Google Play Store

Update: Well, that was quick. Looks like both the 8 and 16GB Nexus 4's are sold out in the Australian Play Store.

And so it begins. Aussies, get out your credit cards and head to the Play Store to pick up your Nexus 4 and Nexus 10. The folks over at AusDroid have just clued in to the Play Store going live for purchase, and everyone else in the world is envious for just a few hours while you guys get the head start.

Also in this refresh of the store we see that Google will be selling official bumpers for the Nexus 4. They come in any color as long as it's black and are $19.99 here in the states.

Not only I got bent over by the physics exam, i just got bent over finding out it got released during physics!

S_C_B says:

SO JEALOUS!!!! I can't wait any longer.

Small_law says:

The bumpers are showing up in the U.S. store as "coming soon" as well.
As long as the caffeine and Halo holds out, I'm up all night.

skitchbeatz says:

what time is it in australia? maybe we can expect it at that time in the states

S_C_B says:

At the earliest, it's about to be 9AM.

S_C_B says:

Dang! I read on Ausdroid that the 16GB phone sold out in 20 minutes.

philtann says:

Yeah, I make it a touch under 20 mins.
And the carriers rejected this phone in Australia, hahahaha FOOOLS!

Hansana says:

Yeap 16gb all gone. 8gb still available.

S_C_B says:

This is gonna be a LONG night for us techies! I may not make it to sleep. I'm so going for the 16 GB model. I wish the bumpers came in other colors.

Hansana says:

Its 1PM here in Aussie

S_C_B says:

The time zones in Australia are so strange.

Matt Biddle says:

same as the states East coast is 3hrs ahead of west coast

philtann says:

16GB already sold out!
Us greedy Aussies took them all.

Matt Biddle says:

yep 16gb is gone glad i got in early!

S_C_B says:

Good job!

BTW, this commenting system is so terrible!

deltatux says:

$20 for bumpers is rather expensive, for about the same price I can get a solid case lol.

randombob says:

considering iphone bumpers go for 30 bux, i think 20 is more acceptable. that said, i wish they released the bumpers at the same time as the phones so i could have ordered at the same time.

ilongbored says:

A solid case may not be compatible with the wireless charger. $20 for a nice case is not a bad deal.

I Monarch says:

I can't imagine them selling out as quickly in the US as they did in Australia. With the US being such a bigger smartphone market, there must be a larger allotment.

S_C_B says:

I sure as hell hope so!

bwood2016 says:

Me too! I know it sounds crazy, but I'll be so mad (and jealous) if I have to wait another 3 weeks! Lol

Sophos says:

What, if anything, do you think we can infer about the US release time from the Australian release time?

the_mongrel says:

I don't know if you can infer anything, they went on sale here at around 11:20am (give or take a few minutes) Brisbane time - AEST. Seemed kinda random to me, I just happened to hit refresh at the right time.

Sophos says:

Thx. I just installed an auto refresh for chrome so I dont wear out my f5!

Zero1#AC says:

I hope allotment doesn't go by the size of the country as I'm in the UK :(

Looking to grab a Nexus 10.

oxidax says:

I just want to kno at what time itll go on sale in the US!! i live in NY :(

Zero1#AC says:

Well it's 2:40 am in the UK and still no go, Australia started at about 1 pm.

I hope it starts soon as I will have to go to bed soon.

oxidax says:

im gonna keep refreshing until 2 am. If i wake up and its sold out thats gonna ruin my whole day

Red_Wolf says:

yes, I want to know this as well, but I am gonna put the alarm at 3am :p

weiny says:

Why did i have to schedule my classes for Tuesday and Thursday ??? :(

sukhvirlam says:

Im here in Canada and will be buying in the morning at 7. Hopefully it is not sold out! Crossing my fingerS !!!

Shivammcool says:

How much did the 16GB cost including tax and shipping?

chronophilos says:

I'm really not optimistic at all about being able to get one now. And this is my last chance to ever buy one.

KwietStorm says:

Why is it your last chance? Is your time here in the Milky Way coming to an end? No but seriously

piizzadude says:

It isn't like they aren't gonna make more

chronophilos says:

hopefully they make them fast
