Google has clearly been finding it a little tough meeting demand for the Nexus 7 tablet, with both the direct Play Store sales channel and other retailers pretty much all out of stock of the 16GB model.
Google’s Play Store listing for the 16GB Nexus 7 model doesn’t even let you order the thing, with the site only letting users register to be told when more stock arrives. Meanwhile, Ebuyer, which led the way with the first batch of sales, is also out of stock, claiming it’ll be August 10th before more 16GB Nexus 7s ship.
So it’s been selling very well. So well, in fact, that it’s now selling very poorly because there aren’t any left to sell. That’s still a very big win all round, we think, for Google and Asus.
