History has shown that Google more often than not take their own sweet time in delivering its range of Nexus tablets as well as smartphones to Japan since it has launched in the US, but at the very least, they do seem to be improving. In fact, it has just been announced that Google will be delivering the newly refreshed Nexus 7 (which we have reviewed by the way), sporting a spanking new 1,900 x 1,200 resolution display as well as a 5-megapixel shooter, and is said to make landfall in Japan this coming Wednesday, that would be August 28th.
If you want to pick up the 16GB model, then you would need to fork out 27,800 yen for it, while those who want the 32GB model will have to churn out 33,800 yen a pop. Folks who reside in the Land of the Rising Sun and have kept their fingers crossed for a LTE model will be pleased to hear that such a device will also be on its way, hitting Japan as a SIM-unlocked device sometime in the middle of September onwards. It will arrive off-contract for a wee bit less than 40,000 yen, and according to Google, this bad boy will run on all three of Japan’s major carriers (and they are DoCoMo, Softbank and KDDI’s au) without breaking a sweat. Better late than never applies here, don’t you think so?
