Without ever announcing a firm launch date for the Nexus 7, Google quietly changed the Nexus 7 8GB status from Shipping Soon to in stock and ready to be delivered within 3-5 business days. This is great news for those looking to get their hands on a Nexus 7 8GB tablet as it can be delivered in just a few days.
Unfortunately, the Nexus 7 16GB model remains backordered as it will ship within 3-4 weeks after the order is placed. We’re hoping Google and Asus can work to fix the shipping delays and provide more stock to retailers who also ran out of initial pre-order devices.
The Nexus 7 is certainly an enticing tablet, and we’re happy to report to our readers that the 8GB model can be purchased and delivered quickly online. However, I hope to see the same happen to the 16GB model and retailers across America able to offer the tablet in-store as well.
