While the sell-out may be welcomed as good news by Google marketing execs, it’s one more blow to customers eagerly seeking the device — major retailers including GameStop, Staples, and Sam’s Club all sold out of the Nexus 7 on its first day of widespread availability last Friday
More good news for the Nexus 7. After a (surprisingly?) good review from resident Techcrunch Apple fanboy MG Siegler, now it’s apparently sold out on its own official store as well as conventional brick & mortar store.
I’m not sure about the use of “Coming Soon” as a marketing statement though. Customer might wonder what has happened to the device, and stocks being sold out might not be the first thing that come to their mind. They might be, in my opinion, better off using “Sold out, stocks coming soon” or increase the predicted shipping time like Apple does when they’re overwhelmed with orders. Increase the hype, why don’t you?
Also, what is up with those screen problems?
