Nexus 7 selling like hot cakes, supply tight

Written by Peter Scott



16GB version delayed by a few weeks


Google’s Nexus 7 tablet seems to be doing quite well in its first week of sales. Many retailers in the US are having trouble getting enough product to meet demand and now it seems Google was forced to delay the 16GB version.

Although the 16GB model was supposed to ship within a week, Google’s Play Store now states that it will ship in three to four weeks. However, we can only take a wild stab at sales figures in spite of the apparent shortage. Perhaps Asus wasn’t able to churn out enough tablets to meet initial demand, or Google simply underestimated the demand to begin with. In any case the shortage will create additional buzz, which can’t be a bad thing for the companies.

It is also worth noting that the rollout will be rather slow. English speaking markets on both sides of the Atlantic are getting first dibs, but the rest of the world will get the Nexus 7 in a couple of months. Still, that's better than the Kindle Fire.
