    Same what hotels usually do when you check-in. Reserve the money from the cc and only charge when you checkout .. Only annoying is, if a company cancels an order for example but doesn't cancel the payment - it can take up to 7-10 working days for the bank to release the lock as "unclaimed".

    Very annoying ..

    Like most I started trying prior to the 11am EST start time that was released. So this is 10:57 AM.

    Oh well, at least it looks like they are crediting shipping. I would obviously prefer to have it sooner than later, but I'm not really shocked. My Nexus One is still going strong (purchased 1/21/10), getting pure android is worth the wait.

    They *should* be fulfilling orders based on order time and stock allocated per distribution center. So far we've seen tracking from TX and KY ... any other locations?

    I am in Texas but have no shipping information yet. I am hoping it ships in the middle of the night from the Texas location so I get a few hours after I wake up :D

    Despite the "We're sorry" email, my shipping date is still listed as the 15th. Seems hard to believe that they would be this dis-organized.

    At the same time, it's great that there is this much demand. The N1 was always considered a failure (from a sales point of view). If the N4 can really show that this is a viable way for phone sales in the US then it chips away at the strangle hold that the cell phone providers have on customers and multi-year contracts.

    I don't know if we can say for sure if there is that much demand or just limited supply.

    Very true, at this time I'm hoping that this will turn out to be a very successful business model so we get an N5, and 6 down the road.

    My guess is the status of the orders is supposedly updated automagically when the data is received from fulfillment. The same reason that no one is seeing tracking info is most likely why status in Wallet isn't being updated.

    I bought an N1 and while it was a large investment compared to the carrier subsidized phones, I loved that sucker. I didn't even root it for 6 months and never flashed it with custom firmware. I replaced it with a SGS2 and I couldn't root and flash it fast enough after a pair of questionable AT&T updates.

    Still no update on my order here. When I called support they said I should have gotten something last night or this morning. Kinda bummed.

    I decided instead of cancelling I would call support and see what they had to say. They said that they don't see my order on backorder, which is weird since I have a backorder email, and to call back at 3pm EST for better information. I feel like a yo-yo.

    I'm not angry about this, I just hate waiting. I'm very impatient when it comes to new technology. Well, waiting for movies to be released too, oh and sitting at work and traffic, also I can be impatient standing in lines. I might just be an impatient person.

    There are rumblings of people who ordered on the 27th getting emails recently that their orders are shipping! So hopefully LG and Google meet these expectations sooner rather then later.

    I'm researching avenues to go down towards ordering myself another one. I just can't get past the 9-10 week wait time.
