If we had a nickel for every time we heard of the Nexus 4 going out of stock, I guess we’d be a little richer than we are now. But the same fate was followed by the Samsung made Nexus 10 tablet, which sustained the demand at first but later failed to remain in stock. This also could be a simple case of Google underestimating the sale of the tablet, much like it reportedly did with the Nexus 4 smartphone. But it seems like Google is beginning to get its house in order as both the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 seem to be getting back slowly in stock with the latter being the latest to arrive. If you’ve been eager to get the Nexus 10 but have been struggling to cope with the lack of availability, this should come as good news. Users will have to wait close to two weeks to get their hands on the device though which is a lot better than being out of stock, so I don’t think it should be a hindrance for the users.
We advise you to get your hands on the listing before it runs out of stock, which is very likely to happen unless people boycott the device or something. Hopefully, there should be no server issues this time around as you won’t have millions of users waiting patiently to get their hands on the tablet at the same time. This certainly helps us forget the uneventful two months these devices have had and let’s hope these devices are here to stay.
The Google Nexus 10 is one of the best tablets money can buy right now for the simple reason that it features one of the best display panels ever used on a tablet, coupled by an equally good dual core chipset (Exynos 5250) with two Cortex-A15 cores clocked at 1.7 GHz. The price is even better at $399 and $499 for the 16 and 32GB variants respectively. Combine that with the stock Android 4.2 experience, and you’re pretty much looking at the best Android tablet out there. However, app compatibility still remains a major issue for Android tablets. Unfortunately, there aren’t a lot of apps out there which make use of the full potential of the Nexus 10’s display.
So what does it mean when we see both the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 back in stock right about the same time? Well, it seems to me that Google has finally woken up and placed orders in big numbers to meet with the growing demand. But we’re not entirely sure whether Google alone is to be blamed for the fall in supply. Regardless, let’s hope the availability issues of the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 are gone for good.
