Google now sells the new Nexus 7 in a total of seven markets, with three more to follow.

    It is a good day to be a Nexus fan – after Google slashed $100 off the price of the Nexus 4, bringing it down to an unbelievable $200 for the base version, the company has now extended the availability of the Nexus 7 (2013) to several new markets.

    Starting today, the Nexus 7 (2013) can be bought from the UK Play Store starting from £199 for the 16GB version. The same model goes for €229 in Germany, France, and Spain, the three other European markets where Google sells devices through the Play Store.

    Customers in Japan, a market where the original Nexus 7 was very successful, can pick up the new generation of the 7-inch tablet for 27,800 yen, which is the equivalent of $286. If you’re wondering about the price disparities between countries, it all boils down to local taxes and duties.

    With today’s expansion, Australia, India, and South Korea remain the only markets where Google has yet to offer the Nexus 7 (2013). Customers here can find the device at local retailers, but usually at a higher price than what Google asks for it. While we have no official info on the availability of the new Nexus 7 in these countries, it’s hopefully not too far away.

    Thanks to its crisp display and sleek design, the Nexus 7 (2013) impressed our Joshua Vergara, who reviewed it here:

    That’s not to say that the Asus-made tablet doesn’t have its share of shortcomings, though Google is working to fix them.

      Nice! An awesome tablet. But why do i have the feeling that the 7″ screen is too small to watch movies.

      • End in sight

        I have the first gen nexus 7 and it is the perfect size for me.

    • Rasmus Hansen

      When will it hit Denmark?

        Posted a little too early there.

        There are many countries not in that list, where on earth did you get that thought? If it’s sold in Germany or France, doesn’t mean it’s sold in “Europe”…

      J’ai récupéré ma tablette Nexus 7 2013 hier soir à la Fnac (pré-commandée début Août) et après l’allumage, une mise à jour du système m’a été proposée pour me faire passer en build JSS15Q censée régler le problème d’écran.

      Le tactile marche toujours mal et il arrive fréquemment qu’il faille cliquer une seconde fois sur l’écran pour que ce dernier prenne en compte la demande. du coup, j’ai laissé le clic sonore du clavier pour être certain de détecter lorsque la frappe n’est pas reconnue.

      Ça pose de gros problèmes dans les jeux d’adresse (Temple Run, Real Racing 3…)

      Autre problème détecté, l’écran freeze régulièrement. Il faut alors appuyer sur le bouton home pour débloquer tout ça et repartir ensuite dans l’application quittée.

      J’espère que ce problème d’écran pourra vraiment être corrigé via un VRAI patch logiciel car sinon c’est SAV direct ou remboursement car je ne tiendrai pas longtemps avec ces problèmes de réactivité.

      Pour le reste, ce n’est pas trop mal même si les boutons ON/OFF et ceux de volume sont mal placés et qu’il n’est toujours pas possible (ou je n’ai pas trouvé) de masquer la barre de menu Androïd pour profiter de tout l’écran comme je peux le faire sur mon Minix X5.
