New Nexus 7 goes up for pre-order in the UK, to ship from Sept. 13
Google finally launched its refreshed version of the Nexus 7 tablet but it seems that consumers in the UK have to wait a bit longer.
The new Nexus 7 tablet, like its American counterpart, has gone up for pre-order in the UK and while select retailers are offering the device, the shipment date is expected to be September 13. In the U.S., meanwhile, the new tablet will hit store shelves on July 30. This means that the new Nexus 7 will make its way to customers in the UK nearly one and half months after those in the U.S.
Retailers Currys and PC World have both listed the 16GB and 32GB models of the new Nexus 7 running on Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. The 16GB variant of the tablet is priced at £199.99 ($305), whereas the 32GB version will set consumers back by £239.99 ($367). The tablet is also up for pre-order on UK retailer Ebuyer for the same price.
The new Nexus 7 sports a 7.02-inch LCD HD display with a 1920 x 1200 pixels resolution and a pixel density of 323 pixels per inch (ppi), which the Android team claims is the highest for a 7-incher. Under the hood, it is powered by a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor. The feature that will excite plenty of customers is that the new features a 5-megapixel primary camera, something that was notably missing in the previous iteration. This will put the new Nexus 7 in a better position to compete with the iPad Mini.
At this juncture, it is not known if the Google Play Store in the UK will get the new Nexus 7 sooner than other retailers. At the time of launch, Google offered just a vague time frame for the tablet's launch in the country, saying that the tablet will reach the UK "in the coming weeks."
What's more, there's no word on the release of the 32GB 4G LTE version of the new Nexus 7 and this variant is not yet up for pre-order in the UK. In the U.S., Google is expected to release the 4G LTE model of the refreshed tablet in the following weeks, after the July 30 release of the other two variants.
