Nexus Availability Update: Nexus 7 16GB, Nexus 10 32GB, and Nexus 4 8GB “Sold Out”

Many of you may be making final holiday present preparations, so we thought an update to the status of the Nexus lineup in the Google Play was in store. If you were planning to pickup a Nexus 4 8GB, Nexus 7 16GB, or Nexus 10 32GB, you should probably consider other options.

The 8GB version of the Nexus 4 has been sold out for at least a week, the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 joined it this week, and the 32GB version of the Nexus 10 flipped to “Sold Out” this morning. In the past, we have seen the shipping estimate extended for devices rather than a dead-end “Sold Out,” so they really must be struggling to keep up with demand.

Update 12/13: ย The 32GB Nexus 10 is now showing as in stock and shipping in less than a week.

Also, the 16GB version of the Nexus 4 is now shipping in 6-7 weeks, however, a number of folks are reporting much quicker shipping times. I for one received mine in about 3 weeks after having been told it would take 4-5. The 16GB Nexus 10 and two other Nexus 7 options are all at 3-5 business days, so they are still in play.

    I really must say I brought my son a Nexus 7 16gb and had it ordered to my house because his mother isn’t technologly inclined. The were only two disappointments. One issue, I couldn’t play Nexflix movies and the other it doesn’t have a rear camera. Other than that I couldn’t put it down. It is very fast in comparison to my Asus tf101 and my Acer a500 and I actually preferred the Nexus in other areas as well. I think I’ll purchase one for myself I had too much fun with it!

  • Twoin

    I’m waiting on the sold out sign to go away then I’m going to try to order the nexus 10 16gb

  • mmkkpro

    I ordered a nexus 10 16 gb on dec. 14, site showed it available,today dec. 16 im told it is on back order,so apparently the nexus 10, 16 gb is NOT in stock.

  • mmkkpro

    I ordered my nexus 10 16 gb on dec.14, play store site showed it in stock,now im told its on back order,bummed out.

  • Went to Office Depot yesterday and bought one of the last few Nexus 7 32gb in the Metro Atlanta area. These babies are flying of the door……glad I got my hands on one.

  • Ross

    Sold out online at Google Play, but i just found the Nexus 10 32gb at walmart online 12/15 plus walmart offers a breakage contract for 2 years for $44

  • Adam

    I ordered my 32gb Nexus 10 a WEEK before it started showing out of stock and now I’ve been told that my order is on backorder. wtf?

  • If anybody out there is getting the shaft from google backorders, check out your local walmart or go to walmart.com to see if it’s in stock. Here in Tampa, there are several walmarts that have it in stock. I just picked one up myself.

  • Rajesh Chandnani

    I have yet to receive my Nexus 4 16gb pre-order from eBay/cart2India booked on 10th November 2012. I just received information from the seller that it would take another 6-7 week’s.

  • Michael Thompson

    The Nexus 4’s 16gb are definitely in stock regardless of the site saying a 6-7 week wait. I ordered one yesterday, somewhat hoping in wouldn’t come until a couple of weeks later. It is shipping out today.

  • Liz

    I ordered one Dec 6th when it wasn’t sold out and it hasn’t shipped, its now “pre-ordered” with no sign of it.

  • Ordered my Nexus 10 on December the 4th when it said it was going to leave Google in less than a week. Then on December 11th they sent me an email saying that it would leave Google on December the 12th. On December the 13th my order when from pending to pre-ordered. I am very annoyed by this whole process they are putting me through.

    • sitnstew

      exact same thing happened to me. Looks like it will be a nexus-less christmas.

  • TallTony

    Update 12/14: The Nexus 10 (32GB) is showing SOLD OUT at: https://play.google.com/store/devices/details?id=nexus_10_32gb

  • Andy Christiansen

    if you buy the nexus 7 with att 4g data. do you have to buy a plan?

  • It took 3 phone calls and a transfer to a supervisor to be told that I was on backorder for the Nexus 10 32. When I placed the order 10 days previously I was assured they were in stock and my son would have the table within 5-7 days. I never received a tracking number, and e-mail or any kind of response unless I made a call and then i just got a follow up e-mail telling me what I was told on the phone. I don’t know why Samsung would leave only one avenue to buy these tablets. Google has the worse customer service I have ever experienced!

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      It’s true, they’re not very good at customer service.

  • Nexusnexus

    I ordered nexus 4 8GB for myself two weeks ago, haven’t heard anything since then, but I ordered one nexus 16GB for my Dad last Thursday, it says the estimated shipping time is 6-7 weeks, but I got a shipping confirmation next day morning and received the phone in Monday! So what does this mean? My dad said maybe google is trying to produce the models with more storage first since those can earn them more profit! It was a pleasant surprise to get it so soon! Even sooner than in stock items shipped from many online websites. But I am seriously wondering if google gave up on 8GB! Should have ordered 16GB!!!

  • ouch1976

    32GB with 4G available now at Play.

  • staples has the nexus 10’s in stock in many locations…32gb only

  • Michael Pearce

    ordered my nexus 10 16GB two days ago, and it’s scheduled to arrive at any point today ๐Ÿ˜‰

  • NYAvsFan

    Just got a 16G N7 from Staples.

  • kevg73

    they’ve been struggling with nexus 10 orders more than they are letting on. I ordered nexus 10 32gb more than a week ago when they said it would ship within a week. When it had not shipped within a week I called and they said it would ship by the end of the day yesterday. I checked the status this morning and it said I have pre-ordered it with no timeline for shipping. Gonna have to settle for 16gb.

  • Bought my Nexus 7 32gb Office Depot $224 Black Friday.

  • Office Depot also has plenty of Nexus 7 32 GB where I got mine from.

  • Plerisei

    Sigh, I wish did not take so long for my nexus 4 to arrive. I doubt Google will speed up the processor on shipping them. 6-7 weeks ๐Ÿ˜ฎ

  • Teng Taing

    You can order the Nexus 10 via Staples website and get free shipping. I did that and i even got it within 3 days.

  • Tony Allen

    In other news, the Samsung Chromebook is also sold out.

    • kretz7

      I check daily for it to come back in stock, wtf Google?!

  • kaufkin

    Staples still has plenty on the Nexus 7 both 16 and 32. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Ethan

      Yep, I saw the Play Store didn’t have the 16GB Nexus 7 in stock anymore, went to my local Staples and picked one up. They have plenty.

    • Same here! Just reserved mine at Staples and got the email that it’s ready for pickup! Office Depot has them in store as well and lets you pay online before picking up.

  • aye_winchell

    i noticed this earlier this morning when i went to order a 16er for my girl, but it was sold out, so i got the 32 gig instead, now i wonder if i set my 16 back to factory default and give her that if she’ll notice?

  • Kevin Niven

    back in stock

  • Mudokon83

    Phew, that was close, just purchased a NEXUS 10 16gb!

    Selling my ipad first gen for 200 bucks on craigslist to make back some of the price.

    Can’t wait!

    • John

      Nice. I put my wife’s 1st gen iPad up for sale too(to get the N7). You think you’ll get ~$200 for it?

      • evltwn

        Sold my 1st gen 64gb iPad for 320 on Ebay 2 weeks ago.

      • Mudokon83

        Yeah already have 5 people wanting it, its Ipad first gen, 16gb, wifi only. great condition with apple stand case.

      • Ethan

        That’s what I did- got rid of my 1st-gen iPad (16GB, Wi-Fi) on Craigslist for $225. Although to be fair, it was in near-mint condition (I’m a tech geek- all of my gadgets and gizmos are like that!)

      • Bryan

        If it says iPad in the name, then $200 probably! ๐Ÿ™‚ I have noticed that many people on craigslist buy used stuff that is almost as much as buying it new. They don’t always do much research and just assume it’s a deal if it’s on craigslist.

    • Aimee

      from where???

      • Mudokon83

        bought nexus 10 16gb, which is still in stock, from the google store. Then im selling my old ipad 1 on craigslist.

    • Scott

      Got the 10 32 gb a couple weeks ago and love it. Gonna put my ipad 2 on craigslist for 350 and see if I reel anyone in.

  • RedPandaAlex

    There should be plenty of Nexus 7s in stores. Check your local Staples.

    • small_law

      Check Walmart if you’re looking for a 32GB Nexus 10. One near me had one in lock up even though it wasn’t on display.

  • Already shaping up to be a slooooow day I see ๐Ÿ™‚

    That’s ok, 9/10 days in the Android world are full of fun, so I’ll deal with a slow day from time to time ๐Ÿ™‚

  • tu3218

    I’m excited to see how well these nexus devices are doing. Everybody that I show my nexus to is very impressed by the speed, screen, etc. And what they can’t believe is for only $200. I called staples the other day right before they closed and asked how many 16gb nexus 7 they had, they said a ton of them. I go in there at 4 the next day after work, I picked up the last 16gb. Go Google!

    • Neil Natic

      This saved my butt for my son’s x-mas. I was waiting since google was doing 15 day return policy – not 15 days after x-mas.

      Of course they sold out and I was a little frantic. Picked on up at Staples just now. Thanks man!

      • michael arazan

        Bought my parents the N7 32gb, last of 3 left in all of St.Louis, every time they are restocked everywhere they are still selling to out of stock every time in stores since they were first on the shelves., crazy.

  • FYI, Macmall has the 32GB N7 for $239 with free shipping(USPS Priority) and no tax. Makes it just a tad($10 for me) more than ordering the 16GB from the Play Store.

  • Lame.
