If you’ve been waiting today to get your hands on a Nexus 6, I’m sorry to say the chances are above about 95% that you’ve missed out. Since we announced the availability in Australia via the Play Store this morning, we’ve seen stock levels replenished three times, and each time, the stock has sold out within a short while.
As you can see from our graphic below, the initial stock available for purchase lasted about three hours, and that’s only because it became available at around 5.30 a.m. this morning. Once Australia woke up and figured out what was going on, the stock disappeared within the space of about an hour and a half. Between 8 a.m. and 9.30 a.m. we saw the stock replenish twice, and very quickly after, sell out again.
Fast forward to this evening, and around 5 p.m. a further tranche of stock was released, but sold out within about fifteen minutes or so.
Why are we posting about this? It tells us that despite the massive delays in releasing the Nexus 6 in Australia, there’s not really been any let-up in demand for the next instalment in the Nexus line. If anything, we’ve seen even higher demand this year than we have in years past, and that’s perhaps not all that surprising, considering the Nexus 6 is probably one of the most powerful phones to be released.
How did you go on launch day? Did you place an order? did you miss out? Let us know, below!
