Google Nexus 7 now shipping in the UK, out of stock in US

Google’s first-ever branded Android tablet, the Nexus 7, has begun shipping in Blighty, we can confirm.

Customers who reserved the device from Currys and PCWorld should recieve their units in a matter of days, with a next-day delivery option available at an additional cost. However, the retailers are currently only stocking the 16GB version for £199.99.

To grab the 8GB edition, punters will need to head over to Google’s Play Store, which is ranging both storage variants. The snag is there’s a much longer ETA of one to two weeks.

Unfortunately, for our cousins across The Pond, the Nexus 7 appears to be already out of stock in most locations. Though it’s also a telling sign that the time for Android slates could finally have come.

Announced amid much fanfare last month, the Nexus 7 is designed to be an affordable, more portable alternative to Apple’s iPads, offering a seven-inch 720p IPS display and an NVIDIA Tegra 3 quad-core processor with a 12-core GPU to play or work on the go.

It’s also home to a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, Near Field Communications and the latest Jelly Bean iteration of Android installed out of the box.
