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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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.

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

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.

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.

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

waiting for my pre-order from handtec
i ordered nexus 10 32 gb and nexus 4 16 gb
anyone knows if handtec is good in selling devices as soon as they are released or will they keep me waiting for a week before they ship it
