After the first batch of Google Nexus, which was sold out in less than 30 minutes, the next batch of Google Nexus 4 arrived for sale in the US day before yesterday. There were huge rush accompanied by technical glitches which showed ‘sold’ out within a minute.
At 12pm PST the phone appeared for sale in the US according to The Next Web this week. A minute later the website showed ‘sold out’ status. After a few minutes there were brief flashes of ‘in-stock’ status but people were not able to make purchases or add the product to their carts.
Some readers even reported that they’ve been able to add them to their carts, but then get a high demand error reports the news report at The Next Web. The error status indicated that the system was not working properly due to huge traffic.
Google everyday handles huge and huge traffic without any problem. Just look at its search engine, play store or any other service. And Google of course knows how to handle huge traffic. So, this message seemed little “ironic”.
This appears like Google for the second time is showing flaws with the ordering system of the Google Nexus 4. The first batch also showed sold off too soon.
The Google nexus 4 is a great device and has received very good reviews around the world. The most interesting part is that the device comes at cost which is much lower than the iPhone 5 or a Galaxy S3. Though the device do not support 4G LTE and is available in limited number of countries, people want to own a Nexus 4 this year, but the device is constantly being delayed allowing other phones to take a lead in the market.
