Nexus 7

Prices start at A$299, tablet 'due to arrive late August'

Australia is to be in the first wave of countries to get the new Nexus 7 following the U.S. launch, and now we have some more firm details as to when we can expect the tablet Down Under. Ausdroid has spotted the first Australian pre-order listing for the device at PLE Computers, where it's "due to arrive late August."

Prices start at A$299 for the 16GB Wifi model, A$339 for 32GB and A$439 for 32GB + LTE. It's interesting to see that the LTE version is listed with the same arrival date as the Wifi-only tablets, as this model has yet to go on sale anywhere else, including the U.S.

While there's no official Australian pricing from Google or ASUS yet, PLE's prices loosely track what you'll pay in the U.S. — with the addition of sales tax and a small mark-up.

Meanwhile in the UK, it's possible the Nexus 7 could make an appearance from late August to mid-September, depending on where you order.
