The availability of the Nexus 7 from the Google Play Store has been in a bit of flux since pre-order shipments started going out late last week, but at least the 8GB model is now listed as “in stock” on the site. New orders for the $199 version of the tablet should ship immediately and arrive within three to five business days. The 16GB model, however, is currently backordered. New shipments of the $249 slate won’t arrive for another three to four weeks.
Heavy demand caused initial stock of Nexus 7 devices to sell out quickly both online and at retailers such as GameStop. Google is working hard to fulfill pre-orders and keep a steady supply of new units flowing out to consumers.
