I've heard of 3 that have shipping emails (only three!) and 2 people who have received without any prior contact from google today, all are 8gb units.

Mine is 16gb - they MUST be tomorrow ... surely?

Is there any geographical reason why some already have theirs? Are you all in the South?
I think it may be something to do with which one was ordered. Reason i say that it that i ordered a 16gb on the 27/06 and a friend of mine who lives 5 minutes away order an 8gb on the same day - his turned up today but mine never......gutted

Unfortunately looks like the 16GB is the issue. The play store changed it back to 2-3 weeks for shipping. I ordered an 8 & 16 and haven't gotten either.

I'm waiting for an 8gb but I'm WAY up in the north, the closest TNT depot is one and a half hours away. We'll have them tomorrow I reckon.

Default Hurrah ...... of sorts

I just got the my 'Shipped' email out of the blue and have no charge as yet made to my CC.

However, it has the original delivery address. They have not actioned the message I sent to them on 12th July instructing them to deliver it to a different address. Ho hum

Did you click over to the 16GB? The 8 still says 1-2 Weeks, but for me in the US, when I click over to the 16 it now says 3-4 weeks.

I should point it was from home to work so not really a catastrophe if I need to go to the TNT depot. Would have been nice to get it before the w/e though

Hmmm... ...odd. Unless they severely underestimated US demand for the 16GB version and any reinforcements are literally on a slow boat from China.

Compliments my collection of android phones quite nicely!



In the future I'm gonna get the new nexus phone whenever that comes out and a nexus tablet. Vanilla android is too nice! You don't realise how much of a drag Sense or Touchwiz is until you have a nexus device. Might just tell my Mum it never arrived, or that Apple banned it.

There really is something to be said about pure Android. I've never lived without it except for a brief time with my D2 (but I ran a custom launcher so that covered most motoblur up).

Finished training and checked phone. Gmail. Elation. You have a shipment. Even more elation. From R S Components. Deflation. At least my Raspberry Pi might keep me entertained till the Nexus turns up. Haven't heard a peep.

I'm getting a bit less cheery now. I've just read on G+ about someone ordering via GP on 15 July, and already has a shipping number. Also clear quotes from gp help desk operators stating new orders are taking priority over pre-orders! This is getting mental ... If true.

That is ****ed up if true! Feel sorry for everyone without theirs yet.

Don't be too despondent though if you don't get a confirmation email that it's been sent, because I didn't get one except the initial order email on the 29th.

Thanks i'm going to ask why people who ordered the 8GB are getting shipped before the 16GB models and why people ordering from retail are getting them shipped before ordering directly.

Hey been reading this thread for a bit and thought I'd chip in with my current status with this order.

I live in the UK (North West) and ordered the 16GB model on the 30th. Today I noticed my available balance is 210 less than my current balance so not sure if this is google checking I've still got the money to pay or what :S no confirmations of shipping at all yet.. Hopefully should get something tomorrow and have the tablet in time for the weekend!

Google Wallet was showing nothing except that I ordered a nexus much like the first email I got.

I never checked my credit card, because, well I never do lol but figured they'd charge me when I get the despatch email, but my theory went out the window!

Yup, that's me too. Only 27th and 8gb.

The fact that people have... oh I give up now. Suffice to say I feel your pain brothers and sisters. We'll have them soon enough.

Yeah.. this is the stage I'm at. It's on the way at least and I've got Saturday free to get to grips with having a tablet (never owned one before!) and the differences between it and my phone. Probably best as I don't have much time to play with any new gadgets till the weekend.

If it came tomorrow I'd probably make the time, but that's besides the point.

My 210 payment has dropped off my credit card after being 'held' for 8 days! so I quickly removed card details from google wallet and ordered elsewhere as I was sick of waiting and they ignored my emails.

If the one from google does turn up I recon I will ebay it as there is a shortage by the look of it!

I think it could be true depending on retailer.

I ordered a 16gb from dixons today and its been sent for delivery tomorrow.

I have a friend who pre-ordered 4 days ago from dixons and he is still waiting?

I bet google is the same, if so it is abysmal service!

Saw this and decided to check mine... and I've FINALLY gotten my confirmation for the shipping!

Hit my gmail about 40 minutes ago so does seem like they're working on the next wave of shipments at the moment.

it appears to be true, I've seen people on XDA who ordered as late as the 14th get their confirmation for delivery email, I ordered on the 3rd and have NOTHING!

It also appears google have removed all contact info from play store! They really have ****ed this up, I am now actually very mad, I feel like cancelling the thing and buying an ipad, but I can't they wont let me as its too late! At least Apple have amazing customer services!

Gits!

I have to own up to being a bit of an Apple-head until this purchase, and that statement is very true. I;ve had some magsafe issues and also a macbook problem - it was sorted in 12 hours!

I really wanted the N7 to be the device that broke my Apple-love (before my Apple-love breaks me - I cant afford to keep buying their hardware!). It still might, but Google are making that less likely right now.

I'm still holding all my toys in the pram at the moment though, even if my knuckles are getting increasingly white, and my face red .... it will come eventually I'm sure.

I can think of a stronger word than gits!

Did you read I ordered with dixons 5am this morning for delivery tomorrow!

God only knows what's happening with my google order I tried to cancel. If they send it you can have it for 250!

They actually have done that! Shocking. If they had released a statement, if they had replied to emails, if we knew anything at all about what was happening then they wouldn't have needed to remove the details. As of about 20 minutes ago I'm annoyed.

I actually had a go on my mates "New" Ipad and I thought, actually I DO see what all the fuss is about, is was amazing. But I do prefer googles UI and services and I hate their corporate ways but I did feel a little isheep in me today haha! Still I do think an Ipad is way over priced.

My best mate had 2 dead pixels on his 6 month old ipad he took it back and they could give him a brand new one fast enough!

Apple are fantastic for replacements if you take them into a apple store.

Wonder if google will ever open stores?

I've seen quite a few people order theirs today and will be getting it tomorrow, but I have also seen people who have also ordered from Dixons last week not have their order processed! Its all very odd!

As I said I tried to cancel and take the risk of a new pre order with someone else and to save on the 10 p&p but they just wouldn't do it, but understood my frustration! Well I'm glad you understand, just ****ing sort it out! Sorry for my naughty words

Had my confirmation this evening, for my 16gb ordered on the 28th.
Can't track it with TNT even though I have a number.
Haven't been charged yet.
BTW if you entered the payment details on the play store, they are taken for payment when shipped, removing them does nothing but make future purchases harder.

I thought the 8gb were being shipped about a week before the 16gb anyway, and have heard that there is a delay for all new orders of around 1-2 weeks, which is very weird seeming you can get them on a lot of websites now.
