The Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 went on sale today via the Play Store and sold out within 20 minutes of the ordering page going live. The handset and the tablet first went on sale in Australia and sold out in exactly 20 minutes. In other regions of the world, including the United Kingdom and Europe, the ordering page of the handset was hardly live for 5 minutes.
Interested buyers who tried to purchase the Nexus 4 or the Nexus 10 usually ended up getting “an error occurred while processing your order” when they tried to purchase the devices using Play Store. However, later on, most of them got a confirmation mail from Google saying their order has been successfully approved and their credit card charged.
It is not yet known whether there was actually so much demand for the Nexus 4 or Google grossly under-estimated the demand for the handset. Even then, most buyers were not at all pleased with how the Play Store behaved when they were purchasing the new Nexii devices from Google.
The Nexus 4 is, however, yet to go on sale in the United States. The handset, along with the Nexus 10, will be available for purchase from the Play Store at 9AM PST/12PM EST as confirmed by Google.
