New Nexus 7 may hit Australia in Sept
blog Wondering when the new version of Google’s Nexus 7 tablet will hit Australia? You’re not the only one. The previous model proved a hit with Australians, and with new cameras, one of the best tablet screens on the market, better speakers, and a thinner and lighter build, the new one looks set to do the same. Well, we don’t have any inside information to share, but according to Ausdroid, the new Nexus 7 may hit Australia as early as September. The site reports (we recommend you click here for the full article):
“We’ve received confirmation from both a source within Asus and various Australian Retailers and Asus Re-Sellers, who have been busily checking since the announcement, that stock of the tablet will be available in early September.”
That’s great news. Because the new Nexus 7 is looking like a winner. As The Verge notes in its review (or you can check out the same story at Gizmodo or Engadget): “There are plenty of people for whom the iPad mini is definitely the right tablet. But before you pick, look through the Play Store and see if you can find everything you need. Because outside of that discrepancy, the Nexus 7 is a better tablet than the iPad mini. It’s so comfortable in one hand, the screen is incredible, and its performance is virtually flawless. Android itself has even developed into a great tablet operating system, in many ways better than iOS.” Word.
We suspect that the new Nexus 7 will also be available online through Google’s Play store. We recently picked up a Nexus 4 ourselves, and it was quick to deliver to Australia. Of course, you may also want to check out Kogan’s online store in a month or two, as the Melbourne-based retailer has offered nice discounts on Nexii products which we’ve taken advantage of in the past.
