Google Nexus 7 Tablet Sold Out across Online Stores

Asus Google Nexus 7 Spec Chart



Google’s $250 16GB Nexus 7 tablet disappeared from Google’s online Play store over the weekend due to overwhelming demand, according to an online report. A message on Google Play advises tablet shoppers to sign up for e-mail alerts to learn when the tablet is back in stock. 


Google Nexus 7 Tablet Sells Out Online - Datamation: "Roughly 10 days after Google began shipping Nexus 7 preorders, the 16 GB version of Google's 7-inch tablet is sold out from its online store. The Google Play store greets potential buyers of the tablet, which is priced at $249, with a "coming soon" message and an optional email notification sign up.



Google has not said why the 16GB Nexus 7 is no longer for sale, but anonymous sources “close to Google” told the Guardian that the search giant “seriously underestimated” demand.



The 8 GB version, which costs $199, is still available."Google has not released sales figures, but selling out of the Asus-built device is a good sign. A quick survey of other online stores, including OfficeMax and B&H, reveals that the tablet is currently in short supply.

A low price helps, too. The 8 GB Nexus 7 model competes against Amazon's hot-selling, although aging, Kindle Fire in price while delivering more modern hardware. For $50 more, buyers get twice the storage capacity.
