    From the shopping cart page, you can chat to a live rep (whose name is 'Greg' and speaks terrible Engrish) to confirm your local store has stock. Then pre-order and pick up tomorrow.

    In a spectacular about-face, I've just bought a Nexus 4. Couldn't be bothered waiting for the Xperia Z, especially if it meant re-signing for 24 months with Telstra and paying additional handset fees.

    2-3 weeks to ship, no bumpers in stock though :)

    No orb. Trams are cool though.

    Yeah it did. I've read that they say that regardless, a lot of people get it earlier.

    Yes, my order was at 09:00:31 and it said 2-3 from the start

    Already called a couple of stores yesterday, none of them had stock

    Edit: Found a Harvey Store with stock, called and confirmed, ordered will hopefully pick up tonight if not tomorrow.

    Now to cancel the Google order once I get the phone :|

    Thanks for the responses.

    Would be great to get it a bit earlier so I don't feel bad about not waiting for the Xperia Z :p

    Scrap that. That prick was fucking useless and didn't tell me anything different from what the website told me, that being "Temporarily out of stock"

    Welp, just ordered mine from my local HN. Rang them and they said they only had 3 pre-orders, and was guaranteed I would have one in my hands tomorrow.

    Haha I meant I couldn't check to see if the orb was available because I wasn't infront of a PC.

    Silly mobile play store doesn't let me search devices.

    no sd slot, no LTE, res is good but not amazing + no amoled and the battery life is meant to be worse than the s3 from what I read?

    this is annoying as hell. seems like mine is the only HN store without stock...

    and i seem to be the only person to have gotten the "delayed by 14 days" bullshit".
