The Nexus 7 situation has admittedly been a frustrating one. While some people have already received their brand new Jelly Bean tablet, others are left wondering if or when theirs will arrive. Google has definitely been feeling the heat from upset customers and has issued an update for those of you who ordered your Nexus 7 on or before July 13. While this information won’t get the Nexus 7 in your hands any quicker, at least it can shed some light on when you can expect it to arrive.
Google has broken down the information by country, so here you go:
In the US:
We’ve shipped all standalone Nexus 7 8GB orders (e.g.: those without a case, charger or Nexus Q). By the end of day on July 19 (PDT), we will have shipped all standalone Nexus 7 16GB orders placed through July 11 (PDT), and upgraded these orders to overnight shipping. We will process the remaining standalone Nexus 7 16GB orders by the end of next week with overnight shipping.
If you ordered your tablet with a case, charger or Nexus Q, your Nexus 7 will ship this week with overnight shipping, in some cases ahead of the rest of your order. But don’t worry, the rest of your order will be on its way soon.
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:
All Nexus 7 8GB orders will ship by July 20 (BST). All Nexus 7 16GB orders placed through June 30 (BST), will ship by July 20 (BST). The remaining Nexus 7 16GB orders will ship next week.
All Nexus 7 8GB and Nexus 7 16GB orders will be fulfilled by the end of day on July 19 (AEST) and will arrive in 3-5 days.
There’s no news for those of you who ordered after July 13, but rumor has it that Jason Voorhees will hand deliver it if you don’t calm down and relax. I’m sure it’ll hit your doorstep soon, but in the unfortunate event that it doesn’t, Google wants you to contact them at 1-855-83-NEXUS (63987).
