Features - Nexus 7. Nexus 7 sees "incredible demand", sells out at major retailers. Introduced 3 weeks ago at Google I/O 2012, the Nexus 7 with Android JellyBean has proven to be a runaway hit. It has already sold out at brick-and-mortar stores such as Costco, GameStop, Sam's Club, Office Depot, and Staples, and is unavailable at online stores such as B&H. The 16GB model is especially hard to find. Here's a run-down: GameStop says the 16GB Nexus 7 is "Backordered". Nexus 7 sells out across the USA. It's an amazing feat to behold when a company makes a device so popular that it sells out in one store, much less the entirety of the USA - but that's what Google is doing with the Nexus 7.

This is to be expected as James is our Mobile News columnist and is a self-professed mobile technology junkie. James and I both talk about the industry a lot together, and while we agree on many things, we have very different ways of looking at mobile tech. I tend to look at things from a very 10,000-foot, more enterprise oriented and vertical market level and James looks at things from a consumerist, in the trenches level.

James gets to look at every single gadget in the industry because manufacturers rely on him for in-depth product feedback, whereas I am extremely selective about my technology because more often than not, I have to pay for it myself if I want to evaluate it.
