New Nexus 7 release date is July 30 for Best Buy, alleged ad says

What looks like a leaked Best Buy ad seems to indicate that the new Nexus 7 will be launched next week, on July 30.

A few days ago, a similar leak suggested that Staples will start selling the new tablet on July 31, with shipments coming in as soon as July 24, which are to be kept under locked until launch.

The new Best Buy ad, discovered by Phone Arena, says the tablet will start selling “Tuesday.” Considering that next Tuesday is July 23 – and Google’s media event during which we believed the new Nexus 7 will be announced takes place on July 24 – it makes sense to assume that Best Buy would launch it a week later, on July 30.

The publication says that according to the tipster who sent the image, the Best Buy flyer is set to run next Sunday, or July 28.

While the July 30 date is implied rather than explicitly confirmed, the ad does clearly list the device’s price and some of its specs. We’re looking at a 16GB new Nexus 7 version that packs a 1920 x 1200 display, and costs $229.99, a price in line with previous leaks.

Furthermore, the tablet is listed as “Google Nexus 7” and the device is apparently also shown in the ad, and marked as a “new” arrival. For what it’s worth, the device has a different wallpaper than the first-gen Nexus 7’s, similar to the current wallpaper of the Nexus 10.

That said, we’ll have to wait for Google to announce the tablet to get official details about its launch.

  • Excited, day one purchase for me. I think that resolution at 7″ will be incredible and hopefully the color depth will be spectacular as well.

      One other impressive tablet to launch this week is the Pipo M7 Pro ($255) that for about the same price as the Nexus 7 II, features a much larger 8.9 inch display with 1900×1200 screen resolution, a Quad core processor, along with built-in GPS navigation… and is packed with other features and the latest technology that compares to the new Nexus — There’s also an 8″ Android model similar to the mini iPad that became available last week – the Pipo U8 ($195) that’s almost as compact in size as the Nexus 7″, but features 65% more screen space in its 8-inch form, which truly makes a difference in user experience… both new Android tablets are available through T ab l e t S p r i n t– which also offers $25 in Bonus Apps, including an Office Suite App and several premium 3D Games, including the popular Shadowgun–

    With that resolution, if there’s a back camera, or at least 2 GB of RAM, there won’t be much stopping me from buying this, once I get rid of my Galaxy Tab 2 7.0

  • Definitely want. Going to have to wait til September when I can afford it, though.

  • Balraj

    I hope it arrives in India by October
    I’ll ditch my Samsung tablet for it :-D
