Google speaks out about Nexus 7 pre-orders
On its support web site, Google assured customers in the UK that 8GB Nexus 7 tablets ordered from the Google Play store will be shipped by 20 July.
“All Nexus 7 8GB orders will ship by July 20 (BST). All Nexus 7 16GB orders placed through June 30 (BST), will ship by July 20 (BST). The remaining Nexus 7 16GB orders will ship next week,” the post reads.
This news will come as a relief to customers, as it emerged earlier this week that Currys and PC World had already started shipping the Asus built device – a kick in the teeth to those who ordered from the Google Play store immediately after the device was announced.
However, those who didn’t eagerly pre-order the device earlier could be left waiting for their tablet to show up, as Google says that it has seen “incredible demand” for the Nexus 7, adding that it’s working to fulfill all orders “as quickly as possible”.
