Apparently the Nexus 7 16gb is sold out just about everywhere, this is the only place I could find one other than on Google Play which says "shipping in a week" and adds tax and shipping charges making it about $232 otd.
Note: if you have tax for TD, then this deal is not for you***
Tiger Direct currently has in stock a refurbished model for $190. No tax for most and shipping is $3.50 ish. I wish I could have found a better deal, but I can't even find it in stock, much less on sale. You can also get 3.0% FW CashBack from to sweeten the deal a bit.
At first I was worried about buying a refurb, especially given the reports of some issues with this tablet, but I feel ok that any of these (mostly cosmetic) issues would have been fixed with the refurb process and I feel confident in buying this product.
I'm starting to wonder that if the stock of these is dwindeling, then possibly that means a new realease is coming soon? But I'm tired of waiting and this tablet is so good, its still a deal at $230+ (hence its sold out everywhere) I feel confident in the quality fo the deal at $194.
Hope this helps someone who was racking their brain searching like me.

***from their site: "TigerDirect.com or one of its affiliates has locations in Florida, Idaho, Texas, North Carolina, South Dakota,Georgia and Illinois the appropriate tax rate is charged for any order shipping to these states". so NY and CA are (for once) eligible for the no tax discount
Again, new ones are at the cheapest $230 with tax and shipping from google. Yes it is refurbed and yes with only a 90 day warranty. Maybe not a HOT deal, but a decent deal if you are wanting one now. Craigslist is also a viable option... but you are getting it for 16% off and this is about the only place that even has it in stock. I can't even find one on CL for less than $225
