    OMG reading this news got me all excited I refreshed my order page at least 10 times today.

    I hope this is all true and all signs do point to a release next week. I got my case and screen protector all ready and waiting and looking rather lonely.

    According to a couple members in a thread over on XDA who claim to have recently spoken to Google via the 1-855-83NEXUS number, Google received more orders than anticipated and as a result will potentially ship them out in waves, with people who ordered before July 1st, potentially getting their N7's early next week, and those who ordered after getting them later next week or earlier the following week.

    No idea on whether or not this is true, but its still an exciting possibility and I don't doubt that Google may be able to pull it off.

    Shipped early next week as in this Monday? That would mean delivery around Wednesday, two weeks. If you mean next Monday that would make it three weeks. I'd love to sign for it this Wednesday but I'll be surprised if it happens.

    I'm pretty sure what Asus is actually doing is manufacturing these 24/7 while shipping huge quantities of the tablet from China to the launch countries on ships, and that is guaranteed to take a while(About 12 days for the US). Add about 1-5 days for customs, then they gotta ship to warehouses around the country by truck so another day or two, and then distribution to your door, which is at about 2 days for US delivery. Gotta love logistics... So BEST case scenario is about 2 weeks for a tablet to get here. At this point Google hasn't even put peoples names on any yet so don't worry about being first or last in line. It's probably more of a regional distribution center thing than a country wide list

    That explanation certainly doesn't make me the most happy, but it does certainly seem the most logical

    This place will be FULL of crazy people when it starts shipping.

    You'll be like a bunch of GIRLS at a Bieber concert. :D

    As someone else here said though, the wait is one of the most fun parts about ordering new toys, next to opening them of course. Kind of a bummer when all of that anticipation ends though:rolleyes:

    I had a package com in today and didn't know what it was. Guy in the next cube thought it was my N7. :D

    That's the problem... you order something then a week later don't remember what you ordered.
