Nexus 7 (2013) pre-order starts at $299 in Australia, to launch in late August
The Nexus 7 (2013) is available for pre-order in Australia from a local computers retailer, but not from the Google Play Store.
According to Ausdroid, PLE Computers lists all three Nexus 7 (2013) models and says the tablet will be launched by the end of August, without actually revealing a release date for the device.
The Wi-Fi models retail for $299 (16GB) and $339 (32GB), while the 32GB LTE Nexus 7 (2013) costs $439. These prices are in Australian Dollars, which converted to U.S. dollars amount to: $269, $305 and $395, respectively.
It’s not yet clear whether these will be the same prices Google will use for its new Nexus 7 tablet in the region, so you may as well wait a while instead of hurrying to purchase one.
The publication reveals that PLE Computers has three stores in Australia, where you can pick up the device free-of-charge on launch day, but the retailer will also ship the tablet anywhere in the country, with shipping charges starting at $14.08 (again, Australian Dollars).
For what it’s worth, the store also has the old Nexus 7 in stock, priced at $269 (Wi-Fi version) and $339 (3G version) – which converted in U.S. dollars is $242 and $305, respectively.
Let’s hear it from our Australian readers, are you buying the newly announced Nexus tablet?
