Google’s Nexus 4 smartphone was sold out in the U.S. Play Store within minutes of its listing. The Nexus 4 went on sale at 8:35 and just within a few minutes, both the models – 8GB and 16GB – were sold out.
Talking about other countries, the Nexus 4 was completely sold out the UK, but the tablet is still available, and up for grabs. In Europe, the smartphone has been sold out there as well. Many buyers have reported their dissatisfaction at how Google handled the checkout process. These users were not able to pay the amount and then all of a sudden they came to know that the device is sold out.
This sellout is good when looking at Google’s perspective, but we don’t know how much stock was up for grabs. By looking at the short time, we can only say that Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) did not have much stock of both the variants of the Nexus 4.
