Google Nexus 7 to start at £199, UK rollout at least a month awayThe new Google Nexus 7 tablet has popped up for pre-order at a couple of UK retailers' websites, and it looks like the price premium Google is charging for the new model has translated across the Atlantic.

In fact it seems to have grown, with a $30 price bump in the US having somehow been converted to a £40 increase this side of the pond.

In other words the 16GB Wi-Fi Nexus 7 will set you back £199.99 when it goes on sale, while the 32GB version has been priced at £239.99. That's what both PC World/Currys and eBuyer have pegged the new Nexus 7 at, though they differ slightly on when it'll actually be in stock.

The Dixons Group pair reckon it'll be September 13 before the new Google tablet is available, while eBuyer is more optimistic, saying it'll be the end of August.

The Inquirer has separately confirmed, meanwhile, that the flagship 32GB LTE variant of the Nexus 7 will be landing on local shores in the “coming weeks” , and will retail for £299.

The second-generation Google Nexus 7 will be sold directly from Google Play, and will also be avaialble through Amazon, Argos, Asda, Currys, Carphone Warehouse, eBuyer, John Lewis, PC World, Shop Direct, Sainsbury's and Tesco.
