Nexus 7 Buyers Choose Storage over Price, 16GB Model Sells Out on Google Play
The 16GB model, which sells for $249 on Google Play, is currently sold out without an ETA on when more inventory will be available. Google simply slapped a "Coming Soon" tag on the 16GB Nexus 7's product page, along with an email notification box for potential buyers who want to be alerted the moment more 16GB models are in stock.
In the meantime, the 8GB Nexus 7 is still in stock, with new orders being delivered within 3-5 business days, according to Google Play's listing. Without a microSD card slot, however, it's easy to see why buyers are clamoring for twice the storage at a $50 premium.
