Nexus 7 8GB Now “In Stock” From Google Play, Get It in 3-5 Business Days

This morning, we mentioned that the 16GB version of the Nexus 7 had been pushed back to a “3-4 weeks” shipping time frame. The 8GB version on the other hand, just upgraded to “in stock” and can be shipped to your house in 3-5 business days. I think it’s fair to say that the 16GB version has been much more of a hit because of the extra storage. Either that or Google created more stock of the 8GB knowing that it would be gobbled up at $199. You can’t really go wrong with either, you just need to decide how many movies, albums, TV shows, and games you plan to have on your device at one time.

    Personally I got tired of this BS from Google. I called to day and cancelled my order. They said it might ship tomorrow but they already screwed over plenty of people who ordered on day 1. I won’t be pre-ordering anything from Google anymore.

  • fauxshizzl

    I lucked out because of this. My friend pre ordered two. One for himself and one for his girlfriend whose birthday is coming up. Well since he can get another one in just a few days now, I got to buy his second one, and he is ordering another for her. Score!

  • Gildy

    I just got an email from google saying all orders made prior to July 11 were going to ship out before the end of this week and are being upgraded to overnight delivery. All preorders made after july 11 are shipping out next week (according to the same email)

  • I just went to staples and bought 3 16gb and they still have more. ill buy and ship if someone wants one im in CT

  • I’m not sweating the 8 or 16 GB version. Amazon just sent me an email saying that my 64GB ASUS Transformer Pad Infinity has SHIPPED!!

  • thanks! I just ordered the 8gb version!

    Now Google’s phones are down and I cant even call to complain. My friend ordered his on July 17th and got it today. I ordered the day of the keynote and still nothing. WTF… Does anyone have the number for me to call them off hand?

    • moelsen8

      You know today is july 17th right? 🙂

      • jsz3us

        I made the edit. in my frustration number mean nothing! lol

  • doubt they will sell many of those,most to go for the 16gig

  • TheDrunkenClam

    Does this thing have the stock browser on it or not?

    • The stock browser for JellyBean is Chrome and yes it’s on the device.

      • TheDrunkenClam

        I’m aware it has chrome. Does it have the stock android browser available, for flash content

        • Adobe dumped all new device support so it does not

  • Just wanted the DL crew to know my 16GB N7 just got here! Haven’t even opened the package yet. Good luck to everyone else receiving theirs today or within the next week!

  • Innes

    Hosed indeed, I was thinking to myself on Friday “Oh that’s nice, they will ship it out early next week and i’ll have it this week to load up my apps and content for a trip next weekend”.

  • Joe

    Instead of pre-ordering, I bought from Sams Club. 246 bucks, and I’ve had my 16GB Nexus 7 for 3-5 business days already. Newbs.

  • So, I know somebody who ordered an 8GB and has not received a single word from google. I finally found ONE gamestop with a 16GB in stock (only one in STL with any in stock) otherwise I’d still be waiting for my 16GB to ship.

    F**k you Play Store…f**k you.

  • Got my 16gb in a few hours ago. It’s fantastic.

  • EC8CH

    Preorder 16gb and case July 3rd.

    I’m patiently waiting, but if I don’t take delivery before the end of the week I think I might be slightly disgruntled.

    • I ordered mine then with no case and mine comes tomorrow.

  • Brent Stewart

    WTF Google?! I ordered my 16g on June 28th without any damn bells or whistles attached to delay my order – didn’t want a case so didn’t order one; didn’t add personalization as I can do that myself. Where the friggin hell is my order Google!? Why the hell are people who ordered two weeks after me getting priority in line. No charges on my CC, no activity in Wallet or Play, no email notification, and not even a hug or kiss to make it better. Don’t you love me anymore Google?

  • Can’t decide if I want to drop $250 bucks on one. I really want it for the games and to be able to get updates as fast as possible, but I don’t really think that justifies the price. (For me anyway)

  • Gregg

    This is crap! Where’s my pre order 16gb?

  • This is a real kick in the [email protected] for all the 16GB buyers out there! Ouch, Google, Ouch!

  • Good_Ole_Pinocchio

    MY 16GB is sitting on my porch… I’ll be HOME SOON BABY!

    • Yagermeister

      Did you order it with a cover as well?

    • if only i knew where you lived 😛

  • moelsen8

    wow, google isn’t even answering the phones right now, and their “call me” feature isn’t available either.

    • Andrew Wegand

      Step 1 – Admit you have a problem and ask others for help!
      (There’s 11 more, but I can’t remember them)

    • ManBearPig618

      It’s like we’re Google’s psychotic ex girlfriend, and they just broke up with us.

      • moelsen8

        they better not be hanging out with that “motorola” again….

  • moelsen8

    where the F is my 16gb i ordered within the first hour it was on the site?

    • Same here, dude.

    • ManBearPig618

      Same here, and I’d also like to add, where the F is my shipping information? Why has the charge been pending and then disappeared twice? Why hasn’t Kellex fixed it for me!?!?

      • moelsen8

        mine was never even pending as far as i know.. also no shipping information. only confirmation email. i just fired off an email at google customer service.. this is getting ridiculous.

        • ManBearPig618

          Yeah, my phone sat for an hour on hold this morning before I spoke to someone…no one has any answers. All they do is fire off a list of pre-written excuses that seem to contradict each other. The best part is that the orders are in “limbo”, such that even though there is no shipping #, no charge, and no indication of their progress, they are “too far along” to be canceled. Lol Google.

          • moelsen8

            i tried calling two other times today and had to call it quits after a half hour on hold. it’s crazy. can’t even cancel the order if i wanted to.

          • I called waited 5min and they told me it would be in tomorrow, I was happy given I ordered it on the 3rd.

        • Adam Lafin

          Same here, I had it in pending on my card, now the charge is nowhere to be found….WTF

    • Grumpy

      Yep. Same Here. Ordered within minutes of the Play Store allowing orders on the 27th. I’ve got no ‘shipping’ update at all. Disgraceful.

      I’ve only ever owned ‘Nexus’ phones and I’ve bought them all from Google; starting with the G1. Loyal customers deserve better.

    • Mark Shih

      I just called them today and cancelled my order. They told me it might ship tomorrow, I told them to just cancel. I also ordered it on the 27th.

  • I ordered mine (8GB) July 15, it shipped yesterday and arrived today and I’m loving it!

  • muffnman

    Tax and Shipping on the 8GB (only available on the play store) make it near comparable in price to the 16GB with no tax and free shipping from various online retailers. I have no idea why anyone would purchase the 8gb model straight from google. They really borked this launch.
