Nexus 7 now available though Google's online store

Google has begun selling its Nexus 7 Android tablet through its online store in Australia

Google has begun selling its Nexus 7 Android tablet through its online store in Australia, the company has announced.

The new Nexus 7 is officially available through Google's Play Store online, almost three weeks after the tablet officially went on sale through selected Australian retail stores, and almost two months after Google officially unveiled the device globally.

The 16GB Wi-Fi model of the new Nexus 7 sells for $299, while the 32GB Wi-Fi model is available for $339.

The new pricing represents an increase of $50 and $40, respectively, compared to last year's Nexus 7.

Google also confirmed it has started selling a 32GB Wi-Fi+LTE version of the Nexus 7 for $439.

All three models have a listed dispatch time of between 1-2 days and include free shipping for a "limited time".

The new Nexus 7 tablet features a slightly different design and has a host of upgraded specifications compared to its predecessor, headed by a full HD display.

The tablet is also 2mm thinner (8.65mm) than the original, weighs 50g lighter (290g) and includes a 5-megapixel rear-camera, a feature that wasn't present on the first tablet.

The Nexus 7 is also available now through JB Hi-Fi, Harvey Norman and Dick Smith retail stores across Australia.
