How serious are google about the product shipping in "3-4 weeks"? I haven't ordered a google device before, could a "Oh, there still isn't any stock yet" scenario happen? I just ordered yesterday and I'm already getting impatient :razz:
I have confidence that they will fulfill the product when they say they will.
They must know how many units come out of a factory each week.
So it's not that hard. Though it would be nice if they give you a counter (eg. you are position 25,123) that updates weekly.

You can always cancel order if you don't want it the next week cause its backorder now

Seems out of stock for me... where do you see it in stock?
Just refresh. Different model/colours come in and out of stock seemingly randomly.
I'm guessing Google has it set up so that a 1000 units become "available" on a timer or something like that.

That's why I figured I would just "buy now think later"! :) It still shows in-stock for me.

Depends on you. Since your N2 doesn't have LTE, it would definitely be a plus. I'm switching over from N2 i317 to N5.

Question about Spigen screen protector.

What is the difference between Spigen screen protector being sold at Amazon/Ebay vs. one from their official website www.spigen.com?

To me I don't think they are the same type of film. I am guessing one from amazon/ebay is just like those cheap thin plastic sheet alike protector?

As for the clarity,, these are Crystal where as one from website is Ultra Crytal.

I personally have one from the official website for my tablets & my older phone Galaxy Nexus to refer to.



Anyone know?

Shows in stock for me. Did you order 2? "limit reached" is not the same as out of stock

Damn I ordered a 32gb White yesterday because that's all that was available, but after finding out that the side of the phone is glossy and the back is not the same soft-touch material, I'm starting to regret my decision...
I might go ahead and order a black one but I don't want to wait 3-4 weeks for my phone :(

If you gonna use a case, they both looks the same since the white also have a black front.

Maybe you can find someone locally to trade or sell the white one for small profit and just wait.
