New Nexus 7 now said to be ‘guaranteed’ for delivery on August 24 in the UK
So far, the new Nexus 7 with 1080p screen and Android 4.3 has only been on sale in the US. The UK should get it soon, though. Many retailers over there have already started taking pre-orders for it. The release date we initially heard about was the rather disappointing September 13. However, in the meantime one retailer claimed that it would get first stock as soon as August 28.
That almost sounded too good to be true, but now that same retailer is at it again. We’re talking about Ebuyer. In its most recent promotional email sent to subscribers, it claims that the new Nexus 7 is now guaranteed to be delivered on August 24. You can see the bold claim, complete with bold orange background, in the image below, which has been extracted by Eurodroid from the aforementioned email blast.
We’re assuming that a well known retailer such as this wouldn’t make a promise like that without being able to deliver. So it looks more and more like the new Nexus 7’s official release date in the UK could in fact be August 24 (since it’s unlikely that this particular company would have an exclusive on the device for even a few days).
If you’re interested in securing that delivery date, you should probably pre-order a new Nexus 7 from Ebuyer as soon as possible.
