Just after giving the 8GB Nexus 7 "In Stock" status, Google has published an official update on the 7's pre-order shipping situation.  The statement, which should placate users who have felt in the dark about the status of their Nexus 7 orders, explains that all standalone 8GB Nexus 7 orders (without cases or other accessories) have been shipped, and that by the end of the day July 19th, all standalone 16GB orders placed through July 11th will be shipped as well (including upgraded overnight shipping).

Those who ordered their tablet with accessories (or a Nexus Q) should expect the 7 to ship this week with overnight shipping, with accessories potentially coming in separate shipments.

The statement also provides updates for Canada, the UK and Australia.

In the US:

We’ve shipped all standalone Nexus 7 8GB orders (e.g.: those without a case, charger or Nexus Q). By the end of day on July 19 (PDT), we will have shipped all standalone Nexus 7 16GB orders placed through July 11 (PDT), and upgraded these orders to overnight shipping. We will process the remaining standalone Nexus 7 16GB orders by the end of next week with overnight shipping.

If you ordered your tablet with a case, charger or Nexus Q, your Nexus 7 will ship this week with overnight shipping, in some cases ahead of the rest of your order. But don’t worry, the rest of your order will be on its way soon.

In Canada:

We’ve shipped all Nexus 7 8GB orders. We are in the process of shipping Nexus 7 16GB orders and will ship them in 1-2 weeks.

In the UK:

All Nexus 7 8GB orders will ship by July 20 (BST). All Nexus 7 16GB orders placed through June 30 (BST), will ship by July 20 (BST). The remaining Nexus 7 16GB orders will ship next week.

In Australia:

All Nexus 7 8GB and Nexus 7 16GB orders will be fulfilled by the end of day on July 19 (AEST) and will arrive in 3-5 days.

There's no doubt some customers are feeling left out of the loop in the Nexus 7 launch, but this statement at least shows that Google is attempting to clear things up and get units out the door as fast as possible, and that the long wait is almost over.

    And what if I buy a 16Gb one now? Besides "You're Fed" and all that.

    So much for "Two Day Shipping", Google Australia.

    I ordered July 11 and just now got the same message from Google. Which means, I can look for delivery Friday . . . maybe.

    The amusing thing is I wasn't going to pre-order as I never do that for electronics and the reason why I don't is because I like to see if there are any hardware/software issues. Funny that the reason I now regret pre ordering (always go with your first instinct if it is logical) is not that but something I didn't think would happen from a company as big as them and with a product as hyped as this. HOW CLUELESS do you have to be to screw up your big product launch? I think what really makes it awesome is the fact Google is such a huge company. How pathetic.

    First and last order from these tools and I will make sure nobody I know ever directly orders anything from them.

    Oh and I like how I got charged 20 bucks for shipping and I will probably have to wait over a week seeing as I am in Canada. Thanks Google!

      If I could I would +1 this.

      Pre-ordering a high-demand product is always fraught with issues, esp hardware. I ordered my Galaxy Nexus phone direct from Google a few months ago, had 0 issues, it arrived in a couple of days. I'd do it again in a heartbeat.

    • Tyler Chappell

      LOL @ how many of your posts on Disqus are about this, stating how useless Google is etc. What did you expect from a software/advertising company? You really think they would have the logistics right when it came to shipping all of these devices?
      Grow up.

      This is Google's first launch of a major hardware consumer product. They have a lot to learn, but they need to start somewhere. Just like their Play Store, they're new to the content and product delivery business, unlike Apple and Amazon.

    Just read their message myself, and I find this rather disconcerting. I was on the fence about trying out some content from the Google play store (instead of, say, Amazon), but I am now 100% certain that I will get all my movie, music and ebook downloads from third-party vendors.

    Not clear whether they will charge me more for the overnight shipping either...

    Got mine Today

      Same here. It's awesome.

  • NickAVV

    I got mine earlier today, very happy with it so far

  • markr64

    I got an email stating the same thing. It still Sucks.

  • Mike

    So by shipped they mean charged my credit card and printed a label. 24hrs and UPS still can't track package as it has not arrived at their facility. :-(

  • fixxmyhead

    Got mine today

    Sent from my nexus 7 :D

  • amish

    Loving my nexus. Slightly singed by GameStop honoring preorder before Google 2 day shipping, but it is still within timeframe of mid-july.

  • Andreas

    Mine shipped this very morning (16 GB - UK) with a next day delivery (through TNT)

  • timshep

    In uk and my email is different from this statement. I ordered on 28/6 so according to statement both my 8 & 16gb units should come on Saturday next day from sending by 20th. Are they going next day at weekend?, but email states ' All Nexus 7 8GB orders will ship by July 20, and Nexus 7 16GB orders will ship by next week.' Suggesting my 16 will be next week.

  • Arnie

    I received my Nexus this morning in the UK. Ordered 16gb whilst watching the 1st day key note conference. Awesome piece of kit. Really happy with the whole process.

  • vperl

    32 GB is better
