Shocker! Nexus 7 3G model no longer in stock on Google Play

by: Bams SadewoNovember 15, 2012

Sold out! This is what customers see when they try to purchase the Nexus 4 and the Nexus 10 from the Play Store. In fact, the two devices have been out of stock pretty much within minutes after they were made available there – except for the 16GB Nexus 10 tablet.

If you’re hoping to snag the Nexus 7 with mobile data, you can kiss your HSPA+ dream goodbye for now.

Like its two Nexus cousins, Google has sold all of its inventory of the 7-inch slate. If you’re feeling lucky, you can try to refresh the page every now and then. But then again, Google did say it will only replenish the stock of the Nexus devices “in the coming weeks”.

Did anyone manage to order the Nexus 7 3G yesterday? Are you hopeful that it’ll become available again on Google Play soon?

    HSPA N7 sold out in the UK too – I tried to buy one this morning, having spent yesterday smarting over failure to snag an N4. And still no comment from Google on the N4 sales fiasco. Does shake one’s faith more than a little. Still, I guess we’re all so tied into their infrastructure they really don’t have to give a damn. Never thought it would be Google themselves who’d make Apple look good…

      Hey, it’s all part of the marketing experience..drives demand. that’s how apple works, basically there products are not that great but the marketing makes people go crazy for there crap. There will be more product very shortly. the issue is parking and shipping, they have not quite got a good hand on it as yet

        I hope you are right about them having more in stock soon (very soon I hope), because I want one so bad. I was on my last authorization page when the Nexus 4 was out, but Google’s servers broke and I couldn’t buy it.

    I ordered my Nexus 7 32gb 3g on the 13th. I am waiting on it right now to arrive by UPS. I’m so happy I was able to order it before it was sold out. UPS lady is about to be jumped on lol.

    I’m very jealous of anyone who has had their 3G sent to them – I ordered mine the day of availability in fact within 15 mins of the announcement), and was excited to see a package for me from Google just 3 days later. My excitement was however very short lived – they have shipped me an 8G non 3G model L You can imagine how disappointed I was – and, having contacted Google twice each day since my initial call I’m still no further forward. It appears to be stuck in the Google bureaucracy. I’m reluctant to return the 8G (under the 15day period) because I’ll be at the back of the queue once again.
