The Google Nexus 7 tablet can be pre-ordered from the Google Play Store, but the Android 4.1 tablet is not going to be an exclusive to the online marketplace
. Carphone Warehouse in the U.K. has already announced that it will be offering the 32GB variant of the tablet. And now, Gizmodo Australia
has listed a number of locations in that country where the tablet will soon be found such as Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith, Bing Lee, The Good Guys, Retravision, Radio Rentals, Officeworks, EB Games, Costco, BSR and authorized ASUS resellers.
In Australia, the 16GB version of the Google Nexus 7 will cost $319 Australian Dollars instead of the regular $299 to cover the cost of shipping the tablet into the country
. ASUS has confirmed this in a statement. And if you guys in Australia think that you'll get around this extra $20 Australian Dollar charge by ordering directly from the Google Play Store, forget it. Google will tack on to any order heading to Australia, the same $20 Australian Dollar shipping and handling charge.
