    Usually I order the moment they go live on the site. However this time I thought I would wait about ten minutes or so before ordering, to avoid the initial avalanche of people logging in.

    Seems to have worked. Went to Google Play / Devices, found it listed as "in stock" placed my order, smooth as silk. No delays, no hiccups, fast and easy.

    Order placed
    Thank you. Your order has been placed, and you will receive an email shortly with the details of your purchase.

    Loads of Google News links say that it sold out in an hour. Wifey's phone has officially died. Come on Google.

    The 16's are already out of stock in the US store. Lasted less than 30 minutes!

    I wonder how much longer the 8's will last?

    [edit: 12:12pm eastern time; looks like both the 16's AND the 8's are gone now.]

    My transaction looked like it crashed after I hit the purchase button, however it looks like the transaction is pending in Google wallet with an order number so it looks like I may have gotten it to go through, we'll see.

    I got an error after I put in my address and credit card info....I have a pending transaction on my credit card.

    I have no confirmation number. I am in a depressed, limbo like state.

    Be patient, it's my understanding the system is just overloaded but not crashed completely. You may find your confirmation arriving in minutes to an hour or so. Not ideal, but not bad considering the rush of orders.

    Like I said before, it took about 1-2 hours for me to get my confirmation e-mail. Same with a friend of mine. so it shouldn't be too different with everyone else.

    Check Google wallet to see if the transaction is there.

    I haven't received an email yet, and won't be sure the transaction when through until that I guess, but GW lists all of your purchases and order numbers there.

    Just received my email while writing the post above. About 40 minutes from the time the transaction is listed in GW to getting the email.

    Looks like my 8GB went through, but I only know after checking the Google Wallet page. Hopefully it ships today! Wooo hooo!

    What a mess! My order got kicked out 3 times, however Google still managed to charge me 3 times!

    Well good news, was able to successfully cancel the other 2 orders, and now only the original 16Gig is showing in my wallet account pending...whewwww, what a day!

    When everyone checks their wallet, are they seeing Pending?

    Yes, you should see pending until it ships.

    The US site opened at 11:30am eastern time; I had my order completed by 11:36am. I got the order confirmation on the screen (which I printed) but so far - 2 hours later - no email.

    My credit card shows a "Pending" charge for the full amount.

    Play Store's "My Orders" page is attached as well as Google Wallet (click the "Info" link in play store status column).

    I am sure my order went through, but the waiting is worrisime...

    I would not be shocked to find out that the package requires signature at the door. So you might have to go through a cycle with whom ever (UPS/FEDEX) is delivering. Unless your driver will accept a note taped to the door that says "Please Deliver Package for X from Google - <signed>"

    Cool, didn't know about that one. Wallet shows only transactions with cost.

    Thanks for that tip! On that screen I was able to see the shipping estimate of November 15th!
    That's why I try to have all packages delivered to my job rather than my house. That and the fact that UPS is notorious for leaving products at the door without an answer.
