We’ve gotten more than a few reports to be confident enough to inform you folks that Google seems to be shipping the Nexus 7 tablet starting this ween and early next week. Some users are getting confirmation that their orders will ship either today, tomorrow, or July 16th, the first business day after the weekend.
Most reports we’ve gotten say standard 2-day shipping is in order so things should arrive no later than the middle of next week for most. This would tie-in perfectly with Google’s initial mid-July launch window, though there was reason to believe that devices wouldn’t begin shipping until July 19th.
Perhaps that date was for orders not yet placed as of the time of that posting. Either way, some users will find nice hardware at their doorsteps starting next week. [Thanks to everyone who sent this in!]
