I’m pretty confident that most of you planning to buy a new tablet this summer are considering, or at least have considered at one point, buying the Google Nexus 7 once it hits the market. A Tegra 3 powered tablet for the price of $199? It’s quite difficult to turn down this kind of deal.
But, the Nexus 7 is not the best tablet in the world. It simply offers a great value for money, and in case you are amongst those who are still planning on getting one once it goes on sale, there’s not much more time to wait. Even better, those of you who reside in Canada can now pre-order the device from Staples Canada. Check out the details after the break.
Google Nexus 7 Release Date in Canada
Indeed, the Google Nexus 7 is now available for pre-order at Staples. Unfortunately, the downside is that at this point in time only the 16 GB version is available, but if the beefier Nexus 7 was the one you would’ve picked up anyway, then you’re in for a treat. The price remains the same as if you were to pre-order it from Google Play, so it will set you back $250. The 8 GB $200 version will most likely be available for purchase later on this month.
So, how much time will you have to wait before the Nexus 7 arrives? Well, according to Staples the release date of the device in Canadian stores will be July 23. It’s an estimated launch date and it’s apparently slated 4 days later than the expected launch in the UK, but it’s nothing certain. However, at least it gives us an idea on what to expect.
As for its specifications, in case you want to learn more about what the tablet can offer in terms of hardware feel free to check out one of our other Nexus 7 related articles and see what’s what.
What are your plans then? Are you grabbing the 16 GB version from Staples? Are you waiting for the 8 GB model to be available, or are you planning on buying a different tablet altogether? Let us know in the comments section below.
