When Google introduced the Nexus 7 tablet, Canadian folks were more than happy to find out that their country will be one of the few to be prioritized by Google for the initial launch of the Tegra 3-powered device, along with the U.S., UK and Australia. After weeks of waiting and anticipating, those who pre-ordered the Nexus 7 straight from Google have now received shipping confirmation of the tablet.
Aside from the influx of reports from customers who are now eagerly waiting for the Jelly Bean tablet to arrive at their doorsteps, the good news was shared by Google itself on its support forum, which provided the following statement: “We’re now shipping Nexus 7 preorders. All US and Australia preorders are scheduled to ship by July 17th. UK and Canada preorders have also begun shipping in waves.”
Despite the assurance, it seems the shipping confirmation was only sent out to those who plunked down some money in advance for the 8GB model of the Nexus 7. Customers who chose the more expensive 16GB model are still deprive of their confirmation email.
So we now turn our attention to our readers in Canada. Have you received any confirmation of when you’ll be getting your Nexus 7? Did you opt for the 8GB or 16GB model? How about folks in other countries, any sign yet of the tablet?
