Instead of waiting until July 30 for that new Nexus 7(s goog), you could get one a few days earlier. The Verge confirmed with one local Best Buy(s bbuy) location that the tablets are in-stock and available now. I verified with my local Best Buy stores and all of their locations on Best Buy’s web site are showing as selling the slates now.

Those who ordered from Google Play will have to wait until early next week for their devices, which are priced at $229 and $269 for 16GB and 32 GB Wi-Fi models respectively.

Nexus 7 stock Best Buy

Is the tablet worth the money? Based on my early impressions of a review unit, it’s a great value at these prices, comes with the latest Android 4.3 software and has many improvements over last year’s model including a stellar, 1920 x 1200 resolution display.

  1. Unfortunatelly BestBuy is misleading its customers. I just returned from a store that claimed to have the Nexus 7 available, but at they said it will actually arrive next week the earliest. It’s just disappointing

  2. Disgruntled Apple User

    I couldn’t be happier to hear the news. The iphones are over hyped and apple has no customer service. I had an andriod before and switched to the iphone. Worst mistake ever. The are pricy to purchase and even more costly to replace. I had my andriod for two years and never had a problem. Had my iphone for 4 months and mositure took out my phone, didn’t even get wet. The price, I am going back to andriod or trying the galaxy.
