Grab your credit cards, folks; Google’s latest Nexus devices — the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 — are now available to order through the Google Play Store — at least for those in Australia and the United Kingdom (they haven’t hit the U.S. store yet). But if you haven’t got your order in already, you’re out of luck.
The Nexus 4, Google’s latest smartphone, sold out within 30 minutes in the U.K., with prices starting at a low £239 (approx. $380). Both the 8GB and 16GB devices are no longer on sale, and Google Play now states that they will be “coming soon.” Customers can leave their email address if they’d like to be notified when the device will be available again.
SlashGear reports that customers attempting to order the Nexus 4 this morning have complained that the Google Play Store has been “sluggish or unresponsive,” supposedly due to the high demand of the device. The site reportedly suffered frequent errors, meaning that by the time some shoppers got to the checkout with a device in their basket, it was no longer available.
The Nexus 10, which starts at £319 (approx. $507) in the U.K., is also unavailable in both capacities now. The Nexus 7, which has been on sale for several months now, can still be obtained with 3-5 day shipping estimates.
It’s unclear when the new Nexus devices will hit the U.S. Google Play Store, but we’re expecting that to happen imminently. When it does, you’ll probably want to get your order in as quickly as possible, because these things aren’t sticking around too long.
Are you hoping to get a Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 from Google Play today?
