Though Google and ASUS haven’t made a comment on the matter, German site AndroidNext has done some digging and believes they have uncovered the date of the Nexus 7’s launch in continental Europe. After being tipped off that Saturn store in Berlin would soon have the Jelly Bean slate in stock, it didn’t take long to receive confirmation that the Nexus 7 would hit the retailer’s shelves on September 3rd in its 16GB option. Apparently pricing hasn’t been finalized, but it is currently listed at 249 euro.
The news comes by way of store reps at a flagship Saturn store, and without the official seal of approval from Google we should still view the date as a rumor. It is pointed out, however, the timing of the release and its proximity to IFA, a global tech show held in Berlin during the first week of September. It certainly would be a good week to host the European launch of the Nexus 7.
