Staples Nexus 7 listing indicates July 12th-17th ship date

Wondering exactly when you’ll be able to get your hands on the $199 Nexus 7? Staples may have a good indication. The retailer has thrown up a listing for the tablet on its website, promising that the Nexus 7 will be delivered sometime between July 12th and the 17th. The listing also notes that the tablet will arrive “no earlier than July 13th,” which may indicate a retailer embargo for the product.

If that turns out to be the case, then you can probably expected some shipping notification emails to start heading out sometime next week if you’ve pre-ordered through Staples. If that is indeed the case, expect the same to happen for Play Store pre-orders. UK retailers, meanwhile, will be receiving shipments for the 16GB version of the tablet from July 20th for a retail date of July 27th.

The Nexus 7 comes with a 7-inch 1280x800 IPS display, NVIDIA’s quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 1GB of RAM, 8GB of storage, and a 1.2-megapixel front-facing camera, all for $199. A 16GB version is also available for $249, but there’s no expandable storage on either model. The tablet is also running the latest version of Android, Jelly Bean. If you’re still not sure whether to whip out the credit card and order one, make sure to check out our review of the tablet and Jelly Bean.
