Google Nexus 7 now shipping in the UK, but not from the Play Store
In terms of impact, the Nexus 7 is, without doubt, the device of this summer. The $199 7-inch tablet packs offers incredible value, and all the reviewers, with almost no exception, have praised it as a game changer.
Customers seem to agree. The Nexus 7 has been flying off the shelves and many American retailers have ran out of stock by now, just a few days from its official launch. But the first Google Nexus tablet is also selling in the UK and Australia. The device has already started shipping down-under, while in the UK only Ebuyer shipped out pre-orders last Friday, with other retailers shipping the tablet today. But Google Play Store sales are yet to be honored.
According to The Inquirer, the Nexus 7 is now available for purchase from the websites of retailers Currys and PC World. The two retailers have the device in stock, but only in the 16GB version, which goes for £199. On the down side, those who pre-ordered the device from the Google Play Store will have to wait – shipping is expected within “one to two weeks”.
