Google Nexus 7 U.K. launch penciled in for July 19th
Play Store is the only place to get the cheaper 8GB "Amazon Kindle Fire" killer which is priced at £159 GBP ($246.05). According to the online applications store, both models will ship in 2 to 3 weeks. That would be after the July 19th date listed by Currys, and widens the possible U.K. launch of the tablet out to a range of July 22nd to July 29th.
Until we get an official date from Google, let's just say that the Google Nexus 7 will launch in the U.S., Canada and the U.K. before the end of this month. This way, short of a complete breakdown on ASUS' part, everyone will be happy when they receive their pre-order or buy it when it goes on sale.
