Nexus 7 tablet sales off to fast start

By Salvador Rodriguez

Good luck getting a Nexus 7 — the Google tablet has sold out from many of the retailers carrying the device.

The seven-inch screen device is Google’sfirst in-house developed tablet, and many have said it is the first true challenger to Apple’s iPad. Now that sales have begun, it seems consumers might agree.

The Nexus 7 has been available for pre-order from Google since it was unveiled last month, and recently other retailers have begun carrying the tablet on their sites too. But now most list the Nexus 7 as sold out, back-ordered or have a shipping wait time of a couple of weeks for the tablet.

The Google Play store lists “SHIPS SOON” on their Nexus 7 page and says the device will take a week or two to arrive.

GameStop, one of the first retailers to announce it would be selling the Nexus 7, has its 16 GB tablet listed as back-ordered and doesn’t expect to ship it in less than three weeks, according to its site.
