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!
