Nexus 7 refresh rumors have been on an uptick lately, with talk of HTC making a 9-inch Nexus tablet. Fuel has just been added to the fire, as only a single model of the Nexus 7 is still available in the ay Store.

The only option currently in stock is the black 32GB model with unlocked E capabilities. l other options detail read, “ are out of inventory. ease check back soon.” (The ay Store is still offering three months of free ay Music l Access streaming for its lone available device.)

Strangely, when you click on other E models, the ay Store often suggests an out-of-stock model. For example, when clicking the 16GB button while looking at the 32GB AT&T model, it suggests the 16GB Fi-only option, which is also out of stock. obviously needs to fine tune the auto-suggest system in the ay Store.


Consider tweaking those suggestion algorithms, . That model’s out of stock too. 

Nonetheless, early adopters could have reason to hope for a 2014 refresh of the Nexus tablet line, as many leaks have indicated an HTC device code-named Volantis or Flounder is on the horizon.

Interestingly, leaks from EVaks Android lice have both pointed to an HTC device using the 64-bit version of Nvidia’s Tegra K1 processor. The mystery device is purported to have an 8.9-inch display with a 2048-by-1440 resolution. aks suggest it could be a device with a more premium build quality than the current Nexus 7, with an aluminum zero-gap construction front-facing, stereo speakers.
