Google appears to be catching up to demand for the Nexus 7. Both versions of the flagship Android tablet, which launched early this month, are now listed as “In Stock” on the Google Play store.
This is especially good news for those who want the model with 16GB of internal storage. Last week, Google was sold out of this version, and was so unsure when it would get more units in that it stopped taking orders.
Enough units are now on hand that either version can be ordered now. The 8GB one sells for $200, while the 16GB model is $250.
More about the Google Nexus 7
The first tablet to bear the Google name is also the first with Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean), the latest version of this operating system. It is built around an NVIDIA Tegra 3 processor with a quad-core CPU and 12-core GPU, plus 1GB of RAM.
Not surprisingly, the Nexus 7 has a 7-inch touchscreen. This has a 1280 x 800 resolution with a 216 ppi pixel density.
It depends on Wi-Fi for Internet access, as there’s no cellular-wireless version. It also includes Bluetooth, NFC, and GPS.
Other features include a 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera but no rear-facing one. There’s also a 4,325mAh battery which Google says is good for 9 hours of video and 300 hours of standby..
