Well, that was fast. Just one week after the 16GB-capacity Google Nexus 7 tablet suddenly ran out of stock , the higher-capacity version of Asus' critically acclaimed Android tablet is back in the Google Play Store, with a current delivery estimate of three to five business days.

That's the same estimated delivery time as the 8GB Nexus 7.

Since the 16GB version only costs $50 more to order, it feels like a logical step up for the versatile 7-inch tablet. While 8GB might be enough for some basic users, the Nexus 7 lacks an SD card slot or any other method of upgrading storage after purchase.
