The day we have all been waiting for has finally arrived. Yes, that’s right, Google has finally started sending out emails to those that pre-ordered a Nexus 7 stating that they have a package set for delivery on the way to their door steps. While I’m glad to have finally gotten this notice, I’m now even more anxious and being a ton more impatient than I already was.
I managed to get my email last night around 11:30pm EST. I know there were several people who got theirs earlier in the evening and to be honest, I was getting a little upset and worried. Mainly because a few of the people I knew that had already received their email had ordered 2 days after I did. I ordered within the first hour that the Nexus 7 had been announced. But eventually I got the notification from Gmail that I had been waiting for. As you can see in the image below, I’ve got a tracking number, but there is no expected delivery date. Even checking the UPS site doesn’t give any information at this time either unfortunately. This is only making me more anxious and maybe a little bit crazier than I already am! OK, no comments from the peanut gallery on that last statement!
While this email was great to see, I am a bit upset with Google for what they did, or what they allowed happen yesterday. As many people around the intertubes posted that they got the call from their local GameStop yesterday to come in and pick up their Nexus 7 as soon as possible. What ?!?! How did GameStop get to release the pre-ordered tablets to customers before Google released theirs to their customers ? This seems totally backwards to me and to be honest, I’m a bit angry. I truly believe Google messed up on this one. Anyone who pre-ordered on June 27th should have been the first folks to get their hands on the Nexus 7 other than those that attended Google I/O. There is no reason why another retailer should have released the tablets to the public before Google did. How do y’all feel about this ? Good, bad or just indifferent as far as you are concerned ?
Now another thing that I’d like to speak about is a post on Google+ I made just a short time ago. You can view it here: Google+ Post. I’d like anyone and everyone who reads this article to head over to that G+ post and leave a comment. I’d like to get as many of you as possible into a Nexus 7 circle, regardless if I have you circled already or not, as I’ve got some plans for that circle with regards to some upcoming stuff here on OMG!Droid. While I’m not giving out any details quite yet I can assure you it’ll be fun, interesting and will always involve Nexus 7 love! So if you’re interested to see what we have in store for you here at OMG!Droid, go comment and get circled TODAY! Oh, and don’t go asking the big boss, Tony Simons, for hints or clues. Because guess what ? He doesn’t even know what’s in store. He’ll have to comment and get placed in that special circle as well if he wants to know. And he’ll find out at the same time the rest of you do!
Again, I’m curious as to everyone’s thoughts about this whole Nexus 7 arrival ordeal that is going on at the moment. Let us know what you think below. Don’t forget to stay tuned to OMG!Droid for more Nexus 7/Jelly Bean mind blowing love!! We’ll keep you informed on everything as we get the latest word.
