Fans of Google's latest 7-inch tablet in the UK will be waking up to some pretty sweet news. The 2013 version of the Nexus 7 has now arrived on their shores in both 16 GB and 32 GB variants. And it seems that our friends from Japan are also getting the same treat.

Early this month, we reported on a tip that the Nexus 7 will arrive in the UK by August 24. That date was later pushed back to the 28th, which ASUS confirmed. That has now become a reality and consumers in the UK will be able to get their hands on this tablet. You can read our review of the Nexus 7 to understand why we think that this is a very good thing.

It seems that Japan is also getting their Nexus 7 today. However, this is not the the 32 GB LTE-compatible model that was earlier leaked. That one is still set to come mid-September, and hopefully, the US release will follow soon, if not at the same time. No pricing details yet available for the Japanese Nexus 7.

The price for the 2013 Nexus 7 starts at 199.99 GBP, around $310, for the 16 GB model while the 32 GB variant costs 239.99 GBP, roughtly $370. A bit of a price bump from the previous Nexus 7 but is definitely worth the upgrade.
