Google seems to have underestimated the demand for its 16 GB Nexus 7 because it has completely sold out the devices in the US. The 7-inch tablet, which sells for US$249 can no longer be purchased in the Google Play store, and all customers can do now is list their names to be notified when the Nexus 7 will be available again.
Customers cannot place orders for the device as well, and if you’re looking to grab a Nexus, you’ll have to settle for the 8 GB version which has a more regular shipping time.
Even retailers of the the 16 GB Nexus 7 has sold out. The strong demands yet zero availability has pushed the price of the device in some online stores, including eBay, where the gadgets is being sold at twice the price in Google Play Stores.
More people are going for the 16 GB version as many customers are unwilling to rely on cloud services for their content, which is what happens with the 8 GB version. The Nexus 7 has also faced critiques for its dependency on internet connection, and absence of a 32 GB version.
