In a late-last-week report, Reuters revealed that the newly-released Google branded tablet computer – the Google Nexus 7 – had already started selling out across the US, as of last week, even though the devices is, technically speaking, still to hit the stores!
The report came close on the heels of Google’s confirmation that the shipments of its Nexus 7 tablet – running the latest Android 4.1 ‘Jelly Bean’ version – had commenced on Friday, quite in line with the company's earlier July
12-July17 launch window for the device.
The Reuters report said that game retailer GameStop had already blown through its first two allotments of the Nexus 7 reserved for pre-purchased orders; with the third allocation of pre-order units to be available only by next month.
Among the other stores which have disclosed that they have sold out of their Nexus 7 stock include Sam's Club and Staples, both of which listed the tablet as "out of stock" on Friday. In addition, by Monday afternoon, Office Depot also listed Nexus 7 tablet as “out of stock.”
The situation clearly shows that there has been a heavy rush of customers for pre-ordering the highly-impressive Google tablet which boasts a 7-inch 1280 x 800 HD IPS back-lit display; Nvidia's quad-core Tegra 3; 1 GB of RAM; a 1.2-megapixel front camera; Bluetooth; and NFS technology.
The Nexus 7 is already garnering rave reviews from the technology world, All Things D's widely followed Walt Mossberg directly calling the tablet "a winner"!
