If you have pre-ordered your Nexus 7 tablet directly from Google, we have some good news for you. Google Play via their Google+ handle announced that they “started shipping Nexus 7 pre-orders today. So we may be looking at deliveries next week since Google may be using a 2-day shipping service via UPS.

There are also reports out there that folks who are calling Google Play to inquire about their pre-orders are being hit by an automated message telling them that they’re shipping the Nexus 7 today. Here is the full message:
“We’re now shipping Nexus 7 pre-orders. The first wave of orders are going out today and all pre-orders are scheduled to ship within the next 3 business days. Once your order has shipped you will receive a confirmation email and tracking number.”
