Google Nexus 7 16 GB tablet now on sale again

Google has a big sales hit on its hand with its Nexus 7 tablet. The Android 4.1 (Jelly Bean) devices, made by Asus, were announced with much fanfare in June and then went on sale on the Google Play website in July, along with some retail stores. While the 8 GB version was a big seller at  $199, Google found that the $249 16 GB version was an even bigger hit and even took down that version from sale on its site as demand exceeded its supply.

Now, people who have been waiting patiently to purchase the 16 GB Nexus 7 can now do so. The Google Play store now has the more expensive version back on sale again, saying it should ship in between three to five business days.

Just a reminder: Google is also giving folks who purchase either version of the Nexus 7 tablet some extra content "for a limited time". That includes a $25 credit towards purchasing items such as music, video, books and magazines from the Google Play store and some free software, including a free version of Transformers: Dark of the Moon (yes, we know ... it's not exactly the best movie ever made, but it's free).

Still waiting to see pricing for Surface RT. If it's reasonable, I'd go for that over the Nexus 7. If not, then I guess I know what I'll be getting.

When are the 25cm (10") screens going to come? I had an 18cm tablet two years ago and it was really just too small to be useful.

I don't care for a 10 inch screen (wouldn't say no though) as 7 is perfect for non-desktop use. Would like a rear facing camera (only ever used to deposit checks) and HDMI feature (would love to stream using this instead of an Atom/Ion box).

At my age the 10" screen is just right. I remember back in 1987 when I bought my first Mac (Mac Plus) it had only a 9" screen (oh for younger eyes again).

Nice pricing. Would like to see this in a 32 gig, and 10 inch screen.

We'll almost defiantly see a Nexus 10 at some point in the future.
