I preordered in GameStop on 6/29, went there today to put more money down on my Nexus 7 (had only put down $50). So I asked, "when do you expect these things in ?", he looks on the computer and says "looks like in 2 days, Thursday 7/12". I was shocked ! It even says 7/12 on my new receipt !

Wow, this is great news...  I hoped they would send a confirmation email with tracking number before it was shipped, but maybe they'll drop them in the mail today or tomorrow and surprise everyone. 

Wonder who in here will get theirs first :-D

I am off work tomorrow and I was really hoping that I would have it.  But sadly my card has not been charged yet and my google wallet account status still only shows that i ordered it on June 27th. 

I guess my last hope is that they shipped them without letting us know yet, but I find that somewhat doubtful. 

Amazon really does have the best customer experience of any website, you find out everything right away. 

Fingers are crossed that we hear something today and get it tomorrow!!

I saw the charge pending two weekends ago so I thought they had already debited my account, but now that I look it never went through.  I guess they did a check to verify the funds were there then pulled it out.  My receipt shows they'll charge when it ships, so I guess that'll be my first clue when it's on its way.

Thanks Drew, you're right, I can take it on my cruise. All I have to do now is hide it from my 12 year old nephew. He saw my Kindle Fire, and then got one for his birthday in April. He is sooooo gonna want the Nexus 7 when/if he sees mine. Not gonna get too excited until I have it in my hands though. The guy at Gamestop said 7/12, my receipt says "SD 7/12", which I assume means shipping date 7/12. So that could either means it ships 7/12, or they will receive it 7/12. We shall see.

Even if I get it after my cruise, what a great thing to come home to :-). Hopefuilly everyong gets theirs this week or weekend.

Just called Office Depot and they said there was a delay and no Nexus 7 tomorrow.  I don't know if it is just a "Texas" thing or nationwide.  Their order form now says "release date to be determined" and the cart says:

Your Pre-order item(s) will be assigned to an order for future delivery based upon the Release Date.

Staples website says "currently out of stock" and you can't even place an order.  When I called Staples, they said they would only fill orders placed online with walk-in stock available only at larger stores.

Not trying to stir the pot, but curious.  My order is a Google preorder and so is my neighbor's, but we are tired of sitting in our tents next to the mailbox just staring at each other!

You betcha :) !! 

As an update, an article just came out that said all Office Depots were instructed not to sell or even display the 7 until further notice, even if they had it in stock.  Maybe Google?

It will be interesting to see if "Big G" has not pulled the plug on orders from Staples and Office Depot and if they do not make sure that their pre-orders hit doors before Staples and Office Depot. So if you pre-ordered from Google Play, I would be feeling really good at this point and if you see your credit card charged by tomorrow feel really good.  ;D

I just saw this post:
PastorOfMuppetzQ says:
I just got off the phone with google… she said for sure not today but “maybe” this week but for sure by next week…. not sure if that helps anyone…. she also said that although there are stories of stores getting it tomorrow they wont be selling it.

sounds more and more like Google have stalked store's inventory for a wide release but are concious of dedicated pre-order'rs. :) Between this and Google's recent 4.1.1 update, it sounds like Google is getting ready to let their baby go! Can't wait.
