Google Play Store now taking orders for the new Nexus 7
Earlier today, we told you how some retailers had jumped the gun and were selling and shipping the new Google Nexus 7 now even though the tablet isn't supposed to launch until later this month. Even Google has thrown itself into the fray by sending out a tweet announcing that orders are now being accepted for the next Google Nexus 7. The tablet will ship by July 30th.

The 16GB model of the new Google Nexus 7 is priced at $229 while the 32GB model is priced at $269. The tablets come with a 7 inch display with resolution of 1920 x 1200. A quad-core 1.5GHz  Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro CPU is under the hood while graphics are handled by the Adreno 320 GPU. A 5MP snapper is on board and the tablet has support for NFC and wireless charging. Android 4.3 is installed.

If you can find one of those retailers that have started selling the Google Nexus 7 nearby, congratulations. If you can't find a Walmart or a Best Buy with the tablet already out on the shelves, you can always click on the sourcelink and order directly from the Google Play Store.

I bought the 2012 nexus 7 32gb version for 189$ (week ago), due to my current circumstances and the options I was limited to, it was the best tablet under 200$. (Australia still selling 32gb version for 269$, got myself a deal and 10$ discount from a friend who works there in a store). Is it a good buy?

The 2012 nexus7 is still a very good up-to-date tablet I don't think you'll regret your buy..

The only thing Apple is still GREAT at, marketing, almost across world wide availability ( excluding some smaller markets) when new products arrive. No other company can beat that at this point of time.

Samsung. Not only did they release the S3 on all the big carriers in the world, they also released it on all the top 4 carriers in the US. Apple hadn't even touched that until a few months ago.

I suppose the cost involving the world wide release is just mind boggling if you haven't got the supplier chain. Even google can not justify the risk.

Exynos 5 Octa was broken because it had a non functioning cache coherent bus. But I just read on Anandtech that it's been fixed on the new Exynos 5 Octa. This means tht battery life will be much better. I know it's unrelated but I am so exited!

Not in Europe. This is frustrating! Who's gonna buy the 2012 version now, really?
