16GB Google Nexus 7 gone like the wind from Google Play Store

While the 8GB model of the Google Nexus 7 is still available from the Google Play Store, the 16GB variant has been sold out and is listed as 'coming soon'; most potential buyers of the device favor the 16GB model because of the lack of a microSD slot on the tablet...

this tablet is made for those who don't have enough money to buy an ipad, that's the reason why nexus 7 doesn't have 32,64gb and 4g versions...

actually, even the 16gb space is not enough, the batman game itself sucked up close to 2 gb space

Instead of saying selling like hotcakes
I would say selling like pirated Bluray/Dvd/Porn in a Malaysian Night Market

I ordered the 16 gig model on the 2nd of July and got a shipping tracking number on the 18th, was expecting a delivery on the 20th through Fedex Australia, my credit card got Charged on the 18th, after wating all day for the delivery I rang Fedex only to be told that Google have emailed them to not deliver it to me and to send it back, I called google after waiting for 3 hours on the phone only to be told they have no idea to what have happened, my Google Wallet account still shows that I got charged and no refund or a new tracking number have been given, I jumped ship from apple a year ago, one thing I have to give credit to apple is their customer service to me has been 100% shame about their Iphone product though :-). still waiting to hear from Google......
could it be they needed stock and they issued the email to fedex to send it back????

I think someone at FedEx Australia just got himself a brand-spanking new Nexus 7, at your expense.

Just for the true fans of both apple and google this might need to be said. The apple brand has nothing to do with how many it sells it's about quality in a product with updates to keep the product fresh. When you buy an iPhone it's meant to satisfy you for the duration of your contract or until the next model comes out but unlike Andriod the google phones must constantly be remade over to keep it fresh. There is no android phone that stays out a whole year until replace by a new one. The average is 2 to 3 months. Example look at the galaxy line. The note ain't been out that long but already being replace by the note 2 thus year. Galaxy 2 got replace within months by the three. Not to mention the htc has the quality but let Samsung copy the Sense program with TouchWiz or is it just me. But my guess is windows 8 will be a success!

If I were Google, I will Make the Nexus7 with only 1 model : 8GB with MicroSD-slot and sell for 250usd (like Tab 2 7.0) or 300usd in the first 6 months.
