Retailers jump the gun: new Nexus 7 on store shelves and online today

It has been confirmed that Best Buy and Amazon are shipping any Nexus 7 orders being placed right now, so if you choose one day shipping from Amazon, you could have your new tablet on Monday, or you can opt for Saturday delivery and get it tomorrow. Certain Best Buy locations and Walmart locations have also put the tablet on store shelves, but not all are breaking the street date, so you may want to call first before running in.
Other retail partners like B&H, RadioShack, GameStop, OfficeMax, and Staples all seem to be sticking to Google's launch date of July 30th.
The new Nexus 7 tablet is offering a solid speed boost, and a big jump in the display resolution over the original, and it starts at just $229. Some call this a premium over the original, but you should keep in mind that when the OG Nexus 7 first launched, the 16GB version was priced at $249, while the 8GB model was $199. So, you might even say Google has lowered the price on the new generation.
- Display 7.0" 1920 x 1200 pixels
- Camera 5 MP / 1.2 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro, Quad-core, 1500 MHz
- Storage 32 GB
- Battery 3950 mAh

Contemplating whether I should hold off a little or sell my OG N7 on Craigslist and put a few extra dollars on buying the new one.

I just got one from bestbuy. Man this thing feels nice in the pocket compared to the old Nexus 7 it replaced; you can really tell the difference! And it feels and looks like a premium product compared to the original. Good job Google. Tablet of the year boys and girls!!! Scratch that; gadget of the year!!!
