Nexus 7

We've seen the availability of the Nexus 7 go from 'coming soon', to 2-3 weeks, then 3-5 weeks, but now a quick look at the ordering page for the 8GB Nexus 7 shows you it's sitting in stock, and will be delivered in 3-5 business days. Android fans in the US have been a bit rabid about not getting their tablets when they expected to get them, but demand has seemingly outweighed availability and many, like Phil, are waiting and waiting for a delivery date. Hopefully, this is a sign that the 8GB version will soon be in the hands of all who ordered. Now we need to see the same for the 16GB version.

In a week or two, when all the smoke has cleared, all us "early adopters" will be using and enjoying our Nexus 7s. I've been lucky enough to have mine for a while, and it's quickly become my go-to device for most things. For gaming, web surfing, or reading, the Nexus 7 fits my lifestyle perfectly. I can't wait to see other folks telling me how their Nexus 7 does the same for them. 

 Thanks for the tip, Jasmin!

8GB Google Nexus 7 now listed as 'in stock' on Google Play


So people who order now will get their Nexus 7 straight away. While I ordered on the 27th before the keynote in Google IO had even ended and I've not had any notification of shipping even.

I ordered mine on the 27th just before 2pm EST. I received mine today. UPS normally delivers to my house between 12 and 2pm. Unfortunately, I had to go to work and (you guess it) UPS decided to be late today. 3:11pm to be exact. Meanwhile I had to be at work at 3:30 which is about 45 minutes away. Needless to say, my Nexus7 is at home waiting on me. Long story short, you should be receiving yours soon. I got a notice yesterday evening at 5 something saying it was shipping and received it today. When I ordered my Galaxy Nexus, I received that the next day after receiving the shipping notice too.

I ordered the 16 GB when Google Play had it listed as shipping in 1 to 2 weeks. I want to believe that this change of 3 to 4 weeks applies to orders placed from now on and not to all orders.

I don't see any way on my phone, but if you go through It's the last choice on the left.

Select "Play" from the black menu bar.

To get to the Play Store in a pc browser.

Ordered one for my dad's upcoming birthday yesterday. When I placed the order, the site said 1-2 weeks until they ship. Got it in the mail today. Craziness.

Thank you BobbyTheNinja,
As soon as I finished reading the link you posted, I got a gmail with the same link lmao!
Me too I ordered on the 7th.

I would like to know what kind of people are buying the 8GB version.
The 8GB Nexus 7 has less than 5.6GB remaining open for the user.

I think it's more like 5GB+, still, I'd probably go 16GB. I'm giving one away as a gift this Christmas and even then I'm tempted to go 16GB, it's not cheap at $50 more (should be $25) but worth it IMO.
