Thats 2 days from when you get the shipping notification. Though mine arrived the next day.

But it does look pretty stupid when they won't ship for 4-5 weeks and still want to charge you for the privilege of 2 day delivery. A lot of companies wouldn't charge delivery at all for that length of wait. Especially when they've had your cash for that time.  listen to this

Just went to the store to order bumper pack   -  surprise it shows  "out of inventory check back soon" , Jeez this launch is definately  a complete and utter shambles. banging head against wall

They've had little/no stock since launch. I ordered mine with the phone on launch, it arrived yesterday even though the quoted shipping time was 3 - 5 days, some are still waiting from what i've read.

The N4s battery is very average.

I use mine for work, so lots of phonecalls, texts and emails throughout the day, and probally a couple of hours surfing and music in total when I get home, by which time it'll be needing a charge.

And google are obviously limiting purchases - just noticed (as I had the nexus 4 page loaded at work to check for stock availability) that, having ordered one last night, it now says "LIMIT REACHED" and "Thank you for your previous order. You have reached the limit for this item."

RE: Nexus 4 in Stock Today For £280! UPDATE

UPDATE: It has arrived woohoo!

Mrs. Scene has phoned me because a courier arrived with a "package from google" which he was handling very carefully! She's opened it and there was a Nexus 4 box in the jiffy bag. YES!!

So by 4-5 weeks delivery with £9.99 for two day delivery they really did mean in two days...

I can feel my cold getting worse - may have to go home soon... Smile
