The updated Nexus 7 has already started shipping early in the US, but our kindly neighbors to the north haven't seen a mass influx of Nexus tablets yet. There is at least a trickle today as Staples, Best Buy, and Future Shop are beginning to show availability.

Staples is still selling orders online with 1-day shipping. Most stores are also showing it as in stock. Best Buy is sold out online, but a few stores still have units available for pickup. Future Shop is also cleaned out online, but offers the new Nexus 7 at a few retail locations. The price for the 16GB tablet at all stores is $249.99 in Canadian money.

The 32GB version has yet to break cover, but if you're desperate to get your paws on the new Nexus 7, you might want to step on it before everyone is sold out.

    32 GB Nexus 7 (2012) or 16 GB Nexus 7 (2013) for $249 ... hmmm... lol.

  • Walkop

    $20 more? Odd. The Nexus 10, at a much higher price point, is only $10 more here. Why does it cost $20 more for a MUCH cheaper device here?

    Wierd. Either way, I'll probably get one as a gift for a friend! It's an insane tablet.

  • Canada

    We're excited!

  • Homer

    *sigh* It's sold out everywhere...

  • Jon

    Picked mine up at my local staples as soon as news broke this morning that they were in stock! Had to beg the manager to release it to me for some reason.

    Now bring us Chromecast, please!

  • Tony Sarju

    Eagerly awaiting the 32GB model to be available. :(

  • Samuel Dionne

    Staples seem to still have some.

  • Bob in Canada

    I'm all over the Nexus V2 once the 32Gb model is available in Canada. Odd though that after the supply chain issues Google had with the first-gen Nexus, they still don't have enough in production to meet the expected high demand for the latest model.

    Is $249 the final price? What about HST of $31.65 if you are ordering from Toronto. So isn't the actual price around $275? Can someone explain how does this work in Canada, kind of confusing. I was gonna ask my brother who lives in Toronto to buy one for me, so want to calculate how much it's gonna cost? I am from Ireland by the way.

    I really dont know why theres only 16 gb available in canada and for a higher price I live in canada and really want one
