With just a couple short hours left until Google is expected to announce the new Nexus 7, Best Buy has decided to just put it up for pre-order already. What the listing does is confirm a lot of what we knew about the device. Pricing is set to be very low at just $229 for the 16GB model and $269 for the 32GB model. So far, the Wi-Fi models have been the only ones to crop up; maybe the LTE versions will be released a bit later. Here’s a full rundown of the specs from Best Buy:

  • 7-inch 1920 x 1200 display
  • 1.5GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Pro processor
  • 2GB RAM
  • 16GB or 32GB storage
  • 5MP rear camera, 1.2MP front-facing camera
  • Android 4.3 Jelly Bean
  • Bluetooth 4.0
  • 11.2 ounces, 0.3-inches thick

There are also a few pictures of the device, but we’ve already seen most of them thanks to previous leaks. So far, the new Nexus 7 is shaping up to be a powerful successor to last year’s model. That high-res screen is certainly going to be a very nice addition to the tablet.

Are you planning to order a Nexus 7?
