New Nexus 7 hitting Staples on July 31st for $249

We heard during Google’s Nexus 7 announcement that the tablet would be hitting Canada, along with other countries like the UK and Australia, “in the coming weeks,” but we’ll likely see it sooner than that.

A Staples flyer that goes into effect next week indicates Canadians will be able to purchase the tablet, which they are calling Nexus 7 FHD for “Full HD”, on July 31st.


No word on whether Staples will be selling the 32GB version, but it will presumably follow the same trend as the US model, which will bring the price to $289.

Google will sell the new Nexus 7 on the Play Store in the near future, but if you’re yearning for the FHD experience, you should be able to get one next Wednesday.

(Thanks Dave!)

    What about the LTE version?

      Should be exclusively on the Play Store like the 2012 one and probably $370

    I don’t understand why in the US it is selling for $230 but in Canada it’s $20 more please explain it to me when our Dollar is stronger.

      Our dollar isn’t stronger atm… but you’re right that the pricing is off. It’s currently trading at about 1 CAD = 0.97 USD

      Which works out to about 235ish.

    Damn. Don’t know if I can sell my tab2 in time. I remember staples doing this last Nexus 7 as well. Hmmm…might have to wait until later…when there are none available.

    I was going to hold out for a 32GB version, but really…most everything can be streamed OR handbraked. 🙂
