Jeff,
       I am assuming you purchased from Google Play Store, in that event, they place a temporary charge on your credit card to validate the card, which will drop off in a day or so if it does not ship. Checking your Google account online in the Play Store, will give you a better idea of the status of your order. Keep us updated on your status,  because I think once Google starts shipping, it won't be long until we see them in retail stores.

Yeah,
I have looked and nothing as of today. I sure hope I'm not making a mistake getting this for her. Been reading about so issue over at xda.

Not sure if there would be a point in rooting it for her, it's not like my phone after all, I would guess they are not full of krapware?

Screen lock ups, restarts, just have to look through the posts.
But I'm from the show-me state, since I ordered it, I'll just have to keep my fingers crossed.
Having an HTC Thunderbolt I've had plenty of hardware issues, the joke around our house is, you can drop it, just don't drop it on carpet from 1 1/2 ft or the screen will cracked.

Trying to get her away from her ipod touch. B-)

Since it's a Nexus device you can be sure that any issues that exist will be quickly rectified by Google with an update.  They've already come out with the 4.2.1 update to fix the 'December' missing issue in the People app and you can be sure we'll be getting another update to fix the bluetooth and screen lag/ui speed issues sooner than later.   That's one night thing about this being a Google Nexus tablet.  I'm not really concerned about being stuck with a glitchy OS since we're always the first to get the fixes and this being their flagship you know it's their top priority.

I've had my Nexus 10 since day they were released, and never had an issue with it, before or after rooting.

Unless you cancel within 1 hour of ordering via Google Play, then you can't cancel. If you do not want it, then you have to refuse delivery.

It will take about 2-3 weeks after that to get your money back though. I know this, as I refused delivery of a Nexus 7, as I'd bought one elsewhere with quicker delivery.

Don't plan on refusing, just second guessing my decision, flagship is one of the reasons for getting this one, the 7 was requested but I figured since I have a little extra this year I'd take the plunge :)

Great news! Your order on Google Play has shipped.
Now do I open it up to check it out and make sure everything is a-o-k, or do I wrap it and have it opened on Xmas?

That is a tuff call, but form my perspective, I have set up many tablets and computers, that were given as gifts, that were well received, when the recipient would have been challenged by the task.

Yeah,
When I got the kids net books a few years back I set them up and repackaged them, I think this year I'll work with them so they can learn something, if we decide to root I think we'll do the process together. Got to teach-em how to follow directions and if something goes wrong, how to investigate and fix.
