Good news for Nexus 7 fans: The 16GB version of the popular Google tablet has been restocked and is now available for purchase from the Google Play store again for its standard $249 price tag. Google (GOOG) briefly discontinued sales of the 16GB Nexus 7 last week after the Guardian reported that the company had “seriously underestimated” demand for the more expensive 16GB version of the tablet. The fact that the 16GB model has been selling well should be good news for Google since the $249 version of the Nexus 7 is projected to be far more profitable for the company than the $199 8GB model.
