The new Nexus 7, which has already been fully revealed and benchmarked earlier today, just popped up on BestBuy.com for pre-order in both 16 and 32 GB capacities. As expected, the refreshed 2013 N7 runs:

  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean (you can read about some of the new Android 4.3 features here)
  • Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro @ 1.5GHz processor with Adreno 320 GPU
  • 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • 7" 1920x1200 IPS display with antifingerprint and scratch-resistant glass
  • 16/32GB internal storage
  • 5MP rear and 1.2MP front-facing cameras
  • SlimPort
  • BT 4.0
  • Notification LED
  • No SD card (did you really expect one?)
  • 802.11a/b/g/n Wi-Fi
  • NFC
  • Qi wireless charging-compatible
  • 3,950 mAh battery (up to 9 hours of active use)
  • 7.9" x 4.5" x 0.3"
  • 11.2oz

Wireless charging isn't mentioned, so I'm becoming less and less convinced it's capable of such a feat. Our tipster also says he doesn't think there's wireless charging of any kind here. Sorry if you were hoping for one!

As expected, the 16GB variant is listed for $229.99 while the 32GB one will cost you $269.99. The estimated arrival timeframe is July 30th - August 4th, so it's pretty safe to say that the release date will be July 30th, as rumored.

Between the new Nexus 7, Android 4.3, and Chromecasting, I'm really hoping Google will have something else to announce at tomorrow's event.

Update: Sam's Club (32GB, 16GB), PC Connection (32GB, 16GB)
