Google's Nexus 6 is the first bona fide flagship smartphone the company has ever released. Built by Motorola the device is a high spec'd with a Quad HD screen and Qualcomm Snapdragon 805. However, it has retained something that other Nexus smartphones have always had, it is not widely available. In fact, it has been in and out of stock sporadically since it launched back in November.

The reason for that is because Google did not expect the Nexus 6 to be in such demand, and in some ways it is only really a reference device for future Android smartphones. Google CFO, Patrick Pichette, said that the Nexus 6 is "very well received as a new phone," but "we had real issues and were unable to secure sufficient inventory to meet the demand we had forecasted".

To try to ease demand, Motorola also started selling the Nexus 6 on its own website.
