Google announces refreshed Nexus 7, shipping to Canada “in the coming weeks”


  • Lukeiphone

    Will existing Nexus 7 tablets receive 4.3 update?

    • jackjiarocks

      Nexus 4, 7, and galaxy nexus will start getting the updates from today.

    • Mark

      And Nexus 10. 🙂

    • jackjiarocks

      Oh yeah. Forgot that 🙂

  • Nadefrenzy

    I’m actually impressed.

    Now gotta wait for the iPad mini retina to compare, but I have a feeling I’m going to end up getting the Nexus…

  • Mark

    Drooling at Chromecast….

    • Mark

      Chromecast is $35. Wow.

    • rgl168

      I’ll definitely pick one up for $35

    • Graham Wilson

      Yes, I found that to be the most interesting part of the press thing, at least from a “would I buy / use it” perspective. Looking forward to seeing pricing/availability in Canada.

    • Josh Brown

      Take my money, please! X2

  • WoodenPickle

    Any word of a price drop for the existing models?

    • Mark

      They’ve already been discounted in recent weeks at retailers. I picked up an old N7 for my mother days ago at $40 off at future shop.

    3g or lte version price not revealed.

    • alphs22

      “There is also a single LTE option for $349 for use on AT&T, T-Mobile and Verizon”

    • Sanjay Kumar

      Thank you.
      I didn’t notice that due to over-excitement.
      this is the first device which has lived up my expectations.

      Checked on gsmarena, it has hspda 850 900 1700 1900 2100. so I can use my wind sim on it.

  • S2556

    So excited to check out this chromecast dongle (and for $35!?!??!) New N7 looks awesome too and at an amazing price like usual. Will be picking up both once available in Canada! 😀

  • Fawoo

    Wished that it would launch sooner but I guess that’s the usual price us Canadians have to pay for devices.

    I wonder if anyone is truly going to have a worldwide launch date.

  • Nadefrenzy

    Why not? I’m pretty sure they’ll be announcing the new iPhone and iPad 5/iPad mini retina in fall of this year…

  • saqrkh

    Sign me up for the LTE version!

  • IanDickson

    Have my Tab 2 7.0 up for sale, to help pay for a 32GB model. It will be a birthday/christmas present to myself. 🙂

  • Samuel Scott

    wish it would come out sooner in canada im gonna get it for my birthday its either this or ipad mini 2 dont know howthey compare

  • Samuel Scott

    i hope the ipad mini 2 is crushed by this or else ill be indecisive again

  • Bitekr

    lets hope it will be available next week. i do want this puppy. i own z10 and i love it and it will be awesome to own both platforms

  • Chubber

    Oh, nice, maybe the glass in this one won’t crack when you look at it the wrong way. Doubtful though.

  • Sandie

    I am an impatient Canadian – Can’t wait till it’s in Canada! !
