After the initial UK launch, the Google Nexus 7, the tablet computer manufactured by Asus, stopped reaching other European customers. But it was just a temporary pause it seems, as recently Asus broke the news to their Italian Facebook fans about a September launch at €250. And now the Google-branded, 7-inch tablet has also appeared in France and Germany.
French retail site Fnac has already posted the Android device available for pre-order until September 3, when the device will arrive in their stores and it looks like the manufacturer, Asus, is reserving a corner in a Berlin store, but only the 16 GB version has been spotted so far.
In addition to Fnac, Darty and Boulanger were heard to be preparing their own Google Nexus 7 page for their online store, as well as their brick-and-mortar stores. But the price seems to be final: €250 for the 16 GB version.
If we take the Fnac site’s availability date as granted, future Nexus 7 tablet owners can prepare for a September 3 launch in these countries, helping the penetration of the Jelly Beam tablet into European markets. However, sources couldn’t confirm whether the Nexus 7's €250 price includes a Play Store credit like in the US, where you get $25 credit if you purchase the device.
