Continuing the bizarre Google Nexus 7 release, Gamestop now has the go ahead to sell the Nexus 7 tablet.
Gamestop reached out to let GottaBeMobile know that users that pre-ordered the Google Nexus 7 can head in to their Gamestop location to pick it up today.
This is great news for Gamestop buyers, but disappointing for those who are still waiting for pre-orders to ship from Google.
Most of Gamestop’s Nexus 7 tablet stock is on hold for users who pre-ordered the device, but the company says, “There may be some very limited quantities” available to purchase.
Users who don’t get in on the limited quantities can take part in the new Nexus 7 pre-order at Gamestop for delivery by August 7th. To pre-order for the next delivery of the Nexus 7, stop in at the closest Gamestop.
This marks the first official Google Nexus 7 release, and it seems fitting that Gamestop is the first place users can grab the device at retail considering the role Gamestop could play in promoting the tablet.
There’s still no word on Office Depot’s Google Nexus 7 release. The retailer sent an email out this morning with a link to the Nexus 7 on Office Depot’s website, but it’s only for pre-order. No word on when Office Depot will sell the Nexus 7 in stores.
The Nexus 7 includes $25 in Google Play credit to give users a start on finding Android games. The Nexus 7 is the first Android tablet with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, Google’s latest version of Android.
