UPDATE: Google Nexus 7 2 goes on sale 27th of August in the UK, costs start at £199 – now available

Innovative peripheral manufacturer Asus has revealed the UK arrival date of the Google Nexus 7 2013 edition, along with its costing.

Asus, the manufacturer responsible for the new Nexus 7, has said at a London press event – the tablet will be available from midnight of Tuesday the 27th of August, although it officially goes on sale on the 28th.

That will mean some shops will be staying open, as the clock turns from midnight to a second past (on the 28th) – where it can actually sell the device.

These will be the larger, more popular, high-street stores that in the past have operated a similar procedure, for popular products.

Those will be along the lines of London branches of PC World, or Westfield’s outfits.

The 16GB Wi-Fi only version will have a price of £199, whereas the 32GB will come in at £239.

On an unspecified date, a 32GB 4G LTE version will be made available – with a cost of £299.

Google’s Nexus 7 comes with the highest resolution seen in a 7-inch screen-based tablet, at a full HD 1,920 x 1,200.

That is new in this year’s model, along with a quad-core 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro; a rear-facing 5-megapixel camera; wireless charging and the very latest Android 4.3 Jelly Bean OS.

UPDATE:

Google has been in touch this morning, informing us the Google Nexus 7 2013 edition is now available to buy.
