Nexus 7 said to be shipping in the next day or two
Multiple reports have come out from various retailers, including one bit of info that supposedly came straight from Google, and it looks like the wait for the Nexus 7 may be just about over as the tablet could start shipping in the next day or two.

First, word came out from UK retailer Ebuyer that the Nexus 7 tablet would be out for shipment starting tomorrow. We were skeptical, and tried following up, but got no response. Now, the Ebuyer website is saying that the tablet won't be available until July 19th, which seems more reasonable to us. At the very least, we wouldn't expect any retailers to ship before Google. 

And, apparently, Google feels the same way. A Google support team member has been reported as telling coolsmartphone that no retailers are authorized to ship yet, but pre-orders through Google are in "pre-shipping" and that actual shipments should begin in the next day or two. 

So, if you pre-ordered through Google, you may be seeing your tablet pretty soon, since Google has been known to use pretty speedy shipping. If you've ordered from another source, we can't say when your tablet will ship.

I sent an inquiry about my pending order 3 days ago to Google, and just got a response in my email as I slept last night. This is the text of the email I received:

Thank you for writing in to Google Play Support. I am happy to inform you
that the Nexus 7 will start shipping on Thursday July 12th. It has been in
preorder so all orders were queued and will be shipped accordingly.

If you have any other questions feel free to reply back to this email.

What about your order info? Does that say it has been shipped?
