The Google Nexus 7 has failed to catch on with the masses and is selling dreadfully according to those who have seen the initial figures. There is still stock available despite the incredibly low price because consumers simply won't buy a device that looks as though it won't fill their needs.
Google mis-judged what consumers would buy and is now left with stocks on the shelves waiting for people to buy them. Such a shame.
Anyway, that's enough about the 8GB version. The 16GB is selling like hot cakes, is incredibly difficult to find and Google can't make them fast enough. It is receiving almost universal praise and has shown that there is life in the tablet market outside of the iPad. Well done Google.
