Nexus 7 16GB sold out after customers shun Google’s cloud service
23 July 2012 9:43 GMT / By Danny Brogan
Customers can now not order the 16GB Nexus 7 from the Google Play store after demand for the device surpassed the number available.
Any orders made via Google’s online store as much as 20 July could be fulfilled, but any customers who attempt to place an order now are just left with the choice to “sign as much as be notified by email.”
While the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 has sold out, the 8GB variant remains available. In response to The Guardian this can be largely right down to Google thinking more customers would elect the cheaper 8GB model with its cloud service providing any additional memory storage if necessary.
However, it seems that customers would rather pay extra for the extra storage onboard the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean device.
The news that Google has run out of Nexus 7′s would possibly not come as an excessive amount of of a surprise, after Asus (the manufacturer of the device) told Pocket-lint back in June that they expected to expire of the device right away .
Asus is expounded to be engaged on another batch of 16GB Nexus 7′s, though it might take numerous weeks for these to be made available during the Google Play store.
