    Grats. :) All I get is "An error occurred while processing your purchase. Please try again later."...

    I really wanted to have this in hand this week though... not liking the 3-5 business day wait from the play store. :(

    I got errors a couple times just trying to add to the cart that I didn't even stop to see if there were options. Even if there was, the receipt says it won't even ship for 3-5 days. The default shipping was 2-day.

    Wife is on here way back to the store that told her they would be delivered by FedEx around noon. She knows the manager. Had no luck getting through the play store.

    It's good to know that people never really grow up......reading this thread is worse than listening to my 8 yr old talk about how many days it is until Christmas but I chuckle when I realize that these are ADULTS talking about this stuff.

    I'm sure the N10 is great and all, but I like how people get so obsessed about things that they literally are worried about the HOURS that it might take till it gets into their hands, and whether they should take the day off work in order to drive around to every WalMart within 100 miles hoping to snag one.

    From the reviews I read it seems this is a good tablet, maybe not a great tablet, at a good price but again not a great price like the N7 is vs it's competition.

    If this thing was priced at $299 for 16gb and $349 for 32, I'd share your excitement (although I still need to work so I can't join you out on the road driving past every WalMart :)


    Also people act SURPRISED that the WalMart employee isn't fully up to speed on all the ins and outs of the Nexus 10.......REALLY, WHY DOES THIS SURPRISE YOU?

    Doesn't look like Walmart is going to happen. Very bad decision to associate with that store! At least the one store went and looked in the back. Guess I'll have to sit around and play with my Lego's! :D

    Finally got ahold of the walmart electronics folks. They have ZERO Nexus 10s. Screw it. I ordered from Google. 16gb N10 is enroute.

    Yeah, seems like the whole "Wall Mart will have them" was incorrect. I missed getting the 32gb this morning before it sold out with all the web site problems. Guess I'll just have to hope some stores get one. :(

    Yeah same here. I finally broke down and ordered from Google. I wanted to be sure I had a new toy to play with when I'm off work for 4 days for the Thanksgiving holiday. I hope I don't regret ordering from Google. The last time I got Scroogled. At least the shipping was only $14.

    As far as I can tell, no brick & mortar stores have it yet. :mad: (I haven't read one report of anyone actually buying one physically in a store).

    The only thing walmart has is a sign.

    I went to three different Wal-Marts in Central Illinois and found none. I ordered one on the Play Store and will wait patiently. The store actually double ordered mine and I had to go back in and cancel one of them....lucky for me the money showed back up in the account under a couple hours or the wife would be burying me before it gets here.

    I believe everyone thinks Walmart will have them because of the picture of store shelf that had the name and price on it. I haven't seen any other info. The last Walmart my wife went to actually said... even if we got them today they would probably remain in the back for at least a week! We don't stock shelves that fast.

    I went into Staples on my way home and found a guy that actually knew what I was talking about when I said Nexus 10. He seemed to think they were suppose to get them but said their truck doesn't show up until Saturday. He was waiting for one as well.

    I'm personally waiting on the 32GB no matter how long it takes. I skipped the Nexus 7 because I had a feeling they would make something bigger.

    It was Google who first said Walmart would have the Nexus 7 32gb.




    I think I'll be happy with the 16gb.

    +1 to this... this is really what I'm looking for as well. I just can't stand the ambiguity.. it's really irritating. :)
