No hope for Nexus 4 in Canada

Here I am, up at 6 am, and there is no Nexus 4.  :(   I just read that the earlier world sold out within seconds.  What's to stop them shopping here?  Would the Canadian store have a shipping restriction?  Boo hoo.

Update:  Canada hasn't even opened!  Of course, it's just 2 guys in a garage, drinking beer.  The headlines shall blare:  "It's a Google-Quake!  Brittle House Collapsed to Rubble"

Update2:
 It appears that sometime during the night, Bob and Doug did open the store for a couple of minutes.  No notifications though, so they broke their promise to me.  :(

Did you get a Nexus 4 when they finally posted near lunch? Did you get 2? My purchase failed at checkout today! Argh.

All adding to the hype. Now I'm stuck with my Nexus S they aren't planning on updating anymore!

I wanted 2 for Christmas. I never saw the opening. Sucks for you to get so close!

Well, they don't have a patent on white yet...

Wow, any rectangle with any corner radius.

They pulled the phoney "Notify Me" thing. I still hit them a couple of times a day, just to show my irritation. :(

I say we run off to the patent office and put one in for a rectangle with chamfered corners!
