The 16GB version of Google Nexus 7 tablet has sold out as Google has stopped taking new orders for the 16GB Nexus 7 table in the Google Play store. This shows that Google simply was not prepared for the terrific demand the device has attracted up to this point.

Since its introduction, about a month ago, at Google’s I/O conference the 16GB Nexus 7 tablet has gathered tremendous interest. Google has later provided additional details on the preordered 16GB Nexus 7 tablet delivery dates, stating it might take up to two weeks to arrive.

However, at this point the 16GB Nexus 7 cannot be purchased online from Google at all. Given the fact that physical retailers only sold the 16GB version, while the 8GB version is sold only online, it is no wonder that this particular version of the tablet is sold out. The only option left to customers is an e-mail notification.

Google Nexus 7 is a ground-breaking 7-inch tablet that redefines the whole idea of a tablet. It runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has access to the Google Play store for music, movies, and TV shows. It also boasts a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1,280-by-800 display. It could be a threat to the iPad’s total dominance to such an extent that Apple is allegedly developing a 7.85-inch “iPad mini.”

The 8GB Nexus 7 tablet is still available for online purchase and ships in three to five business days. It seems that Google was counting on higher demand for the $200 8GB model, but not for the $250 16GB model.

16GB Nexus 7 tablet is also available at various retailers – some third-party retailers display the 16GB Nexus 7 version as being in stock, but most of them list the tablet as temporarily unavailable.
