    Hi Twayne. :hello:

    I haven't seen any info on docks yet. I would expect Google or Samsung to have one soon.

    You would expect that, but given their track record with the GNex accessories I'm not hopeful!

    Ahhhhh!! What to do? I work for a company (that I won't name just incase) that sells limited range of electricals. We stock the Nexus 7 but no word on whether we'll have the Nexus 10 any time soon. From yesterday we have reduced the price of the Galaxy Note 10.1 down to

    Do you know for sure Walmart will have it Tuesday? I went to 2 Saturday and I don't think the people I talked to even knew what a Nexus 10 was. Although I think they were just part-time people and probably not in the loop.

    I have no faith in Walmart to put them out on time even if they have them. I live within 20 minutes of four and all of them are unreliable. I plan to stop by Staples just to check tomorrow. They sell the Nexus 7 so I'm hoping they will also have the 10.

    And the reason I have no faith in them is because at one time my wife was a Microsoft Xbox rep for our area. They never managed to get any of the new games or displays setup on time. She always ended up having to do their jobs and all but threaten to get the displays put up.

    Well Walmart might prove me wrong this time. My wife went into the store close to where she works and.... they do have them in stock and will be available tomorrow! I just might have to take a day off of work!

    I hope the stores in my town are the same. I'll be in one by 8:30am.

    Well as they work at Walmart, I dont expect much foresight out of any of them. I guess I'll find out in a few hours.

    According to press releases, the N10 will be available online from Google or at Walmart at release. That's it. Hope it's wrong.

    FYI. Just talked to the Google Play Store (855-836-3987). He asked me what city I was from (Fresno, CA) they said the Nexus 10 would be available for purchase at 9 am Pacific Time today.

    I hope you expressed your "disappointment" at the lack of communication for all of us

    Any word on the smart cover or accessories? I don't even know if they have screen protectors for the N10 yet. :confused:

    I thought for sure they would be selling the smart cover today. I was at least going to buy one of those. I'm still debating waiting on Walmart or not for the N10.

    I think I'm going to wait for Amazon to get it. They often have good "bundle" deals with accessories & in addition I get free shipping from them. ;)

    I guess I should have waited. I tried ordering this morning and got numerous errors and lock ups of the play store. Even after waiting a very long time after confirming my order I never received any confirmation that an order had been processed. I had an appointment and to my surprise waiting in my inbox on my return was not 1 but 2 order confirmation emails from google for a Nexus 10! I tried to cancel one and nope - if 1 hour has passed since the order has been placed there is no way to cancel an order I was told when I phoned in to explain what had happened. I was told the only way was to wait for the 2 parcels and refuse to sign for one and then it would be returned and 15 days after it made its way back to google I would get a refund. The customer service rep even suggested I might want to keep the 2nd one to give as Christmas present! That is is good selling but not good customer service.

    I have ordered hundreds of items online and never had this type of order processing problem. I hope the tablet experience is better than the ordering experience and as it is I am still excited to give the thing a go. I don't anticipate being a big app user so the limited tablet optimized choices is not a big deal. As long as Chrome and the google apps work well I will be satisfied and from what I have read they are well done.

    Jeff

    You aren't the only one. I saw many posts from people who had trouble ordering and then got charged for 2 or 3. Google just can't seem to have a smooth launch.
