I read a comment that it would be released at 11 a.m. my time. At 10, I started refreshing every 5 minutes or so. When it finally was available, it took about 6-7 tries. At one point I wasn't sure if I had missed it or bought two phones, but when I called the bank for my account info and checked my Google Wallet, 1 phone was purchased. I tried IE and Chrome, it seemed to work better on Chrome.

You're purchasing it the wrong way. In my Steve jobs voice.

JUST KEEP TRYING! As time went on, it gave me more "add to cart" options and then I finally got the payment through. Got myself a 16GB. Can't wait!

I used only Chrome. This idea about using different browsers is only speculation. It doesn't make sense, technically. I believe that Google is being careful to verify the orders with stocked phones and periodically allows more orders when all is accounted for. Thereby, the website seems "wonky", but they will probably avoid having unfulfilled orders.

keep trying... took me an 1 hour and i was successful placing an order for a 16GB model... now, waiting for the shipping info. now the difficult part will be to decide which 2 phones to keep: SGS3/Note2/Nxs4.

For me you should stay with Note 2 + Nexus 4 ;-) I'll be (if I succeed to take one) Note + Nexus 4 ;D

if call quality, in-call volume and fluidity on the Nexus 4 is as good as the Note 2 or SGS3, then i'll likely keep the Note2 and N4. for my ears, the in-call volumne on the past 2 Nexus devices was much too low. still haven't received any shipping info, so it's possible i may not get an N4. :)

If you log into your account and look at your recent orders (like you would with your app downloads/purchases), it should show you your anticipated ship date. For example, it told me the 15th, so I wouldn't expect shipping information until Thursday or early Friday.

if its all american devices, thats not a hard choice, N4 and N2. the american SGS3 isnt in the same ball field.
