Google has clarified that there will be no pre-orders for Nexus 4 smartphone or Nexus 10 tablet and both these devices will directly go on sale starting November 13. This seems to be applicable to all the countries, where the new Nexus devices are going on sale the same day.
The company PR representative told Android Police that the “notify me” on Google Play listings will change to “available for order” on November 13. Google will start shipping on the same date, so at least some of you will be able to get hold of the devices same day.
Here is the complete statement from Google PR:
AndroidPolice: Is Google going to start shipping on the 13th or open pre-orders? In other words, when will the first customers be able to hold the new Nexuses in their paws?
Google PR Rep: They’ll start shipping on that date.
AndroidPolice:Alright, thanks. Do you know when the pre-orders will start then?
Google PR Rep: Right now, it’s “Notify me” and on 11/13 it will switch to available for order.
Earlier, Google had announced both the devices along with a 3G version of Nexus 7. Nexus 4 has got rave reviews and is being dubbed as a steal for $299 and $349.
