When the Nexus 6 was released, given its impressive hardware specs, it was sold out pretty quickly. Back then Google promised that they would try and get it restocked every Wednesday via the Google Play Store, but like we said with its popularity, inventory of the handset depleted pretty quickly.
However it seems that it wasn’t just the popularity of the handset that was to blame, but Google’s management of it. Speaking during Google’s Q4 2014 earnings call, Google’s CFO Patrick Pichette was quoted as saying, “We also faced a few real challenges as well. While the Nexus 6 was very well received as a new phone, we had real issues and were unable to secure sufficient inventory to meet the demand that we had forecasted.” Read full post →Google Admits They Faced Challenges With The Nexus 6’s Inventory

According to a report from The Wall Street Journal, Alibaba was said to have invested $10 million into OUYA.
