We’re well aware that Google is looking to launch a new Nexus tablet in the coming weeks. And given the imminent arrival of a successor, it’s not unexpected for the current flagship tablet to slowly go out of rotation. And that seems to have already begun if the U.S. Play Store is any indication.
At the moment, the American Play Store only has stocks of the 32GB GSM LTE model, with the AT&T/T-Mobile LTE versions as well as the WiFi only variants listed as “out of inventory”. Is this a sign of the obvious or are we reading too much into it? Hard to tell for sure at the moment, but it has surely gotten us thinking about the successor arriving soon.
Google is expected to join forces with HTC for the alleged Nexus 8 tablet, which could be unveiled at the August 19 event scheduled by HTC. So we’ll hopefully know more about HTC and Google’s plans in the coming weeks.
