It has been a crazy couple weeks for Nexus 7 pre-orders from Google. Google remained silent until late last week when it confirmed Nexus 7 pre-orders would begin shipping last Friday. Well today is Monday and we haven’t seen any indication that deliveries will be made today. Tuesday seems far more likely.
The XDA forums is the place to go to learn all kinds of information about the status of Nexus 7 pre-orders. A lot of what is posted is based on heresy and conjecture, but it’s also a source of credible information as well. We’re also able to independently confirm deliveries will be made on Tuesday.
Google started sending out shipping confirmations over the weekend. These confirmations also contained UPS tracking numbers that didn’t yield any information in many cases until Monday morning. After a few morning hours of no information, many customers (myself included) received updates that stated their Nexus 7 is sitting in Louisville, KY. The estimated delivery time is Tuesday by the end of the day.
This information is only good for U.S. orders unfortunately. Many customers from other countries are still waiting on new information.
