Nexus 4 Shipping

Many of our hearts sank when the e-mails started rolling out indicating that there would be a three-week delay in shipments of some "backordered" Nexus 4 handsets. Now many users are seeing a more encouraging e-mail landing in their inbox, informing them that their devices are expected to ship this week. Credit cards will be charged and tracking numbers sent once the devices finally get out the door. That said, we're still lacking actual dates. But we're not going to look this gift horse in the mouth.

This falls right into line with the three-week timeframe we heard before, so let's hope that this batch triggers availability in the Play Store again. Maybe this round we'll see orders stay up for more than 15 minutes. There are lots of eager potential buyers that want to get their hands on a Nexus 4.

Just received e-mail update.

Your Nexus 4 order is scheduled to ship this week. We’ll send you a notification, including tracking information, when it’s on the way.

Please note that your order will be charged in full when it ships. As a courtesy and to thank you for your patience, you’ll then receive a credit for the shipping charge within 7 business days.

Thanks again,

The Google Play Team

You rock Ziptied! I'm betting all the people that cancelled their orders are kicking themselves now.

Tips on becoming a Googler? I'm all ears...

Ziptied says:

Work hard, study hard, have a resume that stands out, uh.... yeah that's all I got, everything else is so specific based on job title.

Congratulations guys, I really love mine and can't wait until its in more people's hands. - D

Good, I'll be waiting on the restock! I'm sure it's about to happen.

Ironzey says:

Congratulations to those folks that will be getting theirs. I'm not one of you, I'll be using Nexus money to buy a Galaxy Note 2. Sorry Google I don't want to play the refresh game anymore.

So instead of buying a Nexus 4 you'll buy 50% of a Note 2?

toonhead85 says:

haha, only if they buy outright without a contract.

A t-mo rep told me they were getting new stock next week for Nexus 4s. I don't know how true he was or not, but it seems like there's a nice stockpile coming in from Korea. Happy Days.

Small_law says:

Got my email! Very exciting!

Amir47 says:

meh my heart is hardly into it anymore after this wait

deltatux says:

So this means I'll be able to order the phone soon and not have my browser check the Google Play store every minute now? Please let this be true, I really hope to get one for the Holiday Season. I was really hoping to get it for my birthday next week but that's obviously not going to happen as I couldn't order it on Nov. 13th anyways...

Me too...

jmoney13 says:

I got it too, I cant wait to actually receive the phone, so excited!

anyone actually know when exactly will there be another opportunity to order?

eli_ao5 says:

I got an email last week saying mine was to be shipped then ....nothing...then this email stating that this week I would get my tracking info....Google is really pushing me to insanity...
