Earlier today, we began selling three new Nexus devices around the world:

Nexus 4 -- the new smartphone with Google Now and Photo Sphere camera:
Nexus 7 -- a thin, light and portable 7” tablet, now with up to 32GB of storage and the option to add mobile data:
Nexus 10-- a powerful 10” tablet, with the world’s highest resolution display (300ppi): 

There’s been so much interest for the Nexus lineup that we’ve sold out of some of our initial stock in a few countries! We are working hard to add more Nexus devices to Google Play in the coming weeks to keep up with the high demand. You can learn more about Nexus devices and stay updated at

We’ve also begun rolling out Android 4.2, Jelly Bean, to Galaxy Nexus and Nexus 7 devices, via an over-the-air update. Check out what’s new here:

After 20 minutes of trying, I finally managed to purchase one of the N7 3G tablets. I am so very happy and I can't wait to get it. Thank you for making such a great product!!+17
Tim Glaser3 years ago
Earlier today you sold out of the N4 in a few minutes after putting it on sale about half an hour before you said you would.

Also your storefront was a disaster.

Also Google Wallet says my order won't ship until 11/15.

I'm SUPER excited about this device, but you could not have handled this launch worse.

Thanks for the email notification that it was available...NOT. It's OK though because I was just refreshing the page and was able to add the 16gb N4 to my shopping cart and...wait for it...wait for screwed in the end because I kept getting an error. Thanks for the snub Google. +150
And to echo +Tim Glaser's point, the storefront was appalling. I woke up early to get my order in and spent about 20 minutes trawling through error messages and being kicked out of the system, then only to be told that you had sold out. And I never got a reminder email!

You would think Google of all people would be able to handle this kind of traffic!

Dear +Nexus ,

I tried.  I really did.  For the 5 minutes that the Nexus 4 seemed to be available for order, I frantically tried to order one.  From what I hear, so did a lot of other people that I know.  The end result?  Nothing but "Oops, an error occurred" or "jwt: requires 3 parameters" errors, mysterious emptyings of my cart, and trying to start over again.  5 times I had a 16g N4 in my cart.  Did I ever succeed in getting through to the payment process?  Not once.   

Folks, I went through hell ordering my N7, and it looks like if I want an N4 I'll have to do the same.   Please, stop doing this.  Wait an extra week or three to have enough stock to meet demand.   This is not the way to make people happy with the thought of buying a Nexus product online from you folks.


Gaetan Fryer3 years ago
I didn't get the nexus 4 on its release date... it did upset me a little,

   but all things considered that is such a #firstworldproblems  

      so I'm chilled and confident I'll get one later if I still want one 

sold out?+1

It's almost like you don't want us to get our hands on these devices. I managed to get one Nexus 4 into a cart, and then poof, it was gone.

Allowing pre-orders might have given you guys some idea of demand.

Yes, I'm annoyed and frustrated at the whole experience.

Michael Vescovo3 years ago
but it doesn't say out of stock. it says coming soon for nexus 4. only the nexus 10 says add to cart. this is from Melbourne. obviously this thing is not even consistent in the same country! the only thing that changed was the date of the 13th was removed and now there is no date. just coming soon. I don't understand why they can't just take the orders. Even if it's out of stock. just put a longer delivery date with disclaimers etc. it will save from having to keep checking if it's available yet.+15

I got a notify email, but after that came, refreshing every thirty seconds, I only got an add to cart option an hour later.

I'm in the UK.

O2 and Carphone Warehouse will sell a Nexus 4 at £100 over the Google asking price, and the fact that they have the stock to do it seems a little shady to me.

I've looked at this message in Norway since the day Nexus 7 was launched elsewere :

"Sorry, devices are not yet available on the Android Market in your country.

How soon?!?

Epic fail of a launch and underestimating demand by a lot.  So from reading about thermal throttling issues on AnandTech is there a manufacturing problem that there isn't a lot of phones available and now all sold or is your distribution system just that incompetent that no one bothered to research how much demand there was.  That "Notify me" sign-up should have clued you in Google.  Shame.+20

I was one of the luckier ones who got through the ordering process rather painlessly and got the phone I want... But I must chime in that the handling of the whole launch process could have been better.  May be Google is truly surprised by the demand and if that's the case, congratulations.  I sure hope that it's not simply someone got lazy and dropped the ball.

p.s. I still haven't gotten my "available" notification email... Glad I didn't wait for it...

Logan Kanady3 years ago
I tried and tried to get one as well guys. Than I got the bright idea to just pick me up a 8gb version while everyone was fighting over the 16gb. Just be more conservative and maybe you couldve had one as well. But I do agree. Such a anticipated phone and it sells out in 30 minutes. Not very good.

*just reading comments again, guys. They don't just wing these things. They had analysts analyze it, got a number of what they think would sell. And they made that many. Give it 3 weeks and you will all have your phones. No worries. Good Christmas gift. 
What a disappointment. I was hoping to get my hands on a Nexus 4 this week, now you're sold out and you have nothing better to say than "in a few weeks" - what a clusterfuck. Thanks for nothing, Google. Why can't we preorder these devices?+24

I cannot believe they didn't apologise for the problems! You owe many of us an apology and an explanation - and priority access to the next batch - your storefront gave us so many errors, it was a disaster. Personally, I was at the wallet stage twice and my cart randomly emptied! Same happened to at least 4 friends of mine. If you look  at Twitter (  #Nexus4 ) you'll see a LOT of complaints, all indicating various errors, crashes and problems with the ordering process. Can't believe you are ignoring this. Poor form, really poor form.+46

Jerry Ham3 years ago
As others have said this has been a confirmation of how poorly Google does with physical sales / fulfillment. I've been waiting for the Nexus 4 for months. I got up at 2:30 AM and started trying to purchase only to find it not available "yet". I finally found it available at 8:37 AM and got one in my cart and made it to the final step - selected a credit card and shipping address - only to have the Play store get an error and then automatically cancel my order! After that I managed to get one in the cart once or twice but it would never let me actually get past that. Obviously some people got them as you sold out everywhere in under an hour. An underestimation of demand and an underestimation of the horsepower needed to run an e-commerce site. Next time maybe have Amazon or someone versed in this handle your fulfillment. I was also one of the people signed up for notifications - and never got that notification. Just a fail all around. When can I get the phone now? It was my Christmas present so I hope there are more on the way.+20

I want one of these phones as much or more than the next guy but the outrage being expressed everywhere is hilarious.

Guys this is really embarrassing for a company that can run drumrolll youtube !!! YOUTUBE for FSM's sake!
How can it be that I can add the #Nexus4  twice to the shoppig cart and there is a server error?!
And available for exactly 10minutes (at least in germany)

But the biggest slap in my face was, that, after those 10mins of failure on your side, I received an email, telling me that I can now order the Nexus 4.

Seriously guys, telling that you didn't expect such a demand is just a lie. nothing more, nothing less and a big, big disappointment.

FSM dammit, you run YOUTUBE but cannot handle the ordering of a phone???

Fair enough if it sells out fast - I expected as much an a combination or production line woes and marketing stategy - very tech device wants a sellout and free press.

However, my shopping experience was very poor in the UK.  I got that phone into my shopping basket twice but it vanished each time I went to pay.  There were other connection errors as others have mentioned.   With your data center capacity, this should have been an easy win.

Tim Glaser3 years ago
+Bryan Mordt the comparison is to the launch of a much much larger product, like the iPhone 5, which was quite pleasant  and didn't result in an entire store front crashing, and forcing people who want the product to spam refresh hoping that one comes back in stock.

Why isn't google accepting orders that will be filled once they are available?

It's embarrassing that a company with the scale of google cant' sell a moderately popular product efficiently.
Tim Struijs3 years ago
Tsss and I just noticed this sentence, and I quote "Earlier today, we began selling three new Nexus devices around the world"

What where you thinking? You can't be serious! I'm so disappointed! And many with me.

It's just a cheap marketing trick, don't you guys get it? See what's trending now - you think it's because of the launch? No, it's because people are saying how it sold out in 20-30 minutes, which in peoples' eyes equals to "wow, this thing must be awesome if it sold out that quickly, I might as well check on it and I might get it." Not cool at all but this is the business world. :)+6

Good job, Google. First, notification emails weren't sent out. Then it's put on sale a half hour before your customer service said it would be. Then the servers choke on demand, and your fans get short-changed.

I had one in my cart for 35 minutes, trying to process the order before it was finally removed from my cart and I got the "not in stock" notification.

I never got my email notice that the Nexus 4 is available in Canada yet.  Sounds like they're sold out everywhere though.

Well done Google... what a disaster.

F5 I just got one.
+Nexus it was the most horrendous experience trying to buy one of these. One second it was available the next it was not. Worst of all - I started closely watching the #GooglePlay website at 8:00 AM in the UK. I say the link turn to 'in stock' at 8:16 or so. Kept adding the device to the cart and kept getting an error while checking out - either the #GooglePlay website or #GoogleWallet kept failing. Then it went out of stock. Now I am stuck with a wait and I am not going to be able to get this until after Christmas :(

The worst part of the story is that I receive an email at 8:38 saying that the Nexus 4 is in stock and when I clicked on the link it was already sold out! This was an #epicfail on Google's part.

Don't know why people can't figure out that a million people hitting the Nexus 4 page results in a denial of service type attack.  Of course you aren't going to get in.  Apple buyers get the same response on iPwn release day.  And Apple runs out of stock after an hour, and Apple users whine and swear about what a debaucle it is.  Relax, your phone will be available soon.  Well, soon-ish....kinda+2

I bought a Nexus 7 a month ago from Google Play.  Some initial difficulty because it was set up for the wrong country but a quick phone call to Google's excellent help desk and a reset later I launched into a world of delight. I feel confident that Google has hit the sweet spot with this new range.
I had a brief thought about the Nexus 4 but the smallish fixed battery and the mediocre built in camera utility put me off. Instead I am living with my Galaxy S2 and extending with a Samsung Galaxy Camera and better photographs.  Different folks, different strokes.

Nexus 4 is my 1st Smartphone :)

But, I must say the Playstore ordering process in the UK was terrible. Multiple failed attempts, then a transaction telling me there was a problem processing the order. I assumed it had failed so had numerous more failed attempts before finally getting an email saying the original order had gone through.

Not a good experience Google :(

To quote betanews "If anyone should be able to handle online orders, other than Amazon, Google should be it. This is a cloud company, after all. But today's Nexus 4 and Nexus 7 sales debuts are a total bust, with countless processing errors. Google pissed off the wrong people."

I am US military serving overseas. I was able to order a Nexus 4 with a VPN, then you cancelled my order because it was being shipped to an APO address. 1 day after Veterans day and I get treated like this. If you don't want to ship to US military serving overseas than remove the option in the address to ship to us!!+6
No pre-orders, no ability to back order one and have it shipped when there are more in stock, no announced sale time just randomly at some point during the day, very small initial amount of phones that it sells out in minutes anyway. This phone appeals to me as I need a clean android experience phone for app development, even if it means having one without LTE. But with this kind of fiasco it is almost enough to give up developing on the android platform and go over to Windows Phone or even back to iOS.+2
I had a good experience with google support when my n7 had a screen issue. Unfortuntaly they had confusion on if they were shipping on out first then I ship mine back or if I just ship first... So I waited two weeks to find that I was supposed to ship mine first. +1

I'm very disappointed, first.. when i received the email i was already trying to order it, and i was already trying for about 20 mins.. i tried to get passed the wallet thing for about 20 minutes and at the end nothing.
This was an epic fail. 
For how many people said they weren't buying the n4 because of no LTE a lot of people are sure upset it sold out so fast... I'm amazed. I'll wait, I don't have the scratch right now anyway.. but I do plan to get one. Something about it is calling me...

Matt Trefethen3 years ago
Today's sale was a complete and utter failure from a technology standpoint. I can understand the stock limitations and selling out quickly but the rash of errors either from the Play store or from Google Wallet were simply ridiculous. Having items disappear from carts in mid-order is just a horrible way to treat your customers and it is 100% preventable. I realize that consumer demand essentially acted as a DDoS on the infrastructure but that should have been simulated and tested for in a better manner. Combined with the late or total lack of notification on the release and its random timing just made people mad. A simple pre-order mechanism would have prevented this from escalating to the scale it's currently at. Sadly this is on par with the same load issues and bevy of errors that occurred during the Google IO ticket sales earlier this year. It seems to me that Google didn't learn any lessons from that experience.+16

This is another example of the lack of communication between parts of google. Marketing pushing the launch date. Play store not knowing how much demand there will be, and not being able to handle the traffic. Play store doing nothing with the notify requests. Whoever's talking to LG didn't know how much supply LG could give them. International legal teams unable to get the device into other markets (not like they'd have enough supply anyway). In the end, Google just pissed off all the hardcore customers that wanted to order the Nexus4 today.+14
Cagada monumental....+2
Well, I have to say it: "Sorry! Devices on Google Play is not available in your country yet."

I would love to buy the devices directly from you instead of the retailers (especially since the price for the Nexus 4 is gonna sky rocket when bought at retailers via LG), but you leave me no choice...

was today the ultimate google computing power test #ugcpt  ?

1) you sell today:
 - 3 devices which got hyped and where long awaited
 - without preorder possibility
 - not on 1-2 countries, but worldwide (with same 10 min availability of a few phones until sold out)

2) you ship android 4.2 OTA (worldwide=?)

3) you start roll out google music in some countries (maybe nobody noticed)

Until today I NEVER imagined that it is possible that google suffers from such severe performance problems as reported by playstore customers and it hurts your reputation. You sell products like AppEngine, handle millions of searches each second but are not able to handle the load on playstore? But what comes on top of it, you just wanted that #ugcpt  ... preorders starting on 1.11. and today you would not have upset so many customers and fans all over the world.

I think google need to be really really carefully handling this, I know at the end of the day, who cares about the few complainers who weren't lucky right? Well I'm so annoyed and it's put into doubt how I see Google as a company, I was rushing trying to buy the Nexus 4 16GB option the first moment I heard it was up, after checking all night for it to go online (a luxury I had that today as it was a day off for me) why did I have to constantly be checking? because despite signing up to a mail list no attempt was made to inform me of the device being on sale. I was online and had the item I wanted constantly coming and going into my cart and was plagued by constant errors.

I'm sure today "Nexus sold out" are the big headlines that ring out over the complaining few but I think the fact Google hasn't even apologised for it makes me furious and the fact there's not even a sure fire way that next time this won't just happen again just makes it worse.

This is the first nexus phone in the UK to be sold by Google directly, I've waited a along time to see it happen and it turns out like this, come on, be the company that we all know and love, put your hands up and say "we've messed up, we're sorry and we're going to make sure the people who want it that bad will be the people who get it first next time"

What a balls up of a launch! Ok so all devices sold out, that's a good thing and the fact that do many people want these devices, show that the Nexus brand has a strong following and demand.

The real piss take is how Google handled the launch and how many problems everyone seemed to face. Notification emails not being sent, error messages everywhere, hell the shop front wasn't even changed to show the devices were for sale and still hasn't changed, still shows 'learn more' next to each device, just as it did while the sale was ongoing and still up whilst all stock had gone, giving hope that refreshing the page may give you a chance. Could they have put up, 'currently out of stock' or something?

Very very poor show by Google today, and this was my 1st time at buying hardware from the play store, not a good 1st impression.

Take a look at almost any forums, anywhere, and you will see the number of people switching not just from Nexuses, but Android altogether. How many times does it take to get it right? You were surprised when the S/One (I forget which) didn't sell when you had plenty of stock, but then you're surprised and unprepared when the 4 (A cheap but VERY high-end phone) sells amazingly well? You should have learnt from the GNex and 7 - and even those examples need not have happened

Google, I have always thought you had your shit together......until today. What a poor excuse for a launch of a much anticipated device. Quad core,unlocked and running the latest Android Jelly Bean and it seems like the stock you had available to sell was barely enough to fill the back seat in a Mini Cooper. Man does this put a bad taste in my mouth. Do you realize how many die hard droid heads sat refreshing their browsers every second. I wouldn't be surprised if a few lost their f5 keys due to the whole mess. I hate Apple and their stale ass iOS, but damn when they release a phone they release a god damn phone! None of this "notify me" bullshit. Either you have it or you don't. End of rant.+5

You dare be "proud" of this thing you called "launch"??
You seem to be surprised by the sold out... Do you have walked around the Web this last weeks?? Dunno...somewhere like in Android/Nexus forum?? You would have seen our interest

This launch was a joke...
No communication from Google except "November 13th", no ETA... And it seems it will be like that for the next release...planned for the coming weeks...
Google Play unable to support all the traffic... Who can have a serious server if you, Google, cannot (or don't want i would say)...?

I really don't like the Apple's "sold out strategy" but...The last iPhone5 was available about 2 or 3 days before sold out... Remind me about Nexus 4?? 15/30 minutes?? You really are kidding us... How many devices can be sold in 15 minutes?

Just see how many people succeed in ordering Nexus4 in this thread...
I was settled to get a Nexus 10 with 32GB when I realized the premium of going from 16 to 32GB in relation to Nexus 7:
Nexus 7:  +$50
Nexus 10: +$100
Is Google kidding us?

Seriously, what are we supposed to make of that? For God's sake, just a double capacity IC, maybe the same part in both devices!

As far as I know, there's no other differences, storage size aside.

Honestly +Nexus, how many devices did you actually make available in Canada? I had one in my shopping cart at 11:38am, which magically disappeared and was apparently sold out after that point. I have to reiterate what everyone else has said here, the Nexus 4 was sold out well before noon and never became available again. I'd like to know exactly how many phones you sold here (Canada) on launch day. 100? 200? Come on. This same nonsense happened with the Nexus 7 launch. I had a million issues with the play store, waited weeks longer than any other country to receive my tablet and then had to fight with you for 6 weeks to get a refund. Truly horrible experience again.

David Harbage3 years ago
Instead of complaining, let's think of how we can fix this so it doesn't happen again. If you can't possibly meet the expected demand for your product, engineer a system that gives everyone who wants to buy it on launch date a fair chance of getting it on launch day. Take a page out Phish's book: they ran into these same problems selling concert tickets, so they devised a lottery system where you put in a request for what you want at any point over a couple weeks prior to release, then on release day people who have winning lottery numbers are informed that they got the product, while people who have losing lottery numbers are informed of a second release date when the product will be available to the public. This way you sell the same number of products on launch day as you would have anyway, without the server issues and dissatisfied customers.

This is the kind of thing that Google could really excel at with all of the algorithm geniuses working there, but they just completely overlook it.

This made my decision easy. Just ordered the HTC one x+ at least I will get that tomorrow. I thought after the Nexus 7 mess it would be better this time. Big fail.+1
The problem is: we're going to be entitled to the same treatment for the next batches... Every time a new batch becomes available will be like playing hit or miss... Why doesn't Google give us the possibility to place orders?

If I don't manage to order my Nexus 4 by the end of the month I'm gonna pass...
This wasn't a launch. This was a fucking joke.

1) not saying exactly what time orders would be taken.
2) Sending out notification emails an hour after you open for orders.
3) Not allowing pre orders
4) Server errors
5) Completely inept basket causing items to randomly disappear from it and then having to go through the entire process again and again.
6) CLEARLY having more stock in other regions (American orders seemingly went on for a good hour rather than the 20 or so minutes us Brits had.)
7) The only current way to buy a Nexus 4 is to go to a shop or buy one through a third party retailer/on contract and pay several hundred pounds more than the Play Store.

I believe I actually had Google Wallet attempt to process my order 4 times before you ran out of stock this morning...

You can't fuck up pre orders the one time, decide not to do pre orders this time and then completely under estimate how much stock you'll need when you launch your device.

Asus have recently been quoted to be selling over a million Nexus 7's every. single. month. Is that not some kind of indication?

I feel completely rubbed up the wrong way here and I'm a huge, huge fan of the Nexus program.

+Google even let people purchase multiples of the same device, so several people bought 5 #Nexus4  devices, while people who have been waiting all night like me were able to get none.

If they could have just created pre-orders they could have anticipated demand, weeks in advance and have shipments sent out in a timely manner without having servers crash on launch. 
Allowing people to order multiple devices is also a mistake especially when about maybe 10% actually managed to get through the the order screen. 
Tom Hunt3 years ago
I am actually super shitty with this 'release'.
I'm sick of apple. But you have to hand it to them with releases. They change shipping dates rather than when sold out of initial batch, put up a 'coming soon' sign.
Google, you are an internet company, I don't understand how someone at the forfront of the internet can have such a complete screw up.
I went online in Australia at midnight for the launch as it said on our website "Available on the 13th November". But when I went on, nothing. So I figured it was a USA thing. Only to find out that at 12pm in Australia it went on sale. WTF??? Its the middle of the day. Not the start or not anywhere near EST in America.
So 'if' we were able to get one, we would have to sit on the page all day hitting refresh. Like i've got nothing better to do with my time.
Secondly, did you only release 100 or 150 units to Australia. They sold out in under 20 minutes.
How about having a place where, like apple (who I can't stand anymore, hence why the Nexus move) have an option where you can still buy the product, yet the shipping date moves back and a least we know that we are in line for the item. Unlike the system which one can only assume you are going to do again, is release another 100 or so units per country and do it at some complete random time of the day an sell out again in 20 - 30 minutes.
Get your s@#t in order Google. You want to take on the market place with your products, then start acting like you really mean it.

Well, I got one after trying for 5 min.  Google could have done a better job for sure, but i'd be interested in what their web traffic was like today in the Play Store, and total number sold.

And to those who say the Touchpad sale wasn't as bad as this... You have some bad memories.  For weeks after the initial sale started, every time a site would get a little stock, that website would be mobbed by people trying to get one, and crash.  Weeks.

Google could have handled this better for sure, but it really wasn't that bad.  Calm down, even if you didn't get an order in today, you'll be able to get one in your hands in a couple weeks or less. Not the end of the world.
