16GB and 32GB models can be yours for £319 and £389, respectively. With it’s stunning 2560 x 1600 display and a dual-core Exynos 5250 there’s a whole lot to love and if you’ve been waiting to upgrade from that Motorola XOOM then now is the perfect chance and will make a great Christmas present, perhaps from yourself to…you?
