Google Store servers crashed as Nexus 4 sold out within minutes

news article released on:

I think it was a disaster, i tried all night put alarm on for it, even got to check out option, no luck! that made change my mind will try the Nexus 7 3G, i barely talk on the phone and use google voice for text, maybe couple calls through grooveip.
I learned not to expect to get Nexus on release day. Waiting couple weeks never sounded better.
