Google’s latest smartphone device, the Nexus 4, sold out in several countries within hours from its release. Reports came in that by early Tuesday, consumers were complaining the depletion of stocks. Even Google’s Play Shop ran out of the said devices, even posting notices for shoppers to leave their contact details so they could be notified once Nexus 4 had be restocked.
Nexus’ Google Plus page announced that the strong interest on the device led to the running out of the initial stock in a few countries. Experts say the strong demand for the Nexus 4 came from it not being locked to a particular mobile carrier while being sold for a starting price of $299, relatively more affordable than similarly unlocked iPhones from Apple. The Android-device also includes the latest Google mobile applications.
