16GB Google Nexus 7 coming to UK retail stores

As I am sure everyone now knows, Google introduced their Jelly Bean slate the Google Nexus 7 during their annual conference yesterday, and it appears that over here in the United Kingdom, any of the Android faithful wanting to pick up the Google Nexus 7 would have to do so via Google Play.

However this is now not the case when it comes to the 16GB version of the Google Nexus 7, as according to the guys over at Slash Gear, the guys at Engadget have has it confirmed by Asus that the 16GB version of the Android Jelly Bean tablet will become available in UK retail stores.

Apparently the Google Nexus 7 tablet will be offered by such retail stores as Comet, Dixons, PC World and Carphone Warehouse, with stores receiving shipments of the Android slate as of the 20th of next month, but the official selling date for retailers is the 27th of July.

So there you go, if you want to be able to handle the Nexus 7 tablet before purchasing the device you’ll soon be able to visit one of those UK stores to do so, but it will only be the 16GB model as the 8GB version is exclusive to the Google Play store apparently.

The Google Nexus 7 tablet 16GB will command a price tag of £199.99 from the Carphone Warehouse standalone, or for free on a tethered contract according to the press release, whilst the 8GB slate from Google Play will set you back £159.

So any of our UK readers hoping to pick up the Google Nexus 7 once it becomes available, either via Google Play or from one of the shops above?
