Android Mobile New Zealand donned their detective cap and reported that New Zealand will be getting the Nexus 7 tablet from Google, even though Google themselves haven't confirmed that NZ would be getting the 7-inch slate.
The 16GB version of the Nexus 7 will be made available from mid-July, with the 8GB model being an exclusive to the Google Play Store. The biggest news I find from this is the $439 NZD price, considering Google launched it for $199 in the U.S.
But, with high import costs, a local purchase might make more sense, so would the local warranty. If you're based in NZ, this should be great news for you.
