Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet started shipping late last week, and it appears many retailers are already out of stock.CNET took a look at Nexus 7 stock at Staples, Sam’s Club, and Office Depot and discovered the $199 tablet was sold out most places.
Anecdotally, we’ve also heard some people couldn’t find the Nexus 7 at some Staples and GameStop stores last week.
There’s a 1-2 week wait time if you order the Nexus 7 directly from Google.
Google started taking pre-orders for the Nexus 7 a few weeks ago following the product’s announcement at the Google I/O conference. We had a brief chat Hugo Barra, director of product management for Android, at the time and he said he was impressed with the first-day pre-orders.
