DHAKA: Google’s Nexus 7 tablet is off to an encouraging start, with major retailers running out of the gadgets as the Internet company’s first entry in an increasingly crowded market showed up in United States stores.
GameStop said it had already run through its first two allocations of the tablet, co-developed by Google and Taiwan’s Asustek that starts at US$199 and has drawn glowing reviews from major gadget reviewers.
Sam’s Club, the warehouse chain owned by Wal-Mart Stores, and Staples listed the device as being out of stock on their websites as of Friday.
Office Depot’s website continued to offer the device for sale as of the afternoon, The Straits Times reports on Saturday.
Google unveiled the tablet, which the company hopes will allow it to better compete against Apple and Amazon.com and funnel more people into its trove of online content, at its annual developer conference in San Francisco at the end of June.
