UPDATE: Many readers are reporting that the Nexus 7 is now on backorder from OfficeMax and that the coupon may not work any more. That being said, the website still indicates that the tablet will ship in 1 to 3 days. Let us know if you have any luck getting the discount.

There's no doubt that Google's Nexus 7 has been exceedingly hard to find since its launch. From nebulous shipping schedules to stock problems at brick and mortar stores, customers everywhere have had a hard time getting their hands on the device.

Luckily, it has been discovered that OfficeMax has Google's hit 7" tablet in stock (shipping in "1 to 3 days") for $219.99 when you apply a coupon code over the phone. On top of that, OM is offering free shipping (though customers will of course still have to pay tax on their order).

Even if you don't want to order over the phone, it's good enough news that OfficeMax has the Nexus 7 in stock, something that can't be said even of Google's Play Store, which still lists the 16GB variant as "coming soon."

Those who want to grab the 16GB Nexus 7 with the discount need only call 1-800-283-7674 and use the coupon code 212100210618.
