Best Buy seems to enjoy beating Google to the punch on the second generation Nexus 7. The electronics retail giant opened pre-orders for the device before Google had even confirmed its existence, and now those pre orders have began to ship to customers four days before Google releases the device to the public.

During the Nexus 7 launch event, Google said that the device would begin hitting retail shelves and shipping to customers on July 30, but The Verge has confirmed that Best Buy has started shipping out pre-ordered units. They have also confirmed that the Union Square Best Buy in San Francisco actually has stock for in-store purchases today.

 

Google's second-gen Nexus 7 features a 1920 x 1200 pixel display, a 5-megapixel camera, and a much faster processor than the first-gen model. RAM has also doubled to 2GB, and the device is overall thinner and lighter. It features Google's latest version of Android Jelly Bean, version 4.3. The 16GB model is retailing for $229, while the 32GB version will set you back $269.
