Nexus Availability Update: Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 Completely Sold Out, 16GB Nexus 7 Too

Since it’s Monday and we are days away from X-mas, it seemed appropriate to update the Nexus situation in the Google Play store. Last week, the 8GB Nexus 4, 16GB Nexus 7, and 32GB Nexus 10 were all marked as “Sold Out,” which means they weren’t even available for backorder. Previously, Google had changed to an extended shipping period so that customers could still order the device, just not expect it to arrive for weeks. We aren’t sure what changed, but those days are gone. 

As of this week, both versions of the Nexus 4 (8GB and 16GB), both versions of the Nexus 10 (16GB and 32GB), and the 16GB Nexus 7 are all “Sold Out.” If you were hoping to pick any of these up as last minute presents, you are out of luck. It’s a shame, but with Google now admitting to supply issues from their partners, we can only hope that they have a plan to get this train back on track.

Oh, the Bumper case for the Nexus 4 is also sold out (our hands-on).

    I bought a nexus 7 16gb for 150$ with a case on craigslist, perfect condition with a screen protector and the box. There is no better place to buy stuff cheap imo.

  • roula theodoropoulos

    You guys MUST step it up! At least with the phones. :/ I would totally help if I could lol.

  • frothy333

    I was very surprised at what a huge failure this roll out has been. What irritates me is that Google continues to advertise the 3 Nexus devices when they can’t meet the current demand and haven’t been able to since the first “attempt” at a launch. Please pull the advertising until your company is capable of coordinating and sustaining a product launch, sustaining being the key word here. I’m going to be faithful and wait for items to be in stock before even trying to place an order b/c I have been waiting for about a year for these devices, so waiting a little while longer won’t kill me.

    I’ve been looking everywhere (sold out @ playstore and Staples online) but I finally found the nexus 10 32 GB! It’s available at walmart online: I would suggest getting it before they become sold out as well! http://www.walmart.com/ip/Google-Nexus-10-with-WiFi-10-Touchscreen-Tablet-PC-Featuring-Android-4.2-Jelly-Bean-Operating-System-Grey/22088419

  • Akashshr

    Is anyone having trouble with the ear piece, I got mine!
    And the ear piece seems, like almost muted, even on max volume!

    @Kellex Sup! Any light on this.?

  • Trevor

    I don’t know if I should be happy the Nexus devices are selling well, or sad about the lack of availability.

  • DJ SPY

    You know, I’ve been going to Walmart the last few days and weeks and they always have about a dozen Nexus 7 devices in stock. 16 and 32gb.

  • Sirx

    Good. All the more incentive to get my Transformer Prime Infinity. Google and its non-expandable storage can go suck an eggnog!

  • zulu208

    i hope they ship my parents before they leave town! would like to show them how to use it.

  • I was saving money to get a Nexus 4. 🙁

  • Raptor Dalan

    I love my nexus 4 . its worth the wait guys and gals!

  • bodotdot

    Quick check of Ebay shows ten new 16gb Nexus 7’s up for grabs, each w/ under 24 hours left…eight of those ten are over $200 already, with over 10 bids each.

  • Ordered the 7- 32GB this morning from the Playstore- Went that route after hearing a couple horror stories from folks trying to get defective units exchanged after other online retailers 30 day exchange limit ran out. Bye Bye 1st gen boat anchor ipad – lol

  • Gamestop are Nexus 7 sellers as well. Thats where I bought mine.

  • deadofknight

    Damn… So close to getting my Bonus check too… I wanted to get a Nexus 4 and jump ship from Big Red. Been on them for several years now, and still haven’t gotten a 4g phone, so this phone would be a major upgrade from my Droid 3.

  • I just hope they work out all the kinks so when they release an unlocked $299 LTE phone for Verizon it’ll be smooth sailing. A guy can dream, right? (Picturing a solid unlocked Verizon phone with no bloat, latest OS, latest specs….. ahhhhhhhh!)

    • TheVoiceOfReason

      It’ll never happen.

  • 32gb N7 is still $239.99 + free 2-3 day shipping and no tax for most. Just got mine in on Friday.

  • I bought mine at Walmart. I didn’t even know they had it. I found out around 11:30pm and ran out to buy it…lol. I love it. My iPad 3 will be going to my 5 year old where the OS can be appreciated, hahaha

    • precisely… nice work sir.

    • michael arazan

      Just got the N7 32 gb, one of three left of any nexus tablets in the whole store. I haven’t found a nexus tablet of any kind since they went on sale in July until now in a store. Every time they restock stores here they sell out. Luckily the office depot I was at had 3 left and was able to get one finally before waiting another month.

  • Just bought a 32gb Nexus 10 from Wal Mart (online). Get them while you can.

    • Soops

      Same here. Bought online from play store. Returned due to broken seal & too much ba k flex. Play store CSK said they can’t promised replacement since its sold out, no available inventory. Went to Walmart online, found several az stored carried on stock. Picked one up. Profit!

  • gokusimpson

    I think those deal-of-the-day ebay stores keep buying all the nexus 7 units from Asus. And I’m always too late to get one. It may have to be Staples

  • Stephen Freeman

    Wow, just Wow. Congrats to Google for putting out some Nexus hardware that is in high demand. I hope they learn their lesson from this. In the end I can’t wait for them to restock.

  • Michael Robinson

    Nexus 10 is still available from Walmart

  • anezarati

    i wonder how exactly the nexus program works. i doubt that google controls the production or manufacturing of devices. i imagine they just offer a place for them to be sold, market, and design the devices. i bet the manufacturers sell them to google at wholesale, and then google sells them to us.

  • Butters619

    Good thing I picked up a Nexus 7 last week 😀


    If your in the Columbus Ohio area I was just at Sams Club sawmill and they had the 32gb 7’s in stock.

    • Buckeyes1212

      Go buckeyes!!

  • Nexus 10 16gb & 32gb have been sold out on UK play store for 2 weeks & its not sold by any other retailers in the UK! I initially ordered one on release but had shipping issues & google ended up refunding me on the day they sold out here – wonder why that was?! The google play support team are useless & couldnt tell me they were refunding me earlier so I could have re-ordered one when they were in stock. Just think its crazy that google cant get enough stock they knew they were releasing in the lead up to Christmas right?!

  • John

    Just picked up my Nexus 7 at Staples over the weekend. They had a nut ton. Freaking love that device.

    • gokusimpson

      That’s a lot.

  • Droidzilla

    I wouldn’t doubt that manufacturers are screwing Google on this. LG wants to sell you an Optimus G, not have you purchase a Nexus 4 from Google. Samsung wants you to purchase a 10.1 Note, not purchase a Nexus 10 from Google. ASUS is the only one I trust, here, and that sellout is probably more to do with the huge demand for the Nexus 7 (been out longer and is more well known).

    • I don’t think someone unable to get a Nexus would go after an Optimus G. I don’t think even LG is silly enough to think such a thing. I honestly don’t think any OEM would pass up you having a device with their name on it just because they dont have complete control or profits of said device. That would be a dangerous risk on their part because they know you don’t have to buy a device with their branding.

      • Droidzilla

        This is LG we’re talking about here. They’re not the best and brightest when it comes to making decisions on their smartphone line. Also, I’m sure you’ve worked in a corporate environment before. The “gung ho” attitudes you get from pandering execs will always go in the direction of thinking that people will prefer their native product to a competing one; even a competing product that they build (as in the N4 vs. the Optimus G). Silly? Perhaps. Typical corporate procedure? Absolutely.

        • Perhaps you have a point but I just feel LG knows that the Nexus was their big shot to get a strong mindshare in Android which they have never really had and I highly doubt they would trade possible Optimus G sales for definite sales and increase notoriety that this Nexus line will bring to them.

          • Droidzilla

            You could very well be right and I could very well be wrong. This is just my own conjecture on it all.

  • nexusplay

    Okay, so the Nexus 4 was blamed on LG’s supply issues. What is the deal with the Nexus 10 then? I am sure samsung can get enough supply.

    • Maybe it’s just really really really ridiculously good looking

      • gokusimpson

        It’s a walk off! It’s a walk off.

  • Fan-freaking-tastic. Time to hit up Ebay.

    • T4rd

      And get raped.

      • Kurtis Tamez

        Just bought (and recieved) my brand new Nexus 7 32gb for $250 SHIPPED, and no taxes. You just aren’t good at eBay. lol

      • Droidzilla

        Do you get a discount for allowing that?

        • flosserelli

          You obviously don’t mind the thought of that tradeoff. Prison gangbang much?

          • Droidzilla

            Look, all I’m saying is that I wouldn’t take the option off the table.

          • flosserelli

            I’m just messing with you, since you left yourself “wide open” with that comment 😉

          • Droidzilla

            Stop being coy; are you willing to give me a discount for forceable violation or not?

  • WishinItWas

    If I had any money, I would be upset about this

    • Bob

      This is FACKWORS… absolute fackwors.

  • chaosrv

    I’m not a shill just a guy trying to help people out – Walmart (of all places) has the 32GB Nexus 10 in stock. I ordered mine yesterday and already received shipping confirmation.

    • Fred

      With a 2 year warranty.

      • Butters619

        Fortunately my credit card extends the warranty to 2 years as it is.

        • Fred

          Awesome….what credit card is that?

          • Butters619

            I have a Capital One Venture Card but any Visa Signature or American Express will do it. (Not sure about Master Card but I’m guessing some as well)

  • kaufkin

    Nexus 7 – 16 and 32 Wifi, Still available @ staples. (going shopping later w/ early Xma$$ money…)

    • John

      Yep. That’s where I got mine Saturday.

    • Butters619

      Obligatory yeah picked one up there late last week.

  • Yes, already painfully aware. Check Walmart.

  • Yellowsnow

    You can get plenty of deals if you look around. Google play store is def. not the only source to buy these things . . . I’ve found plenty of similar deals if not cheaper on ebay etc./slickdeals/fatwallet.
