We've just had word from ASUS that the 16GB variant of the Nexus 7 will arrive on UK shelves on July 27th -- slightly later than the 8GB model, which will be sold exclusively through Google Play from mid-July. Brits are looking at £159 for the 8GB tablet and £199 for 16GB. The latter is actually shipping to big stores like PC World, Comet, Tesco and eBuyer around July 20th, so those who pre-order may end up signing for that Special Delivery even earlier.

Update: the 16GB slate will also be sold through Carphone Warehouse, either for the same price as above or free on a tethered contract (but check those sums before signing up, obviously).

Error at Check-out:

No micro SD card slot

screen is too small! im going to wait for the Microsoft surface RT edition

why in gods name no SD slot a massive pain in the backside

in for one 16GB but error checking out..... awesome... Google play store Device launched moments ago.

I ve had all manner of tablet sizes and I basically just require one for reading and movies on the move so this will be just fine and its portable as well.

I was going to post this but I've been too busy trying to bloody order one

I keep getting errors at the checkout.

Seriously considering putting my Touchpad on the bay and pre-ording this (or the 16GB for 199). I wonder what the delivery cost will be.

Insane pricing for this, spec is fantastic for such a low priced tablet. This thing is going to sell like hotcakes. Shame there is no 10 inch version.

It's a great price for what it is and I'm an apple fan.

Damn, no micro SD - could be a deal breaker - decisions (it's not working in any case yet, so I have time )

yeah seven inch screens are fine, nice to hold and watch tv or read

gotta be a 16gb one. I just cant believe they would leave it out, its insanity.

No SD and only 8gb, what a disappointment

It's a cracking price for a tablet of these specs. I'll be buying the 16gb version for £199 as soon as the checkout works :P

anyone know if the new acer A110 has a micro sd slot?

Great price and a good move by Google, Kindle Fire 2 shouldn't be far off and it should come to the UK so nice to see Google getting in early with it.

Great piece of equipment, hot from me.

Really tempted!

How long before the store falls over completely? This is about to go super nova

Its going to get very hot

No sd card cos you're probably supposed to use the cloud. Stupid, I know... What's wrong with cloud AND local storage.

If it has NFC can we share the Galaxy S3s micro SD with it?

No micro SD as that way they can charge more for the higher memory versions

nice

Amazing specs, go on Google!

No SD is pretty stupid.

But besides that, the spec is excellent at this price! Suspect the Chinese imports are going to have to drop VERY sharply in price now!

No SD card slot, voted cold.

USB hosting in Android 4.0 and higher so you can attached a USB storage device ...HDD, SDD etc....

This just killed of Chinese tablets sales at these prices

Considering selling my ipad 3 and getting this. Only problem is I have loads of ipad games that ive hardly played

No SD Actually, I might get the 16gb though :):{

No SD slot

250 Degrees in less than 20 mins and the store doesn't even work heh

looks good!

Why would you want to sell an Ipad with a larger screen for this ?

Why is selling something for the RRP a hot deal? I will buy though.

Will people stop saying "no sd slot" we know this by now for gods sake.
