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?

Looks like the 32GB model is out of stock again in the UK. :(
what the hell wrong with this company? I want to get 32GB but it seems they can’t cope with consumer’s demand.
I will tell you what’s wrong with google: all they want are lab rats to test the shit they produce for Apple or Microsoft. Want a proof? Look at how the Google map app is much better on iPhone than on Android.
And google are just pathetic “attention whores”. They underproduce just to create the habitual “look at us, we sold out!” press buzz.
Google can go fuck themselves in all the possible ways. All they do is pathetic; playing the ”attention whores” each time they launch a new device.
Nexus 7, Chromebook, , Nexus 10, Nexus 4, and now we hear about the future new Nexus 7. They just want the “Look at us, look at us! We sold out (the 5,000 units we produced)!” press buzz.
All their products are just average at the moment the official presentation, and the time they come available on stores (half a year after the launch), they are outdated and outperformed by anything competitors made.
Not to mention: if you are ”lucky” enough to live in one of the only eight countries where you can use the google online store, to buy online is more related to torture like nails on a chalkboard than of an enjoyable experience.
I was sincerely interested for Nexsucks devices I ordered and paid in advance last year. Now I canceled my orders and keep my money for Samsung S4 and the Note 3.
Fuck you google. Fuck you.
