The Nexus 7 may well be the perfect 7″ tablet, but a few glaring omissions can potentially create issues. Most notably, the lack of a microSD slot leaves you stuck with a finite amount of storage, making the 16GB option the better buy especially for those of us who enjoy gaming on our devices (FIFA 12 was a massive 2GB by itself). Unfortunately, the 16GB Nexus 7 was hard to find, with retail stores selling out of the device and Google Play out of stock with nary an availability date given.
It seems Google has gotten another shipment from ASUS, and currently has the 16GB Nexus 7 back in stock on Google Play. Like the 8GB model, anyone who orders the 16GB Nexus 7 today should have the tablet on their doorstep in 3-5 business days. To get your hands on the 16GB Nexus 7, head over to Google Play and put in an order.
