The Nexus 7 made its way to many a happy customer on Tuesday. The strange thing is that Google did not ship the tablets in the ordered in which they were purchased. Some orders that were placed during the first week of July were well on their way to their destinations, while orders placed during Google I/O sat in limbo. If you’ve found yourself in the latter category, you will be relived to know Google has listed specific shipping windows for all Nexus 7 pre-orders.
Here’s a bit of good news. If you live in the United States and pre-ordered a 16GB Nexus 7 without any accessories on or before July 11, Google will ship it out by July 19. Google has also decreased the shipping time by attaching overnight shipping to those orders. Orders placed after July 11 will be shipped by the end of next week.
If you ordered an accessory along with the Nexus 7, your order will ship this week. You may not get everything at once, but everything will be shipped this week.
Anything ordered after July 13 will ship based on what was displayed on the Google Play page when the order was placed.
Below you’ll find Google’s statements to orders placed from Canada, the UK and Australia.
We’ve shipped all Nexus 7 8GB orders. We are in the process of shipping Nexus 7 16GB orders and will ship them in 1-2 weeks.
In the UK:
