Nexus 4, 10 and phone bumpers now available in Australian Google Play Store (update)

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.

  • Oh shit, oh shit, oh shit.
  • Not only I got bent over by the physics exam, i just got bent over finding out it got released during physics!
  • SO JEALOUS!!!! I can't wait any longer.
  • 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.
  • what time is it in australia? maybe we can expect it at that time in the states
  • At the earliest, it's about to be 9AM.
  • Dang! I read on Ausdroid that the 16GB phone sold out in 20 minutes.
  • Yeah, I make it a touch under 20 mins.
    And the carriers rejected this phone in Australia, hahahaha FOOOLS!
  • Yeap 16gb all gone. 8gb still available.
  • 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.
  • Its 1PM here in Aussie
  • The time zones in Australia are so strange.
  • same as the states East coast is 3hrs ahead of west coast
  • 16GB already sold out!
    Us greedy Aussies took them all.
  • yep 16gb is gone glad i got in early!
  • Good job! BTW, this commenting system is so terrible!
  • lol
  • $20 for bumpers is rather expensive, for about the same price I can get a solid case lol.
  • 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.
  • A solid case may not be compatible with the wireless charger. $20 for a nice case is not a bad deal.
  • 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.
  • I sure as hell hope so!
  • Me too! I know it sounds crazy, but I'll be so mad (and jealous) if I have to wait another 3 weeks! Lol
  • ___
  • 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.
  • Thx. I just installed an auto refresh for chrome so I dont wear out my f5!
  • I hope allotment doesn't go by the size of the country as I'm in the UK :( Looking to grab a Nexus 10.
  • I just want to kno at what time itll go on sale in the US!! i live in NY :(
  • 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
  • yes, I want to know this as well, but I am gonna put the alarm at 3am :p
  • Why did i have to schedule my classes for Tuesday and Thursday ??? :(
  • Im here in Canada and will be buying in the morning at 7. Hopefully it is not sold out! Crossing my fingerS !!!
  • How much did the 16GB cost including tax and shipping?
  • I'm really not optimistic at all about being able to get one now. And this is my last chance to ever buy one.
  • Why is it your last chance? Is your time here in the Milky Way coming to an end? No but seriously
  • It isn't like they aren't gonna make more
  • hopefully they make them fast
  • uhhhhh, bumper weights fkn 20 grams? are they insane. wtf.
  • 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
