    I've been really struggling to find any reasonable information about release dates in the UK, and where the best place to order from will be.

    This is a thread for anyone looking to buy the 2nd generation Nexus 7 in the UK

    Quick question: Was the original Nexus sold directly by Amazon or was it only available via 3rd party sellers?

    I'm hoping that Amazon UK will sell the new version directly just like their US site

    Amazon sold it iirc, but it was a bit more expensive than buying directly from Google.

    Updated with latest dates and places to order from. It's available now if you want to take a punt, otherwise wait a couple more weeks (I'm waiting)

    Amazon is selling it directly (via the ASUS storefront) and also via other sellers. The ASUS one is standard pricing and the other sellers have applied their markup.

    Initial thoughts: brilliant screen, very fast. Bit of an odd long rectangular shape. It makes you want to use it horizontally rather than vertically like an iPad

    Thanks for the tesco heads up. Good price with points too.
    Not sure why people are a grieved by tesco. They aren't any worse than any other company lol.
    I work for a company who tries to show it is sustainable and brings things to the community and it's staff then lays off its staff and offshore the work to foreigners.

    I've paid extra to get so called service from more reputable dealers in the past and been woefully disappointed!

    I purchased mine from ASDA direct. It was a really good service despite being on a slight pre order (ordered on 29th and stated it would ship on the 2nd)

    Mine was despatched on Sunday 1st and was delivered on Monday morning by DPD. absolutely no problems (despite negative reviews left online) and love it to pieces!!

    IT is the same sort of price but as ASDA was not on the list here just thought I would bring it up ^_^
