After a lonesome stint on the US Play Store (and various random retailers across the world) with only T-Mobile SIMs available, the LTE Nexus 7 is now available on the Play Store in nine countries: Australia, Canada, Germany, Spain, France, Italy, UK, Japan, South Korea, and the United States. Here's a URL that should work to get to the product listing.

N7

The US version is available with AT&T and T-Mobile SIMs, but as some have suspected, Verizon SIMs remain MIA, and may for the foreseeable future.

Head on over to the Play Store to get yours now.

    Netherlands is always late or it doesn't even come here. Is it really expensive for Google to release it in more countries?

    • Vibrunazo

      It's not only "expensive", the biggest barrier is that it takes a lot of time to adapt to each country's laws, culture, marketing etc. For each country they have to build a lot of deals with local companies for all kinds of services. From online digital deals, to actual infrastructure, distribution, translations and marketing. That takes time.

      I'm sure they would love to launch internationally, and I would love to be able to have it on my own country. But it's understandably very hard to do. Fortunately, they have slowly but surely been growing their international presence. So there's hope :)

        Shouldn't be that difficult to ship to another country from within the EU. That's the main point of the single market here.

          Just bought some cycling gear from the UK with free shipping to Austria. Google is shitting us, nothing else.

        Google is just lazy. There are much smaller companies that ship and sell their products in a lot more countries. I still don't understand how you can't buy a damn gift card for the play store outside the US (and UK).

        Fyi, that's where Apple kicks Google's ass. I hate that fruit company, but they know how to sell. And their products are available everywhere.

        A code to enter in a field so I can buy somesome apps. They cpuld distribute it and sell it online, just need an email with a code. But somehow, it's still impossible for Google to realize. Really sad.
