Google begins shipping Nexus 7 preorders

Good news, everyone. Those of you who preordered the Nexus 7 tablet from the Google Play Store should be receiving shipping notices over the next few days. Google runs an automated message on their Play Store customer service line, and today the message changed over to announce that the tablets will be shipped out to customers today, Monday, and Tuesday in the order in which they were received.

Further, in true Dr. Seuss fashion, Google took to the Twitters to confirm that they have indeed begun shipping out tablets today, where the following rhyming tweet was issued.

The moved sparked cheers of glee over at XDA and Reddit, where users have 500+ page forums dedicated to posts like “When the #$@! is my Nexus 7 shipping?!?” Assuming the latest shipping date is Tuesday, and Google forced preorders into 2-day shipping, the latest these tablets should arrive on doorsteps is July 20th. Yep, Google’s made good on its promise of a mid-July delivery.

We know several of you readers preordered the Nexus 7, and I guarantee that mine can’t come soon enough! Anyone lucky enough to get a hand on one yet? Sound off below.
