Google Wallet now available for Nexus 7. Makes far more sense on a phone; but hey, whatever.

Good luck!

PS...and in case anyone was wondering, the $25 GooglePlay credit is something you get when you set-up and activate the device and all Nexus 7 get it--at least at the moment. "Transformers" and the "The Bourne Dominion" also come with it. The $25 goes into your GoogleWallet. There is no advantage in buying direct from Google.

Yeah, that puts a dent in the money Google paid me for the AdSense clicks on my website.

They don't have any here, at least not today. I believe that initially the 64 LD stores got 260 something units in total. None at Staples here today either.

According to this: http://www.androidauthority.com/goog...tralia-101742/

All pre-ordered 8GB nexus 7's have been shipped, but the "accessorized" versions (such as the 16GB model that I ordered) will not start shipping until July 19.

(cross-posted because relevant to discussion in both threads)

I'm in the UK and my 16gig model (Ordered June 28th) is waiting for me at home. I'm a heavy iPad and Kindle touch user but I've always wanted to find out how well the 7-8 inch form factor works for me in a tablet. I already like Android so it was a no brainer ordering one of these. Very keen to get home now and try it out.

My 16GB N7 was shipped this morning at 3:AM and was "out for delivery" locally by 9:AM. 6 hours to get from google onto my local delivery truck, and now nearly 7 hours sitting on that truck (not delivered yet).

I was able to find 1 at the FutureShop in town. Picked it up after work and started to play with it. Will have to figure out the best way to load my books to the device.

Ken, I have Calibre server set as a location in Aldiko for my DRM free ePUBs and use the Kobo app for kepubs. Not with the N7, but for this sort of thing, a tablet is a tablet.
