The search engine giant was surprised by the volume of customers who chose the pricier edition of the Android device over its 8GB counterpart on Google Play, according to The Telegraph.
The Asus-manufactured slate has proven equally popular on the British high street, though some retailers such as John Lewis and Dixons still have a limited amount in stock.
Google's Nexus 7, powered by a Tegra 3 quad-core processor and 1GB of RAM, does play host to a low-grade front-facing camera for making video calls via applications like Skype.
Hosting an impressive 1280 x 800p HD display, the slate will be the first device to run Google's next generation Android 4.1 Jelly Bean operating system.
The Google Nexus 7 is available now, priced at £159.99 and £199.99 for the 8GB and 16GB models respectively.
