Google’s Nexus 7 to ship between July 12-17, according to Staples

The Nexus 7 tablet was announced at Google I/O and many of you, including myself, have pre-ordered it without knowing when it will exactly launch during the month of July. That has changed because according to Staples’s listing of the tablet, the Nexus 7 will arrive to those who reserved it through their site “no earlier than July 13.” The orders placed before July 10 will ship between July 12 and July 17.

The fact that the description mentions that the tablet won’t hit customers no earlier than the 13th could mean that next Friday is the official launch date or some type of embargo that Google has imposed on retailers. And if you worried about the $25 Google Play credit, rest assured that you will get it.

Are you getting yours from Staples?

    I wished had known. I tried to cancel Nexus 7 from Google and Google refused. They said refuse at UPS delivery. So they can make something from the S&H no doubt. Google’s Customer Service does not exist.

      Who knows, you may get it early.

    My sister found out that the USB adopter would not support SD and USB from Google help personal. She then tried to cancel on July 5th. Google is shipping 2nd day. Google still refuses to give a shipping date other then mid July. This show Google treated her. Feel free to cut and paste this letter and repost anywhere you like.

    Hello Carol,

    At this point it is no longer possible to cancel this preorder. Preorder shipment processing on your order has begun, which means that our shipping provider is moving forward with delivery preparation.

    Once you receive shipment confirmation and tracking number via email, I recommend leaving a prominent note on the door to let our shipping provider know that you’re refusing delivery of the package. In some cases our shipping provider has returned packages if their drivers see a note for refusal of delivery. The note should include the following:

    - Refuse delivery-Return to Sender – Include signature – Include tracking #

    If your package is returned due to refusal of delivery, your order will be cancelled and refunded within 2 weeks.

    If the package is successfully delivered in spite of the delivery refusal note on your door, you can still refuse delivery of unopened packages within 5 days of delivery. To do so, contact our shipping provider directly to schedule a pick up of your package. Make sure to let them know that the pickup is specifically because you’re refusing delivery.

    IMPORTANT: Don’t open the package. Our shipping provider will not allow refusal of delivery for opened packages.”
