Your Nexus 7 pre-order may soon be at your doorstep

Good news to those who have pre-ordered their Google Nexus 7 tablets from Google Play. It seems like you will be receiving your device soon as an automated phone message on Google’s support line is saying that shipment for those who have pre-ordered the Nexus 7 have already begun.

The message says that pre-orders are scheduled to ship within the next three days. If your Nexus 7 tablet is shipped, you will receive an email confirmation and the tracking number of the package.

The Nexus 7 tablet is priced at $199 and is being pitted against the likes of Amazon’s Kindle Fire tablet and the Nook Tablet of Barnes & Noble.

The Nexus 7 is pre-installed with the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS and has access to all the apps in Google’s Play Store and from Amazon.

Compared with other tablets in the market, the Nexus 7 packs a higher resolution screen and a faster processor.

But if you check the Google Play page, it says that the Nexus 7 will be shipped weeks from now, specifically 1-2 weeks.

The Nexus 7 tablet was designed to have a better battery life. Google says that owners can enjoy up to 9 hours of HD video playback, 10 hours of web browsing experience and 10 hours of e-reading for one single charge.

Let’s see what Google has to offer then!

Google set to release Nexus 7 this July

Google Inc. is set to sell their first ever tablet this July hoping to barge into the tablet market, which is currently being dominated by Apple’s iPad.

Google’s entry to the market could help boost the development of tablet specific apps for their own Android software. Microsoft is set to follow in Google’s steps with their impending “Surface” tablet launch.

The Nexus 7, which is a collaboration between Asus and Google, was unveiled during the company’s annual developers conference.

The unveiling of the Nexus 7 tablet comes barely a month after Google acquired Motorola Mobility.

Google co-founder Sergey Brin was present during the event and demoed the Google Glass. The latter can livestream events and perform computing tasks. Google Glass is set to be priced at $1,500.

But what was on the spotlight during the conference was the Nexus tablet. It will be sold initially at Google Play online store, priced at $199. It is a 7 inch tablet that has a front facing camera.

Google director of engineering for Android Chris Yerga said, “Nexus 7 is an ideal device for reading books. The form factor and weight are just right.”

Google is offering the Nexus 7 to buyers, with a $25 credit that they can use to purchase app at the Google Play store.
