Google Stops Nexus 7 Orders


Despite the lack of a rear-facing camera, the $200 Nexus 7 tablet is in big demand.  This seems to be the magic price point for these units and because of the high demand, Google has changed the product status of the 16GB version in the Play Store to "Coming Soon".  SlashGear has a few more details.  The 8GB version is still available btw.

It has also already sold out at major retailers, including Costco, Gamestop, Sam’s Club, Office Depot, and Staples. The online versions of all the above stores list the 16 GB device as either “backordered,” coming soon,” “in-store only,” or simply “out of stock.” Your in-store chances aren’t much better.
