Did you, like me, sit at a computer for much of the late night and morning, refreshing the Google Play store screen, waiting and hoping to be the proud owner of a brand spanking, shiny new Nexus device?
Did you, like me, end up without one because they sold out in a matter of minutes?
Do you, like me, want to know when they’ll be back in stock?
Well, according to the official Google+ page, that will be in the “coming weeks”. See their statement below:
Nexus 19:03 – Public
Earlier today, we began selling three new Nexus devices around the world:
Nexus 4 — the new smartphone with Google Now and Photo Sphere camera: http://goo.gl/ZKVc5
Nexus 7 — 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
Nexus 10– 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.
“Coming weeks” you say? There are fifty-two of them until I expect another Nexus phone, will it be before then?
Such a woolly statement from Google is just as bad as the seemingly disorganised launch of these much anticipated devices; it will do very little to appease the masses of customers thrusting wads of cash at the Play store and getting nothing in return.
So the playground is most certainly not open at the moment and all we can do is wait (or pay massively over the odds for one on ebay), but rest assured, we’ll be here to keep you updated when a more concrete date is set.
