Will the Nexus 7 (16gb) still be available in Europe?

In the most European countries (except UK and DE if I remember it correctly) the Nexus 7 8gb isn't available, only the 16gb for a price of €250. But signs say the 8g is being replaced by the 16gb. Will Google sell the 16gb devices themselves and indirectly kill the 16gb in (most of) Europe or can shops keep selling the 16gb devices for around €200 ?

Many Dutch retailers sent an email that the people who ordered a Nexus 7 16gb will get a 32gb version because they had to wait so long. So does this mean they only get the 32gb version?

My opinion: I hope that Google gives retailers the chance to sell the 16gb version or (better) Google opens the Playstore for devices in Europe
