Nexus 7 2013 Australian Pricing (And Where To Get It)

When Google announced the 2013 edition Nexus 7 last month, there was no word on Australian availability. Fortunately, that changes today: the Nexus 7 is going on sale down under.

This time around, the initial sales won’t be through the Google Play store, but via JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith and Harvey Norman (plus a handful of smaller retailers). Stores are being stocked from today, but it could take up to a week before they’re widely available across all those chains.

So what are we paying? The 16GB Wi-Fi version costs $299, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model is $339. No sign yet of a SIM-equipped version; for now, you’ll have to stick to a 2012 model if you want that.

In the US, the prices are $US230 (16GB) and $US270 (32GB). That converts to around $257 and $302 in Australian dollars at this moment. Add on GST and you’re looking at $282 and $332 — so there’s a slight ‘Australia tax’ on the 16GB model and an even slighter one on the 32GB. Not something, I’d suggest, worth getting massively worked up over.
