Google confirms Nexus devices sold out, expects more in “coming weeks”
In case it wasn’t abundantly clear by the lack of an “add to cart” button on the Google Nexus 4 order page, Google has sold out of the initial stock of its new smartphone in some countries. 32GB Nexus 10 tablets also seem to be hard to find, although you can still order a 16GB model in the US.
The good news is that more devices are on the way. The less good news is that they probably won’t be here tomorrow… or the next day. Google says the plan is to add more devices “in the coming weeks to keep up with high demand.”
In other words, demand was higher than anticipated… which isn’t necessarily a bad thing… unless you’re a customer that had been hoping to get a new phone or tablet today.
T-Mobile is also expected to offer a Nexus 4 smartphone in-stores soon, for customers that want to pay a little less up front and sign up for a 2-year contract.
The Google Nexus 4 is a phone with a Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, a 4.7 inch, 1280 x 768 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, up to 16GB of storage, and Android 4.2 software. It’s built by LG, and prices start at $299 for a model with 8GB of storage.
Google’s Nexus 10 tablet features a 10 inch, 2560 x 1600 pixel display, 2GB of RAM, and a dual core Samsung Exynos 5250 ARM Cortex-A15 processor. It’s manufactured by Samsung, and prices start at $399 for a 16GB model.
