UPDATE: Don't give up on a Nexus 4. Here is the official message from the Google Play Store: "Google Play is currently experiencing very high traffic. Nexus 4 is not sold out and will still be available for purchase. Please try again shortly. Thank you for your patience."
This afternoon marked the moment thousands of you have been waiting for, and it included a few unwelcome surprises.
Google has begun sending out emails to Nexus 4 customers who were lucky enough to place an order before the device sold out. According to Engadget, some Nexus 4 buyers have been told their device will ship sometime this week, and Google will provide tracking details once it's on its way. Hopefully this means Google is close to re-opening orders for the sold out device. Nexus 4 hopefuls should continue to follow or sign up for the whohas.it Google Nexus 4 tracker to be notified as soon as it's back in stock!

Toys R Us has been reporting items, such as the Wii U, rapidly in and out of stock over the last few days. There has also been a discrepancy between the mobile site and full site. whohas.it members have reported being able to buy a Wii U bundle from the mobile site and not the full site, and vice versa. We urge everyone who is following the Wii U, and other items, to check both the Toys R Us mobile site and full site after receiving an alert.
We are continuing to send out alerts on Toys R Us products in the interest of maximizing users' chances of finding the items they're looking for. If you receive multiple alerts, this is because Toys R Us has changed the status of an item multiple times in a short period. Items are also going in and out of stock quickly, so you must act fast, and pay close attention to the Toys R Us product page. Some of the product pages contain conflicting messages such as "temporarily out of stock" even though the item is actually available for online purchase. We will be closely monitoring this situation throughout the holidays.
Major retailers such as Best Buy, Walmart and Target have very limited supplies of the Nintendo Wii console. Most retailers have stopped accepting online orders, and third party sellers are price gouging desperate holiday shoppers via online auctions sites such as eBay. In short, the Wii U is one of most sought-after items this holiday season.
Scott Moffitt, executive vice president of marketing at Nintendo of America, spoke to Forbes about the Wii U launch at the Nintendo World store in New York City, and the Wii U shortage.
