Sales of Google’s brand new Nexus 7 tablet have resumed this morning for the 16GB flavor. After launching a few weeks ago and seeing a huge amount of interest, the larger 16GB model priced at $249 quickly sold out. Today however Google’s listed it back as “In Stock” and it will ship in 3-5 days.

This is great news because many have been opting to buy the larger 16GB storage option, as 8GB isn’t enough for many users that don’t live in the cloud. Personally I’ve been fine with my 8GB model, but not everyone has my needs. Meanwhile the 8GB model is listed as in stock just as it has been since launching two weeks ago.

I’m sure you all know plenty already, but if not that $199 gets you the 8GB model complete with a 7-inch 1280 x 800 resolution HD display, and a powerful quad-core processor under the hood. All those budget tablets have some serious soul searching to do now the Nexus 7 is here. Whether Google has sold more 16GB versions, or just didn’t have as much stock remains to be seen, but hopefully they’ll announce some sales numbers here shortly.

If you’re for some odd reason still on the fence, check out our Nexus 7 and Jelly Bean review. Also late last week Google finally started taking orders for their official Nexus 7 cases. So you’ll want to snag one of those while they’re still available to protect your investment. Enjoy those Nexi!
