    We have good news and bad news for a few folks who pre-ordered the Google Nexus 6P. Although the folks affected by this news have probably already received an email warning regarding this, we are sharing it just in case they haven't seen it yet. According to multiple reports, some of the pre-orders for the Nexus 6P have been delayed until early to mid-November. To make amends, Google is offering those folks a $25 refund/credit.

    Although it's not the same thing as having that shiny new Nexus 6P in your hands, perhaps an extra $25 bucks in your pocket can assuage you while you wait a bit longer. Here's a copy/quote of the email sent out by Google,

    Keep in mind that this does not apply to all versions of the device, only to a few configurations. If you haven't received an email from Google then you are probably fine. Let's cross our fingers that Google simply mis-evaluated the relative popularity of this new device, which would mean it is selling faster than they had hoped!

    Here's our dedicated Nexus 6P section for further discussion: Nexus 6P by Huawei | Android Forum at DroidForums.net

    So far, in the 6P section, we've had no reports of any of our DF members that pre-ordered the device getting these emails. We're all obviously hoping that none of us sees the email, except in your quote above.

    We actually have a couple of members who's tracking information says they should expect to receive their 6P's today, so that dedicated section may really be hopping this evening!

    I have yet to get past "Pending". Lol. This is killing me! Maybe it's because I have the 128GB Frost. I'm making a script for the phone, and I don't even have a way to test it yet. Lol

    My order from Huawei, placed on October 3rd, for a 64GB Aluminum version just shipped today according to the email I got at lunch time.
