Google Nexus 7 sold out of 16GB model, launch marred by screen issues

The 16GB version of Google’s freshly launched Nexus 7 is already out of stock at the Play store, amid massive demand for the first-ever Android Jelly Bean slate.

The £199 variant appears to be a big-seller, as it’s no longer available to purchase on the site, which gives no ETA as to when new stock might be available and simply states ‘coming soon’.

Customers willing to wait can sign up to be notified by email when it becomes available again. Or they can save a bit of time and money and grab the £159 8GB edition, which is still in stock.

Meanwhile, reports have begun to surface that some units of the Nexus 7 suffers from a few display issues. According to Venture Beat, early adopters have complained of the touchscreen not registering inputs while running resource-intensive applications such as games or while multitasking.

The problem appears to be software-related, as it disappears if the screen is turned off and turned on again. But it is nonetheless a real blemish on an otherwise impressive device. Hopefully it’s not widespread and will be rectified soon with software patch.
