Android 4.1 Jelly Bean updates to Nexus S phones on select carriers Friday night, but unfortunately earlier in the week the company announced that it was having some trouble keeping 16GB Nexus 7 tablets in stock. As a result, the 16GB Nexus 7s now have an estimated delivery time of 3-4 weeks when shipping from the Google Play Store, so unless you're okay with picking up an 8GB model instead, you might be left waiting for a Nexus 7.

DigiTimes claim that Google is encouraging its hardware partners to consider new tablets and netbooks that run Android 5.0, unconfirmed code name "Jelly Bean", in the second quarter of this year.
