Nexus 7 in the UK

We've been seeing UK Nexus 7 pre-order dates for a while, but today we have confirmation that Google and ASUS' latest 7-inch tablet will be arriving on British shores around the end of August. The Taiwanese manufacturer has confirmed to Android Central that the official UK launch date is Aug. 28, which ties in with what some retailers have been saying. (Though curiously, PC World and Currys are still listing a Sep. 13 release date.)

Retail prices for the new Nexus 7 are set to be £199.99 for the 16GB model and £239.99 for 32GB.

New Nexus 7 hitting the UK from August 28

eBuyer are claiming to "Guarantee" a delivery date of August 24th (which conveniently is the exact day I want it), so something is still going on

eBuyer hasn't been totally reliable in the past, though. At least not in my experience. I'd take the word of someone inside ASUS as better collateral. Unless of course, eBuyer is sourcing their stock from outside the UK.

Did the Aussie LTE listing disappear? I was expecting to see the LTE version sooner rather than later because of it :(

Same in France. The local retailer boulanger.fr is confirming end of August delivery. Pre-order on its site has been live fro last couple of days

Hmm try Ebuyer because they deliver 24th or PCWorld because they have £10 discount. What to do what to do.

Ebuyer has tweeted a picture of them ready in their warehouse today so I see no reason why they couldn't deliver these for 24th.

Good to see Google has learned how to do currency conversion right, instead of just making 230$ to 230£.

Then add on VAT at 20% = £176

But yeah, some manufacturers of electrical products or computer components have just done a 1:1 conversion in the past. It bites.

And what about you? Your reasons for being here are:
1) To criticize others
2) To make unsubstantiated claims
3) To trade insults
4) To write crap
5) To show off that you are the most talented writer in the world. Do you possess a PhD in English Language? No.
Do they really help anyone? No.

Twig, never argue with a fool (pheelyks), he will lower you to his level, and then beat you with experience.

I am a writer with integrity, and writes for 20 private clients.

Wow. 20. They must all be really pleased at the barely passing grades you are able to earn with those ESL skills.
Twig:
1) To criticize others

Only when they deserve criticism. This site is devoted to exposing scam writers/companies, after all.
Twig:
2) To make unsubstantiated claims

Not at all. i substantiate my claims as much as possible, and clearly acknowledge when I am voicing suspicions rather than facts.
Twig:
3) To trade insults

I'd rather not, and actually "insult" other posters a lot less than they attempt to insult me. The fact that you take criticism of your language skills as an insult does not mean that it was my intent to insult; it is more evidence of your emotional state than of mine.
Twig:
4) To write crap

Like what, exactly? Is this the kind of lucid and well-thought-out statement you provide your clients with?
Twig:
5) To show off that you are the most talented writer in the world.

hi, no sorry it was very popular so im pretty sure they pulled it after a day or it was only applicable for 1 day (yesterday)

UK official supplier will receive NExus 7 2013 in their Warehouse on the 19th! (I know it because I buy from them!).
However I don't know when they will ship stock to retail store. I bought mine online on very.co.uk and my delivery date is confirmed on the 19th-20th...however If you buy it now on Very.co.uk they have a new delivery date to September as it looks the initial stock has run out! Shame I didn't know my supplier was stocking the New Nexus before I ordered mine!
