There is no doubt that the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 are in high demand with both devices listed as “Sold Out” on the Google Play Store again. Customers who were looking to order one of the devices will have to wait until Google gets their next batch of stock in. Albeit customers waiting for the Nexus 4 could potentially be waiting for an extended period of time, as Google UK & Ireland boss Dan Cobley explains LG’s supply as “scarce and erratic.” In addition to the Nexus 4 and Nexus 10 listed as “Sold Out,” the 16GB model of the Nexus 7 has also been sold out. Albeit it should be in stock shortly if Google plans on selling 1 million units this month.
The high demand is definitely a good sign for Google, but the Nexus 4 shortages have been more than frustrating for customers and potential buyers alike. Hopefully Google will be able to prepare for such a high demand like this next time. I have my doubts that we’ll be seeing another LG-manufactured Nexus device after this fiasco though.
Regardless, we’ll make sure to let everyone know when Google receives their next batch of stock! In the mean time, if you’re really desperate to get a Nexus 4 for your loved one(s) for Christmas, there are a plethora on e-Bay brand new, albeit at inflated prices.
