The hottest tablet to get at the moment is the new Nexus 7 (2013) from Asus and Google, but with a retail launch looking to be in Early September and no word from Google on when it will launch on the Play Store, Australians are understandably looking elsewhere and Mobicity have just put up their pre-order site for both the 16GB and 32GB version.
The pricing for the Nexus 7 (2013) is set at $389.95 for the 16GB version or at $439.95 for the 32GB version. The tablet is available for pre-order only at this stage and Mobicity are liasing with their warehouse to get an exact ETA on when they will be in stock. Shipping is an extra $24.95 on top of these prices.
There is no word on the LTE model, however I’m pretty sure that Mobicity will be waiting on the release of the European version of the LTE Nexus 7 (2013) before making any decisions on whether to offer it or not. Keep your eyes out, we’ll update if Mobicity begin offering that model.
If you want a Nexus 7 (2013) this far out from the official Australian launch, then you can certainly check out Mobicity to place a pre-order. Pricing is a little on the high side, but Mobicity offer their own local warranty to alay concerns over importing. Asus does have international warranty for the Nexus 7, at least according to their support website for those looking to import via other methods.
UPDATE: Mobicity has advised that the new Nexus 7 (2013) in both 16GB/32GB capacities are due to arrive in their warehouse tomorrow.
