I'm planning to buy two Google Nexus S phones as an anniversary gift. I'm ordering from outside of USA. I intend to order it right when it's available on the 17th Dec at 8am.
The timing is tight 'cos my partner is travelling and will be travelling outside of the States on Sunday night 19th Dec. I would like to get the phone delivered to him before Sunday.
If I order the phone online with express delivery, can I expect to get it delivered to his address in San Francisco by Saturday? I know that express delivery packages are expected to be delivered in 2 business days but I'm not sure if I order it on Thursday 17th Dec, would the second business day be on Friday 18th Dec or the following Monday 21st Dec. If it's going to be Monday, I'd ask him to just pop down to a store and get it himself (to heck with the surprise).
The second-generation Nexus smart phone is loaded with great features and boasts Android 2.3 (Gingerbread), the newest version of Android. Features include built-in mobile hotspot capability, improved voice action, better navigation and popular Google features like Gmail. Its sleek 4" WVGA contour display offers maximized visibility. The 5.0MP digital camera lets you snap great photos to share. Requires a $30/month Web access fee with all Even More voice plans. Questions? Call our Nexus S Help Line at 1-866-813-2021. Find your Nexus Sat Best Buy® Available with a 2-year contractat select locations. Available without a contractat all Best Buy stores.
The second question is, I know that at the storefronts, each person is limited to 2 units. Am I able to order 2 units online as well?

I hate to be the bearer of bad news, but good luck with that one there, Wong
Heres my story...
I ordered my Nexus Thursday morning, almost 3 days later and they send me an email saying 'its been backordered and you wont get it by christmas'................then I check the product page and lo and behold, they are still listing it as in stock and GUARANTEED CHRISTMAS DELIVERY.....what the blazes is this!?
When I ordered my Nexus One from the Google store, I ordered it at 4pm with engraving, and had it in my hot little hands by 1pm the following day, engraving and all....meanwhile it takes bestbuy 3 days to let me know the products been backordered, despite the fact people who ordered AFTER me are getting 'bumped up to saturday delivery', and it still lists as in stock with guaranteed christmas delivery on their site, etc. etc. etc.
There is no other word for this other than ridiculous.......
