16GB Nexus 7 tablets are now back in stock at the Google Play store after selling out last week.
High demand for the first Google-branded tablet undoubtedly surpassed the search giant’s expectations, following a sell out at its online store only days after release.
Google now has more Asus-manufactured 16GB Nexus 7 tablets in stock, with shipments expected to start within three to five days.
Announcing in an email, the company said that its higher-storage tablet is back on the Google Play store, saying, “We know you’ve been waiting patiently to get the new Nexus 7 (16GB) tablet. Good news! It’s back in stock on Google Play and we wanted to make sure you heard about it first.”
While Social Barrel has yet to see actual sales of the slate, both 8GB and 16GB Nexus 7 tablets evidently is a bestseller, thanks to its low-cost price and high-end hardware and software specifications.
The two variants carry a 7-inch 720p HD resolution display, a quad-core Nvidia Tegra 3 processor, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is the latest mobile operating system from Google, a front-facing camera for video calls, standard Wi-Fi connectivity and built-in NFC support.
The Google Nexus 7 are available on the Google Play store in both 8GB and 16GB models, costing $199 and $249, respectively. The Nexus 7 only cost Google $160 to develop.
