unveiled the new Nexus 7 during their 'breakfast' event yesterday and while they were pretty forthcoming with details of a US release, there wasn't much said for those in the UK. With that in mind, it looks like some UK-based retailers have begun listing the tablet for pre-order. There are a few listings available at this time, however while the pricing appears consistent the same cannot be said for the shipping dates.

Nexus 7 promo videos. This one has been posted on the 'googlenexus' YouTube channel and measures in at just shy of 1 minute and 30 seconds. Perhaps the more important aspect here is how the video doesn't dive all that deep into the specs and instead focuses on a real-world use case.
Nexus 7 has been announced. And nicely, it looks like we can now begin calling it the Nexus 7, as opposed to the Nexus 7 2. The breakfast also brought details of Android 4.3, but for now how about we concentrate on the tablet itself. After all, this Nexus 7 refresh does bring some worthwhile changes. Talk of this new Nexus 7 began with a mention of how they were "staying focused on the same things that made the original so successful."
breakfast has yet to begin, however it looks like the details of the new model Nexus 7 have all been revealed. The tablet appeared in a frenzy of leaks last night and ended this morning with pre-orders coming available with a few retailers including Best Buy. Those pre-orders already look to have sold out, but that simply means those who have yet to jump now have time to consider the purchase. Basically, we are taking a look at the new Nexus 7 as compared to the original Nexus 7 tablet.
Nexus 7 2 leaks seem to have gone into overdrive last evening and those were apparently followed up with some pre-order availability. The pre-order listings have just recently begun showing up and while we expect more will follow, we currently have Best Buy and PC Connection taking orders. There is also a listing with Sam's Club, however that points to a not yet available in-store listing.
Samsung has officially released a "Student Edition" of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet. This is essentially a bundle pack that includes the tablet along with a desktop dock and Bluetooth keyboard. And in addition to the bit of extra hardware that ships with the tablet, Samsung also has some app related perks for those planning a purchase.
Nexus 7 2 would be available beginning on July 31st. While we have yet to learn the official release date from Google, it looks like this week has begun with another leak from yet another retail store. This latest is coming from Best Buy and has the tablet coming available a day earlier than with Staples.
Nexus 7 2 leaks are beginning to pick up in pace. Earlier this morning we saw a bit of talk about the specs and now it is looking like the release date has been revealed. We should point out that this has yet to be confirmed by Google or the retailer, in this case Staples, however it does show some dates that are starting to line up. This recent Staples leak points towards two dates.
scheduled for July 24th and it is believed that we will see Android 4.3 introduced alongside the next-generation Nexus 7, a device that up until now seems to have been dubbed the Nexus 7 2. Whether that name will stick remains to be seen, however it does appear as if the specs and pricing are being pieced together little by little.
Toshiba announced a trio of tablets back in early-June. The models included the Excite Pure, Excite Pro and Excite Write. At the time Toshiba announced the full set of specs, the pricing and even had the tablets available in June. The catch with that last part, the June availability was limited to the Toshiba website. They did however promise that additional retail availability was coming in July.
