I love the innovations that Google is introducing to maximize the user experience while on the web and hope that we'll get to see more of it in future. The nexus 7 tab will start shipping to US, Australia and other European market in the mid of July. However, it's already available for pre-order. It will probably be available to other part of world later on around September, but we'll have to wait for the company to announce an official date.
