New Nexus 7 launching in the UK on September 13, pre-orders now open
While customers in the United States will be able to get their hands on a new Nexus 7 before the end of this month, it looks like those of you overseas in the United Kingdom will have just a little bit longer to wait. Google was quiet as to when international customers would be able to purchase their own Nexus 7, but numerous retailers have now seemingly given us our answer; according to popular UK retailers Currys and PC World, Google will be launching the new Nexus 7 on September 13th.
Both retailers are now accepting pre-orders for the new tablet, and it’ll cost you a pretty penny to get your hands on one; the 16GB model will apparently run you £199.99, which is the equivalent of $306 USD. The 32GB model is even more ridiculous at £239.99, or $367 USD – that’s just under $100 more expensive than the cost of a new Nexus 7 in the United States.
Google has yet to confirm the news nor add the Nexus 7 to the United Kingdom’s Google Play store, however it is not uncommon for retailers to reveal the pricing and availability of new products prior to an official announcement by the manufacturer. The new Nexus 7 ships with a high resolution 1920×1200 7″ display, a quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 5 MP rear camera. It is also the first new device to ship with Android 4.3, the new version of Google’s mobile operating system.
