Google recently unveiled its new flagship smartphone, the Google Nexus 5. And as already expected, the smartphone was exactly what we though it would be and had the exact same hardware configuration that the rumors and leaked reports have been telling us.
But even before consumers could get a good look at the Google Nexus 5, the smartphone has already started disappearing from the Play Store. As a matter of fact, the black colored 16GB version of Google Nexus 5 went out of stock in just a few hours after making its official appearance in the US Play Store! This clearly confirms that consumers have been eagerly waiting to get their hands on the new flagship device and many of them already had their eyes set on the Play Store.
So the 16GB black Nexus 5 is gone! But you can get the white color option very easily if you want. The White Google Nexus 5 units are still were stock in stock when we checked. So you can get the 16GB as well as the 32GB version of the handset depending on your storage requirements. Remember that the Nexus 5 dose not have a microSD card support so you won’t be able to expand storage later if required.
Coming back to the Black color option, consumers interested in the 32GB version should not have any kind of problem either. Of course you will have to wait a little longer, but you can at least be sure that you are going to get one. So the thing is, if you have not pre-ordered your Nexus 5 handset yet, you are going to have to wait for some days.
So now that you have got an idea about the current scenario of the availability of Google Nexus 5, we have listed out the estimate time that it might take for Google to ship the handset that you choose to buy. Be sure to take a good look at the information below and keep following up with the Play Store in order to check whether there are any changes.
Google Nexus 5
- 16GB Black – available from November 8
- 32GB Black – available from November 8
- 16GB White – ships in 1-2 business days
32GB White – ships in 1-2 business days
The sad part is that this is not the first time that Google has ran out of stock! The Google Nexus 4 also had a huge demand and Google ran out of stock every now and then. The company does not seem to have learnt anything special from an experience that should have made them a strong competitor. Everyone loves Nexus devices and the company already knows this! Then why not have an extremely large amount of stock in order to ensure that consumers do not have to wait in line (like always).
Whatever be the case, if you were planning to get a Google Nexus 5, we say you stick to your point and get one! The reason is because the Nexus 5 is a great smartphone and is one of the very few devices that will let you experience pure Android goodness! Lastly, take a look at the key specs of the new flagship.
