Nexus 7 pre-orders now shipping


According to the Google Nexus twitter feed pre-orders for the Nexus 7 tablets have begun shipping, the rhyming tweet dropped last night. They haven’t updated the Google Play entry for the Nexus 7 but this tweet is the next step and now all we need are emails from Google with Tracking numbers.


As I pre-ordered whilst the keynote was happening I was also expecting to see my shipping confirmation email from Google in my mail box this morning, however I have received nothing as yet. My Google Wallet page remains static. Let us know in the comments when you placed your order, if you’ve been charged and most importantly if you’ve received a shipping notification.

Update :
Just checked the Google Support page it has a statement on device pre-orders:
When will my preorder ship?
We’re now shipping Nexus 7 preorders. The first wave of orders are going out today and all additional preorders are scheduled to ship within the next few days. :

Once your order has shipped you’ll receive a confirmation email and tracking number. Though our agents are unable to provide a specific delivery date for individual preorders, please rest assured that our shipping team is working to fulfill all orders as quickly as possible.

Not sure why everyone is having issues. I ordered mine on the 16th and received it on the 19th here in Sydney.

Haven’t had much of a chance to play with it but it looks the goods so far.

Just received my Nexus. FedEx are pretty damn good. BRB having fun with new toy (and it’s really not that hard to get out of the box)

Just got Google’s shipping notification. My Nexus 7 will be delivered on July 20 (Friday). Some of you guys should get this soon if you haven’t got any updates.

– Delivery location: Melbourne
– 16GB ordered on June 30.
– Credit card charge disappeared a few days ago and re-appeared on July 17th.
– FedEx notification received on July 18 for July 20 delivery.

GET EXCITED!

Got my tracking # from Fedex 5 hours ago. I preordered mine on the June 29th (16G). My account was charged earlier today. ETA = July 19, by 5 pm. Destination = Melbourne.

Greg

Mine had ETA July 19, 5pm Melbourne. Now it says “Package received after FedEx cutoff” – ETA = July 23, 6pm.

Not impressed – I’ll have it for about 96 hours before I could have walked into a store to pick it up.

Same -.- Hoping it will come today!

It seems that FedEx is busy scanning the shipping label for the items departing for Melbourne/Sydney

Craig Blackstock
Valued Guest

Yes, FedEX have really screwed this up. According to their tracking, shipped 17th but missed the cut-off. Sat around in Hong Kong all yesterday and will allegedly be despatched tonight. Delivery date now 23rd although it may arrive here in Melbourne tomorrow (I doubt it, FedEX you clowns!) so I plan to head over to FedEX’s DC on Saturday morning to collect. What happened to the two day shipping, Google???

Craig Blackstock
Valued Guest

Update. Mine is now allegedly on the truck coming out for delivery today. Actually received a follow up call from FedEx letting me know that is is on its way. They have 2.5 hours.

Craig Blackstock
Valued Guest

FedEx. I take it all back. Has just arrived!!!

Craig Blackstock

FedEx update. Mine is now in Sydney.

Jacob Wood
Valued Guest

Same with mine (the cut-off date). According to FedEx mine is in “ALEXANDRIA AU”, hoping it will arrive in Brisbane today 🙂 Even though it is set for the 23rd

Craig Blackstock
Valued Guest

How’s your update looking, Jacob?

Jacob Wood
Valued Guest

Still waiting, should be here tomorrow!

Updated tracking just moments ago. Would seem that these Nexuses (Nexii?) are most definitely shipping out from a distribution centre in Hong Kong. Was actually hoping for a quicker turnaround if it had originated from Singapore instead. Oh well, that would probably mean an extra half-day at the most to the delivery time…slightly bummed, TBH :/

So guys, in “My Orders” on Google Play, Nexus 7 (16GB) is showing as ‘complete’ and the date has changed to July 16, before it was June 29 (the date I pre-ordered).
Would this mean it got shipped yesterday!? 😀

My card has been charged but no email notification.

I’m way too excited.

Midnight last night or this morning (July 17th). Still waiting for shipping notification. Ordered this on June 30. I could see Google was moving forward on this shipment since the credit card charge disappeared last week and re-appeared today.

Just got my shipping email. Pre-ordered a 8gb on the 2th july. Shipped at 3pm 16th july. I am not complaining with 15-17 days when initially it was an expected 3-4 week wait. Now its just the 2 day wait as it wings its way from singapore. Play customers in Oz I think will still be the first to get hold of their N7’s.

im not too happy with google. been trying to cancel my preorder now for about 2 weeks and not had any feedback or anything. I really dont know what else to do as ive used every form of communication i can find for their play store.

I dont really mind if I get it but just annoying that they have ignored me as I want to cancel as i can get a better deal elsewhere.

seriously. This is all your own making, nothing to do with Google.
