No Nexus 4 Pre-Order System

It is times like this when the pre-order system from Apple has its benefits. When the iPhone 4s was released in October 2011 and the iPhone 5 was released in September 2012, Apple lovers had the ability to pre-order the phone to make sure they got one.

This prevented the need to wait outside for hours on end, and also let Apple know just how many people wanted the new product.

Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 Also Released

Along with the Nexus 4, Google’s new tablets, the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 were released today. Both have now sold out in the Google Play store since there were a limited number available across the world. However, like the Nexus 4, more will be on their way shortly.

The new Nexus series of smartphones and tablets had customers staying up all night, and pressing F5 on the Google Play store hoping to get one of the devices. The prices are extremely low for the devices, which is one of the reasons for the hype. However, the devices have sold out and left many customers angry and frustrated at Google’s apparent inability to create a reliable shopping cart system. Want to read more?
