Update from Google on Nexus 7 shipping status
We know you are all keen and eager and wondering where your shipping notices are for your pre-ordered Nexus 7. So are we.
Some got them, some didn’t. So, Google have nicely given us an update to explain what is going on:
We’ve had incredible demand for our new Nexus 7 tablet and are shipping them as quickly as possible. When your device ships you will receive a notification from Google Play with a shipping tracking number. We will have all orders placed through July 13 processed and shipped soon. Orders placed after July 13 will ship according to the quoted timeframe when you purchased and we will update you with a tracking number when we’ve shipped. Thanks for your patience.
Google then goes on to confirm specifically for Australia:
All Nexus 7 8GB and Nexus 7 16GB orders will be fulfilled by the end of day on July 19 (AEST) and will arrive in 3-5 days.
So there you have it, like most hotly desired items, once you have them in your hands the long wait is all forgiven.
And this time next week, you should be doing just that.
