JD, did they give you a tracking number right off the bat? I got an email that mine has been shipped around 530 pm but no tracking. I then received another email , around 730 pm, saying that it would be another week or two. I also checked Google Wallet and it says it's been shipped but no tracking number as well.

Yup tracking number was in the email.

In case you haven't seen, https://support.google.com/googlepla...1735&ctx=topic, all 16GB orders in Canada are now on hold for 1-2 weeks.

Of course, Google is prioritizing their American customers first and upgrading them to overnight shipping too. Yet again Canada gets the short end of the stick

We get the shaft with a lot of american things, add this to the list.

I haven't made up my mind if I'll cancel with google and try to find retail or just wait the week or two. Guess I have until they charge me to decide eh?

I ordered the 8 gb and hoping that I will get the tracking number this morning, no joy. If I don't get it today I will just cancel it, this is total BS.

Just checked my card, no charges yet so I am guessing it hasn't shipped yet. I sent them an email to just cancel it if it hasn't left the building yet.

There shouldn't be as long as you were charged GST and PST in your order. Seeing as Google has residency up in Canada, they have to charge it.

I might contact google tommorow to see about getting it delivered to my work place. I only want our front end to sign the package at most, no exchange of money is what I am after. Plus ups wont have to make a 2nd-3rd attempt to give my my nexus.

With UPS, -afair- you can change the delivery address after the first delivery attempt or have it held at the depot.
