Cannot View /Buy Hardware @ Google Play
« on: December 16, 2012, 12:01:22 PM »
I think I mentioned this a while back but didn't see the thread. I cannot link to any hardware at the Play Store. If I search Google for a Nexus 10 and use a link it takes me to the  Play Store homepage. If I search the store for a nexus 10 , I never see it as an item for sale. Same for phones, tablets etc. I have never seen anything other than apps, books, music etc for sale. It happens with every browser I try as well.
It is frustrating because I couldn't view the recent launch day schwag and I have wanted to possibly do a little  xmas shopping. I know I can use a PC but that defeats the purpose.
I still have this weird problem with ads as well. Links take me to an error page and all Google ads in Chrome don't load. Not the worst thing in the world but still would like to figure out the problem. I had ad away installed for a while and got rid of it but that wasn't the issue.
I have a feeling that these issues are connected in some way. I just can't seem to find a solution.
I feel like I'm on an island with this one. Any ideas?

When you open the Play Store from a browser you should see "Shop" below the Play Store logo, tap it and a drop down will appear and devices will be at the bottom...

Thanks JayJ.
Is there a way to view devices from the play store app? That's where links usually direct me.

That is what I get when I try a Google play link from Chrome.

The Google Play App does not show devices but if you open the Play Store link Here in Chrome or a web browser you will have the option for devices. I am not sure why Google has designed the Play App like this, but it is. BTW, I have verified that I can see devices on my Nexus 7 at the above link.

Out of currosity and it may be a stupid question, but do you have a Google account shown in accounts and does your personal apps show up in Google Play?

What do you make of the errors when trying to link to an ad? The ads I am referring to are the first couple links that come up in a Google search.

I had this same problem a while back and I can't remember how I fixed it cause I did. Did you try requesting the desktop site? Try force closing the Google play store before you enter the website? Try googleing "nexus 10 product page" and hold down the link and open in new window?

I figured it out! Under your apps go to Google chrome and clear the defaults. Then when ever you go to open their device pages it ask if you want to open it in the chrome or the play store app. Just click chrome but don't set as your default.
