    The real question is, will be the Google servers be able to withstand the run on it? I can see this thing go down for a while......
    Definitely. Between Google I/O Conference tickets going on sale, as well as the Nexus 7, I've never seen one of their order pages go down due to heavy traffic.

    Maybe not, is not like Google servers have to deal with a lot of traffic every millisecond of every day
    Well yeah, but that's most likely a completely different system and has nothing to do with the rest of Google, I doubt there's a connection. I'm just saying, it wouldn't be the first time such thing happens to a big company *cough*.

    Yes. It seems like the most commonly accepted thought is that it will be on sale at 12am PST.

    Which would also be the most logical, considering Google's HQ is in the Pacific time zone.

    If Google can't ramp up their store servers to handle heavy traffic who can? They only serve gazillions bazillions quadrillions search requests every day (I exaggerate to clarify)

    Perfect. I just wish someone could say "I talked to Google and it's open at 12 and they said they have enough. Don't worry" but no one can say that can they?

    Nope. Only the German time is confirmed so far, everything else remains in the dark.

    I wish it was at midnight, that'd just be a few minutes left. Sleeping will be a hell tonight. I'm a night person and since I have some off time right now I don't usually go sleep before 4-5am, and then it's supposed to be released at 9am. ARGHHHH!
    But I also feel pity for you Australians, if it really is released so late over there. I still hope they'll do overnight shipping or something for you guys!

    If its 9am Germany release time it is about 4pm on West Coast and between 6-7Pm on the east so not too bad, express would be nice but doubtful. It could be why our 16gb model is about 70 odd dollars more

    I wish it was more expensive because of that! But apparently they say that over here there will be another 10 Euro for shipping. I mean honestly, that's just a rip off haha.

    You would think this would be life or death situation with knowing the actual time. They aren't going to sell out...relax. It will be out to buy anywhere from 12am till about 5am tomorrow morning, and ship out tomorrow if ordered early enough. Relax...

    Why does everyone think the nexus 4 will be popular enough to go out of stock as fast as the iphone 5?
    That's the real question

    Wait I'm in Puerto Rico we don't have daylight savings here. Right now is 7:02. Does that mean that the time is 6:02 Eastern right?

    Does that mean that I'll have to stay until 2:00 or until 4:00?

    Just called Google support and he said he was not sure but leaks suggest a 12:01 PST release. He told me to keep refreshing the page, oh how refreshing!

    He probably feels like his ear keeps hitting refresh if people are calling Google support about a phone release time...

    That's is true but my wait time was about 10 seconds so that either means people are asking short question, release time, or not calling?
