Nexus 10

The times, they are a-changin’. Following this week’s launch of the Nexus 6 and Nexus 9, Google’s Play Store is beginning to reflect the company’s shifting focus to sales of these new devices. Listings have arrived for the Nexus 6, Nexus 9 (for which pre-orders are now open), and the new Nexus Player (even if that’s outside our mobile-focused wheelhouse). But their presence hasn’t come without cost, as we see Google appear to kill-off sales of the Nexus 10 and 2013 Nexus 7.

Under the Play Store’s phones and tablets listing, you’ll now find the Nexus 5 (but for how much longer?), the Nexus 6, Nexus 9, and the GPe Moto G and One M8 – no more Nexus 7, no more Nexus 10. Pulling up one of those old URLs manually (like you’ll be able to do by clicking-through a source link below) drops you on pages for the Nexus 7 and Nexus 10 with pretty unambiguous messages: that these devices are “no longer available for sale.”

For the two-year-old Nexus 10, that makes enough sense, especially with a new pretty-much-nine-inch tablet. But seeing the Nexus 7 go away, only fifteen months into its lifespan, is an absence we’re sure will be felt a lot more acutely, leaving Google with a gap in its device spectrum. Then again, maybe the larger Nexus phone this year mitigates the need for a smaller tablet to one extent or another. It’s also curious to see Google halt Nexus 7 sales at the same time it continues to release all-new Android Lollipop dev previews for the tablet – maybe not quite a logical disconnect, but a little odd, all the same.

Join us in pouring one out on the curb for these tablets.
