Late last week we saw a retail leak coming by way of Staples suggesting the 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.
Anyway, this latest comes by way of a leaked Best Buy weekly circular that is said to be prepped to run the week of July 28th (next Sunday). As you can see in the image, it has the Nexus 7 listed as being available on Tuesday. Based on the calendar, that would have the Nexus 7 available with Best Buy beginning on July 30th. The Staples leak suggested the availability date as July 31st.
That being said, it is entirely possible that Best Buy will have it available on the 30th and that Staples will have it available on the 31st. Of course, it seems more likely that one (or possibly both) of these retailers may need to make some date adjustments. And just as a reminder, that Google event is scheduled to take place on July 24th so it seems both of these retailers as well as any others will have some time to prep for the launch.
Otherwise, the only other tidbits coming from the Best Buy circular show the tablet as having a 1920 x 1200 display and 16GB of internal storage. The price is shown as $229.99, which is inline with earlier leaks. Those earlier leaks also have a 32GB model coming in at $269.
Some of the other still unconfirmed specs include Android 4.3 along with a 7-inch display, quad-core 1.5GHz processor, 1.2 megapixel front-facing camera and 5 megapixel rear-facing camera. There was also talk of the tablet having support for wireless charging and a “Slim Port” that will allow for 1080p HD video output. We had also seen talk of the Nexus 7 arriving with 4GB of RAM.
