Sold out! This is what customers see when they try to purchase the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 from the Play Store. In fact, the two devices have been out of stock pretty much…
Though it hasn’t been quite as slippery as its little brother, the Nexus 10 has also been pretty difficult to track and score ever since its “launch”. But if LG can get on top of demand and handle N4 shipments decently for a change, why couldn’t Samsung do the same?
Well, it can and it does starting today, when Nexus 10 stocks have been replenished in Google’s US Play Store. Both the 16 and 32 GB versions of the tab are up for grabs for Americans, with pricing looking just as fine as it did back in November 2012 – $399 and $499 respectively.
The bad news might be the waiting period between Google Play orders and actual shipments (1-2 weeks, supposedly), but hey, if you’ve been patient all this time you can give it seven or ten more days, right? Also, based on how things are moving with the N4, you might be in for another pleasant surprise and see your N10 orders fulfilled much more promptly.
Outside the States, things are looking even better in countries like Germany and UK. The two Play Stores have both the 16 and 32 GB versions of the Nexus 10 in stock, with delivery taking between 3 and 5 days.
Meanwhile, Canadians can only get their hands on the 16 GB Nexus 10, whereas the French have the 32 GB version up for grabs, but not the 16. Finally, Spaniards and Australians seem to be the only ones completely out of luck, as Nexus 10 stocks in their countries are still exhausted.
Could this be the end of the Nexus 4/10 limited supply saga? Will Google's Play Stores handle demand in the long run or are we again going to see those dread “out of stock” messages soon?
