Earlier today, Google announced that the new LTE Nexus 7 was now available for purchase from the Play Stores in 9 countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, UK, Japan, Korea and U.S. For some reason, the company has neglected to mention Italy, which just got the Devices (Dispositivi) section added to the Play Store for the first time ever.

The only devices available at the moment are all three flavors of the Nexus 7:

The Nexus 10 and Nexus 4 are nowhere to be found, which isn't too surprising considering they're now almost a year old. Hopefully, this means Italy will participate in all future Nexus launches, one of which may be upon us soon.

It's worth pointing out that for the moment shipping is not available to Vatican city, Livigno, San Marino, and Campione d'Italia as per the country availability document.

    • bL4Ck

      yes, man we had to wait so long, and deal with LG bull about selling a device outside of Google official store at full retail price (599e), fortunately they retracted and waited a bit longer to sell it at the official Google price.

    • Mattia

    It's worth pointing out that for the moment shipping is not available to Vatican city, Livigno, San Marino, and Campione d'Italia as per the country availability document.

    • Angelo Allegra

      That's because Livigno and Campione are peculiar locations: they enjoy a special tax status as a duty-free area. Italian VAT is not paid there.
      San Marino is kind of italian but enjoys also some fiscal exemptions and a relative indipendence as a state-inside-a-state.
      Same goes with the Vatican, obviously.

  • Richard

    I think that the source of this news should be androidworld.it ....

  • SxperiaS

    Google Why Y no sell In Portugal!!!

  • cesar suarez

    argentina :(

  • DannyBiker

    Now do Belgium Google...

    • Jay

      Yes, launch it in Belgium . The Nexus 7 was available in retail store for the same price than on the Play store (249€ for 32Gb wifi ) but I had to buy my nexus 4 in Germany in a retail store for 350€ for the 16Gb version. Than they launch it in retail store for 450€ for the same version. No nexus 10 on sight in Belgium (a part from online shops, amazon etc.) :-(

  • NathanDrago

    I think they heard me screaming "MAMMA MIA" in the other side of the city.
    It's finally happened!! I still can't believe it,

    • BKK
