2013 Nexus Availability Update: Nexus 4 Still Gone, Nexus 7 and 10s “Ship Soon”

Nexus 4 Sold Out Jan 2

Now with 2013 in full effect, it’s time to step up your Android game. Unfortunately, Google is still completely sold out of the Nexus 4, but if a tablet is what you have your eyes set on, you are in luck.

Since the last time we wrote up an availability post, the Nexus 10 is now “shipping soon” as well as the Nexus 7, although the $200 16GB variant is currently sold out. There is no telling when we can expect to see the Nexus 4 come back, but we will keep you posted.

    Its out of stock now.
    How to get notification / pre-order Nexus4 ?

  • Andrew R

    I orderd a Nexus 7 32GB on December 4 and still no info from Google on shipping. I even tried emailing them and got no response in 2 weeks. Thinking of just cancelling and getting a Kindle.

  • D_F

    Yeah, I’m seeing the Nexus 10 at my local Walmart. No need to wait for Google to ship it.

  • rip

    They charged me 2 day shipping on the Nexus 7 and I couldn’t shipping so they better be shipping them now!

  • Baff

    Annoying because I’m getting a Nexus 10, but it’s being bought for me as a gift so I can’t really nag them to buy it quickly and it’ll probably go out of stock before they attempt to do so. Does anyone know if they’re selling it in the UK at anywhere other than the Play store?

  • I ordered a Nexus 10 32GB early Wednesday afternoon, as soon as I saw the “shipping soon” status. I have my UPS tracking number today; Google emailed me that it shipped last night, i.e. the day I ordered it.

  • bvirk

    what company is the next nexus coming out??? i heard it might be with a motorola…

  • Prime7

    I’m pretty sure those estimates are wrong. I ordered some Nexus devices for my company toward the end of last year, including one slated to ship in “weeks” last month, and they all came within days. If you really want it, just place an order.

  • legend618

    Droid Life please grill LG and Google next week at CES about this. they can’t proudly showcase new phones while nexus 4 is in shambles. shame

  • humza_13

    i ordered mine on December 3, anyone know when this beauty is gonna come?

  • evltwn

    Ordered the N7 32GB Wifi-3g model the day after xmas and received that Friday. 🙂 they are shipping very quick.

  • John Murray

    Seriously….They wait any longer to get their stock in order, I might be tempted to wait it out for something else.

  • Chad

    My mom found her Nexus 10 at Wal-Mart. No wait, no fuss. Is ordering it online something special?

    • Gitilo

      I think you mean the Nexus 7. They don’d sell the Nexus 4 or 10 anywhere except for the Google Play Store.

      • The N10 was going to be going to Walmart.

      • D_F

        No, I’m seeing Nexus 10 at my Walmart as well, and I mean Nexus 10, I even double checked to make sure. The 32GiB model.

  • luisito_ortiz

    The Nexus 4 phones ordered on 11/27 have started arriving today. Nice to finally have one on my hands.

  • Sirx

    Has anyone had experience with the Nexus 10? Does it actually run smoothly? I recently got the Transformer Prime Infinity running Android 4.1.1 (stock, unrooted), and have more redraw, lag, and force close issues than I ever expected from a $500+ piece of QUAD-CORE technology.

    Thinking of sending it back and trying Nexus 10. Worth it?

    • RichardBurdette

      I have the N10 and it is an awesome beast. Compares favorably with the ipad 4 in smoothness. I also had the Infinity and returned it soon after I bought it because of the lag. The N10 has significantly more pixels and does not resemble the infinity at all when it comes to lag, quite the contrary. Make the trade you won’t regret it.

      • Sirx

        Thank you both for the feedback. You have been tremendous helps!

    • Rodeojones000

      My wife surprised me with the 32GB Nexus 10 for Christmas. I love it. It absolutely flies and the display is amazing. I’ve kept it locked and unrooted and probably will. I’m even quite happy with battery life (many complain but I have no problem with it). I was sick yesterday so I was in bed using it all day. Got over 7 hours of screen on time before I had to charge it. If you have an opportunity to get one I say go for it.

  • Just pray that you won’t require a refund from them. It’s 3 days shy of a month since I ordered and over 3 weeks since they said they’d refund. Still nothing.

  • Well, waiting at my door for my Nexus 4. Should be here today.

    • Well I got it and its already rooted! flashing PA Rom.

  • RSLP

    I ordered a 16GB N10 for my gf’s birthday today. So glad they finally came back in stock to get it in time.

  • NickA

    I gave up on the Nexus 4 and got a Droid DNA instead. I’ll just wait for the Moto/Google Nexus to come out. Still want a Nexus 10 though.

  • Patiently waiting for Droid Life to tell me what case to get for my Nexus 10. Also, the POGO charger.

  • By the time they restock, next Nexus is going to come out!

    • Just ordered a 10. Ships in a week.

      • RSLP

        I ordered yesterday and already got a shipping notice.

      • you cannot order more then 2 , can you ?

  • Sean Stone

    Wife surprised me with a 32GB N10 for Christmas, but both “Do not accept this package if seals are broken” seals were broken on the box, so we had to send it back, now I’m waiting for a replacement. Here’s hoping this means it’s coming this week.

    • You know she opened it and played with it before she gave it to you.

  • Droidzilla

    So glad I got 2 Nexus 4s before they went out of stock. Love this phone!

    • When did you order yours? i ordered mines december 13th and im still waiting.

      • Droidzilla

        Ordered mine in the mad rush on November 27th and got them about a week later; 2x 16GB. Best electronics purchase I’ve made in a very long time; maybe ever.

    • Nick V

      I am loving the N4 too. I got one for both myself and the wife. We even cancelled our contracts with Verizon early.

      • Droidzilla

        Did exactly the same thing, but sold my contract for >$100 instead of canceling it and getting hit with the ETF. We use Google Voice numbers, so no sweat there.

        • xzombiex66

          How would i go about selling mine? would love to sell my verizon Unlimited plan when i get my Nexus 4.

          • Droidzilla

            Check out Howard forums and Google Verizon Assumption of Liability. It’s actually pretty easy to do.

          • Tony Byatt

            Did you have an Unlimited Data plan?

          • Droidzilla

            Yes. I had two lines, one unlimited and the other 4GB/month (from when they were doing the double data promotion, so it was $30/month).

          • Tony Byatt

            Were you able to keep your numbers?

          • Droidzilla

            That’s do able, but tough. You would have to have the cooperation of the buyer and have your numbers ported as soon as the buyer ported new numbers to the line they purchased. If you do that, I’d port the numbers over to Google Voice so you always have them and don’t ever have to worry about switching up. I use Google Voice, so my Verizon numbers were inconsequential (as are my T-Mobile and Straight Talk numbers now).

          • Tony Byatt

            I got you…Thanks a ton, you’re a big help. I’m trying to find a way to get Verizon’s boot off my throat…

          • Droidzilla

            Good luck! I sure breath easier with my and my wife’s Nexus 4s unlocked and dirt cheap per month.

  • Jordan

    I have a Nexus 10 but I was waiting for Google to come out with a reputable case…Any news on future accessories?

    • Sean Stone

      http://goo.gl/p129Z This is the case I ordered.

      • Velmeran

        I actually ordered all 3 of the Poetic Nexus 10 cases on Amazon when they first put them up (huge discounts on each). The Hardback is a really nice case. It fits nicely, has 2 solid landscape viewing angles built into the case and offers some decent protection. I preferred it over the slimbook version which I only used for about a day.

        I just got the Slimline on Monday — which I’m very much a fan of, my wife has the N7 version. I believe I’ll be using the slimline version from here on out, though I will probably keep the hardback to use when traveling for extended periods.

      • Poetic is awesome, I love the $6 shipping included N4 bumper I got from em on Amazon, definitely a quality product.

  • I’ll give em 2 more months until they restock on N4s.

  • alphathirteen

    It seems like the case I ordered is going to be collecting lots of dust before it ever hugs a Nexus 4. Sigh.

    • Nick V

      Which one did you get? The wife and I got the iBlasons. I got the clear so I can see the pattern, and my wife got the blue.

      • alphathirteen

        I ordered the matte black Rearth Ringke SLIM. I wasn’t that determined to keep the pattern visible. Who knows, maybe I’ll miss it.

        • Nick V

          I like the pattern. It is something I get asked to see a lot, strangely.

  • ChristianJohnson

    So now about 12 people have a Nexus 4? They’re definitely improving.

  • MattH818

    Love my N4. Trying to decide if selling my Transformer Prime and getting a N10 is worth it.

    • Prox

      I am in the same boat. I think I might wait for the Tegra 4

    • Uhhhh…YEA! lol

    • Nick V

      ASUS has made life with a dock so appealing, that I don’t think I could go without one. Not that I use it all the time, but there are so many times when I am typing something for work, business, or onto Evernote, that without that dock, it would be a hassle.

    • I’m enjoying the N10 a lot. It’s definitely the best 10″ tablet that I’ve played with so far.
