Nearly every version of the Nexus 7 (2013) is out of stock in US Play Store, Volantis on its way?

by: Andrew GrushJuly 31, 2014


We’ve been hearing talk for a while now that Google may be replacing both the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 in one swoop, instead the search giant is said to be preparing to release a premium 8.9-inch tablet built by HTC and believed to be debuting under the name Nexus 9. Reportedly the new HTC tablet will arrive alongside Android L, but it’s all just rumor and speculation at this point.

One thing that isn’t rumor, however, is the status of the Nexus 7. It appears that the Nexus 7 (2013) may finally be gone from the U.S. version of the Play store, with the exception of the 32GB GSM LTE model. As for the rest of the versions of the Nexus 7? They are currently listed as out of stock, specifically under the message “we are out of inventory. Please check back soon”. Now it’s possible this could be a temporary situation and that more stock is incoming, but then again, the Nexus 10 has been displaying this same message for what seems like ages now.

While the Nexus 7’s current  status doesn’t necessarily prove HTC’s rumored Nexus tablet is on its way, it seems to suggest that change is in the wind. What do you think of the Nexus 9 based on what we know? Still holding out hope for an eventual Nexus 7 or Nexus 10 refresh?

    would be rather early unless Android L is coming out sooner than we expected or that they underestimated the demand for the Nexus 7

    I’d love a new nexus 10, the old one is so outdated already they have to make a new one that I can finally buy. And make it available worldwide, since the previous one I couldn’t buy in my country

    Well its been over a year so hopefully a new model is coming soon. I still enjoy my 2013 N7 and am not sure what they could add to make me upgrade.

      The only thing I really don’t like about the n7 is the placement of the speakers.

      If the next tablet is front-facing (like the Nexus 10), I’ll be very interested.

    Since the Nexus 10 is still listed on the store, I want the last of the stock to be sold, they can sell it on discount.. And then update all the Nexus 10’s to android L. Make it the last update. Before continuing with a new tablet

    I don’t think I’ll upgrade this time. The nexus 7 is perfect for web and films, don’t think something could convince me to upgrade, unless it was incredible

    • Jeremy McWatters

      I’m in agreement.

    We nneed a Nexus 7(3) with smaller bezels around 30% smaller a 2.5GHz Quad core snapdragon 801,2GB of ram 5MP camera + 2 MP front camera(improved lens) a better 1080p display. and price it for 229$ for the 16gb 269$ for the 32GB model and 299$ for the 64GB model. i’ll surely upgrade from my iPad mini to the 64GB model.

    I really wanted to hold out for the rumored Nexus 9 since it would be designed with “Android L” in mind and likely have a 64bit cpu with 4GB of Ram.
    But I could not wait and bought a Galaxy Tab Pro 8.4 this past week. I almost bought the Galaxy Tab S for the better display but I feared its Exynos CPU would not get as good of community support. I have to say I like the Tab Pro way better than my wife’s iPad Air. It was laggy out of the box but after two over the air updates and Nova Launcher you cannot tell the difference between it and the iPad for anything. The battery is not as good as the Air. I hope it gets an ‘Android L’ update from Samsung if not then a ROM from CM or Omni.
