nexus 7 back in stock

Google’s 16GB Nexus 7 tablet is back in stock online a week after it sold out in the Google Play store.

The Nexus 7 has seen much interest since it was introduced about a month ago at Google’s I/O conference. It’s a stunning 7-inch tablet that re-writes the rules on what a $200 slate can offer. The tablet runs Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, has access to the Google Play store for music, movies, and TV shows, and features a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, and a 1,280-by-800 display.

The Google Play store sold out of the 16GB Nexus 7 model about a week ago and gave no indication when it would be available again. Google apparently did not anticipate just how many units people would buy of the more-expensive 16GB version, which runs for $250 versus the 8GB model at $200.

Google says that if you order now, the 16GB Nexus 7 will be delivered in 3 to 5 business days. Let us know in the comments if you’re planning to buy one. Or, if you have one, let us know what you think.
