Nexus 7 tablets to ship in the coming days


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!]

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Hello Quentyn, I think you meant week not ween. :) Thanks for the heads up.

    1. I was curious how they were going to ship a ween :-o

        1. I am the stallion…mang.

  2. As of this moment, no one on this ridiculous thread on XDA has received shipping info from Google, including many people who ordered during the keynote.

    1. Haha, I’ve been following that one for a while. It really does suck that stores are getting them already and they haven’t shipped them to pre-orders yet. It must be taken into account that they told stores to hold them… but not all are.

  3. Glad to hear. I ordered on the 28th so I hope I see a confirmation soon!

  4. I ordered during the keynote as well and haven’t gotten any such email. (16gb version and case)

    1. Ditto I ordered as soon as it was live while they were talking and I have not gotten an email either :( Also I ordered the case and 16 GB

  5. I just wet myself. I’m also excited about this news ;)

    1. It’s a little 7″ tablet. Sure the price is awesome, but what’s so exciting about a little toy?

      1. Personal preference. I’m coming from a bulky (IMO) 10″ Acer A500, which was nice but the way I use it the size was a bit much to lug around. Prior to the Acer I owned a Nook Color and the size was right however the speed and OS upgrade options were not.

  6. Cannot wait to get my 16 GB model! Just installed 4.1.1 Jelly Bean over the air to my Galaxy Nexus. Excited to use it on my Nexus 7.

  7. I’m fully ready to taste that butter.

    1. It’s definitely Paula Dean’s jelly beans

  8. No email, GRRR

  9. Will it be sold in any stores? I doubt it cuts much into the the iPad and Kindle Fire sales if it is only sold on google’s website especially when they charge nearly $20 to ship it.

    1. what are you talking about? you can walk into Sam’s club and buy them right now. pisses me off cause I pre-ordered mine like most here and the first people getting them are the ones who didn’t pre order. AND they are $5 cheaper and you don’t have to pay shipping. SMH…

  10. I just ordered a 16GB nexus 7 I can’t wait to get my hands on it!!! I have a nexus s anyone know when I’m going to get that 4.1 jelly bean?

  11. Ship the damn things already Google, if stores already have them thats bullshit@!

  12. I should just cancel my order. I’m leaving town for 3 weeks tomorrow morning. probably better off just picking one up at Sam’s club on my way out tomorrow. Not sure if its possible to cancel the pre order though.

  13. Oh yeah!

  14. People are already playing on it! Never buying from Google again! I’d rather go buy an Apple or the new Kindle Fire than you slow-moving idiots!
