By now there would be a lot of folks out there who have spent days and nights at end refreshing the Nexus 4 or Nexus 10 buy page on the Google Play store, hoping that the dreaded Out Of Stock message turns to In Stock. Sadly, despite knowing the kind of hype and demand a new Nexus device is likely to create, Google for one, does not seem to have had a tight handle on the supply chain.
The fact is that the actual issue is not necessarily about the supply, the lack of which is understandable given the pricing Google has set on its Play Store for devices as well endowed as the current crop of Nexii. The issue arises from the fact that anxious buyers are completely in the dark about when their objects of desire are going to turn available, for them to splurge their well earned, or in a lot of cases well saved money on. The F5 button on a keyboard is meant to refresh web pages, true, but not just one web page umpteen number of times a day, just because the user is in the dark.
Here’s some bad news for keyboard manufacturers who nay have been cashing in on damaged F5 keys over the past couple of weeks. There is a new app on the Google Play Store, thanks to developer CLAUDIO MEZZASALMA, called the Nexus Checker, which allows a user to check the availability of Nexus devices on the Google Play Store, right from the convenience of his/her Android screen.
The best part of the app is that it lets you check availability country wise, as well as by device. So if you are in a space where you just can’t seem to find availability in your local Play Store, but have connections in other markets which have acces to device purchase via Google Play, the Nexus Checker app is a boon for you. As you can see from the screenshots above, you can view worldwide availability by device, as well as country-level availability for the same device.
Once you have that information, it is just a matter if tapping into the right contacts and getting your Nexus through them. Cool, isn’t it? The app is available for free at the Google Play Store, and if you are a Nexus enthusiast whose F5 key is one press away from sinking into the keyboard, hit the download button to get the Nexus Checker app, and track availability for your preferred Nexus device right from your Android device.[button link=”https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=it.lorthirk.NexusChecker” icon=”arrow” style=””]Download Nexus Checker[/button]
