The Google Nexus 7 Tablet is experiencing high demand for its 16GB version. While the supply is very low, new shipments are expected to arrive in stores in August.
The 16GB version of the Nexus 7 Tablet is currently unavailable in physical stores and the Google Play store. Sellers are asking for urgent restocking.

GameStop is one of the shops to have fallen short on inventory and has been forced to pull the Nexus 7 tablet from its website. Other stores caught in a similar dilemma are Adorama and Staples, which are both waiting for re-stocking because their allotted share of the device sold out so fast.
According to various reports, GameStop is getting more inventory in and are looking to start selling again with a promised availability date set for August 7.
New York's Adorama store announced through its Twitter account a few weeks ago that their stock of Google Nexus 7 Tablets had sold out, and that it was shipping its stock based on orders received. The store's next batch of Google tablets are not expected to become available until mid August.
The 8GB tablet, however, is selling less devices than anticipated. Experts speculate that the reason for this is because of the lack of memory upgrade options available in the 8GB version. Manufactures may have assumed users would make greater use of the Cloud storage as opposed to internal space.
The 8GB model is being sold for $199 and the 16GB version is being offered for $249.
The Google Nexus 7 was unveiled by the company last month and it features the latest build of Android, known as 4.1, JellyBean. It also comes with a 7-inch display and a quad-core processor.
