The 16GB and 32GB WiFi-only models of the second generation Nexus 7 tablet are now available through Google Play and Best Buy. For some unknown reason, Best Buy lists the tablet as in stock, while Google Play is sticking to the originally announced July 30th shipping date. The new Nexus 7 LTE model from AT&T, Verizon and T-Mobile is still a "couple of weeks" away.
The 16GB model is $229, and the 32GB version is $269 from both Google and Best Buy. Both models are powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor, 2GB of RAM and Android 4.3. The new tablet boasts a 7-inch 1920x1200 HD display (323 ppi), a 1.2MP front-facing camera, a 5MP rear-facing camera, built-in wireless charging, NFC and Bluetooth 4.0 support. Other features include SlimPort support, stereo speakers, surround sound and up to 9 hours of active use.
