Coming soon to a Best Buy near you!
WHAT!? They really did sold out all of them?
Never expected it since it's kinda expensive and on top of it you gotta have some equipment compatible with it
Well, considering the price of the unit and the rapidity with which the product "sold out" after it was announced, I'm inclined to believe the initial production run was relatively small. If it were otherwise, meaning they actually sold something on the order of a million units (or more), I would think that number would have been disclosed by the folks at Nest in a press release. Instead, they're not releasing the exact number of pre-orders.
After all, it is a startup company (relying on cash infusions by partners/venture capitalists) and, as such, they absolutely must demonstrate that there is sufficient demand for the product. You don't do that by manufacturing zillions of units and then have them sit in warehouses waiting for enough orders to sell through the initial run in a short period of time.
Forgot that part, totally right
