Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 now officially available in Play Store [UPDATE]

Nex410

The much-anticipated Google Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 are officially available to purchase through the search giant’s own Play Store. If you’ve been looking to grab one of these devices, we suggest you do so now, as we’re not sure just how many of the devices Google decided to stock up on.

The Nexus 4 is by far the best device to date in terms of specs since the Nexus One, and it’s sure to be one of the most popular handsets in the hardcore Android community. The combination of raw power and sleek style make it a force to be reckoned with. LTE be damned.

Oh yeah, and the Nexus 4′s price is also unbeatable through the Google Play Store. Starting at $299 for the 8GB version of the handset, the Nexus 4 is only $100 more than the on-contract price you’ll pay up at T-Mobile. If you don’t mind signing up for a contract on T-Mobile for the Nexus 4, by all means. It’ll be worth it, if you can wait an extra day for it. If you’re not looking to be on a two-year contract, then you should consider paying the extra $49 for the 16GB version of the Nexus 4.

The Nexus 4 is union of the LG Optimus G and Google’s design, all in one sexy package that includes the latest version of the Android OS, Jelly Bean 4.2.

Also available is the Google Nexus 10, a powerful Android tablet made in partnership with Samsung. Outside of the already awesome price point of $399, the Nexus 10 has the highest resolution display on an Android tablet we’ve ever come across at 2560 x 1600. This kind of resolution on a 10 inch tablet brings the PPI (pixels per inch) to 300.24, besting the iPad’s 263.92 PPI by 36.32 pixels, making its “Retina Display” sound even more like the marketing term that it is. While the PPI difference between the two tablets is negligible, we’ve already seen what the Nexus 10 looks like next to a printed magazine, and now that ultra crisp display can be yours without breaking the bank.

You can also expect the Nexus 10 to rock Samsung’s own Exynos 5 dual-core ARM Cortex-A15 processor and the Mali-T604 graphics processor, proving that this tablet is not messing around. It’s oozing with power

Whichever device you’re looking at, it’s now available and waiting for you.

[UPDATE] And just like that, less than half an hour after made officially available, the 16GB Nexus 4 has been sold out. You can still grab the 8GB Nexus 4, for now, and both versions of the Nexus 10 are still available at the moment.

    Been trying to complete the purchase for the 16GB model since a little after 8:30 PST with all sorts of errors and no luck yet.

      Now the 16GB model is back to showing as “Coming Soon”.  The 8GB still says “In Stock”, but I can’t even get to the part where I choose my shipping address in Google Wallet.  This sucks.

    Just keep trying…after about 50 failed attempts, I got order confirmations for 2 of the orders, so I’ll just cancel the extra…good luck everyone.

    Just got an order confirmation on an 8GB model (it would go back and forth between “In Stock” and “Notify Me” when I would refresh).  I’m still trying to get a 16GB model, but we’ll see how it goes.  Honestly, with the way I use my phone with Google’s cloud services and Pandora, I might not really NEED 16GB.

    they are both sold out now. After 80,000 attempts, I finally got my order through and it said problem processing your order. I got an order confirmation number but no email. I hope my order goes through and it says pending on my GW transactions. This is got the 16gb model.

      my bank said the purchase went through

      • tdoughone

        and got the confirmation email and a shipping date

    Simply ridiculous the way that Google Play began selling the Nexus 4. After seeing the items simply disappeared from my basket, I’ll have to wait to be able to try to buy the items again.
    Only error message appears when processing the request and does not close the application.
    Totally absurd a company like Google provide such a service.
    I’ll buy an iphone 5. At least the Apple site WORKS

    Not sold out yet. US Playstore is having issues. This was taken directly from a phone rep.
