16GB Nexus 7 sells out, sign up now for an update

The higher capacity version of Google's tablet has sold out, for now at least.

Despite some delays in shipping, and even some reported problems with the screen, Google and Asus' Nexus 7 tablet is flying off the shelves. So much so that the 16GB is now sold out, Pocketnow reports.

Head to the Google Play store and you'll see the 16GB version is listed as 'Coming Soon'. You can sign up to be emailed when it's back in stock.

The 8GB version is still listed as 'In Stock', with a delivery time of three to five business days.

This comes just a few days after Google updated customers on exactly when the Nexus 7 would ship. If you pre-ordered the 8GB version, you should have it by now -- all being well -- while those after the 16GB will have to wait until next week. (If you pre-ordered, that is. Though our very own Nick Hide received his on Thursday, the lucky so and so.)

Judging from the comments from some stories regarding the Nexus 7, Google has a lot of work to do when it comes to keeping people informed about the status of their purchases. The update this week was the first many had heard, and while Google upgraded some orders to next day delivery, many think it's lacking in the customer service department.

Some Nexus 7 devices have had some issues with the screen as well. One owner posted a snap of his device leaking light out of the side, while others complained of a creaky bezel. Taking off the back panel and tightening a couple of screws seemed to remedy the latter though.

Have you had any issues with your Nexus 7? Or are you still waiting for it to arrive? What do you make of Google's customer service? Let me know in the comments below, or over on our Facebook page.
