While the Nexus 7 started shipping today in the United States, Aussies will have to wait until the end of the month before the tablet will be available here. That doesn’t mean you can’t sort yourself out now with a pre-order and while you’re at it, save a bit of cash on the purchase. To that end, which shop should you be hitting up for your Nexus 7? .
Ausdroid has done the hard yards contacting a number of popular retailers, including Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi and Officeworks, to find out when they expect the tablet and at what price point. It turns out EB Games will be the best place to grab the 16GB version of the tablet at $298, if you’re prepared to pre-order now and pick it up once it’s out.
Where you probably don’t want to buy it is Betta Electrical, with one outlet quoting $399 to Ausdroid.
Most places pegged July 27/28 as the release date, although WA’s PLE Computers supplied an ETA of June 25.
Of course, you can buy it now directly through Google Play, with the 8GB model priced at $249 and the 16GB at $299.
