If you’re like us you might have been in front of the computer hitting F5 furiously as the clock strikes 12, only to be left a little frustrated as Google’s playground is yet to be opened despite it officially being 13 November in Australia.
According to Googler Stefan Keuchel in Germany, the device will only start selling at some point in the afternoon/evening in the region, which could be true for all of Europe. Here’s what the Google employee said (Google translation):
As I learned today, the ordering is, however, open only on Tuesday afternoon / early evening. So it makes no sense today to persevere at midnight in front of computer to buy a Nexus device. I like to keep you informed as soon as I get new information.
Update: Keuchel later on posted an update on the matter, letting buyers know that shopping can start tomorrow morning instead of afternoon/evening as previously indicated. Here’s his Google-translated message:
Update: Your will for me crazy explain (and rightly so), but I have just received the news that the Nexus devices (N4, N7 and N10) now but tomorrow morning (for breakfast) will be available through Google Play!
Now, assuming that breakfast means 9am in the morning the device should go on sale in Australian Play Store later in the evening.
UPDATE - Nexus 4 (8GB) and Nexus 10 are now available on the Australian Play Store. No news on the 16GB Nexus 4 yet.
