If you’re in the market for a Nexus 7, your best bet is to opt for the 8GB version if you just can’t wait. The shipping time when purchasing a 16GB Nexus 7 straight from Google is now 3-4 weeks. The status of 8GB model on the other hand has been changed to “in stock.” Google promises to deliver the Nexus 7 within 3-5 days.

It certainly appears the 16GB model won the popularity contest among consumers. Those who don’t want to primarily rely on the cloud may not find the 8GB model to be sufficient enough for their needs. The 8GB pre-orders also seemed to ship faster than the 16GB Nexus 7.

At this point, your best best in getting a 16GB Nexus 7 before three weeks is find one at retail. Check your local Sam’s Club, Staples, Office Depot or other electronic retailers.
