Little tip for those who attempt the next order window
This may or may not work, no guarantee. It did for me...
On original sale date, I frantically tried placing the order with reappearing various error messages. Couldn't get a hold of one.
Then I remember reading in this forum how someone managed to place an order for it using their phone, logged into the play store.
I thought it was either BS or sheer luck, considering the failed effort of others trying to order this phone on snappy desktops.
Today started a a deja-vu. I wasted the first 4 minutes of my time trying to order this thing through my desktop with no luck. I then remembered what I had read in the forum before, and simultaneously started trying to place the order with my 2 year old Droid X (that has seen better and snappier days...)
First attempt on the phone goes through smoothly, even while having to manually input my billing address, all through my phone.
All other other consecutive attempts on my desktop failed, as I was trying to place an additional order for a friend.
Not sure if the mobile version of the Play store (not the app), runs on different servers, or has a separate order input database. Whatever it is, it seemed to have worked for me. I don't think many people have even considered ordering the Nexus 4 through their phone, so perhaps the load on google was not as heavy via that interface.
Those of you who have failed ordering the Nexus 4 during the last 2 attempts, may want to consider this information and use it at your discretion.
