Nexus 7 (2013)

Best Buy and Walmart among stores selling the new tablet early

The new Nexus 7 won't be officially available until July 30, but that hasn't stopped some of the big-name brick-and-mortar retailers from selling a few tablets to customers ahead of the official date. AC reader Tony Hoffman tweets that both he and a friend were able to snag new Nexus 7s from two different Walmart stores. And The Verge is reporting that Best Buy is now selling to customers in some stores, including at its Union Square location.

There are only a few more days left before the official Nexus 7 street date, but if you're hoping to get one in time for the weekend, you might want to check your local retailers. If you've been lucky enough to pick up a new Nexus 7 already, hit the comments and let us know how you're liking it.
