The sales of the Nexus One have been less than stellar (T-Mobile’s Behold II moved more units), but Google maintains that the first phone offered in their web store is a profitable business.
Vodafone began taking pre-orders for the Nexus One yesterday and now reports are coming in that the device sold out. One of our readers ordered the device after it was announced and received the following email.
“Thank you for placing your order, reference number [redacted]. Unfortunately we have suffered a surprisingly high demand for the Nexus One From Google, which means that it is unexpectedly out of stock. Please accept our sincere apologies for any inconvenience caused. We hope to have further stock available within 7-10 working days and will contact you again once your order has been dispatched.”Vodafone Customer Care
No shortages were reported for the U.S. launch, so this might come as a surprise to some. If we receive any updates on the Nexus One’s availability in the UK, we will update this post later.
