Updated Nexus 7 Tablet Lands at Best Buy Ahead of Launch Date

Google recently revealed the worst kept secret on the web by formally introducing its second generation Nexus 7 tablet built by ASUS. It's thinner, faster, boasts a better display, and is supposed to be available to purchase July 30, 2013. Don't want to wait? You may not have to, depending on where you live.

There have been reports that those who pre-ordered a new Nexus 7 from Best Buy have already received shipping notifications. Intrigued, we hit up Best Buy's website and sure enough, the electronics retailer is selling the updated Nexus 7 as if it's in stock (there's no mention of a pre-order).

Nexus 7 Best Buy

We checked with some local stores and found a handful listing the tablet as being in stock and available to pick up today. Not all stores have new Nexus 7 inventory, however, so before you make a blind trip to your local (or not so local) Best Buy location, visit the company's website and see which stores have it available (or give them a ring).

The new model Nexus 7 still boasts a 7-inch display, though it's been upgraded to 1920x1200. It also has a 1.5GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM, 16GB or 32GB of built-in storage, 1.2MP front-facing camera, 5MP rear-facing camera, 802.11n Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, Android 4.3 Jelly Bean, and a few other odds and ends.

Two other Android tablet to become available this week worth checking out include the new Pipo M7 Pro ($255) that for about the same price as the new Nexus 7, features a much larger 8.9 inch display with 1900x1200 screen resolution, a Quad core processor, along with built-in GPS navigation... and is packed with features that compare to the new Nexus --

There's also an 8-inch model similar to the mini iPad – the Pipo U8 ($195) -- both these new Android tablets are compatible with Chromecast and also work with Miracast HD Wireless (similar to Apple AirPlay) and unlike the new Chromecast, gives you the ability to display all tablet content as well as movie streaming wirelessly to a TV; and both new models also offer premium speakers, WiFi with both 2.4 and 5.0 GHz frequencies for greater connection, and a premium Windows style User Interface that makes the Android experience much more intuitive and easier to use -- More details on both these models are available at Tablet Sprint- - one of the first sites to carry the new Pipo Series tablets.
