New Nexus 7 UK pre-orders now live with mid-September arrival

Yesterday, we saw the official unveiling of the new Nexus 7, and it'll be arriving in the US on July 30. However, while the tablet would be coming to the UK, there was no word on when that would happen, exactly. According to a couple of UK listings, though, the Nexus 7 will arrive in the UK on September 13, and pre-orders are now live.

Both Currys and PC World have the new Nexus 7 up for pre-order, priced at £199.99 for the 16GB version and £239.99 for the 32GB flavor. Both the tablets list a September 13 release date, but folks in the UK are able to pre-order the tablet right now at either one of these retail establishments.

Obviously, this is a long wait for UK folks to get their hands on the new tablet -- almost a month and a half late, to be exact. While consumers in the US have to wait a few days for release, they have it easy, while those located across the pond will have to wait it out for a significant amount of time.

Obviously, though, the date they have listed may be subject to change, but seeing as how both Currys and PC World were launch partners for the original Nexus 7, we'd be surprised if the listings were wrong. There's also no sign of a 4G Nexus 7 model, so it could be that an LTE variant is an even longer way off.

The new Nexus 7 sports the same 7-inch display as before, but comes with a much higher resolution of 1920x1200, making it the most pixel-dense display of any tablet currently on the market. The new device also runs on a quad-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz and comes with 2GB of RAM on board.
