Google Nexus 6 already out of stock on the first day of pre-orders

Google Nexus 6 already out of stock on the first day of pre-orders
Just as expected, today Google started taking pre-orders for the Nexus 6 via Google Play. However, if you didn’t already place an order, right now you can’t do it anymore, as the huge Nexus is sold out. Out of stock. Gone.

Those who managed to pre-order a Nexus 6 have been informed by Google that the handset would start shipping on November 21. As you may already know, the new Nexus isn’t as affordable as the Nexus 4 or Nexus 5, carrying a premium price tag. The 32 GB version of the smartphone costs $649, while the 64 GB one can be yours for $699.

All major US carriers will also sell the Google Nexus 6, though for now they do not take pre-orders.

Manufactured by Motorola, the Nexus 6 is the first in the series to sport a 1440 x 2560 pixels (Quad HD) display, and obviously also the first to run Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box. While some customers are complaining about the size of the Nexus 6 - since not everyone enjoys carrying a 6-inch device around - a Google exec recently said that, once you get used to a phablet, you’re probably not going to want to go back to a smaller device.

Did you get the chance to pre-order a Nexus 6? Or do you intend to buy one at some point?

Had there been a 5.2 inch version of the nexus6, it would have been more successful....people don't love phablets as much as the phones...Samsung's flagship phones sell more than the notes....the 6 sells more than the 6+.

Didnt iPhone 6 and 6+ sell almost the same according to some article before? Also Asian countries love phablets, so there they sell much more.

No...the 6 sells more...and the same thing happens with Samsung's devices and other companies' devices.HTC one m7 was quite popular but most of the people don't even know about the max.

Wrong. The 6 and 6+ have sold equally in the U.S. and the 6+ has sold more than the 6 in other parts of the world. Apple has struggled to keep up with the demand for the 6+. This is well documented.

The 6 is selling more...there are enough reports about it...there is a 6+shortage because they manufactured fewer iPhone 6+ units when compared to the 6.(There were a lot more 6es than 6+es)
If u still don't want to believe it...let's talk about other companies... Samsung sells more s series phones than the notes, the same thing happened with other OEMS like HTC.
You may like a phablet...but phones are more popular, its a fact.

I love Android, but are you trying to compare the sales of a single android phone to the recently launched iphone? I hope I just misread.

Lucky for you.

How many phones do you have now that you've made pre-order? If I'm not mistaken you said last time that you ordered the Note 4 and now the Nexus 6, hmmm!

You are mistaken... I never ever mentioned that I ordered the Samsung Galaxy Note 4. If you read anything I post you would know that. I have the Note 3 & to me the Note 4 is not much different.

That's why I just pre-ordered Google Nexus 6, because it's different, larger & has the stereo front speakers.

5.2 or 5.5 would take this phone to the next level for most of the worlds android users

Yes...but it's not a nexus ,its not updated by Google...nexus tag and quick updates bring more value.

Moron, you're acting like we know how many were sold.

I'm not a hater by the way and I plan on getting one, but let's stay logical here. No one doubted the phone would sell.

Now you like the Nexus 6. I though you have ordered and have the Note 4 already? I think you making a fool here who reads your comments.

I don't hate the size. I hate the price. 350€ and I buy it.

Actually that's not necessarily true. Orders were open for less than 5 seconds (literally) and were never available for 64GB. It likely was an early misfire and they will begin to be sold (sometime) later today.

Hopefully. I also have suspicions that in order to distribute these to carriers Google had to limit supply on Google Play.

An unfortunate possibility.

Yeah i was spamming refresh, it went straight from 'preorder opens on the 29th' to sold out. I had my card ready for it too..

Well I didn't get mine in before they shut down the preorders. Maybe I'll try thru AT&T when they come up

This is story is split milk. An announcement when the Nexus 6 went on sale would have been helpful. Telling us over an hour after they sold out is very late to the game. I'm monitoring other sources regarding this now.

For any Android announcement you have to go to an Android site. Sites like Droid-life, Android Police and Android Central are always monitoring that stuff.
