Nexus 7 stock shortagesWe have been hearing rumblings of a certain Nexus 8 for a while now, and for those unfamiliar, the Nexus 8 is said to be a new tablet from Google that is made by HTC. That being said, could we be getting closer to an official release? Well some have speculated that could be the case as the Nexus 7 on the Google Play Store has been listed as out of stock.

The Google Play Stores affected by the out of stock status are both the US and UK stores, so we’re not sure if other Google Play Stores around the world are experiencing a similar shortage as well. However like we said, this has prompted speculation that this could mean that Google could be looking to launch the Nexus 8.

It is unclear at this point in time if the Nexus 8 will be replacing the Nexus 7, or if it will be in addition to the Nexus 7, however the out of stock status has suggested that Google might be thinking of replacing the Nexus 7, thus allowing it to run out of stock and with no plans to restock it anytime soon, or at least that’s what we assume.

According to the rumors, the Nexus 8 is said to sport an 8.9-inch display and will feature a 2048×1440 resolution. It is also rumored to be powered by a 64-bit NVIDIA Tegra K1 processor and will be accompanied by 2GB of RAM, and will come in 16GB or 32GB storage options. Take it with a grain of salt for now, but we’ll keep our eyes peeled for more info.
