Good news folks. We have just been notified that all Google Play Store Nexus 7 pre-orders are shipping now!!! No need to get out the pitchforks because Gamestop didn't follow the rules. Google has confirmed that pre-orders for their brand new tablet are shipping to all starting today. For more information the phone number and details are after the break.
Google has a phone support line -- I'm not sure too many people actually know this. The Play Store has one as well and a few users have just tipped us off (after getting angry that Gamestop was already selling tablets) that the Play Store customer support line's automated number has also confirmed this news. The Nexus 7 tablet is shipping right now from the Play Store, and all current orders should be shipped within 3 business days.
The support line now has an automated recording confirming the details and you can hear the glorious news yourself if you'd like. Start by calling 1-855-83-NEXUS (63987). They specifically mention 3 business days. So that means some could possibly be waiting til Tuesday before they even ship, but at least we all now have a firm date to look forward to.
Update: Google has confirmed the devices are shipping now with a post over on Google+.
Let us know if/when your order ships by dropping us a comment below!
