Google Begins Shipping Nexus 7 Pre-Orders to U.K. and Canada

Last week Google began shipping out the Nexus 7 to lucky customers in the U.S. while our friends up north and across the pond had to sit back and wonder when they would get their turn. Well, it looks like your up to bat folks! If you live in the U.K. or Canada and have placed an order for a N7, be on the lookout for a shipping notice from Google. We are getting reports from people who say they had gotten the notice late last night and Google has even added the following message to the Google Play support page:

We’re now shipping Nexus 7 preorders. All US and Australia preorders are scheduled to ship by July 17th. UK and Canada preorders have also begun shipping in waves.

If you consider the two-day shipping for the device, I would expect N7’s to land in the U.K. and Canada on Thursday and Friday of this week. One thing to keep in mind, though. Shipments are being sent out in waves so if you didn’t place your pre-order soon after the announcement I would guess your device hasn’t shipped quite yet. The folks who placed an order on day one and two are probably those who will see the device this week, but I imagine all orders should be on doorsteps by end of next week. I know, the wait is killing you, huh?

Do you live outside the U.S. and have received a shipping notice? Let us know in the comments below!

    One turned up in the office, here in the UK, this morning. Everyone’s been trying it out!

    It seems that the time you ordered is irrelevant. I ordered on the 27th while the Keynote speech was still on, and I’ve not had any kind of update. People who ordered a week later have had dispatch notices though.

    Thanks Google :(

    I ordered on the 27th at about 9:30pm and haven’t had any emails apart from the order confirmation one. Surely I’d be amongst the first day batch to send out?

    I ordered mine on the 27th of June and i haven’t received one email. I’m livid because if i knew the demand for the Nexus 7 was going to be easily accessible in the local stores, I probably would have waited and brought it outright. NOW, they are starting to ship for Canada and UK and i STILL have not received mine yet! UNREAL! I hope i receive that email today because that is completely unfair and intolerable!
