Google's new Nexus 7 to launch next week according to leaked OfficeMax document
Wednesday, 17 July 2013
Is a proper successor to the Nexus 7 coming at next week's Google event? Internal OfficeMax documents obtained by Engadget suggest it's a very real possibility. The leaked visual planning instructions make specific mention of a new 32GB version of Google's 7-inch tablet, complete with a new UPC and OfficeMax item number. The revised Nexus 7 is allegedly set to arrive at OfficeMax stores as early as July 20th, though we can't imagine it would go on sale prior to Google's July 24th gathering.
The retailer wants its stores to place the "new Nexus 7" next to the current (but apparently soon to be "old") model. It appears OfficeMax will be selling both devices simultaneously, though it remains to be seen how long Google will continue...
Everyone who wants a shiny new Nexus 7 tablet should head to Google Play right now. Google announced that the next-generation Nexus 7 is now available to order on the Google Play store, days before its expected retail launch.
