First piece of news is that Staples Canada has started to take pre-orders for the Google Nexus 7 tablet. The price is the same as if you ordered it through the Play Store, looks like they only have the 16GB version for $259 outright. Next, Google said the Nexus 7 would arrive sometime “late July,” but gave no commitment of when. Thankfully Staples Canada has posted an estimated date of Monday, July 23rd.

“Pre-order your Google Nexus 7 Tablet to reserve one of these limited quantity tablets. Estimated sku release date is July 23, 2012. Your credit card will be charged at the time of shipment.”

No word on how many they have… but Jelly Bean is almost here.

    Order it from Staples.ca and get free shipping on it…save $20, why not? nothing on the $25 Play Card tho….but you never know

      Yep – now just hoping someone carries the 8GB version, so I can save on shipping costs.

    Didnt staples try this with the asus tf300t and get the date horribly wrong and left people waiting on their pre orders for a few weeks while every other store already had them?

      You’re just greedy!! But that’s ok… I forgive you. Unless my pre-order is delayed, then it’s WAR!!

  • Sandman2749

    I called Google today to try to upgrade my order from the 8 gb to the 16 gb but they told me it was too late because the shipping process had already begun! Looks promising!

  • Google fan

    I also called google to add a tablet to my order and he said they already shipped my order to UPS. I asked when the estimated delivery date was and he said next week.

    • Mark

      I hope your not screwing with us. I don’t want to get my hopes up and have them crushed when my Nexus 7 doesn’t arrive :-(

  • Canadian Resident

    Screen resolution is incorrect on the site specs. Lists it as 2080 x 800 (supposed to be 1280 x 800).

  • J

    Thats good news, but brown? i hope thats not the only color option. Oh well, no big deal.

    • Grzegorz

      Sigh Seriously? Why can’t they come to the east coast too? Don’t they realize that plae tckeits cost alot? And that North America is a HUGE continent? It’s bad enough I have to miss out on E3. I really wish I could go. For all those that do go, have fun! I’ll just have to buy the cd!

  • Adam

    Both Future Shop and Best Buy list the 16GB Nexus on their sites. Shows an August 10th availability date.

  • loreley

    if i order from google store, when does it arrives? do i have to present my credit card at the time it arrives? or someone can receive it for me? HELP!!

  • Shingo

    Sounds quite reasonable.I codlun’t help but noticed that almost always the last sector has its data checksum marked as BAD in DiskMonTools. That’s because it is not read completely, reading just stops after 16200 bytes, and breaks somewhere in the middle of sector data.
