Both Nexus 7 Models Are Out of Stock Ahead of Cheaper ReplacementsS

We're not getting that big Android event we were supposed to get today, but it looks like things are still moving along somewhat as planned. But while Google may not show off its shiny new tablets in person today, the old models are now out of stock at the Google Play store, clearing the way for the new ones, whenever they come out of hiding.

This, of course, lines up with all the previous rumors, including the introduction of a new 32GB Nexus 7, the announcement of a 3G model, and a price drop on the 16GB, bringing it down to $200. Hurricane Sandy may have put a damper on the Android event proper, but it looks like the wheels are still turning behind the scenes, getting everything in place for whenever the announcement does happen. Hopefully it's soon. [CNET]
