As you'll know if you tried to pick up a new Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 today, the first round of stock didn't last long, and server load issues made it particularly tricky to get through the ordering process.
In its first statement on the Nexus launch, Google acknowledged that high demand for the new phone and tablet has led to the devices becoming sold out in some territories. At the time of writing, the Nexus 4 is unavailable in the UK, European, Australian, U.S. and Canadian Google Play devices stores. Nexus 10 availability is limited to the 16GB model in many countries.
On its posting on the official 'Nexus' Google+ account, the company says it's working to bring more stock to the Play Store, but offers little in the way of specific dates or quantities, simply stating that more stock would be due "in the weeks ahead."
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. You can learn more about Nexus devices and stay updated at play.google.com/nexus
That'll come as little comfort to those who were prevented from placing orders today due to technical issues, but at least more stock will eventually be headed to Google Play.
