Last week was all about Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet, and it appears this week might sing a similar tune. The tablet started shipping from a few UK retailers early last week, then hit the U.S. in a flood from Staples, Gamestop, and then Google. They confirmed all pre-orders would ship within 3 business days. Today however the same could be starting for the UK.
The Android developer community friend and familiar name Paul O’Brien has confirmed this over on Twitter. Stating that his UK Google Play Store pre-order for the Nexus 7 has finally been charged, and shipping is imminent. While this technically is news, when Google stated all pre-orders would ship within 3 business days they could have meant for all — not just the US.
We know the U.S. news had a few UK readers asking questions, so this should confirm for those who’ve ordered from Google themselves. We originally heard July 20th for the UK. If you’re in that region and pre-ordered with Google on their Play Store have you received a shipping confirmation yet? Feel free to drop us a line in the comment section below. Oh and in case you missed it, the Nexus 7 received another small OTA update last night. Users will be greeted with a few updates out of the box.
