some real disappointment ...
Just received this email from Google Play Store:
"Thank you for your recent purchase on Google Play. Due to overwhelming demand, your Nexus 4 is on backorder and is expected to ship within three weeks. We’ll send you a notification when your order has shipped and will credit the shipping charges."
My other phone was lost late October, and I was eagerly awaiting the N4 release, feeling fortunate that I had actually been able to purchase one.
Now it appears that my "Pending" order been shuffled into the next availability window.
To be honest, this has been the worst online shopping experience I've ever had after many years. I consider it a Google experience though, not an Android one.
