Nexus 7 HSPA+ Sold Out Through Google Play Store
Another new Nexus device has sold out on the Google Play Store in the United States and this time, it’s the new Nexus 7 HSPA+ which went on sale alongside the Nexus 10 and the Nexus 4 earlier this week.
The Nexus 7 HSPA+, the 32GB model with cellular data capabilities, is now showing up as sold out on the U.S. Google Play Store, just a few days after the device went on sale to the public.
Google’s Play Store does not say when the device might return to stock only saying that inventory of the device is currently unavailable and that interested customers should check back soon.
In a statement earlier this week, Google stated that sold out Nexus models would be replenished in the coming weeks but it offered no specifics as to when the devices would come back into stock.
The Nexus 7 HSPA+ joins three other Nexus devices that are currently unavailable on the Google Play Store in the United States. The Nexus 4 8GB and Nexus 4 16GB are both out of stock, selling out shortly after they debuted, and the 32GB Nexus 10, Google’s larger Nexus tablet, is currently sold out as well. The four devices again should be back in stock in the weeks ahead, hopefully in time for the start of the holiday shopping season which kicks off later this month.
Google’s new Nexus 7 is its latest 7-inch tablet and it joins the 16GB and 32GB on shelves just before the holiday. The only difference between the sold out model and the other two is that the device comes unlocked with an AT&T SIM for use with the carrier’s HSPA+ network.
T-Mobile also carries a version that runs on its HSPA+ 42 network. AT&T’s runs on a slower version of HSPA+, HSPA+ 21.
At $299.99, the Nexus 7 HSPA+ is certainly a tablet worth looking at this holiday season though those who weren’t able to place an early order are now left wondering if they will be able to get it in time for the holiday.
Hopefully, Google delivers some good news soon.
