Nexus 7 LTE now out of stock – no Nexus tablets in stock on Google Play

Nexus 7 LTE
Google Play ran out of inventory of their WiFi models of the Nexus 7 in both 16GB and 32GB configurations earlier this month, but you were able to still order the Nexus 7 LTE, which included a free shipping offer. It looks like the free shipping offer worked because they too are now out of stock.

The three models of the Nexus 7, 16GB/32GB Wifi and LTE as well as the Nexus 10, in both 16GB and 32GB configs are all out of stock. This leaves no Nexus tablets available to purchase from Google Play. What does this mean? Well, the Nexus 7 will be 12 months old on the 26th of July, which is when it went on sale in the US last year. It could be replaced by a Nexus 7(2014) in the next few months, or Google may decide to simply move onto the Nexus 9, which leaked on Sunday.

There still seems to be stock of the Nexus 7 at retailers in Australia, although most retailers seem to only have the 32GB WiFi and LTE versions. The 16GB Nexus 7 is apparently scarce though with retailers JB HiFi, The Good Guys and Dick Smith showing only a 32GB Model(GoodGuys still has the LTE version) available, so perhaps retail stock is dwindling now as well.

Do you want a Nexus 7, or are you going to hold off until the Nexus 9?

Dan is a die-hard Android fan. Some might even call him a lunatic. He's been an Android user since Android was a thing, and if there's a phone that's run Android, chances are he owns it (his Nexus collection is second-to-none) or has used it.

Dan's dedication to Ausdroid is without question, and he has represented us at some of the biggest international events in our industry including Google I/O, Mobile World Congress, CES and IFA.

Nexus 9 built by HTC, I’m sold. I don’t use our tablet much, it’s a Galaxy tab 2 – yawn.

I really hope that they’re not stopping the 7″ tablet line. It’s been really popular, and I need to replace my 2012 model.

Looking forward to the new Nexus 7/8/9 or whatever number it will have. If rumours are correct and HTC are building it, there is a possibility that BoomSound might make an appearance together with stereo speakers. If it pans out this way, this is the one I want to replace my ageing N7 (2012) with. Current model just didn’t have enough wow factor (specification or functionality wise). Does gCorp announce new tablets at its I/O?

I love the 7, very portable. Big enough to read maps, etc while traveling. However I think my next tablet will be a 10 – 12 incher for use at home.
