Gear VR has been sold out from almost day one, leaving users to wait for a restock. We’ve been seeing this for over a week now:
However, according to Samsung Customer Support:
“Back-ordered Gear VR will be restocked on November 30th. Expect either a shipping notification or another back-order notification depending on when you ordered.”
So expect the shipping to start tomorrow, with expected package delivery notification somewhere around tuesday/wednesday.
It is actually quite amazing how well Gear VR has sold, desipite it being bound to only the newest Samsung phones. I even got curious enough to ask Samsung and Oculus as to how many have they already sold within a week. Sadly they could not tell us the exact number.
According to 2015 Digital Index Online Shopping data, month November has been crazy in terms of sells, reaching almost $27 billion, and half of it is from mobile devices (with Gear VR being one of the top sellers). That really shows the popularity Gear VR can achieve.
