Even though Google has started shipping units of its eagerly anticipated Nexus 7 Tablet, retailers are struggling to cope up with manic demand for the device. Most retailers including Staples, GameStop and Adorama have announced they are sold out and are struggling with pending orders.
The tablet which was announced in June sent slate users in a tizzy with many enthusiasts opting for pre-orders at various websites. Google’s 7 inch tablet with Android 4.1 OS code Jellybean and Quad Core processor has excited gadget users because of its low price structure. At Google, on Google Play store the 8GB model is priced at $199 and 16 GB device at $249.
The store has promised delivery within one or two weeks. Most retail stores have received pre-orders for the $249 tablet. Retailers have promised customers deliveries of Nexus tablets will begin by August. Although shipments of the tablets have been deployed by Google, most retailers have reported they have already sold out.
