Has anyone gotten the new Google tablet? It is sold out in all the stores I looked at, even Google website has it on back order. I was looking to get the 16GB @ $250.00. Since they are on backorder and I don't buy until I test I'm just going to have to wait. They may miss out in a sale if Apple comes out with a 7inch at about 250.

I was going to try hard to get it BUT since there are more tablets coming also from Amazon and B&N as well as Apple, I am waiting.

I don't think any one resource will have lots of the Nexus available soon. Walmart and BB never got any initially so that tells me there aren't lots available to go round.

There is a resendant member here on MR who has one. For some odd reason he posted it under the "News" section.

He seems quite helpful, you can fire him off a question on his thread.

I heard that some retail stores were selling them early.

I think that Gamestop was selling their pre-orders early. However, if you didn't pre-order, you didn't get to buy one.

I ordered one and it should arrive tomorrow. So we shall see.

I got the notice saying mine had shipped, but UPS tracking doesn't agree. Per that site, it has a label but not been picked up. I'm hoping the tracking system is pooched and i get mine tomorrow or the day after.

I'm attempting to cancel my order from Google Canada since I was lucky enough to find the last one in a store.

Coincidentally when I saw my email on the Nexus 7 for the first time there was an update from Google Canada telling me that the 8GB tablets had shipped but the 16GB would be another 1-2 weeks.

Oddly, all the tablets that have already been sold at places like London Drugs, Staples, etc. here in Vancouver, have been the 16GB models.

Coincidence? I think not

On an unrelated point (and why I'm here tonight)...

Has anyone figured out how to transfer a non-protected epub from a PC to the Nexus 7 and have it show-up in the default book App? I know it can be done with 3rd party readers but I can't find a way to do it with the default.

The 8GB is only available from Google. It will not be sold in B&M stores. If i don't see an arrival date listed by UPS in the AM, I am going to go out and buy a N7 locally and refuse the shipment when it does arrive.

I have had bad experiance with UPS, loosing a phone twice. And once a Whole wharehouse up in Fort McMurray went missing... (inside job), have had similar problems with Purolator having issues.... Which is Why I follow up on tracking like crazy. Puts my mind at ease and also gives you an idea of when its being delivered... In the end I think it will get there no issue... I am kinda flying blind for my delivery of my Nexus as I bought from Staples and they inhouse deliver and it has no tracking number etc.

Good luck

Shrewd move on Google's part. Sell the far more profitable 16GB model only in B&M stores; where most people will purchase the Nexus.

Well, my N7 is in Illinois and is scheduled for delivery on the 23rd. If I can find one locally today, I'll buy it and refuse delivery. If the charge is not reversed when I get our chare card bill, I can dispute the charge, though Google Canada has said to just refuse and they will take care of the rest.

I would normally be more patient, but when I bought the device I bought 2 day shipping, which this is not.

EDIT: No N7s in Red Deer today

I know of another MR member who got one of the free "golfball dimpled" white Nexus 7 units given to people who attended the Google I/O conference.

I am looking forward to that 5-core Kal-El (Tegra 3) processor when I get mine. No microSD slot really sucks bad though, so I paid the extra $50 for the bigger internal flash memory device.

And Google thanks you. That price bump is almost pure profit.
