GameStop to carry the Nexus 7, now taking preorders

GameStop Nexus 7

 

I’ll say this of GameStop: they’ve done an excellent job of seeing the writing on the wall regarding the future of gaming and adapting their sales structure accordingly. Recognizing the growing trend of mobile gaming and then carrying the products that play those games was a smart move. In that vein, the company has announced that they’ll be carrying Google’s new Nexus 7 tablet and they’ve got the device up for pre-order, though the only one I saw was the 16 GB version for $249.99. While I would personally rather get it from Google at the source, it’s great to see that there’s going to be plenty of mainstream purchase options to get the device into as many hands as possible. Remember, more market share equals more development!

Hit up the link below to preorder your Nexus 7 from GameStop, and let us know in the comments: Have you already ordered your Nexus 7 and if not, are you planning on getting one?

    You cannot pre-order it online at GameStop anymore at that link. Nor find it if you do a search for “Nexus” or “Nexus 7″ (though you will get a hit for a ZAG screen protector, BIG WOOP!!)

    This could mean they are either out of the item (online), haven’t updated to a new page taking off the “Pre-Order” message as (so I have heard) the Google Play pre-orders have started to ship or they were told to stop and are waiting on further word by Google. See below link:
