Google Inc’s “Nexus 7″ tablet is off to an encouraging start, with major retailers running out of the gadgets as the Internet company’s first entry in an increasingly crowded market showed up in U.S. stores on Friday.
GameStop said on Friday it had already run through its first two allocations of the tablet, co-developed by Google and Taiwan’s Asustek that starts at $199 and has drawn glowing reviews from major gadget reviewers.
Sam’s Club, the warehouse chain owned by Wal-Mart Stores Inc, and Staples listed the device as being out of stock on their websites as of Friday. Office Depot’s website continued to offer the device for sale as of the afternoon.
