nexus 7 2013 aa 18

Recently we reported that the Nexus 7 (2013) would arrive in Canada via Staples on July 31st. It seems we were a day off, as the 16GB version of the tablet has now arrived to Future Shop, Best Buy, Staples and several other Canadian retailers for the price of $249!

Now for the bad news: it seems that initial stock is quite low.

The device is already pretty much sold out online, so your best chance of getting the tablet is to trek on over to your nearest retailer. Additionally, retailers like Best Buy and Future Shop offer the option to reserve your device for in-store pickup through their website.

While you probably already know what to expect with the new Nexus 7, we’ll give you a brief recap just in case. The next-gen Nexus 7 is powered by a 1.5GHz Snapdragon S4 Pro and has 2GB of RAM. The display resolution is 1920 x 1200. Other features include a 1.3MP front cam, 5MP rear cam, dual back-facing speakers, wireless charging and a battery capable of delivering roughly 10 hours of use.
