Some preorders may not be filled?
« on: July 17, 2012, 10:16:32 AM »
Just got done reading this World News Resource report and according to the the preorder sales where so over whelming that theres a strong chance that Google will not be able to ship preorders that have not been filled until August. I for one hope I either read this wrong or that WNR is totally wrong, since I have yet to receive any shipping information from GP. If this is the case I will be highly upset that they kept my money on the cancelled order I had that they claimed on the 12th could not be refunded because the shipper had my order already and it was to late to stop it.

 From World News Resource:

Quote
Reports suggest that Nexus 7 preorders have already exhausted Google’s first two shipments from its core suppliers, with numerous third-party vendors having also listed the tablet as being temporarily out of stock. Unfortunately, rumor has it that Google’s next wave of Nexus 7 tablets isn’t due to arrive until August, meaning that those buyers who haven’t already received their orders or tracking numbers may be waiting at least another two weeks.]


 I am just going to bank on this being sensationalism and that preorders will be shipped as promised and in hand by Friday.

That would be very bad press, and would show a lack of planning. Although, it could create the perception that the Nexus was in short supply and therefore to be coveted.

Google actually announced today that all pre-orders that had been ordered by Friday the 13th have been shipped as of today (although they could still be in transit) so I wouldn't put any credence to this 'news' report.  Besides, what the heck is 'worldnewsresource'?  Looks like some hobbyists personal site, not a legit news site.

Google has some serious logistics and organizational issues. If my preorders shipped I have yet to can any notifications, tracking numbers or charges. Hope your right though.

I agree, this site could be riding the inertia of Google's bad step for some page views, so I wouldn't put much credibility in it.  Besides these folks are in Krakow, Poland, so how would they get this tidbit of info before any major tech news organizations or bloggers in the US?

I call to verify whether they all shipped today. After 1 and a half hour wait I was told it might be for 5 more days before I would get a notification and that they could not promise me it would ship this week. after getting a supervisor I was told I could cancel both my orders. So I went online check with staples and found out they have them in stock. I'm writing this from my new nexus 7 that I just picked up minutes ago.

Dang... so you saved the $14 on shipping.  Nice!  Did they say what the hold-up was though?

No. They are regurgitating some BS they are told to say. I am not sure how all this will work out and maybe all the units do go out and get into everybody's hands on time, but what I will not stand for is a company giving me the round about. They have changed their story with me to many times and most of it is bull. Like telling me on the 12th they couldn't cancel my order because it is in the shippers hands, then telling me today, after promising me it would ship by the Monday, that it might be 4 to 5 days before I get a tracking number. I would have been fine if they just gave me solid information about what I can honestly  expect, but to give me a run around will get me to act every time.

You got a completely different story from Google today than I did.  I was told all pre orders should be delivered by Friday.  I hate it when a company won't shoot straight with their customers. Sadly, I'm at least 2 hours away from any possible retailer that might have one in stock.

I'm glad I went ahead and cancel my order and grabbed one from staples.

Completely different thread. This is related to Google  inability to and deception on fulfilling their pre order promise and those effected by it.
