Talking tech since 2003

Are you living in the United Kingdom and have been eagerly awaiting the release of the popular second generation Nexus 7? Well, I’ve got some excellent news for you – a couple of weeks ago I reported that retailers had given the new Nexus 7 a September 13 release date, however it now appears that ASUS has other plans for the tablet in demand. ASUS representatives have confirmed to Engadget that the new Nexus 7 will actually be launching to UK based retailers significantly earlier than expected on August 28th – a full two weeks earlier than we first believed.

ASUS has also confirmed the pricing for the Nexus 7 overseas. The British will be forced to shell out £199.99 for the 16GB WiFi model and a whopping £239.99 for the 32GB WiFi model, with the LTE version sitting noticeably absent for the time being. That’s almost $100 more than what Americans have to pay for each respective Nexus 7 model, a seemingly silly price hike even given the UK’s infamous VAT rates. Still, if you’re eager to get your hands on a 7″ tablet with a gorgeous 1080p high-DPI display, Android 4.3, and a back-facing camera it’s a small price to pay for the privilege.
