While the 8GB Nexus 7 is expected to remain a Google Play exclusive, the 16GB model is tipped to make its way to a number of other retailers. As of right now, you can pre-order your 16GB Nexus 7 from Ebuyer.
Pricing remains the same, so you’re looking at £199 for a 16GB Asus Nexus 7, rocking a quad-core Tegra 3 processor, 7in IPS display, and a generous handful of Jelly Bean (Android 4.1).
However, it’s not clear if you’ll qualify for the £15 credit on offer at Google Play. Going down the direct route, you’ll also bag a free copy of Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Certainly, there’s no mention of either – £15 credit or Transformers – in the Ebuyer item description.
The Asus Nexus 7 is also tipped to make its way to PC World, Currys, Carphone Warehouse, HMV and Tesco, with in-store stock expected around July 27.
