Google Addresses Nexus 6 Inventory Problems

When it was released last November, Google’s gigantic Nexus 6 was met with pretty positive feedback. The feedback wasn’t universally positive though, with small complaints being leveled from various sources. However, with the way the phone has been selling out since its launch, you would think it’s the perfect smartphone.

Google’s CFO Patrick Pichette addressed the problem of shortages, accepting the blame on Google’s behalf for not anticipating how well the phone would sell. The Nexus 6 has been in high demand and Google “had real issues and were unable to secure sufficient inventory to meet the demand [they] had forecasted.”

It’s definitely a good problem to have. The Nexus 6 was something of an experiment for Google. They were looking to see how well it would be received before they used it as a jumping off point for future handsets. I’d say the experiment was a pretty smashing success. Now let’s hope that Google can increase production to meet the unexpected demand.
