    I have to get up too early so no midnight runs for me. I will be stopping by in the morning on the way to work. I'll be surprised if they have them on the shelf yet.

    Well there's the news post on the main page that showed some already on shelves a couple days ago. System wouldnt allow cashiers to ring them up yet. So my hope is they're stocked but not able to ring up yet

    Ya, a friend of mine is calling all over town ... Walmart, Staples, etc. Nobody has even heard of the Nexus 10, much less have them on shelves. I guess some stores will, but it looks like it's gonna be a crapshoot.

    Sad thing is that at my local Walmart, even though they carry the Nexus 7, they still (as of a few days ago) don't have one out on display. If it hadn't been for this site, I'd would've had no idea that you could get one there.

    Imagine how well Nexus devices would do if Google made more than a half-ass attempt to sell them at retail.

    The first walmart had a spot for it in case, but nothing there and associate said they wouldnt have any for a couple weeks. The second walmart didnt have a space for it, and none in the case and seemed to have no idea what i was talking about.

    Meanwhile, Play Store still isnt selling them at 130 am. Cmon man.

    I called all over Columbus last night and couldn't find a store that even knew what I was talking about.

    I'm still waiting on the online site. Hitting refresh every 10 minutes or so.

    I checked with 3 Walmarts this morning. People at the first 2 had a blank deer-in-the-headlights expression on their face. They never heard of one of them whatchacallits. The girl at the 3rd at least checked into it and couldn't find any info on the store getting any but would check with the manager when they came in.

    I may order one online today but I'm very hesitant to do that. Past experience ordering from Google hasn't inspired me with confidence.

    Im afraid to wait... but may go by my Walmart again this afternoon and check before ordering online. I dont want to wait, pay sales tax or shipping, or deal with google if i need to exchange it for some reason.

    I am seriously so frustrated. ;)

    I'm in the same boat... went to two Walmarts this morning. The first barely knew what a "Nexus tablet" was... (the lady actually asked "do you mean the ipad? We sell those!) !!! #@$#$. The second didn't know that there would be a "10" but was happy to sell me a N7. /sigh

    Anyway... do I order online at noon or roll the dice that some stock will come in this week at local Walmarts? (Wondering if I should call at 12:30ish to see if they get them from their fedex shipments like the above post mentioned).

    I've never bought a physical item from the Play store, I wonder how easy it is to put in an order at noon and cancel it if we find any at local Walmarts at 12:30. Its obviously not going to ship within an hour or purchasing.

    I don't think the tablet is sell out like the phone.What would suck is to pay shipping twice
