Last night, we learned that the first shipments of Nexus 7 tablets were already on their way out to some lucky pre-order customers, with expectations that they’d start arriving sometime today. That’s fantastic news for users whose orders were included in that first wave of shipments, but what about everybody else? Google got some updates to fill us in on just when all those other tablets will start going out.
You may not have received any update by email, but calling Google’s Play Store support line reveals a newly-recorded message informing us of how Nexus 7 shipments are going. According to the recording, all Nexus 7 pre-orders should ship within the next three business days. The messages references the first shipments going out that very day, so if it was recorded yesterday, we can expect the entirety of Nexus 7 pre-orders to ship by the end of business on Tuesday, July 17. On the other hand, Google seems to be publicly calling today the first day of Nexus 7 shipments (maybe those early ones yesterday were just a fluke), in which case all orders might not go out until Wednesday.
You won’t be able to get an estimate of just where your order falls in that lot before Google actually ships out your tablet, but once it does, the company will shoot you an email to inform you of this development and hook you up with your Nexus 7’s tracking info.
