16GB Nexus 7 Currently Sold-Out on Google Play, Listed as ‘Coming Soon’

Ever since Google dropped the N7 bomb that’s all people have been talking about lately. The new tablet from Google has received overwhelming response from tech blogs and consumers alike, and sales of the device reflect its high demand. Nexus 7 orders from the Play Store went from a 3-5 day shipping period to the 16GB version being completely sold out. Currently, the higher priced 16GB Nexus 7 is listed as “coming soon” and those who are interested in purchasing the device are asked to enter their email to receive an update when more stock becomes available.

At the time of writing this, the 8GB version was still listed as available and will ship in 3-5 days. For only $50 more I can see why the larger version is much more appealing but unless you already jumped on the bandwagon it looks like you will have to wait for the next batch to arrive. This may not be a bad thing, though. If anything, hopefully the screen issues will have been sorted out by then. We will keep you posted.
