Galaxy Nexus 4 Beats Galaxy S3 and iPhone 5 In Demand: eBay Alters Policy Selling Google Phone
Galaxy Nexus 4 has yet again topped the best Android phone chart considering the heavy demand from buyers and difficulty satisfying the pre-orders Following shipping assessments increased to ten weeks, the Nexus 4 8 GB version is lastly been labeled out of stock, indicating handsets will most likely take about three to four months or even more to reach buyers doorstep.
The main factors that is pushing demand for the Nexus 4 includes hardware specs and sub $350 price tag, despite the fact that the handset rivals iPhone 5 and Galaxy S3 in features and look. Actually, industry experts have earlier expressed doubts over Google’s ability to keep on providing Nexus 4 at the listed price.
In other words, Google has intentionally marked the time delays in weeks and now marked them as out of stock. The problem is only related with the 8GB model as the 16 GB version is still available for purchase. So, the alternative for desperate souls is the eBay and the story over there is even more interesting.
Apparently Nexus 4 8GB model’s demand has reached a new level disturbing the supply and demand balance, even though, as it has pulled in the interest of eBay. The online auction site will control sales of the Nexus 4, primarily for two diverse motives:
- To have a acceptable arena for vendors to take advantage of this Nexus 4 demand growth.
- To safeguard buyers from those seeking to rip-off those who are eager to purchase a Nexus 4.
The new policy will permit certified sellers to list as many Nexus 4 they can, but will allow only top-rated ebay sellers to list only eight handsets each week, and for moderate performer four phones a week only, and for small seller the number is only one a week.
So, this will be the first time an Android phone has forced eBay to alter the policy for sellers, and the factor alone is enough to prove that Nexus 4 is the most popular Android phone released in 2012.
