Supposedly launches at 9 AM Pacific, so noon Eastern time (unconfirmed, just some guy posting on another forum lol).

Many regions reported errors. For those of you signed up for the email alerts, there have been complaints that those came too late (i.e. after they sold out in AUS).

If you're on a great monthly plan price, the subsidization is a huge benefit. I pay $60/month all in. I get $550 off the Note 2, on a two year cycle. $550/24 months = A savings of $22.92/month. $60-$22.92 = $37.08/month real cost after subsidization.

I think the Nexus 4 is a nice phone at a budget price, but I wouldn't want a phone that's missing LTE, removable battery or microSD card slot. That's just too much to give up. Happy that it works for other people, though.

I'm not overly worried about errors or not getting one. We all know NA is the biggest consumer electronic market and Google knows this too. Right now all i have to do is wait. I hate waiting.

All I know is, with my new job, I'm definitely looking at the possibility of going up to the Nexus 10 instead of the Nexus 7 and then throwing a SquareTrade warranty on it. Hmmm... which one should I go with...

I'd say Nexus 10. But in reality either is fine.

Maybe I'll buy both . I just hope with the Nexus 10 being brought out that it will get a LOT more devs to make apps/games for that size/resolution.

Arrrgg, I was almost there, the choose shipping and payment page wouldn't load completely. Next thing you know, the thing is sold out. Frustrating as heck.

It took like 10-15 min for the 16GB to sell out as far as I know. Looks like 8GB's gone now too.

I had Google refreshing every 60 seconds on my laptop while I play CoD.
Took me 3 tries but it finally worked.

I can't believe it sold out already.
Unreal.

Can't get a better price plan than mine... (literally not possible unless your corporate heads for the Cell company) ... but I can't get subsidies.

Supposedly they're speratically being sold.
Retards slamming the F5 key during the purchase window ended up buying 8 at a time and cancelling 7. You might still have a little hope.

Well... so much for that idea of buying a 16GB N4 today. No luck.

Was able to purchase the GN4 at around noon EST today. Had to press f5 so much though, and I had to bring my laptop to class
