Google follows Best Buy's lead, opens up sale of Nexus 7 in Play Store

Google releases Nexus 7 tablet for sale in the Google Play Store 4 days ahead of its previous scheduled date

Earlier this morning, I reported that Best Buy had decided to skip Google's previously announced launch date for its second generation Nexus 7 and had started selling the devices in-store and online today. Apparently Google has decided to forgo their own words as well, and has just now listed the new Nexus 7 for sale in the Google Play Store.


Google made the announcement on Twitter via its @GooglePlay account. Originally, the device was not supposed to hit the retail market until July 30, but apparently Best Buy, Amazon, Game Stop, and Walmart have all decided to go ahead and start selling the new 7-inch tablet.
