Google recently started shipping the device, but multiple retailers have already reported that they are sold out and need to re-stock.

GameStop needed to pull the tablet from its website, and Adorama and Staples are both waiting for additional inventory since the device sold out so quickly.

GameStop has been able to fulfill some of its Nexus 7 orders for customers who agreed to pick it up at one of the company's retail locations. It is now offering more orders on the device that are expected to be fulfilled on August 7.

Adorama, a New York retailer took to its Twitter account earlier today to announce that the Nexus 7 had sold out and that it was shipping its stock based on orders received. The next batch of Google tablets are expected to reach Adorama in the middle of August.

Staples also reported that it sold out of the Google Nexus 7 on its website and asked customers to check back between July 14 and 18, stating that additional units might become available then.
