The laws of supply and demand at work: Staples sells out of new Nexus 7 tablets.
It seems that Staples's $30 off tablet promotion worked well for them, as both models of the new Nexus 7 are already out of stock on their website. They join the 32GB version at Amazon, which now has a lead time of three to four weeks before orders can be filled.
Of course you can still try your luck at Google Play, or call around your local Best Buy and Walmart stores to see if they have any sitting quietly on the shelves.
We're glad to see the demand, but we sure hope we don't see a repeat of the last time.
