Home Mobility Nexus 7 here soon - but at a price

If the Nexus 7 tablet has you all a-quiver, you'll only have to wait a few weeks for the first deliveries to arrive in Australia. And unlike some smartphones, it's going to be widely available from plenty of retailers.

The Nexus 7 caused a splash at Google I/O, and the first deliveries are due in Australia by the end of this month. Priced at $319 for the 16GB configuration, it will be available from Harvey Norman, JB Hi Fi, Dick Smith, Bing Lee, The Good Guys, Retravision, Radio Rentals, Officeworks, EB Games, Costco, BSR, and authorised Asus resellers.

As feared by some, that price is somewhat higher than $US249, even when GST is taken into account - $269 would have been closer. But them's the breaks.

On the other hand, a $25 Google Play voucher is included "for a limited time", and Google and Asus seem to be positioning the Nexus 7 as a media consumption and games device.

Specs of the new tablet include a 7in, 1280x800 multitouch screen with scratch-resistant Corning FIT glass, Nvidia Tegra 3 quad-core processor, and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean. Battery life is said to be 9.5 hours.

An optional smart cover is offered in a choice of six colours.
