Nexus 7 popular 16GB sold out in a flash

Obviously the biggest and most interesting piece of tech currently in the Android space at the moment is the first Android Jelly Bean slate from the Google guys, the Google Nexus 7, and it appears that the demand for the Nexus 7 is so high that it seems supplies of the Jelly Bean slate are running low, especially when it comes to the 16GB model.

Apparently orders for the 16GB Google Nexus 7 went from 3 to 5 days shipping to being sold out entirely at Google Play, and a report by Talk Android has it that the 16GB Nexus 7 is now listed as ‘coming soon’ with those that wish to purchase the tablet needing to enter their email so they can be notified once the Android Jelly Bean slate is again available.

However, it’s not just Google Play that has run out of Nexus 7 stock, as according to Tech Radar, Office Depot, Costco, Sam’s Club, Staples, and GameStop are also out of stock, and online storefronts such as B&H have also shifted all Nexus 7 stock.

The word is, the Google Nexus 7 is either ‘temporarily out of stock’ or ‘coming soon’ at Staples, Office Depot, MobileCity, Sam’s Club, Kmart and in the UK Currys PC World, whilst GameStop says they have shifted their first two allotments and expect more next month, whilst B&H state orders ‘will be filled in order they are received’, which doesn’t really give any hints.

However, as for the 8GB version of the Google Nexus 7, it appears you can still pick up the smaller capacity slate from Google Play with that 3 to 5 day shipping, but it isn’t really that surprising that the 16GB tablet has already run out, as it only costs an extra 50-bucks and thus more appealing.

So if you haven’t already managed to secure a 16GB Nexus 7 it looks like you will have a bit of a wait on your hands. Has any of our readers had difficulty in purchasing the 16GB Nexus 7, or have you already received yours?

    I was walking out of PC World last week after turning up my nose at the meagre selection of tablets on display and a salesman asked if I was looking for anything in particular. When I mentioned the word “tablet”, he asked if I had heard of the Google nexus. The store staff were just in the process of opening their first delivery and, naturally, I bought one on the spot.
